PASTOR’S GREETING, INTRODUCTIONS, AND LIFE OF THE CHURCH
CALL TO WORSHIP L: Baptized to begin lives of faith, P: we would witness to all You do in our communities, in our midst, in our world. L: Baptized to serve, P: we would speak up for the voiceless, we would bring justice to those who have none. L: Baptized to speak, P: we would heal, and not hurt; we would bless, and not curse. L: Baptized to do what is right, P: we would not play favorites, but treat each as Your Beloved. L: Let us worship God!
HYMN #10 Sing Glory to the Name of God LASST UNS ERFREUEN (See music in bulletin)
PRAYER OF CONFESSION God of all the saints, God of all the sinners, hear our prayer. We would be saint like – holy, good, patient, loving. But we end up feeling more like sinners – full of failures of morality, selfish, mean. Perhaps You see us simply as human – as beloved, and flawed, and trying, and failing, and succeeding. In all of this, forgive the wrong that we have done, and bless the good we have accomplished. Keep on loving us, and helping us, and molding us more and more into the image of Christ, in Whose name we pray.
(Silence for personal confession.)
DECLARATION OF PARDON L: Friends, hear this Good News: the love of God is beyond measure, and you are included in that love. P: We are forgiven and thus freed to love and serve. Alleluia! Amen. 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.

PRESENTATION OF OUR TITHES, GIFTS, AND COMMITMENTS
OFFERTORY Serenity James Mansfield
DOXOLOGY Hymn #592 Praise God from whom all blessings flow; Praise Him all creatures here below; Praise Him above, ye heavenly host; Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen.
PRAYER OF DEDICATION
SCRIPTURE READING: Matthew 3:13-17 (NRSV, Pew Bible pp. 784-785)
13 Then Jesus came from Galilee to John at the Jordan, to be baptized by him. 14 John would have prevented him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?” 15 But Jesus answered him, “Let it be so now; for it is proper for us in this way to fulfill all righteousness.” Then he consented. 16 And when Jesus had been baptized, just as he came up from the water, suddenly the heavens were opened to him and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. 17 And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, the Beloved, with whom I am well pleased.”
SERMON Spiritual Waters Rev. Dr. Sue Marie Baskette
AFFIRMATION OF FAITH Adapted from the Belhar Confession We believe in one holy, universal Christian church, the unity of the communion of saints of the entire human family. And we believe that this unity of the people of God must be manifest and active, in that we love one another; that we give ourselves willingly and joyfully to one another, that we share one baptism together, that we eat of one bread and drink of one cup together, that we confess one name, one Lord, for one cause, with one hope, which is the height and the breadth and the depth and the love of Christ, forever and ever. Amen.
HYMN #480 Take Me to the Water TAKE ME TO THE WATER (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.

Sing Glory to the Name of God(Psalm 29)
THE TRIUNE GOD
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________TEXT: David Gambrell, 2009MUSIC: Geistliche Kirchengesäng, 1623, alt.; harm. Ralph Vaughan Williams, 1906Text © 2011 David Gambrell (admin. Presbyterian Publishing Corp.)
LASST UNS ERFREUENLM with alleluias
(this tune in a higher key, 327)
This sweeping paraphrase of Psalm 29 conveys a sense of the Jewish reverence for the sheer power of God’sname, regarded as too holy for mortal tongues to pronounce. In keeping with its appointment for TrinitySunday, the final stanza gives the psalm a Christian interpretation.

480 Take Me to the Water
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________TEXT and MUSIC: African American spiritual TAKE ME TO THE WATER
This African American spiritual sums up the commitment of a candidate for baptism: the request for the rite,an expression of motivation, and a succinct affirmation of faith. The widening melodic lines build anticipationand give weight to the final phrase of each stanza.

Come join us for fun, lessons, and activities! For more information contact Jennifer Garber at [email protected] or 928-445-4536, ext. 114.
IGNITE YOUTH: God does not call us to be “lukewarm” believers. He wants all of our hearts, all of the time. Let’s grow together and learn how to ignite our faith so that we can do our best to always be believers on fire for Christ. Open to all youth ages 6th grade through 18 years old. Sundays year-round at 10:15 AM, and Wednesdays during the school year from 3:30-5:30 PM in the Youth Room. For more information, contact Kelsey Claire at 928-445-4536, ext. 110 or [email protected]
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. The book considers aspects of Christian contemplation in 39 short chapters or "seeds" covering a diverse range of topics. All are welcome. Sundays at 8:30 AM in the Sicatuva Room.
FRIDAY WOMEN'S BIBLE STUDY FELLOWSHIP meets Fridays at 9:30 AM in the Sicatuva room. Our winter study is James Howell's book, "What Does the Lord Require?". Please contact Kate (267.981.3923) if you would like to join us. We look forward to welcoming you!

THE TRINITY TREKKERS HIKING GROUP will hold an annual meeting on Sunday, January 26th, in the Sicatuva Room, following the 10:00 AM service. This meeting will be for planning the 2020 hikes along with an opportunity for members to lead a hike and share ideas.
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.
JOIN OUR TRINITY MOPS MINISTRY! "Mothers of Preschoolers" is a ministry to support moms with kids ages birth to Kindergarten, "We believe in the simple but revolutionary
idea that remarkable things happen when moms come together, face to face." Our MOPS gatherings take place the 2nd and 4th Mondays of each month (unless there is a holiday or kids are on break) from October 14-May 11 at 8:00-11:30 AM in the Children's Center and the Grace Mitchell Fellowship Hall.
