Call to Worship
with Pastor Hannah

Throughout the ages, disciples have said,
“I will follow you wherever you go.”
Lord, give us the freedom to follow you
in the ways of love.

We come from busy homes, filled with little time
to consider Christ in our lives.
Lord, give us the strength to follow you
in the ways of peace.
In times of struggle, we look to God for help.
Lord, give us the opportunity to follow you
in the ways of kindness.
Today we celebrate the Holy Spirit,
who shows us the joy of following God.
Lord, give us the patience to follow you
in the ways of faith. Amen.

Opening Hymn
Gracious Creator of Sea and of Land
Worship & Song #3161

Verse 1
Gracious Creator of sea and of land,
sculptor of coral and miller of sand,
stretch out your hand, part the seas of our lives.
Lead us to freedom and open our eyes.

Verse 2
Life-giving Savior who taught by the sea,
saying to fisher folk, “Come, follow me,”
send us to gather the outcasts, the least.
Make us your aides at the great justice feast.

Verse 3
Spirit of Pentecost, still blowing free,
show us your vision of all we can be.
Call us to boldness, to goodness, to prayer.
Summon our courage, our dreaming, our care.

Opening Prayer
with Pastor Jeremiah

Holy One, we come before you today: full of hope, full of desire, full of promise. Help us take up the mantle of faith you have laid before us, that we may use our own gifts of the Spirit to face the challenges before us. Help us face the turmoil within and around us, that we may face the future unafraid. Show us your way, your truth, and your life. Amen.

Passing the Peace
with Pastor Jeremiah

The peace of Christ be with you!
And also with you!

Jesus Loves Me
United Methodist Hymnal #191

Verse 1
Jesus loves me! This I know,
for the Bible tells me so.
Little ones to him belong;
they are weak, but he is strong.
Yes, Jesus loves me! [x3]
The Bible tells me so.

The Inclusive Bible ©2007 by Priests for Equality

Matthew 25: 31-40

31“At the appointed time the Promised One will come in glory, escorted by all the angels of heaven, and will sit upon the royal throne, 32 with all the nations assembled below. Then the Promised One will separate them from one another, as a shepherd divides the sheep from the goats. 33 The sheep will be placed on the right hand, the goats on the left. 34 The ruler will say to those on the right, ‘Come, you blessed of my Abba God! Inherit the kindom prepared for you from the creation of the world! 35 For I was hungry and you fed me; I was thirsty and you gave me drink. I was a stranger and you welcomed me; 36 naked and you clothed me. I was ill and you comforted me; in prison and you came to visit me.’ 37 Then these just will ask, ‘When did we see you hungry and feed you, or see you thirsty and give you drink? 38 When did we see you as a stranger and invite you in, or clothe you in your nakedness? 39 When did we see you ill or in prison and come to visit you?’ 40 The ruler will answer them, ‘The truth is, every time you did this for the least of my sisters or brothers, you did it for me.’

Response to Scripture

The Word of God for the people of God.
Thanks be to God!

Hymn of Preparation
I Want to Walk as a Child of the Light
United Methodist Hymnal #206
verses 1 & 2

Verse 1
I want to walk as a child of the light.
I want to follow Jesus.
God set the stars to give light to the world.
The star of my life is Jesus.

In him there is no darkness at all.
The night and the day are both alike.
The Lamb is the light of the city of God.
Shine in my heart, Lord Jesus.

Verse 2
I want to see the brightness of God.
I want to look at Jesus.
Clear Sun of Righteousness, shine on my path
and show me the way to the Father.


Sermon Preparation

May the words of my mouth,
and the meditation of our hearts
be acceptable to your Spirit,
our Rock and our Redeemer.

What Do I Want to Be Remembered For?
with Pastor Jeremiah

Hymn of Response
The Summons
The Faith We Sing, #2130
verses 1, 4 & 5

Verse 1
Will you come and follow me
if I but call your name?
Will you go where you don’t know
and never be the same?
Will you let my love be shown,
will you let my name be known,
will you let my life be grown
in you and you in me?

Verse 4
Will you love the “you” you hide
if I but call your name?
Will you quell the fear inside
and never be the same?
Will you use the faith you’ve found
to reshape the world around,
through my sight and touch and sound
in you and you in me?

Verse 5
Lord, your summons echoes true
when you but call my name.
Let me turn and follow you
and never be the same.
In your company I’ll go
where your love and footsteps show.
Thus I’ll move and live and grow
in you and you in me.

Sending Off of Pastor Jeremiah
Words of Appreciation: Evie Burke
Presentation of Gifts: Pastor Hannah & Oliver Taylor

I thank you, the members and friends of Community United Methodist Church, for the love and support you have shown me while I have ministered among you. I am grateful for the ways my leadership has been accepted. I ask forgiveness for the mistakes I have made. As I leave, I carry with me all that I have learned here.

We express our gratitude for your time among us. We ask your forgiveness for our mistakes. Your influence on our faith and faithfulness will not leave us with your departure. We trust that our time together and our parting are pleasing to God. We pray for God’s abundant blessings for you and your family as you move to minister to people at Good Samaritan UMC in Addison.

Pastoral Prayer & The Lord’s Prayer
with Pastor Hannah

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 sins, as we forgive those who sin 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.

Hymn of Sending Forth
This Is My Song
United Methodist Hymnal #437
verses 1 & 3

Verse 1
This is my song, O God of all the nations,
a song of peace for lands afar and mine.
This is my home, the country where my heart is;
here are my hopes, my dreams, my holy shrine;
but other hearts in other lands are beating
with hopes and dreams as true and high as mine.

Verse 3
This is my prayer, O Lord of all earth’s kingdoms:
Thy kingdom came; on earth thy will be done.
Let Christ be lifted up till all shall serve him,
and hearts united learn to live as one.
O hear my prayer, thou God of all the nations;
myself I give thee; let thy will be done.
