Prelude and Lighting of the Candles

Welcome

Call to Worship

We come to together today to encounter God
and be encountered by love.
We come with open hearts.

God’s love is greater than we can imagine.
It animates creation and transforms despair into hope.
We come to be renewed.

Let us worship the one whose name is Love.
We come to worship our God.

Sermon

We Sing: God the Great Mystery Sharonne Price

  1. God the great mystery, source of our trust,
    ground of our being and shaper of dust,
    elusive presence to whom we belong,
    heartbeat and rhythm, both singer and song.

  2. Through all this borrowed life we seek your face,
    listening with wonder and mapping each trace,
    burning bush, still small voice, manna and quail,
    all gifts and signs that your love will prevail.

  3. Jesus, the Word, human child and divine,
    we are the branches and you are the vine,
    speak to us still of this imminent grace,
    “I’m in you, you’re in me, here in this place!”

  4. Great Spirit pulsing through heaven and earth,
    heart always beating with signs of new birth,
    loving us, lifting us, twisting us round,
    ’til all our songs with compassion resound.

  5. God, take our minds, hearts and souls to your own,
    live in us, breathe in us, through us be known,
    gather your world in your wondrous embrace
    ’til all is love, mercy, goodness and grace.

Prayers of the People

The Lord’s Prayer

And now with the confidence of the children of God, let us pray the prayer Jesus taught us saying…

Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be Your name,
your Kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in Heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins,
as we forgive those who sin
against us.
Save us in the time of trial
and deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power
and the glory are yours
now and forever. Amen.

We Sing: We Are Called AOV

  1. Come! Live in the light!
    Shine with the joy and the love of the Lord!
    We are called to be light for the kingdom,
    to live in the freedom of the city of God!

We are called to act with justice,
we are called to love tenderly,
we are called to serve one another;
to walk humbly with God!

  1. Come! Open your heart!
    Show your mercy to all those in fear!
    We are called to be hope for the hopeless
    so all hatred and blindness will be no more!

We are called to act with justice,
we are called to love tenderly,
we are called to serve one another;
to walk humbly with God!

  1. Sing! Sing a new song!
    Sing of that great day when all will be one!
    God will reign, and we’ll walk with each other
    as sisters and brothers united in love!

We are called to act with justice,
we are called to love tenderly,
we are called to serve one another;
to walk humbly with God!
