CALL TO WORSHIP: And we are the Creator's people.
but not the only part,
We are called to be blessing,
To be caretakers, to be overseers,
To have "dominion" on God's behalf.
We will use all our abilities to worship God
And to live out the call we have been given
To care for creation in love and respect,
now and always.
May it be so. Richart Bott,
PASSING OF THE PEACE- And also with you
As you are able and comfortable, let us make peace with one another.

CHIDREN'S TIME LIGHTING OF THE CHRIST CANDLE
Jesus is our friend who loves us always
PRAYER OF CONFESSION AND ASSURANCE OF PARDON:
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.
