Refrain: Christ be our light! Shine in our hearts. Shine through the darkness. 

Christ, be our light! Shine in your church gathered today. 

2. Longing for peace, our world is troubled. Longing for hope, many despair. Your word alone has power to save us. Make us your living voice. (Refrain) 

3. Longing for food, many are hungry. Longing for water, many still thirst. Make us your bread, broken for others, shared until all are fed. (Refrain) 

4. Longing for shelter, many are homeless. Longing for warmth, many are cold. Make us your building, sheltering others, walls made of living stone. (Refrain) 

5. Many the gifts, many the people, many the hearts that yearn to belong. Let us be servants to one another signs of your kingdom come. (Refrain)

Sermon 

(Please Stand) 

Hymn #689 “Praise and Thanksgiving” 

1. Praise and thanksgiving, God, we would offer for all things living, you have made good: harvest of sown fields, fruits of the orchard, hay from the mown fields, blossom and wood. 

2. God, bless the labor we bring to serve you, that with our neighbor we may be fed. Sowing or tilling, we would work with you, harvesting, milling for daily bread. 

3. Father, providing food for your children, by Wisdom’s guiding teach us to share one with another, so that, rejoicing with us, all others may know your care. 

4. Then will your blessing reach every people, freely confessing your gracious hand. Where you are reigning, no one will hunger; your love sustaining showers the land. 

 

L: With the whole church, let us confess our faith: 

All: I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth. 

I believe in Jesus Christ, 

God’s only Son, our Lord, 

Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, 

born of the virgin Mary, 

suffered under Pontius Pilate, 

was crucified, died, and was buried; 

He descended to the dead. 

On the third day he rose again. 

He ascended into heaven, 

He is seated at the right hand of the Father, 

And he will come to judge the living and the dead. 

I believe in the Holy Spirit, 

the holy catholic Church, 

the communion of saints, 

the forgiveness of sins, 

the resurrection of the body, 

and the life everlasting. Amen. 

The Prayers 

L: . . .Lord, in your mercy, 

C: Hear our prayer. 

Offering Hymn # 692 “We Are an Offering” 

We lift our voices, we lift our hands, we lift our lives up to you: we are an offering. Lord, use our voice, Lord, use our hands, Lord, use our lives, they are yours: we are an offering. All that we have, all that we are, all that we hope to be, we give to you, we give to you. We lift our voices, we lift our hands, we lift our lives up to you: we are an offering, we are an offering. 

Let us pray: 

O God, you have called your servants to ventures of which we cannot see the ending, by paths as yet untrodden, through perils unknown. Give us faith to go out with good courage, not knowing where we go, but only that your hand is leading us and your love supporting us; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen 

 

Gathered into one by the Holy Spirit, let us pray as Jesus taught us: 

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 and ever. Amen

Blessing 

Hymn #693 “Come, Ye Thankful People, Come” 

1. Come, ye thankful people, come; raise the song of harvest home. All be safely gathered in ere the winter storms begin. God, our maker, doth provide for our wants to be supplied. Come to God’s own temple, come, raise the song of harvest home. 

2. All the world is God’s own field, fruit unto his praise to yield; wheat and tares together sown, unto joy or sorrow grown. First the blade, and then the ear, then the full corn shall appear. Lord of harvest, grant that we wholesome grain and pure may be. 

3. For the Lord our God shall come and shall take his harvest home; from his field shall in that day all offenses purge away; give his angels charge at last in the fire the tares to cast, but the fruitful ears to store in his garner evermore. 

4. Even so, Lord, quickly come to thy final harvest home. Gather then thy peo-ple in, free from sorrow, free from sin, there, forever purified, in thy garner to abide. Come, with all thine angels, come, raise the glorious harvest home! 

 

L: Go in peace. Serve the Lord. 

C: Thanks be to God.
