HYMN: VU # 563 Jesus, You Have Come To The Lakeshore

OPENING PRAYER (In Unison)
Creator God, we gather in your presence. Your creation is witnessing our fellowship. We thank you for the gift of the sun and the moon for our light, trees for our breath, food and protection. We give thanks for the water, to water our thirst and that of the creation, for the harvest of the ocean and means of transport. For all the galaxies in the space, the flora and fauna, day and night, the beauty of their differences. We give thanks. All these manifest your healing and renewing presence. We ask that we be faithful in our duties as your nature does. May we be caring as the rains do to the living things, the sun to the winter-stricken trees, and moon to a dark night. As we worship, bless us, O God; In the name of Jesus, our Lord. Amen

Take the fellowship spirit of Jesus; feed one another round the campfire. From this place, let us go out empowered to serve. To serve our neighbor, save creation and life of all kinds. We go to create wider circles, where all are welcome, fed and sent to serve. We go out to live in peace with the forest, the ocean, the birds, skies and the stranger. We go out to live in community with the whole creation, as they all witness to the creative power of God. Amen.

BENEDICTION: Minister

God’s Not Dead

Chorus: God’s not dead, He is alive,
God’s not dead, He is alive,
God’s not dead, He is alive,
I can feel him all over me!

I can feel Him in my hands (clap clap)
I can feel Him in my feet (stomp stomp)
I can feel Him in the church (fold hands in prayer)
Or walking down the street (walk in place)
I can feel Him in the air (hands in the air)
I can feel Him everywhere (wave hands in the air)
I can feel Him all over me (wave hands down yourself)
But ….. no no no no
No no no no!!!! Chorus

He’s Got The Whole World In His Hands

He’s got the whole world in his hands,
He’s got the whole wide world in his hands,
He’s got the whole wide world in his hands,
He’s got the whole world in his hands.

He’s got the little bitty baby in his hands,
He’s got the little bitty baby in his hands,
He’s got the little bitty baby in his hands,
He’s got the whole world in his hands.

He’s got you and me, brother, in his hands,
He’s got you and me, sister, in his hands,
He’s got you and me, brother, in his hands,
He’s got the whole world in his hands.
