We Gather In Praise


Sing: VU #524 O Canada

Gathering (responsive)

One: Out of the depths we cry to the Lord.
All: We wait for the Lord and find hope in God’s Word.
One: Hope in the Lord!
All: For with God there is steadfast love.
One: With God there is great power to redeem.
All: So we come to offer our prayers and praise to God in whom we trust. AMEN


Gospel Jam: Amen | VU #145 When I Survey the Wondrous Cross | VU #675 Will Your Anchor Hold?

Call to Worship (unison)

Great and holy God, source of our life and all life, your glory is incomprehensible and your majesty infinite. You are the wellspring of new life and the fountain of true freedom. We marvel at your love, beyond all measure; we are challenged by your kindness which reaches further than we can imagine. We worship you in gratitude, offering you our praise with the voices of all creation, and our trust because you have come too close to us in Christ Jesus. Receive our love and loyalty, now and always, offered through the Spirit who prays within us. AMEN

Life & Work of the Community Of Faith
Prayer of Confession (unison)

Great and merciful God, our judge and our hope, We confess we have sinned against you and one another, in the ways we think, the things we say and the things we do. We have been quick to judge others, but less critical of our own actions. We focus on what we lack rather than recognize how blessed we are. We ignore the needs of others and fail to see how we could make a difference. In your tender mercy, O God, forgive what we have been, amend what we are, and direct who we shall become, through the grace of Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

Mark 5: 21–43

Reader: The word of the Lord.
People: Thanks be to God.

Anthem: “Fly Away Medley

Message:“What Grieves You?”

We Respond With Prayer & Thanksgiving

Hymn: VU #325 Christ Is Made The Sure Foundation

Prayer For The Gifts & Givers
Prayers Of The People
The Lord’s Prayer (unison)

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 that trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil; for thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.

Closing Hymn: VU #352 Dance Then, Wherever You May Be


Go now in peace. Never be afraid.
God will go with you each hour of every day.
Go now in faith, steadfast, strong and true.
Know He will guide you in all you do.
Go now in love, and show you believe.
Reach out to others so all the world can see.
God will be there watching from above.
Go now in peace, in faith, and in love.

“Five Great Reasons to Attend This Sunday”
  1. You’ve been looking for a sign from God. Here is it!
  2. Worship and Prayer reduce stress and brings us closer together with our loved ones. Who doesn’t want that?
  3. You’ve been saying you want to make new friends and here are a bunch of people who want the same thing.
  4. You realize life is more than work, and sense a spiritual side of yourself that needs some attention.
  5. Who doesn’t like free coffee and donuts? We’re all seeking grace, forgiveness, and greater meaning. Sometimes God gets things started with a Timbit.
