L: Come, all who thirst—come to the water!
C: You who long for the water of life—come and drink!
L: Dip your soul in the river of God’s goodness; quench your thirst at God’s well of grace.

God together!

Apostles Creed
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth; And in Jesus Christ his only Son, our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; the third day he rose from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.

Psalm 19
L: Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.
C: Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song.
L: For the Lord is the great God, the great King above all gods.
C: In his hand are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to him.
L: The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land.
C: Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker; for he is
our God and we are the people of his pasture, the flock under his care.
L: Today, if only you would hear his voice, “Do not harden your hearts as you did at Meribah,
as you did that day at Massah in the wilderness,
C: where your ancestors tested me; they tried me, though they had seen what I did.
L: For forty years I was angry with that generation; I said, ‘They are a people whose hearts go
astray, and they have not known my ways.’
C: So I declared on oath in my anger, ‘They shall never enter my rest.’ ”

“Creation WIll Be at Peace”

Exodus 17:1-7
          1 The whole Israelite community set out from the Desert of Sin, traveling from place to place as the LORD commanded. They camped at Rephidim, but there was no water for the people to drink. 2 So they quarreled with Moses and said, “Give us water to drink.” Moses replied, “Why do you quarrel with me? Why do you put the LORD to the test?” 3 But the people were thirsty for water there, and they grumbled against Moses. They said, “Why did you bring us up out of Egypt to make us and our children and livestock die of thirst?” 4 Then Moses cried out to the LORD, “What am I to do with these people? They are almost ready to stone me.” 5 The LORD answered Moses, “Go out in front of the people. Take with you some of the elders of Israel and take in your hand the staff with which you struck the Nile, and go. 6 I will stand there before you by the rock at Horeb. Strike the rock, and water will come out of it for the people to drink.” So Moses did this in the sight of the elders of Israel. 7 And he called the place Massah and Meribah because the Israelites quarreled and because they tested the LORD saying, “Is the LORD among us or not?”

Invitation, Confession, and Pardon
Rev. Dan Elmore
          Merciful God, we confess that we have not loved you with our whole heart. We have failed to be an obedient church. We have not done your will, we have broken your law, we have rebelled against your love, we have not loved our neighbors, and we have not heard the cry of the needy. Forgive us, we pray. Free us for joyful obedience, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
The Great Thanksgiving
Rev. Dan Elmore
L: The Lord be with you.
C: And also with you.
L: Lift up your hearts.
C: We lift them up to the Lord.
L: Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.
C: It is right to give our thanks and praise.
C: 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. C: Christ has died, Christ is risen, Christ will come again!
The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.
