Sunday Worship 01/16/2022

"Up to the Brim" John 2:1-11

Welcome to virtual worship for Second Presbyterian Church.

You are invited to gather everyone in your household (pets counts too!) to sit around your computer, tablet, phone, or TV and worship God together. If at all possible for you to do this around 10:00 on Sunday morning, that would be wonderful so we can know that we are worshiping together even though we can’t be together physically. You can follow along with the script – when a video is present, just click on it to listen or even sing along. I have found two song choices for each “hymn” a more traditional organ led music is the first (or on the left) and a more contemporary version or song is the second (or on the right). Choose what is best for you or even listen to both if you prefer.

Please let us know that you are worshiping with us this week.

Let us come together (in spirit) and worship God!

CALL TO WORSHIP

One: We come this day, Precious God, as people in need of your steadfast love:
All: with you is the fountain of life; in your Light we see light.
One: We gather this day, Water-changing God, as people looking for signs:
All: with you is the fountain of life; in your Light we see light.
One: We worship this day, Gifting God, as people who confess Jesus as our Lord:
All: with you is the fountain of life; in your Light we see light.

HYMN – What a Fellowship, What a Joy Divine or Joy

PRAYER OF CONFESSION

One: Trusting in the grace of our loving God, let us together confess our sins. 

All: Lord, we need a miracle today.
Like Jesus changing water into wine at the wedding feast in Cana,
we need a miracle today.

We are tired, Lord, of the hurts of this world. We are discouraged
in the face of injustice, war, poverty, and indifference.
We need a miracle today, Lord.
Your steadfast love, like a mighty mountain, will not be moved.
Your gifts, as many as the mighty winds, cannot be counted.
Your glory, like a mighty torch, will not be put out.
Lord, crown us with your love.
Show us your glory, that in you we may be moved to acts of kindness, love, justice, and mercy.
Lord, we need a miracle today. Amen.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON

One: All you who seek God, and who have set your hope on Jesus Christ, hear the good news: we have received forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of God’s grace. As forgiven and beloved children of God, let us set our hope on Christ, and live for the praise of his glory.

All: Hallelujah! Amen.

PRAYER FOR ILLUMINATION 

All: My the words spoken and the thoughts of each of our heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord, our rock and our redeemer. AMEN 

HYMN – Great is Thy Faithfulness
