Call to Worship: Inspired by Joel 2:28-29 and written by Katherine Hawker

One: Blessed be God - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit ☩

Many: And blessed be his Kingdom, now and forever. One: Then I will pour out my spirit on all flesh,

thus says the Lord.

Many: Send down the fire of your justice!

One: Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,

Many: Send down the rain of your love!

One: Your old shall dream dreams,

and your young shall see visions.

Many: Send down your Spirit,

breathe life in your people!

One: In those days, I will pour out my spirit.

Many: And we shall be people of God.

One: Come, let us worship.

Collect: Almighty and everlasting God, increase in us the gifts of faith, hope, and charity; and, that we may obtain what you promise, make us love what you command; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen. Liturgy of the Table: (Adapted From Lift Up Your Hearts: Year C, OSL Publications) One: The Lord be with you. Many: And also with you. One: Lift up your hearts. Many: We lift them up to the Lord One: Let us give thanks to the Lord our God. Many: It is right to give our thanks and praise. One: It is right, and a good and joyful thing. Always and everywhere to give thanks to you, Almighty God, Creator of heaven and earth who gives us strength.

. Many: Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might, heaven and earth are full of your glory Hosanna in the highest. Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest. One: Holy are you, and blessed is your Son, Jesus Christ, who has mercy on us. Your Spirit anointed him to preach the good news to the poor, to proclaim release to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, and to announce that the time had come when you would save your people. He healed the sick, fed the hungry, and ate with sinners. By the baptism of his suffering, death, and resurrection, you gave birth to your church, delivered us from slavery of sin and death, and made with us a new covenant by water and the Spirit. On the night in which he gave himself up for us, he took bread, gave thanks, broke it, and gave it to his disciples.
