CALL TO WORSHIP
Behold a miracle.
A valley full of dry bones is transformed into a people of love and life.
Behold a miracle.
The graves are opened. Death has lost its sting.
Come and worship the one who never forsakes us!
Let us worship the Lord.
 
HYMN: “In Christ There Is No East or West”
In Christ there is no east or west,
In Him no south or north,
But one great fellowship of love
Throughout the whole wide earth.
 
In Him shall true hearts everywhere
Their high communion find;
His service is the golden cord
Close binding all mankind.
Join hands, then brothers of the faith,
Whate’er your race may be.
Who serves my Father as a son,
Is surely kin to me.
In Christ now meet both east and west;
In Him meet south and north.
All Christly souls are one in Him
Throughout the whole wide earth. Amen
 
GATHERING PRAYER
Lord of life, we come to you consumed by our worry and our pain. When we blame you for not being there in our need, forgive us. When we turn away from you in moments of loss, guide us back to your faithful arms. Teach us once more, Merciful One, that you weep when we weep, and rejoice as we find our way home. Amen

SERMON “Dry Bones” Rev. Dr. Judith Scott
 
HYMN: “Take My Life and Let It Be” (verses 1, 5, & 6)
Take my life, and let it be
Consecrated, Lord, to Thee.
Take my moments and my days;
Let them flow in ceaseless praise.
 
Take my will, and make it Thine;
It shall be no longer mine.
Take my heart, it is Thine own;
It shall be Thy royal throne.
 
Take my love, my Lord, I pour
At Thy feet its treasure store.
Take myself, and I will be
Ever, only, all for Thee. 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.
