CALL TO WORSHIP AND OPENING PRAYER.……………...………………………..…Rev. Lynnette Sills

Brothers and Sisters, we are loved by God, who knows us by name and hears and answers us when we call to him.  May our lives praise and magnify our great and awesome God.  We come to worship the one whose image is imprinted within us. Magnificent and Holy One, we long to know you better.  As we make our way in this world, we search for signs that you are with us.  Give us a glimpse of your glorious presence and show us your ways.  May our lives ring out the marvelous message of your goodness, your mercy and your love.  Amen.

PSALTER……………………….Psalm 99: 1-9 (pp. 819-820 in Hymnal)..……….…..………………Jim Holly

 

The Lord reigns; let the peoples tremble! 

The Lord sits enthroned upon the cherubim; let the earth quake!

The Lord is great in Zion, and is exalted over all the peoples.

 

Let them praise your great and wondrous name!

 

Holy is the Lord!

 

Mighty Ruler, lover of justice, you have established equity;

 

you have executed justice and righteousness in Jacob.

 

Extol the Lord our God.  Worship at the Lord’s footstool!

 

Holy is the Lord!

 

Moses and Aaron were among God’s priests,

Samuel also was among those who called on God’s name.

 

They cried to the Lord, who answered them, who spoke to them in the pillar of cloud.

 

They kept God’s testimonies, and the statutes God gave them.

 

O Lord, our God, you answered them;

you were a forgiving God to them, but an avenger of their wrongdoings.

 

Extol the Lord our God, and worship at his holy mountain.

 

Surely the Lord our God is holy!

AFFIRMATION OF FAITH:  Statement of Faith of the Korean M.C. - # 884 in hymnal

We believe in the one God, Creator and sustainer of all things, Father of all nations, the source of all goodness and beauty, all truth and love.

 

We believe in Jesus Christ, God manifest in the flesh, our teacher, example and Redeemer, the Savior of the world.

 

We believe in the Holy Spirit, God present with us for guidance, for comfort, and for strength.

 

We believe in the forgiveness of sins, in the life of love and prayer, and in grace equal to every need.

 

We believe in the Word of God contained in the Old and New Testaments as the sufficient rule both of faith and of practice.

 

We believe in the church, those who are united in the living Lord for the purpose of worship and service.

 

We believe in the reign of God as the divine will realized in human society, and in the family of God, where we are all brothers and sisters.

 

We believe in the final triumph of righteousness and in the life everlasting. Amen.

Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name,

thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread;

and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive  those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil,

for thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory for ever. Amen.

SCRIPTURE …………….…..….............Matthew 22:15-22 (NRSV)……..……….…...……Rev. Lynnette Sills

 

15 Then the Pharisees went and plotted to entrap him in what he said. 16 So they sent their disciples to him, along with the Herodians, saying, “Teacher, we know that you are sincere, and teach the way of God in accordance with truth, and show deference to no one; for you do not regard people with partiality. 17 Tell us, then, what you think. Is it lawful to pay taxes to the emperor, or not?” 18 But Jesus, aware of their malice, said, “Why are you putting me to the test, you hypocrites? 19 Show me the coin used for the tax.” And they brought him a denarius. 20 Then he said to them, “Whose head is this, and whose title?” 21 They answered, “The emperor’s.” Then he said to them, “Give therefore to the emperor the things that are the emperor’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” 22 When they heard this, they were amazed; and they left him and went away.
