CALL TO WORSHIP
If ye love me, Jesus said
Keep my commandments.
And he prayed that God will give us another comfortor,
That God may abide with us forever.
Even the Spirit of truth: whom the world cannot receive, because it cannot
see him, or know him: but you know him; for the Spirit dwells with you, and
shall be in you.
Jesus will not leave us orphaned,
"I will come to you." Is his promise.
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.

Jesus Christ is the light of the world.
Jesus is our friend who loves us always
We are not alone,
we live in God's world.
We believe in God:
who has created and is creating,
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,
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.
