WE GATHER TO PRAISE GOD

ACKNOWLEGEMENT OF THE LAND
Gathering together we walk the history of a healing journey, acknowledging the church's role in the suffering of our Indigenous brothers and sisters, recognizing that apologies are necessary, not only once, but time and again to educate our people of ongoing injustices and the work to renew respectful relationships. We pay our respect to the original caretakers of the land by acknowledging that we live and worship on the traditional lands of the Anishinaabek, Haudenosaunee, Lūnaapéewak, and Attawandaron peoples, on lands connected with the London Township and Sombra Treaties of 1796 and the Dish with One Spoon Covenant.

CALL TO WORSHIP

PRAYER OF APPROACH
One: We gather in this sacred place with great anticipation
We have come to worship our King
All: Wherever two or three are gathered to worship,
The Holy Spirit is present.
One: Open our eyes to witness the fantastic love and wondrous joy waiting to be revealed, even this day, even in this place.

HYMN: "Deep in Our Hearts" M.V. 154

PASSING OF THE PEACE
The peace of the Lord be always with you.
And also with you.

HYMN: " Jesus Bids Us Shine" V.U. 585

COMMUNION: Luke 22:19-28, John 6:48-51

People of Peace Communion Service

We come to the Lord's supper together as children of our one God.
Jesus makes the guest list, not us. Our family, chosen by God, is gathered from west and east, and includes everyone, even the lowest and the least .
Jesus, when he was resurrected from the dead, revealed himself to his disciples in the breaking of bread around a table. May we see the face of God today as we come to the Lord's Supper. On the night he was handed over, the night before he was crucified, Jesus gathered with his friends for a meal. He took the bread, and after blessing it, he broke it, saying, "This is my body, which is broken for you.
As often as you eat it, remember me." [break the bread]

Please pray with me: Jesus, as we take this bread, let it be a sign of all you did for us, and who you are for us.
Thank you for this bread of life. [people eat the bread]

After sharing the bread, Jesus took a cup of wine, and gave it to them to drink, saying, "This is my blood of the new covenant which is poured out for many." [hold up the cup]

Let's Pray: Jesus, as we drink this cup, let it be a sign for us of all you did for us, and who you are for us.
Thank you that you bring us peace that passes understanding. [people drink]
