Holy and loving God, we come here to worship this day with anticipation and hope. We come thankful for our church and our families. Here we are to celebrate our heritage, as people of faith. We are thankful for the many traditions and experiences that have brought us to this time. As your call upon our lives becomes clearer, through your word and your church, may we know hope and meaning as we give God praise and thanksgiving. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

   Pastoral Prayer

 

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 who 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.
