The Gathering Hymn: How Good, Lord, to Be Here # 103
We listen to what God is saying
A time in which we
hear Sacred Words,
have a time with children,
hear the word in song,
and receive a message for reflection.
The Ministry of Music is: God is Changing the World
Justin Beckett & Mark Hayes
The Reflection is: The Beat Goes On
In the Christian story, we hear that death is needed so new life
can emerge... Seeds must “die” in order to germinate. Yet we
struggle with knowing when something has come to the end
of its time and letting it go.
Consider which ending/beginning stories have enriched your
life, individually and as a faith community. In what ways have
you found a “new path on which to travel” through letting go?
We respond with renewed commitment
A time in which we
share our gifts, tithes and offering,
And share concerns and a community prayer.
The hymn is: Walk with Me # 649
The offertory is: Chanson
Douglas Wagner
The Lord will command his loving kindness in the daytime,
and in the night his song shall be with me. Psalm 42:8
-3The offering doxology is: For the Gift of Creation # 538
For the gift of creation, the gift of your love,
and the gift of the Spirit by which we live,
we thank you and give you the fruit of our hands.
May your grace be proclaimed by the gifts that we give.
Our shared prayer is the Prayer of Jesus
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 and ever.
We prepare for service
In which we
sing a parting song and
are commissioned to ministry and mission
and depart with a blessing.
Parting hymn is: Spirit, Open My Heart More Voices # 79 (insert)

-4The Sung Blessing is: Go Now In Peace
Go now in peace. Never be afraid.
God will go with you each hour of every day.
Go now in faith, steadfast strong and true.
Know God will guide you in all you do.
Go now in love, and show you believe.
Reach out to others so all the world can see.
God will be there watching like a dove.
Go now in peace, in faith, and in love.
Amen, amen, amen.
