*COMMUNION HYMN #620 (UM hymnal) “One Bread, One Body”







May God be with you.

And also with you.

People of God, lift up your hearts.

We lift them to the One who cradles our hearts in loving hands.

People of God, let us give thanks to the God who sets a Table for us.

We praise the Lord our God who welcomes us with open arms.


Therefore, we lift our voices, singing our praise with those in every time, and in every place, who have been brought out of death’s exile and who forever sing your joy:

(sing together) (Tune BUNESSAN- Morning Has Broken # 145 UM Hymnal)


God of Creation, Lord of all beauty, All creatures join in singing your love; Holy Compassion, Joy of our mornings, Fill us with grace which comes from above.


As we remember his grace and love, as we dare not forget his sacrifice for us, we sing of that mystery we call faith:

(sing together)

Christ of the outcast, Comfort of mourners, Neighbor to strangers, Love without end; Bearer of burdens, Grace ever with us, Blessing our children, Brother and Friend.


God in Community, Holy in One, all honor and glory are yours, as we sing our praises through all eternity:

(sing together)

Spirit of kindness, Breath of forgiveness, Faithful Companion, just as Christ said; God’s little children gathered together, Drink of salvation, feast on your Bread.
