April 17 Service

Prelude                                  

*Processional              

          In this place, among these people, God is worshipped, God is praised. We have seen the signs and wonders; the lost are found here, the dead are raised. We are living the Gospel story; lives are changed and mountains moved. Won’t you come and work among us? You are welcomed, you are loved.

Awesome God, you created the world and all that is in it. You blessed each element of creation with your love. You called us from slavery into witness and service. Be with us this day as we gather to worship. Clear our minds of all the distractions which would draw us away from you. Open our hearts and spirits and let your healing and empowering love flow in. Prepare us to be witnesses to your power and love as we use the gifts with which you have blessed us in your service. For we offer this prayer in the name of your Son our Lord Jesus Christ. AMEN.
