Song: "God It Was Who Said to Abram"

Song Leader: Please rise as you are able and sing our opening song.

God it was who said to Abram,
“Pack your bags and travel on.”
God it was who said to Sarah,
“Smile, and soon you’ll bear a son.”

Trav’ling folk and aged mothers,
wand’ring when
they thought they’d done—
this is how we find God’s people,
leaving all because of One.

God it was who said to Moses,
“Save my people, part the sea!”
God it was who said to Miriam,
“Sing and dance to show you’re free.”

Shepherd-saints and tambourinists,
doing what God knew they could—
this is how we find God’s people,
liberating what they should.

In this crowd which spans the ages
with these saints whom we revere,
God wants us to share their purpose
starting now and starting here.

So we celebrate our calling,
so we raise both heart and voice
as we pray that through our living
more may find they are God’s choice.

Song: "The Summons"

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

Will you come
and follow Me
If I but
call your name?

Will you go where
you don't know
And never
be the same?

Will you let
My love be shown?
Will you let
My name be known?

Will you let
My life be grown
In you and
you in Me?

Will you leave
yourself behind
If I but
call your name?

Will you care for
cruel and kind
And never
be the same?

Will you risk
the hostile stare
Should your life
attract or scare?

Will you let
Me answer prayer
In you and
you in Me?

Will you let
the blinded see
If I but
call your name?

Will you set
the prisoners free
And never
be the same?

Will you kiss
the leper clean
And do such
as this unseen?

And admit
to what I mean
In you
and you in Me?

Will you love
the "you" you hide
If I but
call your name?

Will you quell
the fear inside
And never
be the same?

Will you use
the faith you've found
To reshape
the world around,

Through My sight
and touch and sound
In you
and you in Me?

Lord Your summons
echoes true
When You
but call my name.

Let me turn
and follow You
And never
be the same.

In Your company
I'll go
Where Your love
and footsteps show.

Thus I'll move
and live and grow
In You
and You in me.

because of the work they do.
Be at peace among yourselves.

Addressing the Pastor:

Pastor Shirley, We urge you, our sibling,
warn the idle, encourage the timid, help the weak, be patient with all.
See that no one pays back wrong for wrong,
but at all times make it your aim
to do good to one another and to all people.
Be joyful always, pray at all times, be thankful in all circumstances.
This is what God wants of you, in your life in Christ Jesus.
Amen.

Song: "My Life Flows On (How Can I Keep from Singing)" (TFWS#2212)

My life flows on
in endless song,
above earth’s lamentation.

I hear the clear,
though far-off hymn
that hails a new creation.

No storm can shake
my inmost calm
while to that Rock
I’m clinging.

Since love is Lord
of heaven and earth,
how can I keep from singing?

Through all the tumult
and the strife,
I hear that music ringing.

It finds an echo
in my soul.
How can I keep from singing?

No storm can shake
my inmost calm
while to that Rock
I’m clinging.

Since love is Lord
of heaven and earth,
how can I keep from singing?

What though my joys
and comforts die?
I know my Savior liveth.

What though the darkness
gather round?
Songs in the night he giveth.

No storm can shake
my inmost calm
while to that Rock
I’m clinging.

Since love is Lord
of heaven and earth,
how can I keep from singing?

The peace of Christ
makes fresh my heart,
a fountain ever springing!

All things are mine
since I am his!
How can I keep from singing?

No storm can shake
my inmost calm
while to that Rock
I’m clinging.

Since love is Lord
of heaven and earth,
how can I keep from singing?

Lay Reader: Scripture

2 Corinthians 8:7-15
(NRSV)
.
.
Lay Reader: From Paul’s second letter to his congregation in Corinth:

Lay Reader: Scripture Reading: 2 Corinthians 8:7–15 (NRSV)

Now as you excel in everything—in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in utmost eagerness, and in our love for you—so we want you to excel also in this generous undertaking.

I do not say this as a command, but I am testing the genuineness of your love against the earnestness of others.

For you know the generous act of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that by his poverty you might become rich.

And in this matter I am giving my advice: it is appropriate for you who began last year not only to do something but even to desire to do something—

now finish doing it, so that your eagerness may be matched by completing it according to your means.

For if the eagerness is there, the gift is acceptable according to what one has—not according to what one does not have.

I do not mean that there should be relief for others and pressure on you, but it is a question of a fair balance between

your present abundance and their need, so that their abundance may be for your need, in order that there may be a fair balance.

As it is written, “The one who had much did not have too much, and the one who had little did not have too little.”

Lay Reader: Scripture Response

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

All: Praise be to God.

(The singing bowl is rung.)

Pastor: Pastoral Prayer

Pastor: (use your own or embellish this)

Dear God, the creator of all things based on love.
You created us in your image of love.
There have been times we have fallen short of that love,
not only to you but to each other and all of creation.
forgive us today.
We know that you know all those prayers we have voiced, and all those unvoiced.
We ask your blessings on all those situations.

We also ask your wisdom as local, national and world leaders make decisions,
negotiate, and initiate actions, praying for new solutions to old issues,
creative and peace-filled futures for all those places in your world
where hunger, strife and war continue.
We thank you for the comforting strength and compassion of the Holy Spirit
bringing love and grace and all we do.
In Jesus’ name we pray.

This we ask in the Name of Jesus Christ who taught us to pray:

Pastor: The Lord's Prayer

ALL: Our Father (God/Mother/Creator),
who art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy name.

ALL: Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.

ALL: Forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors (sins/trespasses)

ALL: Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

ALL: For thine is the kingdom, and the power,
and the glory forever.
Amen.

(Pastor and Communion Assistant move to the Communion table.)

Song: "In the Singing" (TFWS#2255)

In the singing, in the silence,
in the hands expectant, open,
in the blessing, in the breaking,
in the Presence at this table

Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ,
be the wine of grace:
Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ,
be the bread of peace.

In the question, in the answer,
in the moment of acceptance,
in the heart’s cry, in the healing,
in the circle of your people

Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ,
be the wine of grace:
Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ,
be the bread of peace.

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.

Pastor: 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

Communion Assistant: 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.

Communion Assistant: 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

Pastor: 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."

Pastor: (hold and break bread)

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

Pastor: 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."

Pastor: (hold and fill cup)

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

Communion Assistant: Communion

Communion Assistant: 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.

When we have served all those who come forward,
raise your hand 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.

Song: "The Trees of the Field"

Song Leader: Please rise as you are able and sing our closing song.

You shall go
out with joy
And be led
forth with peace

The mountains
and the hills
Will break forth
before you

There'll be
shouts of joy
And all the trees
of the field

Will clap
will clap their hands

And all the trees
of the field
Will clap their hands

The trees of the field
Will clap their hands

The trees of the field
Will clap their hands
While you go out with joy

You shall go
out with joy
And be led
forth with peace

The mountains
and the hills
Will break forth
before you

There'll be
shouts of joy
And all the trees
of the field

Will clap
will clap their hands

And all the trees
of the field
Will clap their hands

The trees of the field
Will clap their hands

The trees of the field
Will clap their hands
While you go out with joy

And you go out with joy!

Pastor: Benediction

Pastor: Dear Friends as we go out into the world and when a storm brews in life,
remember to be in “Peace and be still” knowing that God’s presence never leaves us.
Be the light of peace to a world which seeks it
in the Name of God who created, redeems, and sustains us.
Amen.
