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
trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us and
lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom,
and the power and the glory forever. Amen.

Lift Your Light
Mary McDonald
The Journey Youth Choir; Caitlin Wells, director
Lift your light, let it shine high in the darkness;
Let it shine all over the world, Jesus loves you!
Lift your light, lift it high in the darkness;
Jesus is the light of the world. Lift your light!
Jesus is the light of all the world;
Lift the light within you, shine it all around the world.
Let the glory rise; raise it to the sky; Let your light for Jesus shine!
This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine!
Jesus is the light of the world.

Rev. Scot Bontrager (11:00)
I believe in God the Father Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth;
And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord:
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, dead, and buried,
the third day he rose from the dead;
he ascended into heaven,
and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic* church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
*universal
and the life everlasting. Amen.
*Glory Be to the Father 70

Great Day! Traditional Spiritual; arr. Rollo Dilworth
Chancel Choir; Michael Lightfoot, director
Great day! Great day, the righteous marchin’. Great day! God’s a-gonna build up Zion’s walls.
Chariot rode in the mountain top. My God spoke and the chariot did stop.
This is the day of jubilee. The Lord has set his people free.
Great day! Great day, the righteous marchin’. Great day! God’s a-gonna build up Zion’s walls.
We want no cowards in our band. As we go marchin’ through the land.
I’ll take my breast-plate, sword and shield. And march out boldly in the field.
Great day! Great day, the righteous marchin’. Great day! God’s a-gonna build up Zion’s walls.

The “Extra Dollar Concept” represents the way members of First United Methodist Church Richardson,
who give to the church monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, annually or by mail, may place “an extra dollar” in the
offering plate each Sunday in order to participate in our worship through giving and serve as an example
to our children, youth and guests of our love for our church.
Flowers in the Sanctuary are in loving memory of Ken Shamblin on his birthday, February 6,
