Order of Service, August 13, 2017


Prelude: Abraham, Martin and John by John Holler

Welcome, Announcements

Opening Words 

Lighting the Chalice Flame (in unison): We light this chalice, recognizing our connective power and accepting our responsibility to be bold and courageous. Let this light be our symbol as we encourage those within and beyond our walls.

*Hymn #153 Oh, I Woke Up this Morning

Quiet Time, Meditation/Prayer/
Candle Lighting

Responsive Reading: # 508

Offertory: Blue Boat Home by Peter Mayer

Affirmation (in unison) Love is the spirit of this congregation and service is its law. This is our great covenant: to dwell together in peace, to seek the truth in love and to help one another.

*Hymn: #149 Lift Every Voice and Sing

Sermon:       Songs of Protest  Jackie Maye

*Hymn #169 We Shall Overcome

Extinguishing the Chalice Flame (in unison) We extinguish this flame, but not the light of truth, the warmth of community, or the fire of commitment. These we carry in our hearts until we are together again.

Closing Words
