*Call to Worship
Leader: Creator God… Call us all.
People: You declared, O Lord, that our sons and daughters would prophecy;
the young will see visions, while the elders dream dreams.
Leader: Resurrected Christ… Guide us all.
People: You have told us, Great God, what is required:
to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with You.
Leader: Holy, Holy, Holy Spirit…Move us to action.
People: So that justice rolls like water
and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.
Leader: Take away all guilt; accept that which is good.
All: We offer our worship -- the fruit of our lips to you, our God. Amen.

Prayer Hymn “Sweet Hour of Prayer #496
Silent Prayer / Pastoral Prayer / 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 and
the power and the glory forever. Amen.

Sharing our blessings
Offering Our Gifts and Tithes
God who moves before us, behind us, and beside us; through your risen son you
have commanded us to “Go!” but we have made ourselves comfortable in our
churches and in our homes. You have commanded us to reach out to the world;
but often we have limited that outreach to those who look like us, speak like us,
live like us. As we worship this morning, and we pray the prayers and sing the
songs, and as we offer ourselves and our gifts to you, remind us again that we
are called to go into the world. Help us to be more of a movement of hope and
love and less an institution of rules and protection of the way things have always
been. We pray in the name of the one who sends us, Jesus the Christ. Amen.
