CALL TO WORSHIP
Let’s pray together: We come to church hungry, Lord! We are hungry for comfort, hungry for love, hungry for a new way of living, hungry for your word.
Thank you for giving us this place and this time to worship,
and we are eager to taste your goodness in community, with our brothers and sisters. Bless us as we feast on the Bread of Life today. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.

WELCOME & ANNOUNCEMENTS
O God, who is here — in this place, now — in our midst; Empower us to praise You, not with words and actions which come from outside of us, but from within us; Dwell in us more fully that we may sing to You with all our being; Fill us with a sense of Your joy, that we might actually delight in Your worship; Focus us upon Your self-giving Love, which is above every love we have ever known, the source of all.
O God, who is here — in this place, now — in our midst; Make Your love real here and now, through Jesus Christ. Amen.

We give you but your own, whate’er the gift may be;
all that we have is yours alone, we give it gratefully.
Loving God, Bless what we offer to you on these plates and within our hearts, O Lord – that it may worthy of the example we have received – we ask it in Jesus’ name. Amen.
