Hymns: Come, Christians, Join to Sing; 343; 244
Pre-Service Prayer:

Dearest Jesus—You are my Savior, my Lord, and my King!  You have redeemed my soul and sent Your Spirit to draw me into Your kingdom by creating faith within my heart.  You now dwell within that heart and rule there through Your Word.  Strengthen me this day, so that I might serve You with ever greater joy and faithfulness.  Amen.

Pre-Service Devotion: 

Psalm 45

First Reading: 

Psalm 126

This Psalm, probably written after God’s Old Testament people returned from captivity in Babylon, reflects the joy that all faithful Christians can have as they look forward to Christ’s return and their ultimate release from the captivity of sin and sorrow in this world!

Second Reading: 

Matthew 25:13-30

Jesus calls upon us to be faithful stewards of everything He has entrusted to us, as we await His return at the end of time.  When Jesus returns, those who have been faithful will enter into His joy, while those who have been unfaithful will be cast into outer darkness!
