“Live Into Peace!” 

Based on JEzekiel 37:1-14 God asks us, “Can these bones live?

       God promised new life to the Israelites in exile by breathing into a valley full of dry bones. God breathes new life into us so that we
might live passionately for God.

 Order of Worship Service | December 5th, 2021

Prelude: “People, Look East”, tune Besançon, arr. Martin Fallas Shaw

Welcoming & Candle Lighting

Call to Worship
Listen! Our God calls and speaks to us…
Peace is God’s hope for us;
Salvation is God’s gift to us.

See what our God reveals to us…
Righteousness is the path to the kingdom;
Faithfulness is our way through this valley.

How do we prophesy to the dry bones?
God, plant your words and actions deep within us;
Make us your instruments of prophesy and peace!
