*Opening Hymn UMH #568            Christ for the World We Sing (vs. 1 & 3)

 

  1. Christ for the world we sing, the world to Christ we bring,

with loving zeal; the poor, and them that mourn,

the faint and overborne, sin-sick and sorrow-worn, whom Christ doth heal.

 

  1. Christ for the world we sing, the world to Christ we bring,

with one accord; with us the work to share,

with us reproach to dare, with us the cross to bear, for Christ our Lord.

Master who acts as a slave to them. (Refrain)

serving as though we are slaves,

this is the way we should live with you. (Refrain)

Invitation to Offering (OL)

 

Almighty Giver of All Good Gifts: Grow in us the wisdom to know that all we have to give is in our hands because you have given to us first. Remind us that you have called us to be your people, heroic in our patience, forgiveness, and love. May the gifts we share reflect our gratitude for your many blessings. We pray this in the holy name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior. 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 UMH #581     Lord, Whose Love Through Humble Service (vs. 1 & 4)

                                                                                         

  1. Lord, whose love through humble service bore the weight of human need,

Who upon the cross, forsaken, offered mercy’s perfect deed:

We, your servants, bring the worship not of voice alone, but heart,

Consecrating to your purpose every gift that you impart.

 

  1. Called by worship to your service, forth in your dear name we go

To the child, the youth, the aged, love in living deeds to show;

Hope and health, good will and comfort, counsel, aid, and peace we give,

That your servants, Lord, in freedom may your mercy know, and live.

waking or sleeping, thy presence my light.

I ever with thee and thou with me, Lord;
Thou and thou only, first in my heart,
great God of heaven, my treasure thou are.

Invitation to Offering (OL)
Mighty and all-knowing God who sees us as we are and as we might be: What offering can we give that will bring you joy? We offer our gifts that you might dedicate them to the work of caring and compassion in our neighborhoods, in our nations, and throughout the world. Yet all the money we have can’t accomplish what you can make happen if we simply let Christ dwell in our hearts – not for an hour on Sundays but every hour of every day. This is the offering we dedicate this day. In Christ, our healer, we pray. Amen.

*Closing Hymn A Roman Centurion Sought Out the Lord (vs. 1, 2 & 3)

1. A Roman centurion sought out the Lord:
“My servant is suffering, but just give the word!
For I have authority; you have it, too.
I know he’ll be well with a blessing from you.”
 
2. Then Jesus responded to those who were near,
“There’s not, in God’s people, the faith I’ve found here.
And someday God’s kingdom will bring a surprise
With outsiders in and the heirs left outside.”
 
3. The Lord sent him home and it soon was revealed
That just at that moment, the servant was healed.
That outsider saw it; may we see it, too:
That Christ has the power to make our lives new.

1 Children of the heavenly Father safely in his bosom gather;
nestling bird nor star in heaven such a refuge e’er was given.

unto them his grace he showeth, and their sorrows all he knoweth.

4 Though he giveth or he taketh, God his children ne’er forsaketh;
his the loving purpose solely to preserve them pure and holy.

is laid for your faith in his excellent word!
What more can he say than to you he hath said,
to you who for refuge to Jesus have fled?


2. “Fear not, I am with thee, O be not dismayed,
for I am thy God and will still give thee aid;
I’ll strengthen and help thee, and cause thee to stand
upheld by my righteous, omnipotent hand.
