Lighting of the Peace Candle – Jessica Gonzalez
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. I invite you to join us in lighting the peace candle…
All: We pray for peace
in our hearts,
in our homes,
in our communities,
in our nations,
and in our worlds.

Passing of the Peace – Jean Herrera
One: Friends, we come to the moment where we pass the peace. I invite you to open your palms up as we pass the peace to one another.
One: Beloved of God, may the peace of Christ be with you.
All: And also with you.

Community Prayer and Lord’s Prayer – Emily Benfit and Raleen Hungate 
Our God,
Who art in Heaven,
Hallowed be 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.
