RITUAL OF FRIENDSHIP (Please leave complete address)


        We gather this morning appreciating our freedom to worship God.

            May God continue to bless the church of Jesus Christ in this land.

We draw near to God who rules over all nations.

May God continue to bless our country and all the countries of the world.

We seek to live in harmony and peace together with all the people on the earth.

May God continue to establish peace on earth and help us understand that it begins in our hearts.

Come, let us worship the Lord!

The Lord be with you.

And also with you.

Lift up your hearts.

We lift them up to the Lord.

Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

It is right to give our thanks and praise.


And so, with your people in every land on earth and all the company of heaven we praise your name and join in their unending hymn:

Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might, heaven and earth are full of your glory. Hosanna in the highest. Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest.


And so we remember again as we proclaim the mystery of faith.

Christ has died, Christ is risen, Christ will come again.


By him, with him, and in him, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, all glory and honor is yours, almighty God, now and ever.

- Ushers Needed One of the important ministries here at First UMC is the one performed by our ushers. The Worship Committee is recruiting people to help fill in some of the open spots on our usher schedule and to develop a list of substitutes to fill in when out permanent ushers are unavailable. Many of our current ushers have served faithfully for a number of years. With summer approaching and the service times changing for the summer we are in need of people to help out by filling in some of the open slots. This summer would be a great time for anyone thinking about stepping up and helping with this ministry to check it out. and see if this is a way you would be able Please prayerfully consider whether this would be a way for you to fulfill your membership covenant to “faithfully participate in the ministries of the church by our prayers, our presence, our gifts, our service and our witness”.  Please contact Craig Sherman, Worship Chair if you wish to help out with this ministry.  Email: or 665-7182.
