CHILDRENS’ WORSHIP LINKTheme: Balance
Scripture: Deuteronomy 16: 1,9,13
This week, Margie and Lance Shunk from St. Mark's UMC Sacramento welcome and
bless the children; we get to see lots of kids and pastors on vacation; we visit special
events at Taulang-Ū First Tongan UMC in Sacramento; Rev. Dr. Mahsea Evans talks
about "balance;" and Mort gets to dance with Pearl until they fall asleep–watch to the
very end to see that!

 

OPENING PRAYER
God, the more we know you, the more it is that joy dances in our souls.
So, as we open the pages of our family’s history, show yourself in it’s words.
Whisper your love in our ears. Draw us into the embrace of your arms.
Let our hearts beat a little faster, as we hear the sound of your voice so near.
Amen.

PASTORAL PRAYER
OUR LORD’S PRAYER, IN UNISION
Our Father/Mother/Creator, 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.
Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.
Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory, forever. Amen.
