Call to worship:

Leader: Here we come to the table again, the holy table set for us unholy saints.

    All: Here we come, the broken-hearted,

    the unemployed, the fearful ones,

    the guilty ones, the lonely, the anxious,

    the despairing, the grief-stricken.

    Here we come, men and women,

    children and parents, poor and rich,

    rolling and walking, left and right, short and tall,

    every color and class imaginable.

    Here we come, because we're hungry,

    used up, worn down, tired out,

    hung up, cast off, stressed out,

    turned off, put down, lost!

Leader: Let us come and receive from the One who builds us up and gives us His grace, our Lord Jesus.


*Praise & Worship                                                             Page 14, Praise & Worship Book



Leader:  Jesus prayed that we might be one. One in spirit, One in mission. One in union and Communion with one another and with you.

Today, God, we confess fumblings and failures in accomplishing unity, as we set aside yet another day to remind ourselves of the task. On this World Communion Sunday, give us eyes to recognize your reflection in the eyes of Christians everywhere. Give us a mind to accept and celebrate our differences. Give us a heart big enough to love your children everywhere. We thank you for setting a table with space enough for us all! 

How good and pleasant it is for Christians to live together in unity!

Carry greetings across the railroad tracks to those we never meet.

How good and pleasant it is for Christians to live together in unity!

Send messages and e-mails to good Christian friends in Africa and Asia, South America, and Europe!

How good and pleasant it is for Christians to live together in unity!

Extend your hand of fellowship to both the shelters and the mansions, to the projects and the gated communities.

How good and pleasant it is for Christians to live together in unity!

Remember that we are one HUGE family!!!

How good and pleasant it is for Christians to live together in unity!

World Communion Sunday liturgy


The Lord be with you.

And also with you

Lift up your hearts.

We lift them up to the Lord.

Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

It is right to give our thanks and praise.


It is right, and a good and joyful thing, always and everywhere to give thanks to you, Father Almighty, creator of heaven and earth. You have made from one every nation and people to live on all the face of the earth.


And so, with your people on earth and all the company of heaven we praise your name and join their unending hymn:


Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might, heaven and earth are full of your glory. Hosanna in the highest. Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord, Hosanna in the highest.




Holy are you, and blessed is your Son Jesus Christ, By the baptism of his suffering, death, and resurrection you gave birth to your Church, delivered us from slavery to sin and death, and made with us a new covenant by water and the Spirit. He commissioned us to be his witnesses to the ends of the earth and to make disciples of all nations, and today his family in all the world is joining at his holy table.


On the night in which he gave himself up for us, he took bread, gave thanks to you, broke the bread, gave it to his disciples, and said: “Take, eat; this is my body which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.”


When the supper was over he took the cup, gave thanks to you, gave it to his disciples, and said: “Drink from this, all of you; this is my blood of the new covenant, poured out for you and for many for the forgiveness of sins. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.”


And so, in remembrance of these your mighty acts in Jesus Christ, we offer ourselves in praise and thanksgiving as a holy and living sacrifice, in union with Christ’s offering for us, as we proclaim the mystery of faith.


Christ has died; Christ is risen; Christ will come again.


Pour out your Holy Spirit on us gathered here, and on these gifts of bread and wine. Make them be for us the body and blood of Christ, that we may be for the world the body of Christ, redeemed by his blood.


Renew our communion with your Church throughout the world, and strengthen it in every nation and among every people to witness faithfully in your name. By your Spirit make us one with Christ, one with each other, and one in ministry to all the world, until Christ comes in final victory, and we feast at his heavenly banquet.


Through your Son Jesus Christ, with the Holy Spirit in your holy Church all honor and glory is yours, almighty Father, now and for ever.




Prayer after communion:

Here we are, eating again, without credentials, without money, without vouchers or coupons, just because you say we belong. Thanks!  Here we go, full, from the table again, still unholy saints, but saints again alive, renewed in compassion and hope, taking bread with us for those not yet at the table. 


*Hymn of Commitment 501                                         O Thou Who Camest From Above

(You are invited to come forward to pray.)
