A Celebration of Worship

Service of Installation of a Minister of Word and Sacrament

The Approach to God

 

  Prelude                     Deck Thyself, My Soul with Gladness                      J.S. Bach
  Welcome    

*Processional Hymn (Insert)                                                     Let Us Build a House

*Votum and Sentences (Responsive)                             Rev. Jonathan Vanderbeck

Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
       Amen.    
There is one body and one spirit, just as you were called to the one hope of your calling, one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God of all, who is above all and through all and in all.
       Each of us was given grace

       according to the measure of Christ's gifts.
Christ appointed some to be apostles, some prophets,

some evangelists, some pastors and teachers.
       Christ did this to equip the saints for the work of ministry,

       for building up the body of Christ, and for serving a broken world.
And so we come together in oneness of faith

and in certain knowledge of the Son of God.
       We come to bring glory to God only,

       and to celebrate his gracious gifts to all of us.
In this spirit of unity and service, let us worship God.

 

  Remembering Our Baptism                                     Rev. Dr. Sherri Meyer-Veen

  Salutation

*Hymn of Praise #53                                                       Let All Things Now Living

  Call to Confession                                                               Rev. Nicholas Dorland

  Prayer of Confession (Responsive)

Mighty and merciful God, you have called us to be your people, and claimed us for the service of Jesus Christ.

We confess that we have not lived up to our calling. We have been timid disciples, forgetting the power of your love and the strength of your Spirit among us. O God, forgive our foolish and broken ways. As you have chosen us and claimed us in our baptism, strengthen us anew to choose Christ's way in the world. Give us your Holy Spirit that each one in ministry may be provided with all the gifts of grace needed to fulfill our common calling; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

  Words of Assurance
  Choral Response/Guide for Grateful Living                    Let Us Build a Church

God of creation, Maker of all thing, we gather in this place to pray.

We do invite you come now among us. Come build Your church today.

Come build a church with soul and spirit, come build a church of flesh and bone. We need no tower rising skyward; no house of wood or glass or stone.

Come build a church of human frailty, come build a church of flesh and blood.

Jesus shall be its sure foundation. It shall be built by the hand of God. 

Let us see the tongues of fire. Let us hear the great wind roar.

Let us know the awe and wonder that we’ve only glimpsed before.

Let us feel the strength of passion, which can make us laugh and weep.

Let us know this great awakening. For so long we’ve been asleep.

Let us know the love unceasing, which alone can loose the bounds.

Reaching out across the chasms, bringing walls of hatred down.

Hold us in the sweet connection, turning strangers into friends.

   Come build a church with soul and spirit, come build a church of flesh and bone. We need no tower rising skyward; no house of wood or glass or stone.

Come build a church of human frailty, come build a church of flesh and blood. Jesus shall be its sure foundation. It shall be built by the hand of God.

We Respond in Thanksgiving and Service

*Thanksgiving (Responsive)

Bless the Lord, O my soul,
       and all that is within me, bless God’s holy name!
Bless the Lord, O my soul,
       and forget not all God’s benefits.
God gave Jesus Christ for us all, and will give us all things with Christ.
       Therefore, shall my mouth and heart show forth

       the praise of the Lord from this time forth, forevermore.
