Prelude Special Music  Praise Band

* Call to Worship Leader: Come, let us praise the God of Creation who offers to us such bounteous love. People: We bring our praise to God in gratitude for the many gifts which God has given to us. Leader: As we reach out in love to each other, God’s love shines through us. People: As we reach out in caring to each other, God’s love brings healing light. All: For the harvests of the Spirit, thanks be to God; for the good we all inherit, thanks be to God; for the wonders that astound us, for the truths that still confound us, most of all, that love has found us, thanks be to God.

* Opening Hymn Come, Ye Thankful People, Come  Hymn #367 (all)

Prayer of Adoration & Confession (unison)
Forgive us Lord, for it is easy to get caught up in the mood of the coming season. We confess our ease in focusing on the secular "reason for the season" which is to buy and spend. Slow us down, Lord. In this season of Thanksgiving, let us offer our prayers of gratitude for your constant care. You have blessed us with work to be done, harvests to be gathered in, and people with whom to share our bounty. We are called to look beyond our laden tables and filled cupboards to those for whom this time is just another day of hunger and loss. Help us to reach out to our friends and neighbors and to those whom we have called strangers. Remind us that the harvest is given to be shared and not hoarded. Open our hearts in actions of gratitude that we may truly offer our praise and thanksgiving to you. AMEN.

(A moment for silent reflection)

Assurance of Pardon Leader: We are not alone. No matter how lonely we may feel, God is with us. God’s loving care surrounds each and every one of us. Feel the power of God’s love in you. Friends, be at peace and Believe the Good News of the Gospel! People: In Jesus Christ We Are Forgiven!
