Call to Worship

Leader: After Jesus’ death and resurrection he called the eleven to a mountaintop in Galilee and they went.

People: Let us be attentive to the voice of Jesus’ ways and bravely go when called.

Leader: Once the eleven saw Jesus they doubted.

People: Let us forgive ourselves when we doubt, and remain open to understanding as we encounter Jesus’ teachings and ways.

Leader: As they gathered, Jesus charged the eleven to GO to ALL people. He instructed them to build community with ALL people, be willing to touch ALL people, and be willing to minister to ALL people.

People: Let us bravely Go to All people, especially those our society often tries to ignore.

Leader: Jesus instructed the eleven to use their voice, their stories, and their authentic truth as a witness to those whom they ministered.

All: Let us bravely live, work, and GO in authenticity as we do the work of connecting people with the Love we have come to know in the words and ways of Jesus. Let us worship.

Opening Hymn     “Part of the Family”               Handout

      Words and Music by Jim Manley

          1984.  James K. Manley.  All rights reserved (ASCAP).

Refrain:   Come in, come in and sit down    You are a part of the fam’ly.

  We are lost and we are found, and we are a part of the fam’ly.

1)  You know the reason why you came    Yet no reason can explain,

So share in the laughter and cry in the pain    For we are a part of the fam’ly.

God is with us in this place   Like a mother’s warm embrace,

We’re all forgiven by God’s grace    For we are a part of the fam’ly. Refrain

2)  Children and elders, middlers and teens,  Singles and doubles and in-betweens,

Strong eighty fivers and streetwise sixteens,  We are a part of the fam’ly.

Greeters and shoppers, long time and new,  Nobody here has a claim on a pew.

And whether we’re many or only a few   We are a part of the fam’ly. Refrain

3)  There’s life to be shared in the bread and the wine, We are the branches, Christ is the vine,

This is God’s temple, it’s not yours or mine   But we are a part of the fam’ly.

There’s rest for the weary, and health for us all, There’s a yoke that is easy and a burden that’s


So come in and worship and answer the call    For we are a part of the fam’ly. Refrain

Scripture Reading  Matthew 28:16-20

Sermon         “The Trinity? Really?”            Dr. Keith Ray

Question to ponder: What value does the Christian doctrine of the Trinity

have for our community today?

Prayers of the People

Closing Hymn/ Offertory       “Called as Partners in Christ’s Service”  Hymnal #761     

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.



Shalom   (“May you be well and whole and in communion with all creation.”)

        Shalom, my friends, Shalom, my friends, Shalom, Shalom.

       Till we meet again, Till we meet again, Shalom, Shalom
