On Sunday December 27, our Worship Service will be focused on a Covenant Renewal Ceremony from the Methodist Tradition of John Wesley. This liturgy is a serious call to holiness, repentance and faith, and has often been used as at the New Year renewal for personal and corporate renewal. it is presented here so that we may consider the commitments of these prayers and prepare for the Sunday Service.
Leader: "Come, let us join ourselves to the Lord in an everlasting covenant which will never be forgotten" (Jer. 50:5, RSV).
All: Almighty God, unto whom all hearts are open, all desires known, and from whom no secrets are hidden; cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of Your Holy Spirit, that we may perfectly love You, and worthily magnify Your holy name through Christ our Lord. Amen.
