A contemplative evening worship service that invites us to reflect on God's grace.


All of the following pieces of the worship service are included in Evening Grace:
The Prelude is an instrumental medley (piano) of all of the songs included in the worship service which can be played as the community gathers to worship.

The Call to Worship
reminds us of who God is and who we are . . .
       Leader:  Welcome to worship.  Our God, who is full of grace, is here with us.
       People:  Some of us are all tired out and some of us are energized by the events of this day.
       Leader:  Our God, who is full of grace is here with us.
       People:  Some of us are lonely and some of us are all "peopled" out.
       Leader:  Our God, who is full of grace, is here with us.
       People:  Some of us are thankful for answers and some of us are full of questions.
       Leader:  Our God, who is full of grace, is here with us.
       People:  Some of us have been aware of God's presence throughout the day and some of us are here to be reminded of God's presence at the end of this day.
       Leader:  Our God, who is full of grace, is here with us.
   (this is an excerpt from the Call to Worship)

Handbells
(or triangles) ring from the front, the back and the sides of the worship space to remind us that God's grace is all around us.

Be Still helps us to quiet ourselves in God's presence at the end of the day.

The Grace of God
responsive reading celebrates the grace of God that is amazing, unending, gentle, powerful, new every morning, full of truth and light, and gives life and hope. . .

.......
Leader:  God's grace makes us cry.
.......People:  God's grace makes us giggle.

.......People:  God's grace takes our breath away.  (this is an excerpt from The Grace of God responsive reading)

The procession of candles and singing of Your Word is a Lamp remind us that "God's Word is a lamp for our feet and a light for our path".

We meditate on the Word of God.

We pray together as we sing Spirit of Grace.

The blessing sends us out knowing that the endless grace of God, the patient love of Jesus, and the faithful presence of the Spirit will be with us.

The closing song, At the End of the Day, affirms that "God's grace has carried us along and will take us through the night and make us new each day with the dawn".

    "'Evening Grace' was easy to learn and very singable.  It perfectly fit the mood of evening worship - an opportunity to reflect at the end of the day.  My favoite part was that, even if I wasn't leading, as a member of the congregation I got to sing along with every song!"
    Anne G., Worship Leader

    "I truly loved the 'Evening Grace' service you put together.  You creatively set the stage to hear and ponder the message of God's grace with us.  Thank you for sharing your talents!"
    Lisa J.

    "Thank you so much for creating and leading such meaningful and lovely Lenten services.  One of the comments I heard last night was, 'I don't know what I'm going to do without this beautiful service time!'  Thank you!"
    Pastor Ruth S-P., St. Timothy Lutheran Church

    "Just wanted to let you know that we introduced 'Evening Grace' last night for our Lenten service.  I have never heard so many favorable comments!  It was easy to sing and so beautiful!  As I was accompanying the congregation, I actually had tears in my eyes . . . my favorite song was 'At the End of the Day'.  Just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU."
    Linda A., Faith Lutheran Church
