A caution regarding Prayers of the People online: Folks gathered in-person often recount a lot of detail in their prayers concerning other members or family (“Elderly Name, living alone, experiencing isolation…”). In a private, in-person gathering, this information may be safe, but online, it can expose vulnerable people to harm, since we can’t control who will join the gathering or access it later online. Please contact the Pastor directly by text or phone with prayer requests. Pastor Nathan will be prudent in offering prayers i.e. “For First name only, in need of healing”; “For First name only, comfort in grief” etc. Please contact the pastor directly with news of those needing extra pastoral care.

Responsive Intent

One: On our pilgrimage of faith, in a changing and uncertain world –
All: we do not walk alone: the Lord is with us.
One: We remember all those who taught us faith –
All: that cloud of martyrs whose example burns bright in our memory.
One: God of grace, by whose love the world exists –
All: show us your face once again and reveal to us your glory.

Prayers of the People and Lord’s Prayer
Our Mother-Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom 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 kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever.

Invitation to the Meal

One: The invitation is simple: come and eat of the feast. Not a meal to nourish the body, but to feed the soul.
All: We receive the bread and wine connected to the ages: to the saint of old who felt unworthy, to the seeker eager to know God, to the teenager who wonders what it’s all about, to the child who eats with unburdened faith.
One: Woven into this time, the hopes and tears of generations. There is great joy here.
All: No one is turned away for God is the host!

Pastor: God is in this place.
People: And in our hearts.
Pastor: Open yourself to the nudging God.
People: We feel the breath of the Spirit.
Pastor: Remember God made flesh.
People: Jesus, who taught us a new way.
Pastor: Tender, transforming God, you have invited us to gather at this table,
To taste the feast, the same abundant promises offered to our ancestors in faith. Time and time again you’ve offered your grace, Even as we have stepped away, You continue to call us to be your people. You have never left us. We praise you for second, third, and fourth chances. You are ever-patient, always faithful. We give thanks for this time of celebration. For the One this meal remembers. For the life, ministry, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. With those who have gone before us, Whose hands touched the bread, Whose lips embraced the cup, We worship you. We glorify you.

And we remember all those who have gone before us.
This is the mystery of our faith:
ALL: Christ has died. Christ is risen. Christ comes again.

Breaking Bread and Pouring Cup
Gathered with his friends, Jesus took bread, broke it and said:
“This is my body, broken for you. Take and eat.” And pouring the wine:
“This is my blood, spilled out for you. Do this in remembrance of me.”

Prayer for the Holy Spirit
God of all, send your Spirit to this place so that those gathered here, in this sacred moment, may know your presence.
As we eat the bread and drink of the cup, make us one with the saints, and with our sisters, siblings and brothers in faith around the world. Be with us God, not only here but in every moment of our lives. Help us To know you, To be guided by the Holy Spirit, And to live Christ. Now and forever. Amen.

Call to the Meal
This is the feast prepared for you. Come and share, for all is ready.

Sharing the Bread and Cup
Process outdoors. Pick up a communion pack. And wait for all so we eat together please.
As we go, we sing: Praise the Lord Together Singing Alleluia!

Pastor: The Body of Christ, broken for you and for all. The cup of blessing, the new life Christ brings.

Prayer of Thanksgiving
Creative, connecting God, you have sent your Spirit and made us the body of Christ; From child-like faith, to youthful energy, from middle-aged mindfulness, to elder’s wisdom. We thank you for this time, this remembrance.

One: Increase our faith.
All: Boldly!
One: Help us to love.
All: Boldly!
One: Encourage us to act.
All: Boldly!
One: In the name of Jesus Christ we pray.
All: Amen.
