WELCOME TO Monroeville United Church of Christ
Welcome & Prelude
One: Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth.
All: Worship God with gladness; come into God’s presence with singing.
One: Know that the LORD is God. It is God that made us,
and we are God’s people, the sheep of God’s pasture.
All: Enter these gates with thanksgiving, and praise.
Give thanks to God and bless God’s name.
One: For the LORD is good; God’s steadfast love endures forever,
God’s faithfulness is to all generations.
Scripture Romans 12:1-2
Hymn We Gather Together
1. We gather together to ask for God’s blessing,
To live in community, seeking God’s will.
We come now, as sisters and brothers, confessing,
The sins that divide and the wrong in us still.
2. Beside us, forgiving, enabling, sustaining,
You call us, O Savior, to life that is new.
You draw us away from self-centered complaining,
You lead us and guide us in ways that are true.
3. All praise to the Spirit, provider, defender,
You offer us freedom, to follow or stray.
Empowering all by the hope you engender.
Grant wisdom and courage to follow your way.
Time of Prayer
The Lord’s Prayer
Our Father, who is in heaven, hallowed be your name.
Your Kingdom come, your 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.
Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.
For yours is the kingdom & the power & the glory forever. Amen.
Mission Focus: Open and Affirming Coalition of the UCC
