Land Acknowledgement

“As we gather together, let us pause to remember that we live, work, and worship on lands that are, by law, the un-ceded territories of the nations of Treaty 7. As Christ’s people, may we be people of love, of truth, and of reconciliation. May we live with respect on this land, and in peace and friendship with its people.”

Call to Worship

Praise be to God who is unchanging!

Thanks be to God who is continually creating newness and hope.

Each day we are greeted by new opportunities and challenges.

Each day we are given courage and strength to accomplish God’s tasks.

Let all God’s people shout praises to the heavens!

Great is our God and greatly to be praised! AMEN.

Opening Prayer

Our loving and caring God, we need this time together to be united with our sisters and brothers in the faith; we need this time of worship to be comforted and strengthened in your presence. We hear of wars and rumors of wars. We read of persecution and oppression. Remind us again of your vision, that all might live in a world of peace and justice and love. May this time together imprint this vision and promise on our hearts,
that we may live into this beloved community. Amen.
