Welcome and Announcements
Passing the Peace
Call to Worship
Let us fix our eyes on Jesus,
the author and perfecter of our faith,
who for the joy set before him endured the cross,
scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of God.
Let us consider him who endured such opposition from sinful people, so that we will not grow weary and lose heart.
