Now is the time to worship! Invitation to Be Peacemakers Rev. Matt Franks Hymn: God, We Love This Congregation! Tune: Ludwig van Beethoven, 1824 ("Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee") Text: Copyright © 2021 by Carolyn Winfrey Gillette.

God, we love this congregation! On this day, we're glad to see friends and neighbors, gathered, praying, as a church community. Young and old, we join in worship — some in-person, some online. We are drawn by faith and friendship to this blessed place and time. In this year with all its trials, there are things that we have missed. Still, in Christ, you've walked beside us; by your Spirit, we've been blessed. Love's our history, love's our vision, Love's the work we're called to do. Bless us as our congregation moves together, serving you.

We Offer Our Prayers Together The Prayer of Saint Francis. UMH 481 Liturgist All: Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace; where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; and where there is sadness, joy. O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood, as to understand; to be loved, as to love; for it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Hymn: Sweet Hour of Prayer TFWS 2176

1. Sweet hour of prayer! sweet hour of prayer! that calls me from a world of care, and bids me at my Father's throne make all my wants and wishes known. In seasons of distress and grief, my soul has often found relief, and oft escaped the tempter's snare by thy return, sweet hour of prayer! 2. Sweet hour of prayer! sweet hour of prayer! the joys I feel, the bliss I share of those whose anxious spirits burn with strong desires for thy return! With such I hasten to the place where God my Savior shows his face, and gladly take my station there, and wait for thee, sweet hour of prayer! 3. Sweet hour of prayer! sweet hour of prayer! thy wings shall my petition bear to him whose truth and faithfulness engage the waiting soul to bless. And since he bids me seek his face, believe his word, and trust his grace, I'll cast on him my every care, and wait for thee, sweet hour of prayer!

Today we pray for…. Rev. Matt Franks

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.

The Ushers will Exit the congregation during the Postlude



We are planning two service projects for Help in Crisis, our local women’s and children's domestic abuse shelter. The first event is Tuesday, June 1st at 10 am in the Atrium, where we will bring kitchen utensils and supplies such as silverware, pots, and pans, cooking spatulas and spoons, etc. Some of the items will stay with the shelter and some will go with the women when they leave.

On Tuesday, July 13th we will meet again to collect cleaning supplies such as buckets, detergent, bleach, mops, brooms, and cleaning rags. Everyone is welcome to participate in this project and is invited for lunch afterward at a local restaurant.
