We meet in different buildings; in different towns.

We speak different languages and sing different hymns.

We wear different clothing and have different gifts and talents.yet, as we gather together for worship on Sundays,

we become one body, one family in Christ.

We join together on one journey,

the journey to unite with the Risen Christ.

We join together with god as the Kingdom of God comes

and as God’s will is done.

Let us join with all our brothers and sisters in worship

and true communion with God this day. Amen.

OPENING MUSIC: “Holy Holy Holy, Lord God Almighty” #64 UMH

OPENING PRAYER: Our Father, forgive us for thinking small thoughts of you and for ignoring your immensity and greatness.

Lord Jesus forgive us when we forget that You rule the nations and our small lives.Holy Spirit, we offend you by minimizing your power and squandering your gifts.

We confess that our blindness to your glory, O triune God,

has resulted in shallow confession, tepid conviction and only mind repentance.

Have mercy upon us. In Jesus’ name. Amen
