Welcome to Riviera Presbyterian Church! If today is your first time worshiping with us,we hope you find this time both meaningful and joyful.
GATHERING IN GOD’S NAME
PRELUDE: GLORIOUS THINGS OF THEE ARE SPOKEN
INTRODUCTION OF SERVICE Rev. Martha Shiverick
CALL TO WORSHIP
We are in the season of Lent, a season to remember the teachings and way of Jesus Christ. It is a season to remember that to follow Christ is to take up our crosses and to be servants to all. A season to remember Jesus’ question “Are you able to drink the cup that I drink?’ Let us worship God!
Lord God, Great I Am, you are living water. As we worship you this day show us who we are: channels of your love and vessels of your grace; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
PROCLAIMING GOD’S WORD
PRAYER OF ILLUMINATION
Living God, through the reading of the scriptures and by the power of your Spirit, may we hear for ourselves the good news. Amen.
