Song Come Now Is The Time To Worship
Call to Worship
Worship Assistant: Come, Lord Jesus, be our Guest
People: May our lives by you be blessed.
We honor the Indigenous people on whose traditional and ancestral homelands our church stands: the Cowlitz, the Chinook, the Grand Ronde, the Yakama peoples, and others who lived here.
We acknowledge the ancestors of this place and recognize that we are here because of the sacrifices forced on them.
In remembering these communities, we honor their legacy, their lives, and their descendants. We strive to continue their stewardship of the land in our own stewardship.
O God, our bread, our milk, and our honey:
In the resurrection of your Son you have brought us to your table.
Feed us with your plenty, and enlarge our table for all the hungry,
through Christ our Lord. Amen. Alleluia!

Young disciple’s Moment
SONG O Lord, You’re Beautiful
Presentation of Offerings
As they came near the village to which they were going, he walked ahead as if he were going on. But they urged him strongly, saying, “Stay with us, because it is almost evening and the day is now nearly over.” So he went in to stay with them. When he was at the table with them, he took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to them. Then their eyes were opened, and they recognized him; and he vanished from their sight. They said to each other, “Were not our hearts burning within us while he was talking to us on the road, while he was opening the scriptures to us?” That same hour they got up and returned to Jerusalem; and they found the eleven and their companions gathered together. They were saying, “The Lord has risen indeed, and he has appeared to Simon!” Then they told what had happened on the road, and how he had been made known to them in the breaking of the bread.
Message: Hospitality Is A Risky Business
The Lord be with you.
AND ALSO WITH YOU.
Lift up your hearts.
WE LIFT THEM UP TO THE LORD.
Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.
IT IS RIGHT TO GIVE OUR THANKS AND PRAISE.
