Joining the family
A service of
God calls us to be a family of faith:
young and old, children and parents,
God invites us to learn and grow together.
We give thanks to God that our learning
God provides for us
God welcomes us to worship
Because God loves and welcomes us first:
we are able to be a community
Because God's Spirit goes with us:
we are able to greet others
Today we welcome David and Trish
We give thanks to God for them --
There are many different gifts:
but it is the same Spirit who gives them.
There are many different ways of serving God:
but it is the same God who is served.
God works through different persons in different ways:
but it is the same God
Just as the body is one and has many members,
For in the one Spirit
David and Trish, we welcome you
A blessing is spoken or sung together.
