Welcome

 

Reading: Psalm 104

 

Call to Worship: Psalm 124 and James 5

 

If it had not been God who was on our side,

the troubles of our world would have swallowed us alive.

 

If it had not been God who was on our side,

the sorrows of our times would have swept us away.

 

Are any among us suffering?

Come and pray.

 

Are any among us cheerful?

Come sing songs of praise.

 

Are any among us sick?

Come and ask for healing.

 

Our help is in our God,

the One who made heaven and earth.

 

Call upon God, creator and rescuer.

God is on our side.

 

Gathering Prayer

Song

 

Bless the Lord, O my soul

Oh my soul

Worship His Holy name

Sing like never before

Oh my soul

I'll worship Your Holy name

 

The sun comes up it's a new day dawning

It's time to sing Your song again

Whatever may pass and whatever lies before me

Let me be singing when the evening comes

 

You're rich in love and You're slow to anger

Your name is great and Your heart is kind

For all Your goodness I will keep on singing

Ten thousand reasons for my heart to find

 

And on that day when my strength is failing

The end draws near and my time has come

Still my soul will sing Your praise unending

Ten thousand years and then forevermore

Prayers for the world  

 

Response: Psalm 9:9-10

 

Our God is a stronghold in times of trouble.

And those who know your name put their trust in you,

for you, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you.

 

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,

Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our sins

as we forgive those who sin against us.

Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.

For the Kingdom, the power and the glory are yours.

Now and forever.  Amen.

 

Communion

 

Closing Prayer

 

We have journeyed with you, O God,

To this time of worship today.

And now you call us to leave the sacred spaces we have created

to go into the world to serve all people.

 

We leave behind our old securities;

we leave behind our reliance on worldly goods.

And we will go with you, O God,

into the world to live with all people.

 

We leave behind all which holds us back;

we leave behind all which keeps us from following you.

We leave behind the fears which bind us;      

we leave behind the hurts which damage us.

And we will go with you, O God,

into the peace you offer to all people.

 

The Grace

May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ

And the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit

Be with us all evermore.  Amen
