CALLED TO GRATITUDE 

*Hymn of Praise ………………………………………………………………………………………………………….……………………. No. 662 

“The Mission God Has Given” — McGuire/Evans  

The mission God has given, to tell the world of grace, must start by seeing Jesus in every human face.  Each time we feed the hungry or shelter those in need, the love of Christ, our Savior, is present in the deed. 

When acts of true compassion accompany God’s word, the message of salvation is seen as well as heard.  The bounty of our blessings we all must freely share so those who need the Savior will know we really care.  

Our call to share the gospel with people near and far begins with those around us, no matter where we are.  To spread the global message that Jesus is the Way, then we must mirror Jesus in how we live each day.  

*Offertory Sentence 

Offertory — “Something for Thee” …………………………………………………………………………………………… Lowry  

The Morning Prayer 

*The Gloria Patri and Presentation of Offerings 

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost;

Kneels at the feet of His friends, silently washes their feet, Master who acts as a slave to them.

“Come and Feast, for All Are Welcome” — Schultz/Smart  

Come and feast, for all are welcomed at God’s table spread with love.  Come proclaims God’s grace and goodness in, around us, and above.  Come and feast, for all are welcomed at God’s table spread with love.  

Here we nurture and encourage as we share this common meal, while we foster deep communion and our innerselves reveal.  Here we nurture and encourage as we share this common meal.  

See the chalice lifted upward; smell the fragrant, broken bread; taste the gifts from field and vineyard; hear the words that Jesus said:  “Eat and drink, and in remembrance touch your souls with wine and bread.” 

With the Spirit-blessed commission, “Go and serve this meal to all,” take its love and peaceful visions into every banquet hall.  Go and serve as nourished people, gladly feeding one and all!
