Let love be genuine and live in harmony; hate what is evil, hold fast to what is good. Outdo one another in showing honor; be humble and never conceited. Love is stronger than death and jealousy is cruel as the grave. Floods cannot drown love and wealth cannot buy it.

Put love above all else; Let Christ’s peace rule your hearts. Always be forgiving, as Christ has forgiven you.

Love is not jealous or boastful, arrogant, rude or stubborn, irritable, resentful, or possessive. Love is patient and kind.

Do not love in word or speech only; love also indeed and truth. Receive each other in sincerity, Find mercy and grow old together.

OPENING HYMN: “Gather us In” #2236 TFWS

OPENING PRAYER Make us worthy lord, to serve those throughout the world who live and die in poverty or hunger. Give then, through our hands, this day their daily bread; and by our understanding love, give peace and joy. Amen


SCRIPTURE: Hebrews 13:1-8, 15-16 Read by: Cheryl Bell Luke 14:1, 7-14

SERMON “Hospitality: Modeling the Way of the Kingdom” Rev. David Nicol PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE

THE PEACE TITHES & OFFERINGS DOXOLOGY “Praise God from Whom all Blessings Flow” #94 UMH


The Lord be with you. And also with you. Lift up your hearts. We lift them up to the Lord. Let us give thanks to the Lord our God. It is right to give our thanks and praise.

...And so, with your people on earth and all the company of heaven

we praise your name and join their unending hymn:

Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might,

Heaven and earth are full of your glory. Hosanna in the highest.

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest.

...And so, in remembrance of these your mighty acts in Jesus Christ,

we offer ourselves in praise and thanksgiving

as a holy and living sacrifice, in union with Christ's offering for us,

as we proclaim the mystery of faith.

Christ has died; Christ is risen; Christ will come again.

...Through your Son Jesus Christ, with the Holy Spirit in your holy Church,

all honor and glory is yours, almighty Father (God ), now and for ever. Amen.
