WE GATHER AS GOD’S BELOVED

GREETINGS AND WELCOME

CENTERING MOMENT AND COLLECT 

INTROIT: “A light is gleaming, spreading its arms throughout the night, living in the light. Come share it’s gladness. God’s radiant light is burning bright, living in the light.”  (VU# 82 Refrain. Used with permission) 

OPENING PRAYER: (Responsive) We come before you with open hearts and minds, ready to hear your voice and to follow where you lead us.

We trust you, God.

Fill us with courage and faith. You are our rock and our salvation.

We trust you, God.

You are our refuge and strength. We put our trust in you always. We trust you, God.

You have spoken to us and invited us to travel with you.

We trust you, God.

Power and love belong to you, God; you are our hope and our salvation. 

We trust you, God.

Come, let us worship.

We trust you, God. Amen. 

HYMN: “Jesus Calls Us”                                                     VU# 562 

PRAYER OF RENEWAL (Unison) Oh God, we know that your call to us to serve often comes in unexpected ways, and we confess that we have not always been alert and open to the ways and people through whom your call comes. We confess that your call to serve sometimes comes at inconvenient times and we choose to ignore it. We admit that sometimes your call is to venture into new territory, and in fear, we turn away. In this week of Prayer for Christian Unity, we ask, help us to leave our comfortable places and join with other Christians, to work with them so that your will may be done in our community.  (Time of Contemplative Silence)
