Kintail Kick off and Commissioning
National Ice Cream Day, Giant Banana Split!
Invitation to Worship: by Bruce Prewer
Leader: Let us start this service well, by reminding ourselves:that it is not we who chose Christ,
All: but Christ who chose us,
Leader: That we are not here because of our goodness
All: but because of Christ’s grace,
Leader: That we are not here to enlighten ourselves,
All: but to allow Christ to enlighten us,
Leader: That we have not come to be entertained
All: but to worship God with heart, soul, mind and strength.
Scripture: Luke 5:27-31
Message: Jesus at a Party
Lord, we come to you, broken and unhealthy and you offer to us wholeness. We set ourselves up to judge others, and you offer us grace. We are filled with our sin, clinging to it, and you offer us forgiveness. We look to ourselves for mercy but in YOUR mercy, you offer yourself. We pray in the words of the one who came to teach, love and forgive, “Our Father…”
