Words of Welcome
Call to Worship Ed Bugg
L: God of the ages, we sing your praises in the vineyards of our lives.
P: Tend the garden of our love.
L: Where we have become ragged and wild, prune us in the way we
should grow.
P: Nurture the soil of our hope.
L: Let your hand be upon us, leading us to Jesus, the perfecter of our
faith.
P: Heal the roots of our faith. Bring us rain in drought, shade in
scorching heat, and protection in the wilderness.
All: Lord of the vineyard, guide us as we worship. Help us to grow
in your ways. Amen.

Lord of heaven and earth, please receive these gifts as signs of our devotion to you! Where there is division, help us to follow you. Even when others may turn away and seek to hide from the tough challenges, help us hold fast to the confession we make once more: we are disciples of Christ. We are followers on the Way of love. Thanks be to God! Amen.
