A number of Bible readings and a sermon forms the first major part of our worship. After the sermon we offer our prayers for the world and the church, for the poor and the lonely, and for the sick and dying.
The worship continues with the shared greeting: "Peace be with you." In this greeting we take up the work of binding diverse nations and cultures into one community of hope. In the Peace we share not only a warm greeting, but also reconciliation and forgiveness.
After the Peace, Eucharist or Holy Communion unfolds every Sunday morning. Through it, we pray that God will bind the scattered people back into one. This shared meal reminds us who we are. It strengthens us and renews us for the coming week.
Now we are ready to go into the world - our homes and our work places - to be people who make a positive difference, no matter how small, in the lives of others.
Hearing The Words
|With Whole Heart
Serving those too infirm to come up to the altar.
In our liturgy, Eucharist is preluded by Great Thanksgiving, a short responsive prayer in which the leader calls upon the congregation to lift up our hearts and offer thanks and praises to God.
