ALL SAINTS SUNDAY
Artist: Helga Sen
Welcome and ANNOUNCEMENTS
Kyrie: Pg. 184 ELW
Thanksgiving for Baptism:
Joined to Christ in the waters of Baptism, we are clothed with God’s mercy and forgiveness. Let us Give Thanks for the gift of baptism.
We give you thanks O God, for in the beginning, you created us and placed us in a well-watered garden. In the desert, you promised pools of water for the parched, and you gave us water from the rock. When we did not know the way, you sent the Good Shepherd to lead us to still waters. On this day, you shower us again with the water of life.

Psalm 149 (Read Responsively)
Sing to the Lord a new song,
his praise in the assembly of the faithful.
2 Let Israel be glad in its Maker;
let the children of Zion rejoice in their King.
3 Let them praise his name with dancing,
making melody to him with tambourine and lyre.
4 For the Lord takes pleasure in his people;
he adorns the humble with victory.
5 Let the faithful exult in glory;
let them sing for joy on their couches.
Gospel Acclamation: This is the Air I Breathe.
This is the air I breathe; this is the air I breathe,
your holy presence living in me.
This is my daily bread, this is my daily bread,
your holy word spoken in me.
And I, I’m desperate for you. And I, I’m lost without you.
This is the air I breathe; this is the air I breathe.

Let us remember all the saints before God.
We praise and bless you, O Holy Trinity. You have taught your church that it is an ageless communion of saints. We thank you for gathering those who have gone before.
