One: To you, O Lord, I lift up my soul.

One: Do not let those who wait for you be put to shame; let them be ashamed who are wantonly treacherous.

One: Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all day long.
Many: Be mindful of your mercy, O Lord, and of your steadfast love, for they have been from of old.
One: Do not remember the sins of my youth or my transgressions; according to your steadfast love remember me, for the sake of your goodness, O Lord!
Many: Good and upright is the Lord; therefore he instructs sinners in the way.
One: He leads the humble in what is right and teaches the humble his way.
Many: All the paths of the Lord are steadfast love and faithfulness, for those who keep his covenant and his decrees.
God of love, to whom our hearts are open, all desires known, and from whom no secrets are hidden; cleanse our hearts by the power of your Holy Spirit, that we may perfectly love you and worthily magnify your holy name; through Christ our Lord, Amen.

Praise Hymn: “To God Be the Glory” UMH# 98 vs. 1,3
To God be the glory, great things he hath done!
So loved he the world that he gave us his Son,
who yielded his life an atonement for sin,
and opened the life-gate that all may go in.
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
let the earth hear his voice!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
let the people rejoice!
O come to the Father thru Jesus the Son,
and give him the glory, great things he hath done!
Great things he hath taught us, great things he hath done,
and great our rejoicing thru Jesus the Son;
but purer, and higher, and greater will be
our wonder, our transport, when Jesus we see. (Refrain)
Message: Pastor Mary Beth Boesch Luke 10:25-37 (CEB)
Communion Hymn: “I Come With Joy” UMH#617 vs. 1-3
I come with joy to meet my Lord,
forgiven, loved and free,
in awe and wonder to recall
his life laid down for me,
his life laid down for me.
I come with Christians far and near
to find, as all are fed,
the new community of love
in Christ's communion bread,
in Christ's communion bread.
As Christ breaks bread and bids us share,
each proud division ends.
The love that made us makes us one,
and strangers now are friends,
and strangers now are friends.
The Communion Service
One: The Lord be with you!
Many: And also with you!
One: Lift up your hearts!
Many: We lift them up to the Lord!
One: Let us give thanks!
Many: It is just and right to give thanks.
The Apostle’s Creed
One: It is just and right and a good and joyful thing always and everywhere to give our thanks and praise to God. Now, let us join together in confessing our faith through the words of the Apostles’ Creed:
Many: We believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.
We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended to the dead.
On the third day he rose again;
he ascended into heaven,
he is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and he will come again to judge the living and the dead.
We believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.
Prayer of Confession and Assurance of Pardon
One: Christ invites all of us to come to the Table. And yet, we acknowledge that we often fail to love; we acknowledge that we are sinners living in sinful systems; and we acknowledge that we are all in need of God’s mercy and grace. Therefore, let us confess our sins:
Many: God of the living and the dead,
we are burdened by the things we have done
and by the things we have not done.
We remember our broken promises and missed opportunities;
the gifts we have taken for granted,
the love we have not shown or returned.
Forgive us, comfort and heal us.
Lift our guilt from us, that we may walk in freedom and grace. Amen.
One: May God, who is both power and love, forgive us and free us from our sin; heal and strengthen us by the power of the Holy Spirit; and bring us to new life through Christ our Lord. In the name of Jesus Christ, we are a forgiven people!
Many: Thanks be to God!
Prayer Over Bread and Cup
One: We give thanks to you, O God, for the goodness and love which you have made known to us in creation; in the calling of Israel to be your people; in your Story spoken through the prophets; and above all in the Word made flesh, Jesus, your Son. For in these last days you sent him to be incarnate from the Virgin Mary, to be the Savior and Redeemer of the world, who by your Spirit was anointed to preach good news to the poor, proclaim release to the captives, set at liberty those who are oppressed. Christ healed the sick, fed the hungry, ate with sinners, and established the new covenant for forgiveness of sins. We live in the hope of His coming again.
(Lift the bread, break it) We remember that on the night that our Lord Jesus Christ was betrayed, he took bread, and after giving thanks he broke it and he gave it to his disciples and said, “This is my body, given for you. Take and eat - all of you - in remembrance of me.”
(Lift the cup) Likewise, after the supper, he took the cup, and after giving thanks, he said, “This is the cup of the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for the forgiveness of sin. Do this in remembrance of me.”
And so, Lord God, in remembrance of these your mighty acts in our Lord Jesus Christ, we offer ourselves to you in praise and thanksgiving as a holy and living sacrifice, in union with the sacrifice of Christ for us, as we proclaim the mystery of our faith:
Many: Christ has died, Christ is risen, Christ will come again.
One: Hear us most merciful Father,
we know you create and intend all things
to be means of communion with you,
so sanctify these gifts,
send your Holy Spirit upon us and upon this bread and this cup, that,
overshadowed by His life-giving power,
they may become for us the Body and Blood of your son, Jesus the Messiah,
and we may be unified, healed, forgiven,
filled with your grace,
kindled with the fire of your love,
and renewed for the service of your kingdom.
Make yourself known in this supper and through us,
that we may be for the world the Body of Christ, redeemed by His blood until Christ comes in final victory.
All this we pray through Christ, and with Christ, and in Christ; all
praise, honor, and glory, are yours now and forever,
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, one God.
And all the people said:
The Lord’s Prayer
One: Because we all partake of the one bread and the one cup, we, though we are many, are one. So let us join in together in praying the prayer that the Lord taught all of the disciples to pray. Let us be so bold as to say:
Many: Our Father in heaven,
Hallowed be your name,
Your Kingdom come,
Your will be done,
On earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread,
Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us.
Save us from the time of trial,
And deliver us from evil.
For the Kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours, now and forever. Amen.
Giving the Bread and Cup
One: (Give instructions for coming forward to receive) The Table is prepared. All who are hungry and thirsty are invited to come forward to receive these gifts of grace. May Christ be fully formed in you. Come forward as you’re ready.
Closing Hymn: “Blessed Be the Tie That Binds” UMH#557 vs.1-3
Blest be the tie that binds
our hearts in Christian love;
the fellowship of kindred minds
is like to that above.
Before our Father's throne
we pour our ardent prayers;
our fears, our hopes, our aims are one,
our comforts and our cares.
We share our mutual woes,
our mutual burdens bear,
and often for each other flows
the sympathizing tear.
One: God of love, we thank you for feeding us with the spiritual food of the most precious body and blood of our savior Jesus the Messiah; and for assuring us in these holy mysteries that we are living members of the Body of Christ.
May God bless you and keep you; may God’s face shine upon you and be gracious unto you; may God’s countenance be lifted upon you and give you peace, from this day forth and forevermore. Amen.
Many: May the peace of the Lord go with us, wherever God may send us. May we embody the love, grace, and mercy of Christ to those we meet along the way. Amen.
Thank you for worshiping with us today!
