Call to Worship 

*Hymn 358 Dear Lord and Father of Mankind ccli #242496
1 Dear Lord and Father of mankind,
forgive our foolish ways;
reclothe us in our rightful mind,
in purer lives thy service find,
in deeper reverence, praise.

2 In simple trust like theirs who heard
beside the Syrian sea
the gracious calling of the Lord,
let us, like them, without a word
rise up and follow thee.

3 O sabbath rest by Galilee,
O calm of hills above,
where Jesus knelt to share with thee
the silence of eternity,
interpreted by love!

4 Drop thy still dews of quietness,
till all our strivings cease;
take from our souls the strain and stress,
and let our ordered lives confess
the beauty of thy peace.

5 Breathe through the heats of our desire
thy coolness and thy balm;
let sense be dumb, let flesh retire;
speak through the earthquake, wind, and fire,
O still, small voice of calm!
WORDS: John Greenleaf Whittier, 1872  MUSIC: Frederick C. Maker, 1887 ccli #242496

Prayer Hymn 467 Trust and Obey  
1 When we walk with the Lord 
in the light of his word, 
what a glory he sheds on our way! 
While we do his good will, 
he abides with us still, 
and with all who will trust and obey. 

Trust and obey, for there's no other way 
to be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey. 

2 Not a burden we bear, 
not a sorrow we share, 
but our toil he doth richly repay; 
not a grief or a loss, 
not a frown or a cross, 
but is blest if we trust and obey. 

Trust and obey, for there's no other way 
to be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey. 

3 But we never can prove 
the delights of his love 
until all on the altar we lay; 
for the favor he shows, 
for the joy he bestows, 
are for them who will trust and obey.

Trust and obey, for there's no other way 
to be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey. 

4 Then in fellowship sweet 
we will sit at his feet, 
or we'll walk by his side in the way; 
what he says we will do, 
where he sends we will go; 
never fear, only trust and obey. 

Trust and obey, for there's no other way 
to be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey. 

WORDS: John H. Sammis, 1887 MUSIC: Daniel B. Towner, 1887 ccli #242496

Pastoral prayer and Lord’s Prayer 

Our Father, who art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy Name;
Thy kingdom come;
Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven:
Give us this day our daily bread;
And forgive us our trespasses, 
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil:
For thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory, 
For ever and ever. Amen.

Sermon: A Higher Calling

*Hymn of sending forth 344 Lord, You Have Come to the Lakeshore 
1 Lord, You have come to the lakeshore
Looking neither for wealthy nor wise ones
You only asked me to follow humbly 

O Lord, with Your eyes You have searched me
And while smiling have spoken my name
Now my boat's left on the shoreline behind me
By Your side I will seek other seas

2. You know so well my possessions
My boat carries no gold and no weapons
You will find there, my nets and labor

O Lord, with Your eyes You have searched me
And while smiling have spoken my name
Now my boat's left on the shoreline behind me
By Your side I will seek other seas

3. You need my hands full of caring
Through my labors to give others rest
And constant love that keeps on loving

O Lord, with Your eyes You have searched me
And while smiling have spoken my name
Now my boat's left on the shoreline behind me
By Your side I will seek other seas

4. You, who have fished other oceans
Ever longed for by souls who are waiting
My loving friend, as thus You call me

O Lord, with Your eyes You have searched me
And while smiling have spoken my name
Now my boat's left on the shoreline behind me
By Your side I will seek other seas
