2 ~ ORDER OF WORSHIP ~ CHIMES Bob Oswald WELCOME AND ANNOUNCEMENTS Brief announcements from the congregation are welcome. Those wishing to make Announcements are asked to be in the front pews at the start of the announcements period. There will be opportunity to share prayer requests at the time of the Prayers of the Church. If you wish to offer a prayer request in written form, please fill out one of the yellow prayer request cards found in the pews and place it in the offering plate at the time of the offering. Large print editions of the bulletin and Chalice Hymnals are available at the back of the sanctuary. Nursery Room is available in the lower level of the Parish House. Children ages Birth-3 years may visit the Nursery with a parent at any time. *All who are able, please stand. Bold denotes unison voice. PRELUDE America the Beautiful Buryl Red CALL TO WORSHIP I was glad when they said to me, Let us go into the house of the Lord, where the smallest word can be the Word of God, where the briefest touch can be the touch of grace, where the smallest gift, wholeheartedly given, is building the realm of God. Friends, let us be at worship together, for God s spirit is here, God s presence is now calling us awake, calling us alive. *HYMN 34, Pilgrim (red) Awake, Awake to Love and Work *GATHERING PRAYER AND THE LORD'S PRAYER Giver of Life, as you gather us in once more, we watch for your presence, we listen for your wisdom, we offer ourselves for lives of love.

3 Teach us again today that we are made with hearts for giving; help us not to squander our gifts or withhold our best, but to live toward life with generous hearts. This we ask in Christ s name and spirit, as we also pray together: 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 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. Amen. *SUNG RESPONSE MESSAGE FOR ALL AGES Sarah Pradhan Following this, children may go to church school. READING FROM SCRIPTURE Mark 12:38-44 SERMON *HYMN 381, Chalice (blue) Take My Gifts OFFERING OF GIFTS Invitation Offertory Song for the Unsung Hero Pamela and Joseph Martin Senior Choir

4 *Doxology *Prayer of Dedication PRAYERS OF THE CHURCH Joys and Concerns Pastoral Prayer *HYMN 606, Chalice (blue) God Whose Giving Knows No Ending *BENEDICTION *BENEDITION RESPONSE God of the Nations Senior Choir *POSTLUDE O Praise the Lord with Heart and Voice Joseph Haydn The fountain at the front of the sanctuary this morning remains in place from our service last week for All Saints Sunday. The flowing water represents the flow of life from generation to generation. The stones at the base of the fountain were brought forward and placed by our congregation to represent particular loved and remembered ones who have passed on to eternal life.
