Sunday School for the children is now in person each Sunday, the children will begin their time in worship at 11:00 a.m. and then proceed to their Sunday School classroom following the Message with the Children.
If you are willing and able to assist with Sunday School or any children’s activities, please see Zina about having your background check done. It takes 15 minutes to complete!
If you do not receive the Monday Memo or Weekly Wrangler, please let Janet know. This is the best way to stay informed as to what our church is doing.
We begin by acknowledging, with humility, that the land where we reside and worship today was a traditional place of living, hunting and worship for the "Apsaalooke People" who we now know as the Crow People.
We also acknowledge with gratitude the indigenous peoples and Nations on whose land we live throughout Montana and Northern Wyoming:
The Blackfeet, Salish, Kootenai and Pend D'Oreilles (PENDORAY)
The Assiniboine (ASSINABOYN) & Gros Ventre (GROW-VANT)
The Sioux, Northern Cheyenne, Chippewa Cree
Eastern Shoshone & Northern Arapaho
Let us remember that we occupy their sacred land.
Remembrance of Baptism
We give you thanks, O God,
For in the beginning your Spirit moved over the waters
And by your Word you created the world,
Calling forth life in which you took delight.
Through the waters of the flood, you delivered your beloved creation.
Through the sea you led your people Israel from slavery into freedom.
At the river, your Son was baptized by John and anointed with the Holy Spirit.
By water and your Word, you claim us as partners of relationship,
Making us heirs of your promise and servants of all.
We praise you for the gifts of water that sustains life,
And above all we praise you for the gift of new life in Jesus Christ.
Shower us with your Spirit,
And renew our lives with your forgiveness, grace, and love.
To you be given honor and praise through Jesus Christ our Lord in the unity of the Holy Spirit, now and forever. Amen.
Sharing the Meal: Communion
Moment of Silence
Prayer of Thanksgiving and Prayer of our Savior;
All: God of abundance, with this bread of life and cup of salvation you have united us with Christ, making us one with all your people. Now send us forth in the power of your Spirit, that we may proclaim your redeeming love to the world and continue forever in the risen life of Jesus Christ, our Lord Amen.
Passing of the Peace
Prayers of the People (our updated prayer list will be available in the on-line Bulletin April 18)
A prayer in the way that our Savior taught us to pray:
All: Loving Creator,
Your name is above all names.
As we live together in both unity and discord
We seek to model our lives after your life; today, tomorrow, and forever.
Through your Word you sustain us
As you extend your life-renewing grace to us, guide us in extending that same grace to others.
Hold us from those moments when our choices separate us from your presence.
Safely lead us from the darkness that threatens to over-power us.
May your creation and divine presence be within us forever. Amen.
