Underwood Memorial Baptist Church

All are Welcome

Underwood is an open and affirming Christian community from differing racial, ethnic, cultural, & denominational backgrounds, who worship in the Baptist traditions.

We are united as siblings in Christ, believing that God calls us all to be ministers to the liberation, forgiveness, healing, & new life in Christ. Our community is a vibrant one; you can find us studying scripture, praying, working for peace & justice, laughing, cooking meals, blessing our pets & backpacks, singing, serving together, celebrating weddings, babies, & so much more.

September 25th, 2022 10:00 a.m


Prelude We Are the Light of the World Jean Anthony Greif

Welcome to Worship Pastor Jason

Call to Worship Kate Olsen

One: Come to this place and time of promise.

Many: We are becoming the house of hope, the field of sunflowers, the vineyard of great caring.

One: Come to a shared commitment, to abundance possible for all people.

Many: We are an earthenware jar, to keep safe the tomorrow of children. Our security question is the word of God, and our password is love.

All: Amen

Welcome one-another (stay in your spots and wave)


Opening Hymn Only a Shadow Carey Landry

Prayers of the People with the Lord’s Prayer

Creator God, who is in heaven, may your name be glorified.

May your kindom come, and your will be done,

On earth as it is in heaven.

Give us today our daily bread, and forgive us our sins,

As we forgive those who have sinned against us.

Lead us away from temptation, and deliver us from evil.

For yours is the kindom, the power, and the glory,

Now and Forever. Amen
