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:

Sometimes we feel too small and insignificant to be of any notice to Jesus.
Yet the Lord provides a tree for us to climb so that we can see Jesus.
That tree is faithfulness, compassion, love, hope, joy.
We are given the opportunity to witness to the Savior’s presence in our lives.
Lord, help us when we forget how much we are loved by Christ.
Open our hearts to receive his invitation this day. AMEN.

Opening Prayer

Lord God of love and peace, open our hearts today to receive the invitation of Jesus to come and be present in our lives. Release us from our smallness and create an atmosphere of confession and healing love in our hearts and our spirits. For we ask these things in Jesus’ Name, AMEN.
