Call to Worship (Psalm 85)

Come! Join the fellowship of God’s people— people who gather as faithful disciples of Christ. We seek the One who frees us from uncertainty and doubt. Come! Join the welcome of God’s people— people who meet together for justice and peace. We seek the One who is trustworthy, the One who gives us what is good. Come! Join the celebration of God’s people— people of the One who was, and is, and shall ever be. We raise our voices in praise and honor to God, and worship the One who is faithful.

Opening Prayer (Colossians 2)

God of grace and God of glory, come and be known to us in our gathering together; come and be present in the songs we sing and in the prayers we raise. From the busy byways of life, we come to find once again that you are always present and always ready to receive us. As we affirm our faith this day, deepen the roots of our commitment, that we may learn your calling upon our lives. Surround us now with the love and comfort of your Holy Spirit and the direction and redemption of Christ.
Lord, with a cheerful heart, I sow my seed.
Today, I planted it in good ground.
I believe my needs are met,
my family is blessed, and I’m expecting a supernatural harvests in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Prayer: Lord of Hope and Peace, we have come this day asking for your mercy. Grant us your pardon. We have come this day seeking peace in our lives; grant us peace. Teach us how to be compassionate disciples for you. For we ask this in Christ's name.AMEN.
John 12:44-50 New International Version 44 Then Jesus cried out, “Whoever believes in me does not believe in me only, but in the one who sent me. 45 The one who looks at me is seeing the one who sent me. 46 I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness.
47 “If anyone hears my words but does not keep them, I do not judge that person. For I did not come to judge the world, but to save the world. 48 There is a judge for the one who rejects me and does not accept my words; the very words I have spoken will condemn them at the last day. 49 For I did not speak on my own, but the Father who sent me commanded me to say all that I have spoken. 50 I know that his command leads to eternal life. So whatever I say is just what the Father has told me to say.”

Benediction (Psalm 85)

As you go forth, know that you leave with the unfailing love of God. As you leave this place, know that by God’s strength you will be able to face the challenges of the coming week. As you return to your daily lives, know that your pursuit of peace reveals to the world that you are God’s children.Now to him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of his glory with great joy, to the only God, our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen.
