We Gather In Praise


Gathering (unison)

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.​​I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. How precious to me are your thoughts,​​God! How vast is the sum of them! Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand— when I awake, I am still with you.​ Thanks be to God, our wonderful creator! Amen.
(Psalm 139:13-18)

Call To Worship (unison)

Lord, we are blessed in riches and humbled in knowing that you have chosen to awaken us with the call to serve. We ask for your presence, here and now, to lead and guide us onto the path of righteousness and holy servitude with the freedom and confidence to declare your promise kept of Jesus Christ, our holy savior and redeemer, while reminding the world that you so loved the world that you gave your one and only son so that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. AMEN

Life & Work of the Community Of Faith

Hearing the Good News

Prayer of Confession (unison)

Lord, you awaken us in the darkness like Samuel but we choose to deny your call and go back to sleep. You impart your divine wisdom, knowledge and understanding upon us but we fail to apply our lessons when conflict demands love, compassion and forgiveness.  We choose fleshly rewards and conspire against the grace and mercy that you have blessed upon us to rationalize our earthly needs against your heavenly expectations. And, then we squander the abundance for which you have blessed upon us  in debt, bondage and sin to own that which only drives us farther and farther away from your love. For this we fear that we are too far gone from the path of righteousness to claim our rightful inheritance. Forgive us our wicked and selfish ways. We ask this in the name of your son, our great savior and redeemer. AMEN

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 #506 Take My Life and Let It 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.

Hampton United Church

Rooted in Faith

Growing in Love

Word Art Rooted in Faith

At Hampton United Church you will find a community that cherishes the history of this community and the heritage that has been passed on to us.  We work to honour the wisdom of our foremothers and fathers, while also responding to the challenges of our ever-changing world.  We recognize that people coming to our church are at different places on their spiritual journeys.  The ministry of our church is focused on creating a space so that wherever you may be on your journey you can find others to learn and grow with.

Weekly worship services see above.  Join us Sundays at 11 a.m for “live” online services, posted above.

“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.
