*Hymn #3152 from Worship and Song “Welcome” Laurie Zelman and Mark Miller
*Call to Worship: We are people of God, created to love. We will love the Lord our God with heart, soul, mind and strength. We are people of God determined to love. We will love our neighbors and treat them as we would be treated. We love neither from a sense of obligation nor to gain popularity or favor. We choose to love both the lovely and the unlovable because love imi-tates God's nature. All: For the whole law is summed up in a single commandment, "You shall love your neighbor as yourself." (Based on Mark 12:28-34, Galatians 5:14)
*Offertory Prayer: Leader: For the gift of unconditional love, People: we give thanks. Leader: For the way in which these offerings will become gifts of love em-bodied, People: we give thanks. Leader: For the gift of this community bound and working together, People: we give thanks.
