{Hope that helps Smile let me know if you need to produce a bulletin graphic or I can e-mail you one that I used }

CALL TO WORSHIP

L: In a day when so many men are absent from their families, we cherish the love of our fathers and father-figures and their impact on our lives.

P: Thank God for fathers and father-figures who love and encourage their children and participate in the life of their family.

L: Thank God for men who cherish their families, patiently and lovingly nurture their children, build their character and inspire them to be the best version of what God created them to be.

P: On this day set aside to remember what it means to have a father or be a father, we recognize the importance of fathers in our communities. We pledge as a congregation to love and nurture the fathers and father-figures among us, and encourage them to manifest the love of God in all that they do.

 

OPENING PRAYER

(In Unison): Loving God, you who are our father and our mother, we thank you for showing us how important it is to follow your example as we grow in faith. Teach us to be obedient to your will, respecting you as children should. Thank you for your grace and mercy in spite of our disobedience. Strengthen us to stand up against the challenges of this world, honoring your name and trusting your grace. In the Name of your Son, we pray. Amen.
