Those who belong to Christ come gladly to his table to remember Jesus and to celebrate his presence. Thank you to all the children and youth who are participating in our service today by reading, leading in prayer, music and serving Communion.

Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,

your will be done on earth as in heaven.

For the kingdom, the power,
and the glory are yours now and forever. Amen
