Call to Worship | Isaiah 25:1, 6-9 NIV

Lord, you are my God;
I will exalt you ane praise your name,
for in perfect faithfulness
you have done wonderful things,
things planned long ago.

On this mountain the Lord Almighty will prepare
a feast of rich food for all peoples,
a banquet of aged wine -
the best of meats and the finest of wines.

On the mountain he will destroy
the shroud that enfolds all peoples
the sheet that covers all nations;
he will swallow up death forever.

The Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears form all faces;
he will remove his people's digrace
from all the earth.
The Lord has spoken,
In that day they will say,
"Surely this is our God;
we trusted in him, and he saved us.
This is the Lord, we trusted in him;
let us rejoice and be glad in his salvation."

God Almighty great Creator
Lord and Father King and Friend
Ever full yet ever giving

God of the Bible

by Shirley Erena Murray © 1996 Hope Publishing Company

God of the Bible
God in the Gospel
Hope seen in Jesus
Hope yet to come
You are our center
Daylight or darkness
Freedom or prison
You are our home

Fresh as the morning
Sure as the sunrise
God always faithful
You do not change

God in our struggles
God in our hunger
Suffering with us
Taking our part
Still You empower us
Mothering Spirit
Feeding sustaining
From Your own heart

Those without status
Those who are nothing
You have made royal
Gifted with rights
Chosen as partners
Midwives of justice
Birthing new systems
Lighting new lights

Hope we must carry
Shining and certain
Through all our turmoil
Terror and loss
Bonding us gladly
One to the other
Till our world changes
Facing the cross


Praise God from whom all blessings flow
Praise him all creatures here below
Praise him above ye heavenly hosts
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost

Welcome and Prayer for New Students

Jesus Calls Us Here to Meet Him

Words and Music by Graham Maule and John L. Bell © 1989

Jesus calls us here to meet him
As through word and song and prayer
We affirm God’s promised presence
Where his people live and care.
Praise the God who keeps his promise
Praise the Son who calls us friends
Praise the Spirit who, among us
To our hopes and fears attends

Jesus calls us to confess him
Word of life and Lord of all
Sharer of our flesh and frailness
Saving all who fail or fall
Tell his holy human story
Tell his tales that all may hear
Tell the world that Christ in glory
Came to earth to meet us here

Jesus calls us to each other
Vastly different though we are
Creed and colour, class and gender
Neither limit nor debar
Join the hand of friend and stranger
Join the hands of age and youth
Join the faithful and the doubter
In their common search for truth

Jesus calls us to his table
Rooted firm in time and space,
Where the Church in earth and heaven
Finds a common meeting place.
Share the bread and wine, his body
Share the love of which we sing
Share the feast of saints and sinners
Hosted by our Lord and King

Scripture | John 21: 1-14 (NIV)

1 Afterward Jesus appeared again to his disciples, by the Sea of Galilee. It happened this way: Simon Peter, Thomas (also known as Didymus), Nathanael from Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee, and two other disciples were together. 3 “I’m going out to fish,” Simon Peter told them, and they said, “We’ll go with you.” So they went out and got into the boat, but that night they caught nothing.

4 Early in the morning, Jesus stood on the shore, but the disciples did not realize that it was Jesus.

5 He called out to them, “Friends, haven’t you any fish?”
“No,” they answered.

6 He said, “Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some.” When they did, they were unable to haul the net in because of the large number of fish.

7 Then the disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, “It is the Lord!” As soon as Simon Peter heard him say, “It is the Lord,” he wrapped his outer garment around him (for he had taken it off) and jumped into the water. 8 The other disciples followed in the boat, towing the net full of fish, for they were not far from shore, about a hundred yards.[c] 9 When they landed, they saw a fire of burning coals there with fish on it, and some bread.

10 Jesus said to them, “Bring some of the fish you have just caught.” 11 So Simon Peter climbed back into the boat and dragged the net ashore. It was full of large fish, 153, but even with so many the net was not torn. 12 Jesus said to them, “Come and have breakfast.” None of the disciples dared ask him, “Who are you?” They knew it was the Lord. 13 Jesus came, took the bread and gave it to them, and did the same with the fish. 14 This was now the third time Jesus appeared to his disciples after he was raised from the dead.

Homily | A Community that Feasts Together

We Will feast in the house of Zion

by Sandra McCracken © 2015 Drink Your Tea Music

We will feast in the house of Zion
We will sing with our hearts restored
He has done great things we will say together
We will feast and weep no more

We will not be burned by the fire
He is the Lord our God
We are not consumed by the flood
Upheld protected gathered up

In the dark of night before the dawn
My soul be not afraid
For the promised morning oh how long
Oh God of Jacob be my strength

Every vow we’ve broken and betrayed
You are the faithful one
And from the garden to the grave
Bind us together bring shalom
