PRELUDE Ryan Stoffel
CENTERING WORDS God of Perfect Holiness and Love: Pour out your Spirit upon me and complete the renovation of my heart into a mansion of love. I am an ordinary peasant waking each morning looking for bread. I know that there is nowhere I need to go, for you are already here. I see that there is nothing I need, for you have already given me everything by giving me yourself. Amen.
CALL TO WORSHIP Leader: Great and Glorious God, we gather to worship you. We lift our eyes to you, in reverent awe before your majesty. ALL: Great is the Lord our God, and greatly to be praised! Leader: Generous and Merciful God, we come to worship you. We lift our eyes to you, giving thanks for your compassion. ALL: Gracious is the Lord our God, and greatly to be praised! Leader: Welcoming and Empowering God, we worship you. We lift our eyes to you, and we celebrate your faithfulness. ALL: Holy is the Lord our God, and greatly to be praised! We lift our eyes, seeking to worship and praise our God. Amen.
Opening Prayer Protect us, O God, as we gather. In this sanctuary, we take our refuge in you. You alone are God, apart from you we have no good thing. You have not abandoned us but have brought us here to learn the way of life. In your presence is total celebration and beautiful things come to us from your right hand. Let us bless the Lord together! Hallelujah, Amen!
OPENING HYMN “In the Lord I’ll be Ever Thankful” #2195 In the Lord I’ll be ever thankful, in the Lord I will rejoice! Look to God, do not be afraid. Lift up your voices, the Lord is near, lift up your voices, the Lord is near.

GOD’S WORD FOR TODAY
GATHERING OF GIFTS Doxology: “Praise God From Whom All Blessings Flow” Hymnal #95
OFFERTORY PRAYER (in unison) Loving Father, Redeeming Son, and Holy Spirit: with our every breath, the very air that fills our lungs draws us closer to you. The water, food, and air that keep us alive are gifts from your goodness. Every gift we offer back to you is a result of our use of these basic gifts through your creation. As we bring our gifts to you this morning, remind us once again that the sky, the sea, the ground we walk on, and all the plants and animals are foundational blessings for which you have given us both charge and accountability, not just for our use but for what we leave for the generations that follow. We pray, through your love, that we may be found faithful stewards. In Christ, we pray. Amen.
*HYMN “Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing” Hymnal #400
