WELCOME AND ANNOUNCEMENTS

CALL TO WORSHIP:

The peace of the living God has come to rest upon our busy lives.
We will find that peace as we learn the quiet of prayer.
The love of God will flow through our worship that we may find new opportunities for service.
The grace of God will seek out our every need.
May the restless gospel set our hearts on fire.
trong> We have been empowered to take on the mantle of God's agents in this hour of worship.

OPENING PRAYER
Send Your Spirit upon us, faithful God. Fill us with the mind of Christ. Unite us in the joy that was Yours in creation. May we look not only to our own well-being, but to the welfare of others. Crown this day with Your loving kindness for we seek to serve You as those who know the sacrifice of our gracious Friend and Saviour Jesus who taught us to pray together saying the LORDS PRAYER.

HYMN: "For the Fruit of All Creation" V.U. 227

TIME WITH THE CHILDREN

SERVICE OF LIGHTING THE CANDLE

The coming of light was a sign to Creation.

AMEN

WORDS OF ASSURANCE
