Joys and Concerns Preparing To Pray No. 177 (sing twice) Pastoral Prayer and The Lord’s Prayer
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever. Amen.

* UNISON PRAYER Creator God, we worship and adore you - source of all wisdom. We pray today that our understanding of your holy wisdom may be deepened. O God - grant that such wisdom flow into our lives that we may begin to see the world and everything in it through your eyes, that we may begin to know what it is to be shaped by Jesus’ wisdom: when the last will be first; where the meek rather than the mighty will inherit the earth; where we who lose our lives for the sake of Jesus will find them and where we who take up our cross to follow him find it is the wisest thing we ever do. This we pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
(Moira B. Laidlaw)

AN ORDER OF FAREWELL TO CHURCH MEMBERS Pastor: The church is a family. United by the common recognition of Jesus Christ as our Savior, we are all brothers and sisters. And, for a time, Cassidy United Methodist Church is our home. Like every human family, our church family is formed and reformed over time: as members are born, as they die, as members are adopted into our family, and as they leave our congregation for a new home, in a different place. For a time, Ken and Judith Nelson have lived with us. We have shared with each other good times and bad, we have shared each other's joys and sorrows, we have lightened each other's heavy loads. Together we have laughed and cried, together we have worshiped and praised God, together we have lived. People: We feel sorrow in your leaving, yet we rejoice with you in anticipation of this new phase of your life. We will miss your love and support, yet we know you will add much to the lives of those who will be your new church family, as you have added much to our lives. All: We will pray for you and for the whole family of God. Pastor: Let us pray: O God, you are the strength and the protector of your people. We humbly place in your hands members of this congregation, Ken and Judith, who are about to leave us. Keep and preserve them, O Lord, in all health and safety, both of body and soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
