ORDER FOR THE

PUBLIC WORSHIP of  GOD

The Sixth Sunday after Epiphany                 February 17, 2019

Responsive Call to Worship    (adapted from Psalm 72:11-14)

May all kings fall down before him, all nations serve him!

For he delivers the needy when he calls, the poor and him who has no helper.

From oppression and violence he redeems their life, and precious is their blood in his sight.
