Hymn Preview / Prelude                        


Hymn  Come, Thou Almighty King (UMH 61, lyrics)

Opening Prayer
     God our deliverer,
     who led your people
     through the wilderness
     and who leads us still:

          Take us back to the beginning,
          to that first word of invitation
          when the path stretched onward
          and we offered ourselves to the journey.

     Take us back to the beginning,
     to the waters of baptism
     when the heavens were torn open
     and your glory overwhelmed.

          May the days ahead of us
          renew our hearts within us
          that we might love as you love
          and live as you lived. Amen.

Hymn  All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name, v.1,4-6 (UMH 154, lyrics)

     Prayer of Thanksgiving   
          Holy God, we offer our gifts and our whole selves so
          nothing might hold us back from encountering the

          God anew. In the name of Christ, we pray. Amen.

Sending Forth  Nothing Between (UMH 373, lyrics)
