*Responsive Intent
Rejoice and be glad for God takes delight in us.

Sing to God a new song.
We gather as God’s singing community.
Come and hear God’s good news.
We gather as God’s listening community ready to hear news of Christ’s love.
Even when only two or three are gathered, Christ is here in our midst.

With dance and melody, praise and prayer, let us worship God who is among us in this place!

Morning Prayer Concerns and Celebrations

Prayers of the People and Lord’s Prayer
Our Mother-Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.
Thy kin-dom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kin-dom, and the power, and the glory, forever.
