WE GATHER TO PRAISE GOD

MUSIC PRELUDE (A time for quiet reflection and preparation for worship)

CALL TO WORSHIP :
At times, the road of life can be a dry, lonely place.
A lonely road we travel, always on the lookout for signs of danger and signs of hope.
With open arms, we are welcomed into God's house, finding a repreive from the road and its hazards.
We delight as we reconnect with each other and celebrate the bounty God showers upon us as we worship today.
-Ryan McNally, St. Mark's U.C. Cannifton, ON.

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.

CREED :

We are not alone,
we live in God's world.

We believe in God:

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, c 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.

INVITATION TO INVEST IN GOD'S MISSION:

DOXOLOGY

SCRIPTURE READING: John 12:1-8 (NRSV)
MARY ANOINTS JESUS
Six days before the Passover Jesus came to Bethany, the home of Lazarus, whom he had raised from the dead. >There they gave a dinner for him. Martha served, and Lazarus was one of those at the table with him. Mary took a pound of costly perfume made of pure nard, anointed Jesus' feet, and wiped them with her hair. The house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume. But Judas Iscariot, one of his disciples (the one who was about to betray him), said, "Why was this perfume not sold for three hundred denariiand the money given to the poor?"(He said this not because he cared about the poor, but because he was a thief; he kept the common purse and used to steal what was put into it.)Jesus said, "Leave her alone. She bought it so that she might keep it for the day of my burial. You always have the poor with you, but you do not always have me."

MESSAGE: "Cost of Care"
