Opening Hymn       “Called as Partners in Christ’s Service”    Hymnal #761

  Words by Jane Parker Huber; Music by John Zundel

1)  Called as partners in Christ’s service, called to ministries of grace,

we respond with deep commitment fresh new lines of faith to trace.

May we learn the art of sharing, side by side and friend with friend,

equal partners in our caring to fulfill God’s chosen end.

2)  Christ’s example, Christ’s inspiring, Christ’s clear call to work and worth,

let us follow, never faltering, reconciling folk on earth.

Men and women, richer, poorer, all God’s people, young and old,

blending human skills together gracious gifts from God unfold.

3)  Thus new patterns for Christ’s mission, in a small or global sense,

help us bear each other’s burdens, breaking down each wall or fence.

Words of comfort, words of vision, words of challenge, said with care,

bring new power and strength for action, make us colleagues, free and fair.

4)  So God grant us for tomorrow ways to order human life

that surround each person’s sorrow with a calm that conquers strife.

Make us partners in our living, our compassion to increase,

messengers of faith, thus giving hope and confidence and peace.

            What Kind of ‘Church’ Do You Want?

Closing Hymn     “Together We Serve”    Hymnal #767

        Words and Music by Daniel Charles Damon

1)  Together we serve, united by love,

inviting God’s world to the glorious feast.

We work and we pray through sorrow and joy,

extending God’s love to the last and the least.

2)  We seek to become a beacon of hope,

a lamp for the heart and a light for the feet.

We learn, year by year, to let love shine through

until we see Christ in each person we meet.

3)  We welcome the scarred, the wealthy, the poor,

the busy, the lonely, and all who need care.

We offer a home to those who will come,

our hands quick to help, our hearts ready to dare.

4)  Together, by grace, we witness and work,

remembering Jesus, in whom we grow strong.

Together we serve in Spirit and truth,

remembering love is the strength of our song.
