FIFTH SUNDAY AFTER THE EPIPHANY
FEBRUARY 4, 2018
Dorchester United Church

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

WE GATHER TO PRAISE GOD

TO PONDER : Isaiah says that God created the whole earth. If we are part of the created order, how can we stand idly by and not help to renew the scarred creation?

MUSICAL PRELUDE

HYMN: "God, whose almighty word" V.U. 313

WELCOME AND ANNOUNCEMENTS

CALL TO WORSHIP
God cares for each of us.
The breath of God sustains our very lives.
God is not moved by the power plays of our leaders.
God listens to the cries of the helpless.
God will come to the aid of all who trust in God's mercy.
We gather to celebrate a love that surpasses our understanding.

OPENING PRAYER
Gracious God, You are beyond our farthest reach, yet You remain intimately connected to every one of us. Release within us the power of Your boundless compassion, that with fresh vision we may behold the splendour of Your creation and commit ourselves with new energy to Your work of healing in the world. We ask this in the name of Jesus. AMEN

LIGHTING THE CHRIST CANDLE
It was a bright day in the city when Jesus came.
His presence outshone the sun.
His power to heal the people was the sign that God's reign had truly arrived,
The light of the Christ candle keeps every hope alive.

A PRAYER FOR THE DAY
We are a lost people, O God.
Show us the way.
We are a needy people, O God.
Be our comfort and strength.
We are a restless people, O God.
Be our purpose and peace.
We are a hungry people, O God.
Be our food and drink.

HYMN "Tell me the stories of Jesus" V.U. 357

ANTHEM

WE HEAR GOD'S LOVING WORD FOR US

FIRST TESTAMENT READING Isaiah 40: 21-31

GOSPEL READING: Mark 1: 29-39

MESSAGE: "TWENTY-FOUR HOUR IN THE CITY"

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

OFFERING INVITATION

OFFERTORY RESPONSE: For food in a world where many walk in hunger, for friends in a world where many walk alone, for faith in a world where many walk in fear, we give you thanks, O God. V.U. 552

OFFERTORY PRAYER: O God, we find it easier to speak of giving our lives to You, but harder to trust You with the concrete stuff of our days. May our trust lead to obedience and our obedience lead to giving. May these gifts become hope and light for the world. We pray for Your blessing in the name of Jesus. AMEN

HYMN: "Come touch our hearts" M.V. 12
