Welcome & Announcements

Prelude        “Shine, Jesus, Shine”     Elizabeth Eppes

Call to Worship:
God, who flung the stars into the night sky, rejoices over all creation, especially us!
Come to us, Laughing God, and gladden our hearts with your goodness and grace.
Christ, the Word of joy and life, fills all creation with hope, especially us!
Come to us, Brother and Savior, and reclaim our hearts as your own.
The Spirit, who breathes life into emptiness, gives all creation the gift of peace, especially us!
Come to us, Spirit of Gentleness, and refresh us with the dew of delight.

**Hymn     #1 “Holy, Holy, Holy! Lord God Almighty!”

**Affirmation of Faith
In life and death we belong to God.  We trust in Jesus Christ, fully human, fully God.  We trust in God, whom Jesus called Abba, Father.  In sovereign love God created the world good and makes everyone equally in God’s image, of every race and people, to live in one community.  We trust in God the Holy Spirit, everywhere the giver and renewer of life.  With believers in every time and place, we rejoice that nothing in life or in death can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Message

Prayers of the People with the 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 debts, as we forgive our debtors; and lead us, not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.  For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever.  Amen.

**Hymn                #177 “You Are Mine”

**Benediction

**Choral Blessing     (face center aisle to bless one another)
May the road rise to meet you, may the wind blow at your back, may the sun shine warmly on your face, may the rain fall softly on your field, and, until we meet again, until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of God’s hand.
