Song Leader: Prayer of Invocation

Song Leader: Every moment, we have the chance
to breathe in your goodness and grace;
every hour, we have opportunities
to share your love and hope;
every day, we have occasions
to rest in the comfort of your heart.
In you, we discover the fullness of time,
Delight of the Ages.

In every conflict of our lives,
there is your healing we can offer;
in every brokenness we experience,
there is that reconciliation we can receive;
in every difficulty which makes us stumble,
there is that dance of hope you would teach us.
In you, we discover the fullness of faith,
Promised Spirit.
Amen

Song Leader: Please be seated.

Lay Reader: Scripture

2 Samuel 6:1-5, 12b-19
(NRSV)

Lay Reader: Scripture Reading: 2 Samuel 6:1–5 (NRSV)

David again gathered all the chosen men of Israel, thirty thousand.

David and all the people with him set out and went from Baale-judah, to bring up from there the ark of God, which is called by the name of the Lord of hosts who is enthroned on the cherubim.

They carried the ark of God on a new cart, and brought it out of the house of Abinadab, which was on the hill. Uzzah and Ahio, the sons of Abinadab, were driving the new cart

with the ark of God; and Ahio went in front of the ark.

David and all the house of Israel were dancing before the Lord with all their might, with songs and lyres and harps and tambourines and castanets and cymbals.

Lay Reader: Scripture Reading: 2 Samuel 6:12b–19 (NRSV)

So David went and brought up the ark of God from the house of Obed-edom to the city of David with rejoicing;

and when those who bore the ark of the Lord had gone six paces, he sacrificed an ox and a fatling. David danced before the Lord with all his might; David was girded with a linen ephod.

So David and all the house of Israel brought up the ark of the Lord with shouting, and with the sound of the trumpet.

As the ark of the Lord came into the city of David, Michal daughter of Saul looked out of the window, and saw King David leaping and dancing before the Lord; and she despised him in her heart.

They brought in the ark of the Lord, and set it in its place, inside the tent that David had pitched for it; and David offered burnt offerings and offerings of well-being before the Lord.

When David had finished offering the burnt offerings and the offerings of well-being, he blessed the people in the name of the Lord of hosts,

and distributed food among all the people, the whole multitude of Israel, both men and women, to each a cake of bread, a portion of meat, and a cake of raisins. Then all the people went back to their homes.

Lay Reader: Scripture Response

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

All: Praise be to God.

Song: "Mourning into Dancing"

You've turned my mourning
Into dancing again
You've lifted my sorrows
And I can't stay silent
I must sing
for Your joy has come

You've turned my mourning
Into dancing again
You've lifted my sorrows
And I can't stay silent
I must sing
for Your joy has come

Where there once
was only hurt
You gave Your
healing hand

Where there once
was only pain
You brought comfort
like a friend

I feel the sweetness
of Your love
Piercing my darkness
I see the bright
and morning sun
As it ushers in
Your joyful gladness

You've turned my mourning
Into dancing again
You've lifted my sorrows
And I can't stay silent
I must sing
for Your joy has come

Woah, You've turned my mourning
Into dancing again
You've lifted my sorrows
And I can't stay silent
I must sing
for Your joy has come

Pastor: Dedication of the Offering

Pastor: Beloved Jesus, you surprise us by naming us your friends.
Your dance of faithfulness and life, opens before us a way of unexpected justice, mutuality, and joy.
Take these gifts and bless them and let them serve your people at home and throughout the world, all of us, your cherished friends.

Lay Reader: Prayer for Transformation and New Life

Lay Reader: Holy God, we confess that too often we have not been open to the rhythms of life you offer to us.
We let ourselves be put off your pace and allow ourselves to wander off into our own songs.
Too often the melodies of the world confuse us.
We have led ourselves, and others, to paths that are not according to your loving pace and direction.
Help us pay attention with all of our senses.
Make our dancing faithful;
help us take the risks that are part of letting you lead.
Pull us back into your rhythms.
Clean our hearts, purify our hands and steady our feet
that we might know and share your blessings.

(Brief pause for silence and self examination)

Lay Reader: Words of Grace

Lay Reader: The God of Hosts assures us that if we trust God's Word,
we will be led back to the songs that God would have us sing.
God is eager to show us the path home.
Accept the offer of the new song we have been given through Jesus the Christ.

Song: "Thy Word"

Thy word is a lamp
unto my feet
And a light unto my path

Thy word is a lamp
unto my feet
And a light unto my path

When I feel afraid,
think I've lost my way
Still your there
right beside me,

And nothing will I fear
as long as you are near,
Please be near me
to the end

Thy word is a lamp
unto my feet
And a light unto my path

Thy word is a lamp
unto my feet
And a light unto my path

I will not forget
Your love for me,
And yet my heart forever
is wandering.

Jesus, be my guide
and hold me
to Your side;
I will love You
to the end.

Thy word is a lamp
unto my feet
And a light unto my path

Thy word is a lamp
unto my feet
And a light unto my path

Song: "Break Now the Bread of Life" (NCH#321)

Break now the bread of life,
Savior, to me,
as you once
broke the loaves
beside the sea;

Beyond the sacred page
I seek you, Lord;
my spirit yearns for you,
O Living Word.

Bless now the truth,
dear Christ,
to me, to me,
as you once blessed
the bread by Galilee;

Then shall all bondage
cease, all shackles fall,
and I shall find my peace,
my all in all!.

Mary A Lathbury, William F Sherwin; Public Domain

Pastor: Communion Invitation

Pastor: In the United Church of Christ, we practice an open communion,
which means all are welcomed to this table… God’s table.
You don’t have to be a member of this church or any church
to partake in the sharing of the bread and juice we use in lieu of wine.

Jesus said: "I am the bread of life.
All who come to me shall not hunger,
and all who believe in me shall not thirst".
With Christians around the world
and throughout the centuries,
we gather around these symbols
of bread and wine—simple elements
that speak of nourishment and transformation

Let us pray.
Loving God, we thank you
that you are as close to us as breath,
that your love is constant and unfailing.
We thank you for all that sustains life,
and especially for Jesus Christ,
who teaches us how to live out
an ethic of justice and peace,
and for the promise of transformation
made manifest in his life, death and resurrection.

We ask you to bless this bread and this cup.
Through this meal, make us the body of Christ,
that we may join with you in promoting the well-being of all creation.
Amen

We remember on the night
when Jesus and the disciples
had their last meal together,
Jesus took the bread, gave thanks,
and gave it to the disciples,
saying "This is my body,
which is broken for you.
Take and eat it, and as often as you do,
remember me."

(hold and break bread)

In the symbol of the broken bread, we participate in the life of Christ
and dedicate ourselves
to being his disciples.

In the same way he took the cup,
and after giving thanks
he gave it to the disciples, saying:
"Drink this, all of you.
This cup is the new covenant,
poured out for you and for many
Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me."

(hold and fill cup)

In the symbol of the cup, we participate in the new life Christ brings

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.

As you come forward, please use the hand sanitizer station.
We have both regular and gluten-free elements for you to use.
If you would prefer to be served in your seat,
stay put and we will come to you.

The Table is ready, Please come.

Wait to advance to this slide until the speaking is concluded.

Communion

(The elements are shared.
Lay Reader returns to seat after all are served.)

Pastor: Communion Blessing

Pastor: Let us pray.
Holy Creator, we remember the sacrifice of Jesus, and all who follow to bring love and justice to the world.
May this bread and drink nourish us as they are the symbol of Christ’s essence in all of us.
In Jesus name we pray.
Amen.
