- Prayer before Worship
Ever present God, pour out your Spirit upon this worship.
May the faithful find nurture, the careless – awakening,
the doubting – courage, the anxious – calm, the tempted – help,
the sorrowful – comfort, the weary – rest, and the strong – renewal.
This we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.

We are not alone. We live in God’s World.
We believe in God: who has created and is creating.
Who has come in Jesus, the Word made flesh,
to reconcile and make new,
Who works in us and others by the Spirit.
We trust in God.
We are called to be the Church:
To celebrate God’s Presence, To live with respect in creation,
To love and serve others, To seek justice and resist evil,
To proclaim Jesus, crucified and risen,
our judge and our hope.
In life, in death, in life beyond death, God is with us.
We are not alone. Thanks be to God. Amen.
- LEARNING TIME
In peace, dear God, I come to You through Jesus Christ who makes me new
And while I run or play or rest, be with those whom I love best,
Guide me in your Holy Way, as You walk with me each day, AMEN.
