PENTECOST SUNDAY, JUNE 4, 2017

Dorchester United Church

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

WE GATHER TO PRAISE GOD

MUSIC PRELUDE

HYMN: "It Only Takes a Spark" V.U. 289

WELCOME AND ANNOUNCEMENTS:

CALL TO WORSHIP:

The disciples waited, and so did the Spirit.

The disciples moved, and so did the Spirit.

The disciples spoke, and so did the Spirit.

Together, the disciples and the Spirit met and lived.

Together, the disciples and the Spirit shared and witnessed.

Together,the disciples and the Spirit birthed the church.

The Body of Christ. The communion of the Spirit. Us!

As the Body, in communion, all together,

Let us worship God!

OPENING PRAYER (in unison)

Transform us, Living, Loving God. Transform us as individuals and transform us as a faith community. Transform our fear to confidence, our apathy to commitment. Transform our anxiety to peace, our doubt to hope. Transform our self-concern to caring action for others, our "care-less-ness" to compassion and a strong desire for justice. We will take our courage from the attitude of Jesus. We will be reassured by those who follow the Jesus Way. Amen.

We continue to pray with the words that Jesus taught us to pray, singing together: THE LORD'S PRAYER

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: "Who is my Mother?" (M.V. 178)

WE HEAR GOD'S LOVING WORD FOR US

PASTORAL PRAYER:

OFFERING INVITATION:
