Twelfth Sunday after Pentecost, August 12, 2018
Dorchester United Church

Wherever you are, whoever you are,
Join us in our Journey!

WE GATHER TO PRAISE GOD

MUSIC PRELUDE
(A time for quiet reflection and preparation for worship)

HYMN: "Lord, Prepare Me" M.V. 18 (3 Times)

WELCOME AND ANNOUNCEMENTS:

CALL TO WORSHIP:

Lord, you make your peace shine out in our midst; may our hearts sing your praises forever.
Lord, your love comes to liberate our lives; may our hearts sing your praises forever.
For a road of justice and freedom, for the leaders of all nations; Lord, may all nations give you thanks.
For all believers, witnesses to hope; make your face shine upon us.
For all who give their life because of Christ and the Gospel; in them lives your praise forever.
For all you have entrusted to us, in them lives your praise forever.

OPENING PRAYER (in unison)
Christ, Saviour of every life, you come to us always. Welcoming you in the peace of our nights, in the silence of our days, in the beauty of creation, in the hours of intense struggle, welcoming you means knowing that you will be with us in every situation that we face. Amen.
We continue to pray with the words that Jesus taught us to pray, singing together: The Lord's Prayer (V.U. 960)

HYMN: "Teach Me, God, To Wonder" V.U. 299

TIME WITH THE CHILDREN:

SERVICE OF LIGHTING THE CANDLE:
Jesus Christ is the light of the world.
Jesus is our friend who loves us always.
ANTHEM:

WE HEAR GOD'S LOVING WORD FOR US

PRAYER FOR ILLUMINATION: As we join together in worship, open us to your call for each of us. Then send us out into the world to show by word and deed your everlasting love.

NEW TESTAMENT READING: John 6: 35; 41 - 516
This is the witness of the people of Israel.
Thanks be to God.

RESPONSIVE PSALM: Psalm 130 (V.U. 853)

HYMN: "Spirit of The Living God" V.U. 372

MESSAGE: "No Better Than This"

RESPONSE : "Lord, Listen to Your Children Praying"
V.U. 400
Lord, listen to your children praying,
Lord, send your Spirit in this place,
Lord, listen to your children praying,
Send us love, send us power, send us grace.

WE RESPOND TO GOD'S WORD IN FAITH AND ACTION

PASTORAL PRAYER:

OFFERING INVITATION:
Christ, by your Spirit, you come and kindle a burning light in us. We know well that it is not we who create this source of light but you, the Risen Christ. We take the risk of following you and accompanying, in our turn, those whom you entrust to us.
OFFERTORY RESPONSE: Grant us, God, the grace of giving, with a spirit large and free, that ourselves and all our living we may offer faithfully. V.U. 540

OFFERTORY PRAYER: O Christ, you take upon yourself all our burdens so that we can constantly begin anew to walk with lightened step from our own will towards your coming Kingdom. And through us, though we hardly dare to hope it, you offer to make every human being a reflection of your face. Amen.

HYMN: "Love Is The Touch" M.V. 89

COMMISSIONING: We have opened our hearts to God's Spirit in this Pentecost Season. As you go from this place, let your breath give life to others and to all of God's creation. Let God's Spirit breathe into you with goodness and breathe out of you in love. With your every breath and with the breath of all that lives, give praise to God. Amen. (Robin Wardlaw, Glen Rhodes U.C., Toronto)
