Bringing Forth the Light of God’s Presence

*Call to Worship read responsively    Geri Reese, Liturgist


O give thanks to the Lord, make known God’s deeds of power. 

Sing to the Lord; tell of God’s wonderful works.

Jacob and Rachel and Leah, and their sons and daughters, came to Egypt; Israel dwelt in the land of refuge. And the Lord made the people fruitful, made them stronger than their foes, whose hearts turned to hate the people, who dealt craftily with God’s servants. The land of Egypt became a land of bondage for Israel. 

In due time, God sent Moses, Miriam, and Aaron to rescue Israel from slavery. God brought God’s people out of bondage.

Give thanks to the Lord for deeds of power.

Sing to the Lord; tell God’s wonderful works.


*Hymn #378          Amazing Grace 


 *Unison Prayer                                        Geri Reese, Liturgist

 Heavenly Father, what a long period of training Moses had to undergo to be prepared for the work You destined to do in his life. At times I am so impetuous and want things done in my life immediately, and yet I realize You take time to call and train, fashion and hone Your servants, in the things You have prepared for them to do. Develop that same patient spirit and humble heart I see in Moses and remove from my character anything that dishonors Your holy name. This I pray in Jesus’ name, AMEN.
