Responsive Call to Worship (Psalm 130)
L: Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord.
C: Lord, hear my voice! Let your ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications!
L:If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities, Lord, who could stand?
C: But there is forgiveness with you, so that you may be revered.
L: I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I hope.
C: My soul waits for the Lord more than those who watch for the morning, more than those who watch for the morning.
L: O Israel, hope in the Lord! For with the Lord there is steadfast love, and with him is great power to redeem.
C: It is he who will redeem Israel from all its iniquities.
Prayers of adoration and confession. Lord’s prayer.

Mission Moment: Families in the Philippines have hope to live again. Nene Guiuan and her family live in Marabut in Samar province, Philippines – an area hard hit by Typhoon Haiyan. While she remembers little of the actual typhoon, Nene does recall leaving her house in disbelief after it had passed. Families lost almost every possession they owned. Homes, food, clothing and livelihoods—nothing was spared. For three days her family ate waterlogged rice, rationed out because they didn’t know how long it would have to last. But fear was replaced with hope once relief packages started to arrive. Presbyterian World Service & Development has supported the ACT Alliance in distributing emergency food and non-food items in the immediate aftermath of the typhoon. ‘I had hope to live again,’ says Nene, along with a message of thankfulness to those who have made this relief possible. ‘Thank you. Super thank you!’
We ask that you do not wear perfume when you come to church, as there are people in the congregation who have an allergic reaction to the scent. Thank you for your understanding.
