Call to Worship
Welcome! This is a time to celebrate and worship God who loves us!
We are grateful and thankful for all God’s blessings in our lives.
We gather to remember that Christ gave his life for us.
We humbly praise God for such a gift!
Come, friends! Come and worship the God of love and hope.
Praise be to God at all times and in all places! AMEN.
Opening Prayer BOW 464
O God, in mystery and silence you are present in our lives, bringing new life out of destruction, hope out of despair, growth out of difficulty. We thank you that you do not leave us alone but labor to make us whole. Help us to perceive your unseen hand in the unfolding of our lives, and to attend to the gentle guidance of your Spirit, that we may know the joy you give your people. Amen.
*Welcoming the Light of Christ
Light your candle to symbolize the light of Christ in the world, in your life, and in your space.

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.
