Welcome and Announcements
Passing the Peace
Call to Worship
O God, we joyously come together to worship,
realizing we need not summon you into our midst, for you are here.
We need not call you into the secret places of our hearts, for you are there.
We need our eyes of faith to be opened, that we may see you;
our ears to be unstopped, that we may hear you;
our minds to be sensitive, that we may know you;
our hearts to be tender, that we may receive you.
Grant each one a blessing, O Lord,
as each has need, in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

Garden Fresh! – Next year we would like to put cages around the tomato plants. This will make them easier to tend, and pick! Cages cost about $5 each. During the month of September, consider donating so that we can purchase these cages next year! An offering plate will be placed in Memorial Hall.
