Welcome and Introduction


Introit                                          “Spirit of the Living God”                                               Choir

Spirit of the living God, fall afresh on me.

Spirit of the living God, fall afresh on me.

Melt me, mold me, fill me, use me.

Spirit of the living God, fall afresh on me.


*Hymn                                        “O Church of God, United”                                             #547


*Opening Prayer

One:  Jesus prayed that we might be one.

            One in spirit

            One in mission

            In union and communion with each other and with You.

All:  Today, God, we confess fumblings and failures in accomplishing unity, as we set aside yet another day to remind ourselves of the task.

On this World Communion Sunday, give us eyes to recognize your reflection in the eyes of Christians everywhere.

Give us a mind to accept and celebrate our differences.

Give us a heart big enough to love your children everywhere.

We thank you for setting a table with space enough for us all! Amen.

*Chorus                                             “Lord, Be Glorified”   (verse 3)                               #2150

in The Faith We Sing

In our church, Lord, be glorified, be glorified.

In our church, Lord, be glorified today.
