Welcome to the Preakness Reformed Church!
“Here is the Good News: Jesus is not out of his mind; Jesus is not filled with demonic spirits. Rather, Jesus has the mind of God; Jesus is filled with the Holy Spirit – and invites all of us to be of the same mind and same spirit in a new family as his sisters and brothers.”

WELCOME AND ANNOUNCEMENTS
INTROIT Breathe on Me, Breath of God TRENTHAM
(Robert Jackson, 1888)
- CALL TO WORSHIP -selected verses from Psalm 138
I give you thanks, O Lord, with my whole heart; before the gods I sing your praise;
I bow down toward your holy temple and give thanks to your name for your steadfast love and your faithfulness.
All the kings of the earth shall praise you, O Lord, for they have heard the words of your mouth.
They shall sing of the ways of the Lord, for great is the glory of the Lord.
For though the Lord is high, God regards the lowly; but the haughty the Lord perceives from far away.
The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me; your steadfast love, O Lord, endures forever. Do not forsake the work of your hands!
- OPENING HYMN of Praise 709 Jesus Loves Me JESUS LOVES ME
Prayer OF CONFESSION
Lord God, forgive us when we see your miracles all around us and still doubt your power, presence and love. Forgive us when we treat this world and each other with careless indifference or with cruelty. Creator God, create in our hearts confidence and hope. From our lives you can fashion the most delightful miracles that can serve you through acts of mercy and kindness. Help us to find the numerous ways in which we can serve you this week…
(silent prayers of confession)
WORDS OF FORGIVENESS
- PASSING THE PEACE
In the power of the Holy Spirit and love of Christ, let us share signs of peace with one another. The peace of Christ be with you.
And also with you!
(Please greet one another with the peace of Christ.)
