THANKSGIVING SUNDAY

Gathering and Conversation Sharing the Joys and Concerns of the Congregation Prelude Introit: ……………............................................................ “Fill the Earth with Praise” *Call to Worship: ……………………………………………………… O God, be gracious to us and bless us AND MAKE YOUR FACE TO SHINE UPON US, that your way may be known on the earth, AND YOUR SAVING POWER AMONG ALL NATIONS. Let the peoples praise you, O God; LET ALL THE PEOPLES PRAISE YOU! The earth has yielded its increase; GOD, OUR GOD, HAS BLESSED US. Let the peoples praise you, O God;

from Psalm 67

*Hymn: …..……..................................................... “We Gather Together” (UMH 131)


Congregational Prayer: LORD, WE COME BEFORE YOU CONFESSING THAT WE HAVE NOT ALWAYS BEEN THANKFUL. IT IS SOMETIMES DIFFICULT TO GIVE YOU PRAISE AND THANKSGIVING, SO WE HAVE NOT ALWAYS TRIED. IT IS EASIER TO FEEL SORRY FOR OURSELVES WHEN THINGS DO NOT GO AS WE WISH. HELP US TO BE WILLING TO COUNT OUR BLESSINGS RATHER THAN OUR COMPLAINTS. HELP US TO BE EVER THANKFUL TO YOU AS OUR CREATOR – FOR YOU MADE US; TO YOU AS OUR REDEEMER – FOR YOU DIED FOR US; AND TO YOU AS OUR SUSTAINER – FOR YOU ARE ALWAYS WITH US. PRAISES BE TO YOU, O MOST HIGH. WE PRAY IN JESUS’ NAME. Silent Prayers Morning Prayer The Lord’s Prayer ………………………………………………………….

SERVE THE LORD WITH GLADNESS! Come into God’s presence with singing! KNOW THAT THE LORD, WHO M ADE US, IS GOD. We are the Lord’s; WE ARE THE PEOPLE OF GOD, THE SHEEP OF GOD’S PASTURE. Enter God’s gates with thanksgiving, AND GOD’S COURTS WITH PRAISE! Give thanks and bless God’s name! FOR THE LORD IS GOOD; God’s steadfast love endures for ever; GOD’S FAITHFULNESS TO ALL GENERATIONS. *Gloria Patri: ………………………………….

*Hymn: ……………………………. “Come, Ye Thankful People, Come” (UMH #694) Message: …………………… “You Shall Rejoice in the Good Things” (Rev. Snyder) Offertory *Doxology: ………………………. “Praise God from Whom All Blessings” UMH #95 *Congregational Prayer of Commitment: IN OUR POVERTY, YOU HAVE COME TO US, GREAT AND MIGHTY GOD. WHEN OUR SPIRITS ARE CRUSHED BY THE HARSH REALITIES OF A SINFUL WORLD, YOU RESTORE OUR HOPE. WHEN WE THINK WE HAVE NOTHING TO GIVE, YOU SHOWER US WITH RICHES BEYOND OUR IMAGINING. SO NOW, WITH JOY, WE RECLAIM GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT AS WE DEDICATE THE GIFTS OF OUR HANDS. ALL THAT WE HAVE AND ALL THAT WE ARE HAVE BECOME YOURS ALREADY. WE BRING THESE OFFERINGS BEFORE YOU BECAUSE WE NEED TO GIVE IN ORDER TO LIVE FULLY THE LIFE YOU GRANT TO US. AMEN *Hymn: ………………………………………………… “Now Thank We All Our God” *Benediction *Benediction Response: ……………………………. #213)
