Call to Worship

The Lord be with you!

And with your spirit!

May God, the Creator, be with us as we worship!

May Christ, our Redeemer, make us new!

May the Holy Spirit connect us all with God

And with each other!

*Hymn 315 Holy, Holy, Holy

Opening Prayer:  (in unison)

Holy God, Holy One, Holy Three,

We worship You!

You created all that is!  Plants, animals, and people.

Each part important, and connected to the rest.

Forgive us when we forget that we are called

To tend and to care for our planet.

You came to redeem us, and to bring us to God.

Forgive us when we forget that we belong to You,

And that You love all Your people, 

Not just those that  look like us, or act like us.

Holy Spirit, Comforter, Advocate and Friend!

Come to us and rouse us with Your fierce love!

Help us to see with Your eyes,

And to respond with Your heart and love.

Holy  God, Holy One, Holy Three be with us now, 

We pray in the name of Jesus, who taught us to pray together, singing  Our Father    #959

Hello from Camp Menesetung

       I would like to share a few details about our up-coming 'County-Wide United Church Service and Potluck Picnic' taking place at camp on Sunday, June 23rd at 11am .  Clinton United is attending. We look forward to having a number of congregations join us including Goderich and Clinton.  For the outdoor service, our team(Menesetung) will take care of all service/music/children planning and optional activity planning for the picnic, we also have a number of outdoor benches and picnic tables. Guests are asked to bring: Lawn chairs (if desired), something to share for lunch, and a picnic blanket. If it rains we will still go-ahead and move the service into our dining hall.
