The Order of Worship for This Sunday



Call to Worship 

Friends in Christ, we are gathered to give thanks for all we have received from God's good hands: to praise God's holy name; to acknowledge and confess our sins; to hear God's holy word; and to ask those things needful for life. Let us draw near to God in all humility and celebrate God's infinite goodness and mercy.

Let us gather within the covenant of love, which binds us to God and one another. Let us gather at the table of the Lord to celebrate with thanksgiving the saving acts and presence of Christ. 

Let us gather to remember our baptism into Christ by which we enter into newness of life and are made one with the whole people of God. Let us gather to worship the maker of heaven and earth to whom be blessing and glory and honor forever.

Scripture Reading




Mark 10:32-45 (New Revised Standard Version)

They were on the road, going up to Jerusalem, and Jesus was walking ahead of them; they were amazed, and those who followed were afraid. He took the twelve aside again and began to tell them what was to happen to him, saying, "See, we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be handed over to the chief priests and the scribes, and they will condemn him to death; then they will hand him over to the Gentiles; they will mock him, and spit upon him, and flog him, and kill him; and after three days he will rise again."

James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came forward to him and said to him, "Teacher, we want you to do for us whatever we ask of you." 

And he said to them, "What is it you want me to do for you?" 

And they said to him, "Grant us to sit, one at your right hand and one at your left, in your glory." 

But Jesus said to them, "You do not know what you are asking. Are you able to drink the cup that I drink, or be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with?" 

They replied, "We are able."
Then Jesus said to them, "The cup that I drink you will drink; and with the baptism with which I am baptized, you will be baptized; but to sit at my right hand or at my left is not mine to grant, but it is for those for whom it has been prepared."

When the ten heard this, they began to be angry with James and John. So Jesus called them and said to them, "You know that among the Gentiles those whom they recognize as their rulers lord it over them, and their great ones are tyrants over them. But it is not so among you; but whoever wishes to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wishes to be first among you must be slave of all. For the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life a ransom for many."
