“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.

Come in, come in and sit down

You are a part of the family

We are lost and we are found

And we are a part of the family.

 

You know the reason why you came

Yet no reason can explain

So share in the laughter and cry in the pain

For we are a part of the family.

 

God is with us in this place

Like a mother’s warm embrace

We’re all forgiven by God’s grace

For we are a part of the family.

 

Come in, come in and sit down

You are a part of the family

We are lost and we are found

And we are a part of the family.

 

There’s rest for the weary and health for us all

There’s a yoke that is easy and a burden that’s small

So come in and worship and answer the call

For we are a part of the family.

 

Come in, come in and sit down

You are a part of the family

We are lost and we are found

And we are a part of the family.

GATHERING PRAYER: in unison written by Rev. Rachel Campbell

Creator, your welcoming path is presented to us.  Give us the courage to stay on the path.  Give us the determination to inquire and discover.  Give us the curiosity to learn and to grow in your wisdom.  Give us the strength to be and to stay present.  All glory is God’s. Amen

THE LORD’S PRAYER: spoken together

LISTENING TO GOD’S WORD

A TIME FOR ALL AGES: Rev. Rachel Campbell

SCRIPTURE: John 6:1-21

 C:  #355 VU “For the Crowd of Thousands”

Words: Fred Kwan 1968, based on a Dutch hymn by Willem Barnard Words copyright ©️ 1968 Hope Publishing Company. All rights reserved. Reprinted, podcast and streamed with permission under OneLicense #A-727839. All rights reserved. Music: James Frederick Swift 1881 Public Domain

 

For the crowd of thousands sitting on the ground

Seven is sufficient, seven will go round.

Seven is sufficient, fish and loaves of bread

Jesus, for our hunger, gives us life instead.

Jesus makes his offer: fish and bread as food.

Make us truly thankful, make our living good.

If we give to Jesus bread to bless and break

Five and two will feed us seven days a week.

What we give to Jesus, and with others share

Will at last be gathered: over and to spare!

SERMON: Rev. Rachel Campbell

  “All Welcome”

RESPONDING TO GOD’S WORD

HYMN: “Jesus Laughed Out Loud”

Words and music: Daniel Charles Damon, 1994

Words and music copyright © 2002 ABINGDON PRESS. All rights reserved. Reprinted,

podcast and streamed with permission under OneLicense #A-727839. All rights reserved.

 

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.

MINUTE FOR MISSION: Sharon Moyse

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 the 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: #574 VU “Come Let Us Sing of a Wonderful Love”

Public Domain

Come to my heart, O thou wonderful love!

Come and abide, come and abide,

Lifting my life till it rises above

Enjoy and falsehood and pride;

Seeking to be, seeking to be

Lowly and humble, a learner of thee.  

PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE: Read by Rev. Rachel Campbell written by:

Rev. Elaine Palmer-Harding

HYMN: #427 VU  “To Show by Touch and Word”

Words: Fred Kaan, 1974 Music: Ron Klusmeier 1974 Words copyright © 1975 Hope Publishing. Music copyright © 1974 Ron Klusmeier, admin. By Hope Publishing. All rights reserved. Reprinted, podcast and streamed with permission under OneLicense #A-727839. All rights reserved.

 

To show by touch and word devotion to the earth,

to hold in high regard all life that comes to birth,

we need, O God, the will to find the good you had of old in mind.

 

Inspire our hearts to choose the things that matter most,

to speak and do the truth, creating peace and trust.

For every challenge that we face we need your guidance and your grace.

 

Let love from day to day be touchstone, guide and norm,

and let our lives portray your Word in human form.

Now come with us that we may have your wits about us where we live.

COMMISSIONING and BENEDICTION

POSTLUDE HYMN: #481VU “Sent Forth By God’s Blessing”

With praise and thanksgiving to God ever living,

The tasks of our everyday life we will face,

Our faith ever sharing, in love ever caring

Embracing God’s children of each tribe and race.

With your feast you feed us, with your light now lead us;

Unite us as one in this life that we share.

Then may all the living with praise and thanksgiving

Give honour to Christ and the name that we bear.
