INTRO TO WORSHIP
GREETINGS & WELCOME
CALL TO WORSHIP
Friends, we know what God desires of us:
That we do justice, and love kindness,
and walk humbly with God.
We gather this morning to remind each other about that,
To remember that now is always the right time
to do these things.
So with thanks in our hearts, let us worship God.
OPENING HYMN “Come, Now is the Time to Worship”
PRAYER OF CONFESSION Jo Ann Lynch (Video)
ASSURANCE OF FORGIVENESS
Friends, hear this Good News: the love of God is beyond measure, and you are included in that love. Know that you are forgiven and thus freed to love and serve. Alleluia! Amen.

Positive Thought for the Week
“The most wasted of days, is the one without laughter.”
A Prayer for Summer
Father, thank you for summer,
for green grass and honeysuckle,
leafy trees, running streams
bare feet, balmy days,
singing birds, laughing children,
baseball games, cookouts,
sunshine, clear skies,
the smell after a summer rain;
beauty and richness everywhere I turn. Amen.
