CALL TO WORSHIP:
Gracious and Loving God, keeper of our souls in heaven
We worship this morning in remembrance of those who have gone before us
Holding their memory deep in our hearts
As they have led the way before us
Shared the Gospel with us
Taught us about Your love and grace
Guided us to Jesus, so we may guide others that they may hear of your wonderous deeds. For those saints who have shown us the way, we give you thanks, now and forever.
PASSING OF THE PEACE
With respect to flu season and the health of our congregation, let us make
peace with one another.
The peace of the Lord be always with you. And also with you.
"I Have Called You by Your Name" M.V. 161
(Please Remain Standing for the Sanctus) *SANCTUS (Holy, Holy, Holy

CHIDREN'S TIME LIGHTING OF THE CHRIST CANDLE
Jesus Christ is the light of the world.
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.
