CENTERING WORDS

(Psalm 42, Galatians 3)

Pastor Bob

We hunger for the holy, longing for the living God. We gather as children of God, rejoicing in the promise.

CALL TO WORSHIP (Galatians 3)

Sharon Stewart – Liturgist

In Galatians, chapter 3, Paul writes that when we are baptized

into Christ, it is as if we clothe ourselves with him. “What might that look like, to be clothed with Christ?” Brothers and sisters, we gather to worship a God who wants to clothe us, to adorn us with goodness, to dress us with mercy, to cover us with grace. Let us worship God together!

BENEDICTION

(Luke 8:39 NRSV)    Pastor Bob

Jesus told the one who was healed and whole: “Return to your home, and declare how much God has done for you.” As our service ends, we too return to our homes. In all that we do and say, let us declare how much God has done for us.

Depart in Peace, Shalom.
