NINETEENTH SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST

OCTOBER 15, 2017
Dorchester United Church

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

WE GATHER TO PRAISE GOD

TO PONDER: We live in a world of such rich abundance. Why do so many millions have to go hungry?

MUSIC PRELUDE

HYMN: " Worship the Lord" V.U. 401

WELCOME AND ANNOUNCEMENTS

CALL TO WORSHIP

God has made this day and calls us to rejoice in it.
God has removed the mantle of darkness from this day.
This is a day of new life for all people.
The Saviour of the world has brought us safely home.
We give thanks and celebrate God's new day.
With joy in our hearts we worship God.

OPENING PRAYER (IN UNISON)
O God, with seed and sun You have blessed us with a harvest to help feed the world. You give us warmth and sunshine to grow all that we need. But we have known pain and grief in other times. May we remember that You are a God of abundance. We offer our faith as seed for the harvest of Your life-giving food. . . .
AMEN

HYMN: "What a friend we have in Jesus" V.U. 664

TIME WITH THE CHILDREN
Jean Davis - Dorchester Food Bank

SERVICE OF LIGHTING THE CANDLE
The light of the sun awakens us to God's new day.
The light of the Christ candle shines in the darkness
of our world.

ANTHEM

PRAYER OF CONFESSION (In Unison)
God, you hear our prayers and our cries come unto You. Listen to the words that our mouths cannot speak. We pray for Your guidance in this hour of our brokenness. You mend the fractured creation with a power that we cannot comprehend. Even so heal us of the wounds that we inflict upon ourselves. Our sin is ever before us. We want justice and peace for our world. Teach us how to let go of our selfish desires and seek Your help. In the name of the great Redeemer, Jesus Christ. AMEN

WORDS OF ASSURANCE
The love of God cannot be measured in human terms. It came at the cross when Jesus went to his death. God has forgiven us in the new life that a risen Saviour came to bring.

WE HEAR GOD'S LOVING WORD FOR US

PSALM 106 V.U. 830

GOSPEL: Matthew 22: 1-14

FIRST TESTAMENT : Isaiah 25: 1-9

MESSAGE "God's Feast "

RESPONSE: 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.

PASTORAL PRAYER
WE RESPOND TO GOD'S WORD IN FAITH AND ACTION

HYMN: " I can feel You near me God" M.V. 48

OFFERING INVITATION
