Call to Worship   
    Let us give thanks to God with our whole hearts;
        Let us bow down before the temple of the Lord.
    All shall sing of the ways of the Lord,
        For great is God’s glory.

Opening Prayer
Creating God, you call us to be your children. You gift us with one another as brothers and sisters and call us to join together as a loving family. Grant that we may learn to live in harmony and peace with one another, so that all will want to become part of this new kind of family.
  Through Jesus Christ our Lord, who with you and the Spirit lives and reigns, one God forever and ever. Amen.

Children's Time

Family can mean more than just those who live in your house with you.

You can count everyone you love and who loves you as part of your ohana.

But even more importantly, you are a part of God's family,

a part of the Christian family, and thus family with everyone in the world.
