“Trinity United Church is an inclusive and welcoming community that nurtures love of God, respects creation, seeks justice and serves others.”

We acknowledge that the land upon which we gather is unceded Mi’kmaq territory. Epekwitk (Prince Edward Island) is covered by the historic Treaties of Peace and Friendship. We pay our respects to the Indigenous Mi’kmaq People who have occupied this Island for over 12,000 years; past, present and future.

Child of blessing, child of promise

Baptized with the Spirit’s sign

With this water God has sealed you

Unto love and grace divine.


Child of love, our love’s expression

Love’s creation, loved indeed

Fresh from God, refresh our spirits

Into joy and laughter lead.


Child of joy, our dearest treasure

God’s you are, from God you came

Back to God we humbly give you

Live as one who bears Christ’s name.


Child of God your loving Parent

Learn to know whose child you are

Grow to laugh and sing and worship

Trusting in God’s love and care.

GATHERING PRAYER:  Written by Rev. Rachel Campbell

Grace filled God, we celebrate your amazing love for creation.  Today as we open ourselves to your message remind us to pause, discern, and respond with love.  That is our call.  That is our commissioning.  In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.

THE LORD’S PRAYER: spoken together 


A TIME FOR ALL AGES:  Rev. Rachel Campbell

SCRIPTURE: Mark 9:30–37 NRSV   Read by Hannah Collicutt

HYMN:  #133MV “Jesus Laughed Out Loud”

Jesus laughed out loud to see the children play

His joyful presence drew a crowd we could not send away.

Jesus healed a child by asking her to rise

And doubtful people wept and smiled to see her open eyes.


Jesus felt the need; we made the crowd sit down

A boy had faith and all were fed, though we were far from town.

Jesus climbed a hill to pray and rest alone

We wondered why we felt the chill of wind and wood and stone.

Jesus called my name when he was passing by

My life will never be the same; this love will never die.

SERMON: “Please Line Up”   Rev. Rachel Campbell  


HYMN: #560VU “O Master, Let Me Walk with Thee”   

O Master, Let Me Walk with Thee VU 560

Words:  Washington Gladden, 1879

Music:  Henry Percy Smith 1874


Public Domain



O Master, let me walk with thee

In lowly paths of service free;

Teach me thy secret, help me bear

The strain of toil, the fret of care.


Help me the slow of heart to move

With some clear, winning word of love;

Teach me the wayward feet to stay,

And guide them in the homeward way.


Teach me thy patience; still with thee

In closer, dearer company,

In work that keeps faith sure and strong,

In trust that triumphs over wrong,


In hope that sends a shining ray

Far down the future’s broadening way,

In peace that only thou canst give,

With thee, O Master, let me live.


OFFERTORY PRAYER: Gracious God, the offering that we bring is shown in a variety of ways.  We lift up and celebrate all offerings.  Through each of them the ministry of your church continues out into your world.  For that we rejoice.  For that we say Hallelujah.  All glory is God’s.  Amen.

OFFERTORY HYMN: “As We Journey Together”

As we journey together on the path of faith,

may our hearts be attentive to Christ’s plan.

And may we be responsive to our broken world,

off’ring freely the talents that we can.

May all we bring be blessed and shared

with those who need a helping hand.

May all we bring be blessed and shared

creating justice through the land.

CALL TO PRAYER: #381VU “Spirit of Life”

Spirit of Life, come unto me

Sing in my heart all the stirrings of compassion

Blow in the wind

Rise in the sea

Move in the hand, giving life the shape of justice.

Roots hold me close

Wings set me free

Spirit of Life, come to me, come to me.
