All:        to a time of wonder and prayer, to a time where music calls us home.

One:      We come to hear God’s Word,

All:        so that we may be inspired and challenged,
              so that we may find hope and forgiveness.

One:      God welcomes us with arms wide open,

All:        so we welcome everyone at this place with open minds,

One:      Let us worship God together.

Call to Confession

Silent Confession

Prayer of Confession

Loving God, help us understand that the generosity and hospitality that the world needs often demands sacrifice on our part. Forgive the instances in which we have turned away from our neighbors in need. Be with those who have never known a table blessed by laughter and welcome. Give us courage to stand for those who have no place to go, for those with no food to eat, for those with no water to drink. Remind us to be a blessing for this world, now and always. Amen.

Assurance of Pardon

* Response of Praise                             Alleluia! Alleluia!                           ALLELUIA NO. 1

Alleluia, Alleluia! Give thanks to the risen Lord:
Alleluia, Alleluia! Give praise to His name. (repeat)

Prayer of Illumination                                                                        Elder Shirley Calhoun

First Lesson                                        Psalm 84:1-4, 10-12                                    (p. 531)

Anthem                                                     The Road Home                          Stephen Paulus
                                                                                                                          (1949-2014)

Tell me where is the road I can call my own,
That I left, that I lost, So long ago?
All these years I have wandered, oh when will I know
There’s a way, there’s a road that will lead me home?

After wind, after rain, when the dark is done,
As I wake from a dream in the gold of day,
Through the air there’s a calling from far away,
There’s a voice I can hear that will lead me home.

Rise up, follow me, come away is the call,
With love in your heart as the only song;
There is no such beauty as where you belong,
Rise up, follow me, I will lead you home.

Second Lesson Acts 16:9-15 (p. 1009)

Response

Leader:          This is the word of the Lord.

People:         Thanks be to God.

Prayers of the People and 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.

Offertory                                 Immortal Love, Forever Full                           Gordon Young
                                                                                                                        (1919-1998)

Immortal Love, forever full, Forever flowing free,
Forever shared, forever whole, A never ebbing sea.

We may not climb the heav’nly steeps
To bring the Lord Christ down;
In vain we search the lowest deeps,
For Him no depths can drown.

The healing of His seamless dress Is by our beds of pain;
We touch Him in life’s throng and press, And we are whole again.

O Lord and Master of us all,
Whate’er our name or sign,
We own Thy sway, we hear Thy call,
We test our lives by Thine!

                       Text: John G. Whittier (1807-1892)

* Doxology                                                                                                     (Hymn #592)

Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
Praise Him, all creatures here below;
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen.

* Prayer of Thanksgiving

WE GO FORTH TO SERVE

The Lord bless you and keep you,
the Lord lift his countenance upon you;
and give you peace,
the Lord make his face to shine upon you,
and be gracious unto you.
Amen.

                       —Numbers 6:24-26
