PASTOR’S GREETING, INTRODUCTIONS, AND LIFE OF THE CHURCH
CALL TO WORSHIP Psalm 95 L: O come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation! P: We shall come into Your presence with thanksgiving and make a joyful noise unto You with our songs of praise! L: O come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the Lord our Maker!

HYMN #451 Open My Eyes, That I May See OPEN MY EYES (See music in bulletin)
PRAYER OF CONFESSION Do not harden our hearts, O God, to the sound of Your voice. We confess we don’t listen to the word that You send. You give us Jesus, the Word of Life in our midst. We confess our delay in obeying the direction He brings. You promise the Holy Spirit, a source of counsel and power. We confess ignoring such guidance, since we do not respond. Forgive us our sin, and help us through Christ to enter the rest You have promised.
(Silence is kept for personal confession)
DECLARATION OF PARDON Romans 5:1-11 L: God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us. Since we are justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through Whom we have obtained access to this grace in which we stand. Friends, believe the good news: P: In Jesus Christ, we are forgiven. L: Let us stand and give glory to God!
GLORIA PATRI Hymn #579 Glory be to the Father And to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost; As it was in the beginning, Is now, and ever shall be, World without end – Amen, Amen.

PRAYER OF DEDICATION
SCRIPTURE READING: John 3:1-17 (NRSV, Pew Bible pp. 863-864)
3 Now there was a Pharisee named Nicodemus, a leader of the Jews. 2 He came to Jesus by
night and said to him, “Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher who has come from God; for
no one can do these signs that you do apart from the presence of God.” 3 Jesus answered
him, “Very truly, I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God without being born from
above.” 4 Nicodemus said to him, “How can anyone be born after having grown old? Can
one enter a second time into the mother’s womb and be born?” 5 Jesus answered, “Very
truly, I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God without being born of water and
Spirit. 6 What is born of the flesh is flesh, and what is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 Do not be
astonished that I said to you, ‘You must be born from above.’ 8 The wind blows where it
chooses, and you hear the sound of it, but you do not know where it comes from or where
it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.” 9 Nicodemus said to him, “How can
these things be?” 10 Jesus answered him, “Are you a teacher of Israel, and yet you do not
understand these things?
11 “Very truly, I tell you, we speak of what we know and testify to what we have seen; yet
you do not receive our testimony. 12 If I have told you about earthly things and you do not
believe, how can you believe if I tell you about heavenly things? 13 No one has ascended
into heaven except the one who descended from heaven, the Son of Man. 14 And just as
Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, 15 that
whoever believes in him may have eternal life.
16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in
him may not perish but may have eternal life.
17 “Indeed, God did not send the Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order
that the world might be saved through him.
SERMON Hush, Hush Rev. Dr. Sue Marie Baskette
CONFESSION OF FAITH A Brief Statement of Faith Presbyterian Church (USA)
In life and in death we belong to God. Through the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit, we trust in the one triune God, the Holy One of Israel, Whom alone we worship and serve. We trust in Jesus Christ, fully human, fully God. Jesus proclaimed the reign of God: preaching good news to the poor and release to the captives, teaching by word and deed and blessing the children, healing the sick and binding up the brokenhearted, eating with outcasts, forgiving sinners, and calling all to repent and believe the gospel. Unjustly condemned for blasphemy and sedition, Jesus was crucified, suffering the depths of human pain and giving His life for the sins of the world. God raised this Jesus from the dead, vindicating his sinless life, breaking the power of sin and evil, delivering us from death to life eternal.
HYMN #443 There is a Redeemer GREEN (See music in bulletin)
PRAYER OF THANKSGIVING AND INTERCESSION, CONCLUDING WITH THE LORD’S PRAYER
The 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 debts, as we forgive our debtors;
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For Thine is the kingdom and the power
And the glory, forever. Amen.
POSTLUDE Be Thou Exalted Chester Nordman

Open My Eyes, That I May SeeTHE WORD
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________TEXT and MUSIC: Clara H. Scott, 1895 OPEN MY EYES
The first woman to publish a collection of her own anthems, this author/composer has created in this hymna sung prayer for illumination. It not only asks God to help us understand Scripture but also prays for thestrength and courage to make God’s love known to others.

Although the refrain of this piece names all three Persons of the Trinity, the stanzas emphasize references toJesus Christ under various titles. There is also a shift in tone between the stanzas and the refrain: the formerspeak about God and the latter speaks to God.
Few petitions of the Lord’s Prayer are as difficult to pray as this one, and we would not dare to pray it if wehad to depend on ourselves rather than the example of forgiveness we are given in Jesus Christ. The shapenote tune sets these words with appropriate spareness.

INTERSECTIONS CLASS is currently studying and discussing the book, New Seeds of Contemplation by Thomas Merton. Merton uses the Gospel parable of the sower as a metaphor for the “sowing of seeds” meant to lead to an abundant harvest in the spiritual life of his readers.

COMMUNITY CUPBOARD NEWS: Thank you for your food and money donations. The money goes a long way because our buyer purchases items at a big discount for us.

Also, please continue to bring paper or plastic grocery bags and put them in the Community Cupboard box in the hallway outside the church office. THANK YOU!
CARE TEAM MISSION STATEMENT: To foster caring relationships within our church family as we hold each other up in prayer, encourage one another with phone calls, greeting cards, prayer shawls, home and hospital visits as well as acts of kindness for those in need such as bringing over a meal, help with grocery shopping or giving a ride to church or a medical appointment.
YOUR MISSION "If you choose to accept it": is to let us know if you need our assistance!! Contact the church office: 445-4536 ext. 113, Charlene: 771-8845 or 273-6093, or Charlie: 925-0057.
PER CAPITA - As Presbyterians, we agree to participate in the life of the wider church by serving Presbytery, Synod, and General Assembly. One of the ways we do this is through our Per Capita apportionment which is how we mutually share the cost of coming together to discern the Spirit's leading for the future. Each member is responsible for their share of this cost. The Presbytery of Grand Canyon approved the 2020 Per Capita apportionment at $37.35 per member. Per Capita gifts should be made payable to Trinity, and will be forwarded on to the Presbytery.
PASTOR SUE MARIE'S EMAIL: When corresponding with Pastor Sue Marie by email please double check what email address you are using. Please use the [email protected] address. There is another email address being used that is no longer active. Using an address other than the [email protected] will result in lost correspondence - and we do not want that happening. Thank you so much for your attention to this issue.
