Virtual Service for November 22nd

Hello Meed’s UMC,

It saddens me that we are apart this Sunday and moving into the advent season. However, we know that our Lord is with us and guiding us forward. People of God, please stay safe in this difficult time. Know that I am praying every day for all in our congregation.


Greetings of Grace and Peace:

Call to Worship:

We come, for God gathers us here, with that community called faith:
where the hungry are served first, where the thirsty drink life’s water.
We come, for God welcomes us here into that home called grace:
where the naked are clothed in robes of hope; where the stranger is embraced as the long-lost prodigal.
We come, for God reunites us here, sisters and brothers in that family called love:
where the imprisoned model justice, where the sick are cradled in God’s peace.

Opening Prayer: 

Holy One, enthroned in glory over all creation, you are a shepherd to the lost and the least. Teach us to see your face among the poor— feeding the hungry, giving drink to the thirsty, welcoming the stranger, clothing the naked, and visiting those who are sick or in prison— so that we may share in your eternal realm prepared from the foundation of the world; through Jesus Christ, who reigns with justice, compassion, and love.  Amen
