Welcome & Greeting


Hymn TFWS 2236 Gather Us In

1. Here in this place new light is streaming,

now is the darkness vanished away,

see in this space our fears and our dreamings,

brought here to you in the light of this day.

Gather us in - the lost and forsaken,

gather us in the blind and the lame;

call to us now, and we shall awaken,

we shall arise at the sound of our name.


4. Not in the dark of buildings confining,

not in some heaven , light-years away,

but here in this place the new light is shining,

now is the Kingdom, now is the day.

Gather us in and hold us forever,

gather us in and make us your own;

gather us in – all peoples together,

fire of love in our flesh and our bone.


Musical Call To Worship

Call To Worship

One: Rushing Wind of the Spirit, breathe new life into us!

All: Blazing Flame of the Spirit, burn away our fears!

One: Comforting Presence of the Spirit, heal our wounds!

All: Let us be prepared to worship and praise you, O Holy Spirit.

One: Spirit of God, come upon us this day and fill us with your love.

All: Make us be people who will proclaim God’s good news in all that we do. Amen.

Hymn TFWS 2272 Holy Ground

We are standing on holy ground,

and I know that there are angels all around;

let us praise Jesus now;

we are standing in his presence on holy ground.


We Pray Together

Congregational Prayer Rev. Sarah Steidtmann

All: God of wind and fire, embolden us this day to receive your power. Help us to proclaim the wondrous things that you have done and continue to do in our lives. Give us strength and courage to share the Good News of your love and your presence. For we ask this in Jesus’ Name. Amen.


The Pastoral Prayer Rev. Sarah Steidtmann


The Lord’s Prayer found in the UMH 895

All: Our Father, 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 trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.


Hymn UMH 334 Sweet, Sweet Spirit

There's a sweet, sweet Spirit in this place, and I know that it's the Spirit of the Lord; there are sweet expressions on each face, and I know they feel the presence of the Lord.


Sweet Holy Spirit, sweet heavenly Dove, stay right here with us,

filling us with your love; and for these blessings

we lift our hearts in praise; without a doubt we'll know

that we have been revived when we shall leave this place.
