Candle lighting

Call to Worship
The Lord be with you!
And also with you!
Make a joyful noise to praise our God!
We come together in thankfulness and praise!

*Hymn  516   Come, Ye Thankful People, Come

Opening Prayer:  (in unison)
Thank You, loving God!
As children, we were taught always to say “thank you”.
As adults, we remember to thank people
Who hold doors for us, or who bring us a coffee.
We will thank those who created our thanksgiving feast,
But will we remember to thank the farmers who grew it?
Will we remember to thank You,
for the sun, and the rain in their turn?
You, who caused the food to grow,
and to ripen, that it might be harvested?
Thank You, loving God, for all You give to us!
We pray in the Name of Your Son, Jesus,
Who taught us to pray together singing, Our Father
