* HYMN OF THE DAY

 

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.

BLESSING

 

* CLOSING HYMN

 

We Are the Church

Chorus

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

 

 

DISMISSAL

 

Go in peace. Serve the Lord.

Thanks be to God.
