Dorchester United Church
WE GATHER TO PRAISE GOD
ACKNOWLEGEMENT OF THE LAND
We acknowledge that we worship and live on the traditional
territory of the Anishinaabeg, Haudenosaunee, Attawandaron (Neutral), and
Wedat peoples. This territory is covered by the Upper Canada Treaties.
(We invite you to quiet reflection and
preparation for worship)
CALL TO WORSHIP:
You guide us through the storms and night,
To lead us on to the light.
You hear us, hold us, and lead us on.
Through the darkness of night threatens,
You guide us by the river,
Your hand in ours.
PASSING OF THE PEACE-
The Grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Love of God, and the Fellowship
of the Holy Spirit be with you…
And also with you
As you are able and comfortable, let us make peace with one another.

CHIDREN'S TIME, LIGHTING OF THE CHRIST CANDLE
Jesus Christ is the light of the world.
Jesus is our friend who loves us always
PRAYER OF CONFESSION AND ASSURANCE OF PARDON:
We are not alone,
we live in God's world.
We believe in God:
who has created and is creating,
who has come in Jesus,
the Word made flesh,
to reconcile and make new,
who works in us and others
by the Spirit.
We trust in God.
We are called to be the Church:
to celebrate God's presence,
to live with respect in Creation,
to love and serve others,
to seek justice and resist evil,
to proclaim Jesus, crucified and risen,
our judge and our hope.
In life, in death, in life beyond death,
God is with us.
We are not alone.
Thanks be to God.
