WELCOME/SHARING THE PEACE
The presiding minister and the congregation greet each other in the peace of the risen Christ.
P The peace of Christ be with you always.
C And also with you.
The people may greet one another with a sign of Christ’s peace and may say:
Peace be with you or similar words. Please ask before offering handshakes or hugs,
waves are always a safe no-touch choice.
P: We are here today to celebrate reformation.
C: God, please re-form us.
P: Hold us, O God, and
C: Help us to experience you in new ways.
P: We are here today to honor our tradition and history.
C: God, thank you for all that has gone before.
P: We begin and celebrate in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Amen.
P: Let’s get this party started!
C: We’re ready! Amen!
