*CALL TO WORSHIP

      Come, let us worship the Creator with hearts open to all people, where pride

      and prejudice once dwelt;

         Let us worship Creator with minds open to the wisdom of Native

         peoples, where listening and respect once had no place.                              

      Let us honor the One who freely gives by showing honor to those who were

      once and still remain oppressed.

         Let us worship the God of diversity, who made the world in colors, in seasons, in endless variety; Who created the diversity of the earth’s                  peoples in His image.

All: We were created to honor one another and in so doing we honor the                    Creator. Let us honor Him today by reflecting in our worship and in life His            image –love.

GREAT THANKSGIVING

    The Lord be with you.

         And also with you.

Lift up your hearts.

         We lift them up to the Lord.

     Let us give our thanks to the Lord our God.

         It is right to give our thanks and praise.

 

     And so, with your people 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 the one who comes in the name

         of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest.

 

     As your disciples, walking with Christ, we proclaim the mystery of faith.

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