Opening Hymn:  #453 Living Lord of Love’s Dominion
Living Lord of Love's dominion, 
sovereign Savior, bless you Church 
call us still as you disciples- 
loving, serving, while we search.
Gathered: feed our deepest being 
prophet's truth and godly nerve;
scattered: let our lives' fruition 
nourish others while we serve.

Visit towns and inner cities, 
penetrate our steel and stone
with a  love that melt our coldness, 
making mission here our own.
We will seek you, love transfigured, 
in our neighbor's need until 
deep with in our daily service 
love draws forth our utmost skill.

With your bread, your wine, your Spirit, 
nurture, us for your intent;
let your will be our vocation 
lived as song and sacrament.
May compassion lead to service 
till we join the saints above;
grant us hope for each tomorrow; 
fill our faith with vibrant love!

Call to Worship 
Sing praises to God, you faithful, give thanks to God’s holy name! 
Weeping may linger for a night, but joy comes in the morning. 
God turns our weeping to dancing and clothes us in gladness. 
May we praise God & not be silent! Thanks to you O God, forever!

Gospel Hymn:  #519 The Lord Is My Shepherd
The Lord’s my shepherd, I’ll not want.
He makes me down to lie
in pastures green; he leadeth me
the quiet waters by.

My soul he doth restore again,
and me to walk doth make
within the paths of righteousness,
even for his own name’s sake.

Yea, though I walk in death’s dark vale,
yet will I fear no ill,
for thou art with me and thy rod
and staff me comfort still.

My table thou hast furnished
in presence of my foes.
My head thou dost with oil anoint,
and my cup overflows.

Goodness and mercy all my life
shall surely follow me,
and in God’s house forevermore
my dwelling place shall be.

The Gospel:    MARK 6:30-34, 53-56

The Celebration of the Eucharist 

Offertory Hymn: #59 Jesus Call’s Us Here to Meet Him
Jesus calls us here to meet him
as, through word and song and prayer,
we affirm God’s promised presence
where his people live and care.
Praise the God who keeps his promise;
praise the Son who calls us friends;
praise the Spirit who, among us,
to our hopes and fears attends.

Jesus calls us to confess him
Word of life and Lord of all,
sharer of our flesh and frailness,
saving all who fail or fall.
Tell his holy human story;
tell his tales that all may hear;
tell the world that Christ in glory
came to earth to meet us here.
Jesus calls us to each other,
found in him are no divides.
Race and class, and sex and language --
such are barriers he derides.
Join the hand of friend and stranger;
join the hand of age and youth;
join the faithful and the doubter
in their common search for truth.

Jesus calls us to his table
rooted firm in time and space,
where the church in earth and heaven
finds a common meeting place.
Share the bread and wine, his body;
share the love of which we sing;
share the feast for saints and sinners 
hosted by our Lord and King.

Closing Hymn: #619 Fairest Lord Jesus
Fairest Lord Jesus, 
ruler of all nature, 
O thou of Godhead’s human son, 
Thee will I cherish, 
Thee will I honor, 
thou, my soul's glory, joy, and crown.

Fair are the meadows, 
fairer still the woodlands, 
robed in the blooming garb of spring: 
Jesus is fairer, 
Jesus is purer 
who makes the troubled heart to sing.

Fair is the sunshine, 
fairer still the moonlight, 
and fair the twinkling starry host: 
Jesus shines brighter, 
Jesus shines purer 
than all the angels heaven can boast.

All fairest beauty,
heavenly and earthly,
wondrously, Jesus, is found in thee;
non can be nearer,
fairer, or dearer
then thou, my Saviour, art to me.
