GATHERING HYMN                               “You Are Mine”                   video

*CALL TO WORSHIP
Leader:
People of God, look about and see the faces of those we know and love, a community of kindred hearts.
People of God, look about and see the face of those we hardly know --
strangers, sojourners, forgotten friends, the ones who need an outstretched hand.
People of God, look about and see all the images of God in me, in you, in each
of us and in all the world God so loves. God's spirit shines for all to see.
 
People: May our eyes, our hearts and our souls be open this day.

*HYMN OF PRAISE #64
“Holy, Holy, Holy! Lord God Almighty”

*INVOCATION
Creating and redeeming God, calling and sending Spirit, we welcome you and
open our hearts to receive you into our worship. We welcome the love that is
the essence of your Divine nature. We receive the Word and sacraments that
bring forth your grace. Surround us now in the mystery of your presence, we
pray, as we seek to worship you in spirit and in truth. Amen.

PASTORAL PRAYER AND LORD’S 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, forever. Amen.
