WELCOME & ANNOUNCEMENTS

CENTERING: THE LIGHT OF CHRIST CANDLE

Call To Worship (Mark 4, 2 Corinthians 5)

Leader: God of covenant love, we praise You for planting seeds of Your love within Abraham, Sarah, and their descendants.
People: God of incarnate love, we marvel at the magnificent family tree that Your divine love has created among us.

Leader: God of welcoming love, we thank You that You have made a home for us within the branches of Your family tree.
All: God of everlasting love, we worship You, we love You, and we honor You with all that we are.

Opening Hymn: UMH #270 “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.

 
Opening Prayer

All: Holy God, we humble our hearts before You in thanksgiving and awe. For by Your mercy, we find ourselves at home in the branches of Your family tree. We discover ourselves to be a people with a love that never fails. We find ourselves within Your grand love story for all time and all creation. Whom can we thank, but You, for such great mercy? Bring Your kingdom into our midst as we worship You this day. Amen.

 

WE PROCLAIM AND RESPOND 

All: Holy God, You do not see as mortals see; for You look not at outward appearances but rather on the heart. We long to be found worthy when You look upon our hearts. We yearn to forsake our petty grievances and our unkind thoughts. We wish we could shuck our selfish motivations and our deceptions. God, please help us be the best versions of ourselves. It’s painful to admit the harm we do to one another. Create in our hearts a burning desire to please You. Grant us the courage to see our hearts as You see them and give us the wisdom to trust Your love. For You seek to transform us into Your new creations. Amen.

Silent Prayer

Words of Assurance

Leader: May those who desire to please Christ, find the desires of their hearts. In Christ, we are a new creation. Everything old has passed away. Everything has become new! Glory to God! Amen.

of skies and seas; his hand the wonders wrought.
