 Lighting of the Peace Candle – Amy Brinkley 
  
 A: 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 will lead us in the liturgy as Abbie lights the candle…

 and in our worlds.

 All: The earth, the trees, the oceans
 the animals and the people.
  
 One: For God so loved the world;
 
 
 All: In success and failure.
 In despair and in hope.
 in mediocrity and extraordinary.
  
 One: For God so loved the world
  
 All: Enough to become one of us.
 Enough to suffer alongside with us.
 Enough to offer new life for us.

 All: Let us so love one another. Amen.
  
 Children’s Moment - Adam
  
 Passing of the Peace – Amy
  
 Amy: 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. Beloved of God, may the peace of Christ be with you.
  
 All: And also with you.
  
 Song: The Old Gospel Ship, sung by Debbie, Laurel, 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 - Amy
  
 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.
  
 Sermon – Who Is God, Anyway?
  
 Unison Benediction – Amy
  
 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
