We thank you, O God, for the light which wakes us morning by morning; for the light of learning which brings knowledge; but most of all we thank you for the divine light which is reflected in the face of Jesus Christ and which enlightens our lives by the Holy Spirit.
Shine upon us and within us as we come to your light.  Amen.

Pastoral Prayer

The Fellowship of the Word

"Blessed Assurance" by Fanny Crosby

Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine
Oh, what a foretaste of glory divine
Heir of salvation, purchase of God
Born of His spirit, washed in His blood

This is my story, this is my song
Praising my Savior all the day long
This is my story, this is my song
Praising my Savior all the day long
