Gathering in Praise

Welcome and Announcements

Call to Worship: from the Psalter (Psalm 100):
On your feet now- applaud God! Bring a gift of laughter, sing yourselves into God’s presence. Know this: God is God, and God, God. God made us; we didn’t make God, We’re his people, God’s well-tended sheep. Enter with the password: “Thank you!” Make yourselves at home, talking praise. Thank God, Worship God. For God is sheer beauty, all-generous in love, loyal always and ever. (from the Message Translation)

Serving Christ at Home and in the World

Closing Prayer: 

Alpha and Omega, Source of Our Being, Almighty God, we go out in the name of Christ to serve the least of these. Help us to recognize our own prejudices, our own judgment of others, our own biases. May we see others truly as being made in your image. May we serve with open hearts and be a light to those we encounter. Our prayer is in the name of your Son, our Savior, Jesus the Christ. Amen.

Benediction Rev. Ed

November 22, 2020

                                    Rev. Jim Anderson is beginning a new
                                    Bible Study on the last week of 11/ 20. 
                                    The study will use a new book:
                                     FROM ADVENT TO ASCENSION: A
                                     JOURNEY WITH JESUS, and will
                                     continue for half of 2021. Members and
                                     friends of all three of our Cooperative
                                     Parish are invited to participate. The 
                                     plan is to meet one hour per week at a
                                     time convenient to participants on
                                     Zoom.com as long as the Covid-19
                                     restrictions are required. The book features daily Scripture readings from the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John that are woven into a chronological account of Jesus' life and ministry. It also includes articles, hymns, and some 500 illustrations of Jesus' life on the stamps of the world that shed light on the background and meaning of the readings.

Books are available at a special price of $20 through the author. Those interested should make contact with Rev. Anderson at 985-8823 or revjima@yahoo.com if they have questions or send $20 through the church office.
