Opening Hymn                           Holy, Holy, Holy! Lord God Almighty

UMH #64                                                                                                                                          NICAEA

 

1. Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!

Early in the morning our song shall rise to thee.

Holy, holy, holy! Merciful and mighty, God in three persons, blessed Trinity!

 

2. Holy, holy, holy! All the saints adore thee,

casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea;

cherubim and seraphim falling down before thee, which wert, and art, and evermore shalt be.

 

3. Holy, holy, holy! Though the darkness hide thee,

though the eye of sinful man thy glory may not see,

only thou art holy; there is none beside thee, perfect in power, in love and purity.

 

4. Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!

All thy works shall praise thy name, in earth and sky and sea.

Holy, holy, holy! Merciful and mighty, God in three persons, blessed Trinity.

Musical Response                       “Come, Join the Dance of Trinity”                                       Kingsfold

Worship & Song

 

1. Come, join the dance of Trinity, before all worlds begun
the interweaving of the Three, the Father, Spirit, Son.
The universe of space and time did not arrive by chance,
but as the Three, in love and hope, made room within their dance.

 

2. Come, see the face of Trinity, newborn in Bethlehem;
then bloodied by a crown of thorns outside Jerusalem.
The dance of Trinity is meant for human flesh and bone;
when fear confines the dance in death, God rolls away the stone.

 

3. Come, speak aloud of Trinity, as wind and tongues of flame

Set people free at Pentecost to tell the Savior’s name.

We know the yoke of sin and death, our necks have worn it smooth;

Go tell the world of weight and woe that we are free to move!

 

4. Within the dance of Trinity, before all worlds begun,

We sing the praises of the Three, the Father, Spirit, Son.

Let voices rise and interweave, by love and hope set free,

To shape in song this joy, this life: the dance of Trinity.

 

Prayers of the People 

If you have a prayer you would like addressed during this time, please submit it to us via a prayer card. 

 

Confession and Pardon 

All: Merciful God, we confess that we have not loved you with our whole heart. We have failed to be an obedient church. We have not done your will, we have broken your law, we have rebelled against your love, we have not loved our neighbors, and we have not heard the cry of the needy. Forgive us, we pray. Free us for joyful obedience, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.  
 
Please take a moment of silence. 
 

Pastor: Hear the good news:  

Christ died for us while we were yet sinners; 

That proves God’s love toward us.  

In the name of Jesus Christ, you are forgiven! 
 

All: In the name of Jesus Christ, you are forgiven!  Glory to God. Amen.                                                                            

 

Lord’s Prayer

 

           Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, for thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.

 

Closing Hymn                                      “Go Forth for God” (vs. 1, 2 & 4)

UMH #670                                                                                                                                        GENEVA

 

1. Go forth for God, go to the world in peace; be of good courage, armed with heavenly grace, in God’s good Spirit, daily to increase,

till in the kingdom we see face to face. Go forth for God, go to the world in peace.

 

2. Go forth for God, go to the world in love; strengthen the faint, give courage to the weak; help the afflicted; richly from above

God’s love supplies the grace and power we seek. Go forth for God, go to the world in love.

 

4. Go forth for God, go to the world in joy, to serve God’s people every day and hour, and serving Christ, our every gift employ,

rejoicing in the Holy Spirit’s power. Go forth for God, go to the world in joy.
