Prelude Come to the Table of Grace  Alex Danson

Call to Worship (Responsive) Bruce Myers & Kay Chabot
Pastor: Gather us in,
the lost and the lonely,
the broken and breaking,
the tired and the aching
who long for the nourishment
found at your feast.


Kay: the done and the doubting,
the wishing and wondering,
the puzzled and pondering
who long for the company
found at your feast.


Pastor: the proud and pretentious,
the sure and superior,
the never inferior,
who long for the leveling
found at your feast.


Kay: the bright and the bustling,
the stirrers and shakers,
the kind laughter makers
who long for the deeper joys
found at your feast.


Pastor: from corner or limelight,
from mansion or campsite,
from fears and obsession,
from tears and depression,
from untold excesses,
from treasured successes,
to meet, to eat,
be given a seat,
be joined to the vine,
be offered new wine,
become like the least,
be found at the feast.

Invitation Bruce Myers & Kay Chabot
Pastor: The table of bread and wine is now to be made ready.
It is the table of company with Jesus, and all who love him.
It is the table of sharing with the poor of the world,
with whom Jesus identified himself.
It is the table of communion with the arth,
in which Christ became incarnate.

Kay: So come to this table,
you who have much faith and you who have little,
you who have been here often
and you who have not been for a long time,
you who have tried to follow,
and you who have failed.

Come, not because it is I who invite you:
it is our Lord.
It is his will that those who want him
should meet him here.

The Great Thanksgiving Rev. Bruce Myers
Pastor: The Lord be with.
All: And also with you.
Pastor: Lift up your hearts.
All: We lift them to the Lord.
Pastor: Let us give thanks to the Lord.
All: It is right to give our thanks and praise.

Communion of the People

Prayer after Communion Bruce Myers & Kay Chabot
Bruce: Let us pray.
In gratitude, in deep gratitude for this moment,
this meal,
and the people with whom we have shared,
we give ourselves to you.

Kay: Take us out to live as changed people
because we have shared the Living Bread
and cannot remain the same.

Bruce: Ask much of us,
expect much from us,
enable much by us,
encourage many through us.

Kay: So, Lord, may we live to your glory,
both as inhabitants of earth
and citizens of the commonwealth of heaven. Amen.

Morning Tithes and Offerings
I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, to present yourselves as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God.
Let us offer our lives to the Lord.

Offertory You Satisfy the Hungry Heart  Alex Danson

Doxology Hymn #606

Prayer of Dedication
God of unending gifts, we praise you for your abundant goodness.
As you are generous, we want to be generous too.
May the gifts we bring extend your generosity into the world,
so that all people may be made whole by your goodness and grace. Amen.

A Challenge to Go Forth Rev. Bruce Myers
From where we are to
where you need us;

All: Jesus, now lead on

From the security of what
we know, to the adventure
of what you will reveal

All: Jesus, now lead on

To refashion a fabric of this
world until it resembles
the shape of your kingdom

All: Jesus, now lead on

Because good things
have been prepared for
those who love God

All: Jesus, now lead on
