Adam: God be with you.
All: And also with you.

Welcome and Announcements – Adam

Lighting of the Peace Candle – Jessica and Joel
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.

Scripture Readings – Mark 10:17-31

Call to Worship – Jessica and Joel
Jessica: Please join us in the call to worship…
Jessica: We wonder, “What must we do to inherit eternal life?” The world tells us to:
All: Work harder.
Joel: Gain more wealth.
All: Get more likes.
Jessica: Strive for more power.
All: Become more popular.
Joel: But these do not lead to eternal life. So what does?
All: Love. May we receive God’s love and share it with one another.

Children’s Moment – Adam

Passing of the Peace – Jessica and Joel
Jessica: 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.

Joel: Beloved of God, may the peace of Christ be with you.
All: And also with you.

Song: We Cannot Own the Sunlit Sky – Rhonda, Dave, and Jeff
