We Gather In Praise
Call To Worship(unison)
You are known to us in many ways, O God, as Father, Son and Holy Spirit – the Trinity, as Mother and Maker and Creator, as Christ and Redeemer and Healer, as Energy and Light and Comforter. We name you in many ways, O God, knowing that you are Wholly Mystery as well as Holy Love. Come to us in this time of worship, O God, that we may know you in both familiar and surprising ways.
Prayer of Confession(unison)
Ever present God. Forgive us when we stand in disbelief and comfort us when our fears outweigh your peace. God, forgive us when we become too busy to pray. Help us when we fail to see our neighbours in need. Abiding God, forgive us when we are overwhelmed with bad news, and shut down completely. In these times, remind us that we are called to be your love-lived, your faithful witnesses, and your humble servants. Help us to wake up to the work of love and to your renewing strength each day, we pray. Amen
O God, hear our prayers of repentance and forgiveness, and awaken us from doubt, disbelief, and distress by transforming us into your resurrection joy! God, we desire for your loving spirit to be among us, to comfort us in our fears, and to renew our faith. Amen.
Reader: The word of the Lord.
People: Thanks be to God.
Message:“Thoughts along the way…..”
We Respond With Prayer & Thanksgiving
Prayer For The Gifts & Givers
O God, we bring to you our offerings, symbols of the fruits of our labours. Bless we who bring them and these our gifts that they may help bring fellowship and the furthering of your realm on earth. We ask in the name of Jesus—the bread of life. Amen.
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 #589 Lord, Speak To Me
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”
- You’ve been looking for a sign from God. Here is it!
- Worship and Prayer reduce stress and brings us closer together with our loved ones. Who doesn’t want that?
- You’ve been saying you want to make new friends and here are a bunch of people who want the same thing.
- You realize life is more than work, and sense a spiritual side of yourself that needs some attention.
- 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.
