Were gathered into one to become our bread;
So may all your people from all the ends of earth
Be gathered into one in you.

512 Lord, Let My Heart Be Good Soil
Lord, let me heart be good soil, open to the seed of your word,
Lord, let my heart be good soil,
Where love can grow and peace is understood.
When my heart is hard, break the stone away.
When my heart is cold, warm it with the day.
When my heart is lost, lead me on your way.
Lord, let my heart, Lord, let my heart,
Lord, let my heart be good soil.

* LORDíS PRAYER Ė MUSIC
The Lordís Prayer
Music by Ben Kyle
Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom, thy kingdom cometh in earth and heavín, in earth and heavín.
Give us this day our daily bread, and grant that no one should go unfed.
Forgive us, Lord, our trespasses, as we forgive our trespassers.† Chorus
Lead us not into temptation, deliver us from every evil thing.
Thine is the kingdom, power and glory, now and forever into eternity.† Chorus
SECTION: SENDING† God blesses us and sends us!
* CLOSING HYMN
We Are the Church
We are the Church, the body of our Lord;
We are all Godís children.† We have been restored.
The Church is not a building where people go to pray;
Itís not made out of sticks and stones, itís not made out of clay.† Chorus
You can go to worship but you cannot go to church,
You canít find a building thatís alive no matter how you search.† Chorus
The Church is not a business, a committee or a board.
Itís not a corporation for the business of the Lord.† Chorus
The Church, it is the people, living out their lives,
Called, enlightened, sanctified for the work of Jesus Christ.† Chorus
Go in peace. Serve the Lord.
Thanks be to God.
