Theme Song for July:"Sowing, Sowing"

Call to Worship (adapted from Isaiah 55): 
L: For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven,
P: And water the earth, 
L: Bringing forth life, giving seed to the sower 
P: And bread to the eater,
L:  So shall God's word go forth.  It shall not return to God empty,
P: But shall accomplish God's purpose.
L: For we shall go out with joy, and be led forth in peace.
P: The mountains and hills shall burst into song.
ALL: The trees of the field shall clap their hands.

Call and Response from Isaiah 55: "The Word Comes Full"

Children's Sermon:"Planting the Seed"

Communion/Stewardship Meditation:  God has sent the Word out among us, sowing love and peace in our lives.  And now the Word returns, as we bring to God hearts that forgive, lives that are at peace with our neighbor, hands that share generously with those in need.  We invite God to till the soil of our lives, to root out the places where we're stuck or fearful, so that we can become an abundant harvest for the coming of God's kingdom.  May the Word work through us; may the Word become us.
