Song: "God Of Grace And God Of Glory" (NCH#436)

Song Leader: Please remain standing as you are able and sing.

God of grace and God of glory,
on your people
pour your power;
crown your ancient
church's story,
bring its bud to glorious flower.

Grant us wisdom,
grant us courage,
for the facing of this hour,
for the facing of this hour.

From the evils
that surround us
and assail the Savior's ways,
From the fears that
long have bound us
free our hearts to
faith and praise.

Grant us wisdom,
grant us courage,
for the living of these days,
for the living of these days.

Save us from weak resignation
to the evils we deplore
let the gift of your salvation
be our glory evermore.

Grant us wisdom,
grant us courage,
Serving you whom we adore,
Serving you whom we adore.

Song: "We Will Serve The Lord"

Wealth can be an idol
Built of gleaming gold
Bringing dreams of paradise
Futures bought and sold

Some will choose to gather it
All that they can hoard
But as for me and my house
We will serve the Lord

Pleasure is a siren
Promising the flesh
Brief relief from emptiness
A hiding place from death

Some will choose to chase it
Until it leaves them bored
But as for me and my house
We will serve the Lord

As for me and my house
We will serve the Lord
We will serve the Lord
We will serve the Lord

As for me and my house
We will serve the Lord
We will serve the Lord
We will serve the Lord

Power is a hunger
Burning in the breast
To walk among the mighty
And trample on the rest

Some will choose to gain it
By lie or guile or sword
But as for me and my house
We will serve the Lord

As for me and my house
We will serve the Lord
We will serve the Lord
We will serve the Lord

As for me and my house
We will serve the Lord
We will serve the Lord
We will serve the Lord

Father of all mercy
Giver of all life
Here we speak our covenant
Above the noisy strife

Hear us shout in glory
Above the pagan horde
As for me and my house
We will serve the Lord

As for me and my house
We will serve the Lord
We will serve the Lord
We will serve the Lord

As for me and my house
We will serve the Lord
We will serve the Lord
We will serve the Lord

Lay Reader: Scripture

Micah 6:1-8
1 Corinthians 1:18-31
(NRSV)

Lay Reader: Scripture Reading: Micah 6:1–8 (NRSV)

Hear what the Lord says: Rise, plead your case before the mountains, and let the hills hear your voice.

Hear, you mountains, the controversy of the Lord, and you enduring foundations of the earth; for the Lord has a controversy with his people, and he will contend with Israel.

“O my people, what have I done to you? In what have I wearied you? Answer me!

For I brought you up from the land of Egypt, and redeemed you from the house of slavery; and I sent before you Moses, Aaron, and Miriam.

O my people, remember now what King Balak of Moab devised, what Balaam son of Beor answered him, and what happened from Shittim to Gilgal, that you may know the saving acts of the Lord.”

“With what shall I come before the Lord, and bow myself before God on high? Shall I come before him with burnt offerings, with calves a year old?

Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams, with ten thousands of rivers of oil? Shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?”

He has told you, O mortal, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

Lay Reader: Scripture Reading: 1 Corinthians 1:18–31 (NRSV)

For the message about the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.

For it is written, “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and the discernment of the discerning I will thwart.”

Where is the one who is wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?

For since, in the wisdom of God, the world did not know God through wisdom, God decided, through the foolishness of our proclamation, to save those who believe.

For Jews demand signs and Greeks desire wisdom, but we proclaim Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles,

but to those who are the called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.

For God’s foolishness is wiser than human wisdom, and God’s weakness is stronger than human strength.

Consider your own call, brothers and sisters: not many of you were wise by human standards, not many were powerful, not many were of noble birth.

But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong;

God chose what is low and despised in the world, things that are not, to reduce to nothing things that are, so that no one might boast in the presence of God.

He is the source of your life in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification and redemption,

in order that, as it is written, “Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.”

Lay Reader: Scripture Response

One: This is God’s self-revealing through the stories of our people.

All: Praise be to God.

Pastor: Offering

Pastor: A generous life counters the societal norms that depend on scarcity.
Our Loving God creates in abundance so that all may live a full and flourishing life.
When we give from our abundance, we proclaim our trust in God’s provision and our love of neighbor.

While we do not pass the plates for our Offering,
we do have offering plates at the back rows of chairs as you enter the sanctuary.
Please feel free to place your offerings there.
We also have a secure way to give online by using our webpage at campbellucc.com/donate

Let us pause and reflect as you give your offerings.

(Ruth plays a short interlude)

Now let us dedicate our offerings...

Pastor: Dedication of the Offering

Pastor: Just God, we share our humble offering in hope and trust that, through these gifts, your kin-dom comes and your will is done.

Amen.

Lay Reader: Prayer for Transformation and New Life

Lay Reader: Holy Wisdom, you have expressed your hope for us and vision for life abundantly.
Many times we settle for a temporary truce over real peace.
We avoid confrontation and accountability that builds up and creates a more just world.
We refuse to relentlessly pursue your will when discomforted by the cost of discipleship.
Forgive us, O God, we pray.

(Brief pause for silence and self examination)

Lay Reader: Words of Grace

Lay Reader: Receive the good news that each day presents a new opportunity to follow the way of Jesus–to do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with God.
The grace of the Holy One meets us.
God embraces and supports us in the turning and will be faithful to strengthen us on the path of righteousness.

Song: "All That We Have"

All that we have
and all that we offer
Comes from a heart
both frightened and free

Take what we bring now
and give what we need
All done in His name

Some folks rely on
their power
Others put trust
in their gold

Some people have
only their Savior
Whose faithfulness
never grows old

All that we have
and all that we offer
Comes from a heart
both frightened and free

Take what we bring now
and give what we need
All done in His name

Sometimes the road
may be lonesome
Often we may
lose our way

Take courage
and always remember
Love isn't
just for a day

All that we have
and all that we offer
Comes from a heart
both frightened and free

Take what we bring now
and give what we need
All done in His name

Song: "For Everyone Born"

For everyone born
a place at the table
For everyone born
clean water and bread

A shelter, a space,
a safe place for growing
For everyone born
a star overhead

And God will delight when
we are creators of justice
And joy compassion
and peace

Yes God will delight when
we are creators of justice
Justice and joy

For woman and man,
a place at the table,
revising the roles,
deciding the share,

with wisdom and grace
dividing the power,
for woman and man,
a system that's fair.

And God will delight when
we are creators of justice
And joy compassion
and peace

Yes God will delight when
we are creators of justice
Justice and joy

Communion Invitation

Pastor: Holy God of Love,
though we come to your Table as many,
may your Holy Spirit make us one body and one spirit.

Lay Reader: As you feed us with the Bread of Life,
may we feed those who know hunger;
as your justice illumines our hearts' darkness,
may we be a beacon to the oppressed and lost;
as you speak to us the truth in love,
may we be a voice for the powerless and forgotten;
as you restore us to wholeness,
may we bind up our shattered world.

Pastor: God of presence and connection, meet us at this Table with open arms and holy conversation so that we might catch a glimpse of communion with you in this meal and be changed.

Communion

Pastor: As Jesus encouraged us, we remember his life and death so that we too can truly live. Jesus, our guide and companion, at your last supper ...

Pastor: Liturgy - bread

Pastor: you took a loaf of bread and, after blessing it, you broke it and shared it with your followers, saying:

ALL: "Take. Eat. This is my body given for you. Each time you do this, remember me."

Pastor: Liturgy - drink

Pastor: Then you took a cup and, after giving thanks, passed it to your friends, saying:

ALL: “Drink. This cup that is poured out for you is the promise of God, the new covenant. Whenever you drink it, remember me.”

Pastor: Communion

Pastor: (Raise bread.)

Blessed are You, Lord our God, Ruler of the universe, who brings forth bread from the earth, and gave us the bread of heaven in Jesus.

(Break bread.)

(Raise cup.)

Blessed are You, Eternal our God, Ruler of the Universe, who created the fruit of the vine, and gave us the cup of blessing in Jesus our Christ.

Here is Christ coming to us in bread and in vine.
These are the gifts of God for the people of God.

Lay Reader: Communion

Lay Reader: We are called into community, so that we may become a gift to one another.
Friends, there are a lot of tables in this world, but there is none like this one.
We have a seat saved for you.
Come.

As you come forward, please use the hand sanitizer station.
We have both regular and gluten-free elements for you to use.

Pastor: Communion Blessing

Pastor: As you eat the bread of life, may it strengthen your body for service, and your spirit for joy.
May the cup of blessing open your heart and allow it to be filled with the connection and communion of all who have brought you to this day, this place, this second, this life.
Take in the bounty of grace that builds you up: commit to the building of others in Christ’s name, and so be in true communion with God, with Christ, and with one another.
Amen.
