7th Sunday of Easter


PRELUDE and PREPARATION FOR WORSHIP

God is the creator of all, not just those who claim to be the people of God. God calls and welcomes all of humanity into community. We, who claim our love for Christ, are invited to extend extravagant welcome in both word and action to all of God’s children everywhere.

 

CALL TO WORSHIP 
From the north and south, from the east and west . . .

all are welcome here.

With hands raised high or hearts quietly pondering . . .

we come to worship God.

Bringing our love, opening our minds . . .

we draw near to God, near to each other, 

and near to Christ, the Word of God.

OPENING PRAYER
God of all nations, for creating us in all our diversity, 

yet calling us together in our common humanity, we offer you our thanks and praise.  Speak to us with your Spirit of Truth.  Reveal your loving presence to us, and guide us to display your loving Spirit in all that we say and do. Amen.

OFFERING – REFLECTION OF THANKSGIVING

Doxology UMH #95
 

PRAYER
God of wisdom and guidance, steer us, we pray, through our anxious times. The gifts we bring this day are a small part of all we have received. We push back our inclination to be more generous because of our anxiety about the economy. We hold back on sharing our faith and advocating for compassion and justice out of anxiety about the division in our world and in our neighborhood. We hold back on inviting neighbors to church out of anxiety about how they might view the church right now. Remind us that it is Jesus we offer to the world, not us. Help us to cast the anxiety on Jesus, for the one the tomb could not hold can carry our anxiety with ease. In the name of Jesus, who broke the hold of death once and for all. Amen.
