THE ANNOUNCEMENTS

THE CALL TO WORSHIP

Leader: Now is the time of harvest; the time when we gather in the bounty
People: We bring before God our bountiful lives.
Leader: Come, offer your praise and thanksgiving to the Lord of the Harvest.
People: We offer our praise to God who blesses our lives with goodness.
Leader: Gather us in, Lord. Gather us in.
People: Let our praise and worship be a tribute to your greatness, O God. AMEN.

*HYMN NO. 546 “We Gather Together”

*PRAYER OF CONFESSION
On this day of Thanksgiving, let us offer our prayers of gratitude for your constant care. As the man who was healed of his leprosy returned to Jesus thanking him for the healing; so help us return to you with our songs and spirits of praise. You have blessed us with work to be done, harvests to be gathered in, and people with whom to share our bounty. We are called to look beyond our laden tables and filled cupboards to those for whom this time is just another day of hunger and loss. Help us to reach out to our friends and neighbors and to those whom we have called strangers. Remind us that the harvest is given to be shared and not hoarded. Open our hearts in actions of gratitude that we may truly offer our praise and thanksgiving to you. AMEN.

*WORDS OF ASSURANCE
We are not alone. No matter how lonely we may feel, God is with us. God’s loving care surrounds each and every one of us. Feel the power of God’s love in you. Be at peace. AMEN.
