Welcome


Call to Worship from Psalm 104:24, 30, 33


Leader:    How manifold are your works, O Lord!

                  In wisdom you have made them all;

                  the earth is full of your creatures.

                  You send forth your spirit, and they are created;

                  and so you renew the face of the earth.

                  I will sing to the Lord as long as I live;

                  I will praise my God while I have my being.


                  Let us worship God – Father, Son, & Holy Spirit – together!



        Oh Rejoice In All Your Works (Psalm 104)


Every mouth that cries for food

Every lung that yearns for breath

Every eye that searches through the dark for light

All creation looks to you

For its breath and for its food

From the goodness of your hand we're satisfied


Oh rejoice in all your works

King of heaven king of earth

Every creature you have made declares your praise

We rejoice in all you've made

God of all-sustaining grace

With the mountain sky and sea we sing your praise


Every tree that thirsts for rain

Every bird that seeks its nest

Every heart that waits in hope to be made glad

All creation looks to you

For its breath and for its food

From the goodness of your hand we're satisfied


Oh rejoice in all your works

King of heaven king of earth

Every creature you have made declares your praise

We rejoice in all you've made

God of all-sustaining grace

With the mountain sky and sea we sing your praise


May the ponderings of my heart

And the song upon my lips

With the chorus of creation join in praise

To the God who made all things

To the Spirit who sustains

To the Son who over all creation reigns


Oh rejoice in all your works

King of heaven king of earth

Every creature you have made declares your praise

We rejoice in all you've made

God of all-sustaining grace

With the mountain sky and sea we sing your praise

Call to Confession Joel 2:12-13


Leader:     “Yet even now, says the LORD,

                  return to me with all your heart,

                  with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning;

                  rend your hearts and not your clothing.

                  Return to the LORD, your God,

                  for the LORD is gracious and merciful,

                  slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love,

                  and relents from punishing.”


                  Trusting in the grace, mercy, and steadfast love of God,

                  let us confess our sin.


Prayer of Confession


Leader:    Spirit of God,

                  you are the breath of creation,

                  the wind of change that blows through our lives,

                  opening us up to new dreams and new hope,

                  new life in Jesus Christ.

                  Forgive us our closed minds,

                  which barricade themselves against new ideas,

                  preferring the past

                  to what you might want to do through us tomorrow.

                  Forgive our closed eyes,

                  which fail to see the needs of your world,

                  blind to opportunities of service and love.

                  Forgive our closed hands,

                  which clutch our gifts and our wealth for our own use alone.

                  Forgive us our closed hearts,

                  which limit our affections to ourselves and our own.

                  Spirit of new life,

                  as we come to you in a moment of silence,

                  forgive us, that we might be open to your love

                  and open for service in your world,

                  through Jesus Christ, our Lord.


Silent Prayers of Confession


Assurance of Forgiveness


Leader:    Friends in Christ, hear the good news:

                  Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

                  By the power in whom we live and move and have our being,

                  I declare to you the forgiveness of all your sins,

                  through the holy Trinity, one God,

                  whose mercy is everlasting.

                  Thanks be to God! Amen.

Our Father who art in heaven,

Give us this day our daily bread;

Scripture           Acts 2:1-13 (NRSV)


1 When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. 2 And suddenly from heaven there came a sound like the rush of a violent wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. 3 Divided tongues, as of fire, appeared among them, and a tongue rested on each of them. 4 All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other languages, as the Spirit gave them ability.


5 Now there were devout Jews from every nation under heaven living in Jerusalem. 6 And at this sound the crowd gathered and was bewildered, because each one heard them speaking in the native language of each. 7 Amazed and astonished, they asked, “Are not all these who are speaking Galileans? 8 And how is it that we hear, each of us, in our own native language? 9 Parthians, Medes, Elamites, and residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, 10 Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya belonging to Cyrene, and visitors from Rome, both Jews and proselytes, 11 Cretans and Arabs—in our own languages we hear them speaking about God’s deeds of power.” 12 All were amazed and perplexed, saying to one another, “What does this mean?” 13 But others sneered and said, “They are filled with new wine.”


Leader:     This is the Word of the Lord.


ALL:         Thanks be to God.


Sermon           “ They Were All Together in One Place”

Prayer

Sending Song


                  Your Labor Is Not In Vain


Your labor is not in vain

Though the ground underneath you

Is cursed and stained

Your planting and reaping are never the same

But your labor is not in vain


Your labor is not unknown

Though the rocks they cry out

And the sea it may groan

The place of your toil may not seem like a home

But your labor is not unknown


For I am with you

I am with you

I am with you

I am with you

For I have called you

Called you by name

Your labor is not in vain


The vineyards you plant will bear fruit

The fields will sing out

And rejoice with the truth

For all that is old will at last be made new

The vineyards you plant will bear fruit


For I am with you

I am with you

I am with you

I am with you

For I have called you

Called you by name

Your labor is not in vain


The houses you labored to build

Will finally with laughter

And joy be filled

The serpent that hurts and destroys shall be killed

And all that is broken be healed


For I am with you

I am with you

I am with you

I am with you

For I have called you

Called you by name

Your labor is not in vain
