Welcome to Wayzata Community Church where lots of different
people come together for the shared purpose of worshiping God
and encouraging each other through the inclusive love of Jesus.
Whether you are our guest, looking for a church home, or already a
member, we want you to feel welcomed by our congregation and
inspired and uplifted by our worship service.
You are invited to be seated
to receive the Postlude as a parting gift.
Or, you may quietly proceed to
Founders Hall for fellowship and coffee.

one of our clergy leaders will be near the Prayer Room
at the back of the Sanctuary.

HYMN OF DEVOTION
Blest Be the Tie That Binds, vs. 1+3 Blue #272
Blest be the tie that binds our hearts in Christian love;
The fellowship of kindred minds is like to that above.
When we are called to part it gives us inward pain,
But we shall still be joined in heart, and hope to meet again.
THE GATHERING OF GOD’S PEOPLE
The whole assembly proclaims the Word by gathering for
worship. Our gathering witnesses to neighbors, friends, and
family that we live by rooted and radical allegiance
to the One who created, redeemed, and sustains us.
THE GREAT THANKSGIVING
All things come from God. With praise and thanksgiving
we return to God that which has been shared.
The entirety of worship, draws us into communion with Jesus.
We give thanks for this time of unity.
THE WORD FOR THE DAY
The Word is always “Good News.” Jesus encounters us,
and is truly present, in the proclamation of the Word.
Through spoken word and by participating in the liturgy,
our congregation proclaims the Word of God.
