ACKNOWLEGEMENT OF THE LAND
We acknowledge that we worship and live onthe traditional
territory of the Anishinaabeg, Haudenosaunee, Attawandaron (Neutral), and
Wedat peoples. This territory is covered by the Upper Canada Treaties.
(We invite you to quiet reflection and
reparation for worship)
CALL TO WORSHIP:
God has led us through our wildernesses.
God has led us into a plentiful land.
God is the fountain of living water.
Come to the Water! Come to God!
"O that my people would listen to me,
O that they would walk in my ways!"
God is our strength. God is our helper.
Enter the sanctuary. Come and listen.

ANTHEM: Nancy Quinn
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.
