*Call to Worship                                                                    

One:       From shore to shore –

All:         Let God's praise be sung.

One:       From mountains high to valleys low –

All:         Let the echo of praise resound.

One:       From the mouths of children and the prayers of the saints –

All:         Let thanksgiving abound.

One:       For great is our God

All:         And greatly to be praised.


*Hymn of Praise     America the Beautiful”             UMH #696           


 Opening Prayer 

Creator and Ruler of humankind: While songs of our nation's birth ring in our hearts, remind us to celebrate above all the oneness of all the people you have created and the openness of the church you have loved. Help us, who are your church in this place, to be truly open to all your children and to pray for the coming of the day when all shall be one in him who has broken down all the walls that now divide us, even Jesus Christ, the Lord of both church and world. Amen.

Morning Prayer and Lord’s Prayer

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,

the power, and the glory, forever and ever. Amen.
