Call to Worship - StF 821 (Psalm 99)
The Lord is King;
Let the peoples tremble!
He sits enthroned upon the cherubim;
Let the earth quake!
The Lord is great in Zion!
he is exalted over all the peoples.
Let them praise your great and awesome name;
Holy is he!
Mighty King, lover of justice, you have established equity;
you have executed justice and righteousness in Jacob.
Extol the Lord our God; worship at his footstool. Holy is he.
Moses and Aron were among his priests,
Samuel also was amongthose who called on his name.
They cried to the Lord , and he answeres them.
He spoke to them in the pillar of cloud;
they kept his decrees, and the statues that he gave them.
O Lord our God, you answered them; you were a forgiiving God to them,
but an avanger of thier wrongdoings.
Extol the Lord our God,
and worship at his Holy mountain;
for the Lord our God is Holy.

Matthew 22:15-22 New International Version Paying the Imperial Tax to Caesar
15 Then the Pharisees went out and laid plans to trap him in his words. 16 They sent their disciples to him along
with the Herodians. “Teacher,” they said, “we know that you are a man of integrity and that you teach the way
of God in accordance with the truth. You aren’t swayed by others, because you pay no attention to who
they are. 17 Tell us then, what is your opinion? Is it right to pay the imperial tax to Caesar or not?”
18 But Jesus, knowing their evil intent, said, “You hypocrites, why are you trying to trap me? 19 Show me the
coin used for paying the tax.” They brought him a denarius, 20 and he asked them, “Whose image is this? And
21 “Caesar’s,” they replied.
Then he said to them, “So give back to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and to God what is God’s.”
22 When they heard this, they were amazed. So they left him and went away.
Stf 481 The Lord’s my Shepherd
1 Thessalonians 1: 1 - 10 New International Version
1 Paul, Silas and Timothy,
To the church of the Thessalonians in God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ:
Grace and peace to you.
Thanksgiving for the Thessalonians’ Faith2 We always thank God for all of you and continually mention you in
our prayers. 3 We remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted
by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.
4 For we know, brothers and sisters loved by God, that he has chosen you, 5 because our gospel came to you
not simply with words but also with power, with the Holy Spirit and deep conviction. You know how we lived
among you for your sake. 6 You became imitators of us and of the Lord, for you welcomed the message in the
midst of severe suffering with the joy given by the Holy Spirit. 7 And so you became a model to all the believers
in Macedonia and Achaia. 8 The Lord’s message rang out from you not only in Macedonia and Achaia—your faith
in God has become known everywhere. Therefore we do not need to say anything about it, 9 for they
themselves report what kind of reception you gave us. They tell how you turned to God from idols to serve the
living and true God, 10 and to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead—Jesus, who rescues
us from the coming wrath.
Stf 566 Take my life
Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come, your will be done,
on earth as in heaven. Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours
now and for ever.
Stf 449 Lord of creation, to you be all praise
