Choir “ Lift Up Your Heads, Ye Mighty Gates”
Call to Worship: “from Psalm 28”
To You I call, O Lord my Rock; do not turn a deaf ear to me.
If You remain silent, I will feel as if I have fallen in the pit.
Hear my cry for mercy as I call to You for help,
as I lift up my hands toward Your Holy Holies.
Praise be to the Lord, for He has heard my cry for mercy.
The Lord is my strength and my shield.
My heart trusts in Him and I am helped.
I leap with joy as I give thanks to Him in song.
The Lord is the strength of His people,
A fortress of salvation for His anointed one.
Save Your people, Lord, and bless Your inheritance.
be their Shepherd and carry them forever.

Prayer of Confession (unison)
O Lord, we’ve heard the old, old story and we confess our
Sin of indifference. Forgive our faithlessness, O Faithful God!
We have apathy—see beyond our apathy.
We have thoughtlessness—see beyond our thoughtlessness.
We are self-centered—see beyond our self-centeredness.
We make wrong choices—turn our heads toward right choices.
My Lord God, I am sorry, Brush against me when I least expect it. Inspire us to tell the old, old story of Your love to all we meet.

Jesus Comes to Jerusalem as King
1 As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage on the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two disciples, 2 saying to them, “Go to the village ahead of you, and at once you will find a donkey tied there, with her colt by her. Untie them and bring them to me. 3 If anyone says anything to you, say that the Lord needs them, and he will send them right away.”
4 This took place to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet:
5 “Say to Daughter Zion,
‘See, your king comes to you,
gentle and riding on a donkey,
and on a colt, the foal of a donkey.’"
6 The disciples went and did as Jesus had instructed them. 7 They brought the donkey and the colt and placed their cloaks on them for Jesus to sit on. 8 A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. 9 The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted,
“Hosanna to the Son of David!”
“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”
“Hosanna in the highest heaven!”
10 When Jesus entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred and asked, “Who is this?”
11 The crowds answered, “This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee.”
We are a small, rural Presbyterian church in southwestern Pennsylvania.
