Living Water, flow through our worship.  Fill the emptiness of our lives with Your abundant love.  Nourish us with your loving presence. 

Draw us ever closer to you, that our empty vessels may be filled and that our dry souls may be transformed into fountains of love, life,

*PSALTER………………................................………..Psalm 36: 5-10 (pg. 771 in the Hymnal)………..................................................................…….Jim Holly

 

Your steadfast love, O Lord, extends to the heavens, your faithfulness to the clouds.

 

Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, your judgments are like the great deep;

O Lord, humans and animals you save!

 

O God, how precious is your steadfast love!  All people may take refuge in the shadow of your wings.

 

They feast on the abundance of your house, and you give them drink from the river of your delights.

 

For with you is the fountain of life; in your light do we see light.

 

O continue your steadfast love to those who know you, and your salvation to the upright of heart!

 

*AFFIRMATION OF FAITH:  Apostles’ Creed - page 881 in hymnal

I believe in God the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth;

And in Jesus Christ His only Son our Lord: who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,

born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; the third day He rose from the

dead; He ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence He shall come
to judge the quick and the dead.I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic* church, the communion of saints,

the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.  Amen.

SCRIPTURE……………………..........................……..…..…John 2: 1-11…………………………...........................................……..Rev. Lynnette Sills

 

1 On the third day there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. 2 Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding. 3 When the wine gave out, the mother of Jesus said to him, “They have no wine.” And Jesus said to her, “Woman, what concern is that to you and to me? My hour has not yet come.” 5 His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.” 6 Now standing there were six stone water jars for the Jewish rites of purification, each holding twenty or thirty gallons. 7 Jesus said to them, “Fill the jars with water.” And they filled them up to the brim. 8 He said to them, “Now draw some out, and take it to the chief steward.” So they took it. 9 When the steward tasted the water that had become wine, and did not know where it came from (though the servants who had drawn the water knew), the steward called the bridegroom 10 and said to him, “Everyone serves the good wine first, and then the inferior wine after the guests have become drunk. But you have kept the good wine until now.” 11 Jesus did this, the first of his signs, in Cana of Galilee, and revealed his glory; and his disciples believed in him.
