We Gather In Praise



Gospel Jam: Amen | VU #436 Abide With Me | VU #315 Holy, Holy, Holy! Lord God Almighty!

Call to Worship (unison)

Jesus calls us to servant ministry. We must be willing to help others, not counting the cost or rewards. Pretence, disharmony, greed have no place in discipleship. Serving God means receiving each person as though they were a beloved child. Lord, help us to truly become your disciples. Create in us hearts for ministries of compassion and kindness.  AMEN.

Prayer of Confession (unison)

God of patience and mercy, we come to you, offering “lip service” to serving you, but when things get difficult; when we are called to do something which is hard for us, we shy away from the duty and the opportunity. We turn our back on service out of fear of failure. Forgive us, gracious Lord. Heal our fears and our weaknesses. Strengthen us and give us courage to truly be your disciples, not counting the rewards, but rejoicing in the work. In Jesus’ Name, we pray. AMEN.

Words of Assurance (unison)

God says –
I have called you by name; you are mine
Even when we don’t claim God – God claims us
We belong to God – and are loved into completeness
Let us open our hearts to the love and grace of God….
Thanks be to God…

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 #120 O Jesus, I Have Promised


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.
