Believe it or Not, You Have a Devine Mission

Sunday, June 7, 2020
Welcome to Worship and Communion! 
 
We invite you to bring a piece of bread (or whatever you can find) and a cup of juice (or whatever you can find) and join us for Communion. All are welcome.
 
Prelude
Adam: God be with you.
All: And also with you.
 
Welcome and Announcements – Adam Ericksen
 
Lighting of the Peace Candle – Amira Stanley and Adam
Adam: Our tradition at CUCC is to light a peace candle at the beginning of each worship service to center ourselves around the Peace of God. Amira will lead us in the liturgy as Gavin lights the candle…
Amira: I invite you to join us in lighting the peace candle…
 
All: We pray for peace
in our hearts,
in our homes,
in our community,
in our nation,
and in our world.
 
Imagining a Different World
 
Scripture Readings
Genesis 1:27
Matthew 28:16-20
 
*Call to Worship – Amira
Amira: Please join us in the call to worship…
Amira: Jesus calls us on a great mission.
All: But many of us have doubts.
Amira: That’s okay. Jesus still calls us on a mission. And all authority has been given to him.
All: What is this authority?
Amira: It’s the authority to love boldly and to work for a more just world.
All: Together we will love more boldly as we work for a more just world. Amen.
 
Children’s Moment
 
*Passing of the Peace – Amira
Amira: Friends, although we are physically separated as we practice social distance, in reality we are all connected. And so we come to the point in our service where we pass the peace with one another. I invite you to open your palms up like this and imagine yourself connected to everyone watching this livestream as we pass the peace to one another.
Amira: Beloved of God, may the peace of Christ be with you.
All: And also with you.
 
Song: Oh For a World – Debbie, Rhonda, Dave, and Jeff
 
Invitation to the Offering Adam Ericksen
 
Prayers of the People – Adam
(After each prayer, Adam will say, “God in your love” and you are invited to respond with “hear our prayers.”)
 
Community Prayer and Lord’s Prayer - Amira
Our God,
Who art in Heaven,
Hallowed by 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 debts,
as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For Thine is the kingdom,
and the power, and the glory,
forever and ever. Amen.
 
Sermon – Believe it or not, you have a divine mission.
 
Communion – Adam and Amira
 
*Unison Benediction – Amira Stanley
May God bless you and keep you.
May God’s face shine upon you and be gracious unto you.
May God look upon you with kindness and bring you peace.
This day and forever more. Amen
-Numbers 6:24-26
