Fourth Sunday after Pentecost

June 28, 2020


Call to Worship

One: When we walk the pathways of destruction ...
All: We are met by the God of peace and reconciliation
One: When we sit and wonder if there is any way we can be of help ...
All: We encounter the Holy One who invites us to faithful service.
One: When we least expect it ...
All: The Holy One through the Spirit offers us life-giving water!

Opening Prayer 

Lord’s Prayer  (unison)

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

Hymn                                       I Sing the Mighty Power of God     (vs. 1 & 3)        

Call to Confession 

Prayer of Confession (unison)

Patient God, each and every day you offer to us new hope and special blessings. From the rising of the sun to its descent, the light of your love pours on your creation. We love all these things, but we want to hold onto each of your blessings just for ourselves. Teach us to share openly and willingly with others. Forgive our selfishness and turn it to selflessness in service to you. Free us to live with you and with each other in reconciling grace through the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Assurance of Pardon  

Gloria Patri

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost; as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end.  Amen, Amen.

Passing the Peace of Christ 

ONE: Since Christ has extended to us the peace of God, let us, as his disciples, spread his peace to others. The peace of Christ be with you.

ALL: And also with you.

ONE: We are now going to check to see who is with us this morning as our way of sharing Christ’s peace.
