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.

Call to Worship (inspired by Psalm 112:1-10)                                                                Sean Cornell                                      

One: Praise the Holy One! Be in awe of God!

Many: Happy are those who delight in the Holy One’s presence!

One: Fear no evil. Keep your heart firm. Be secure in God!

Many: Happy are those who delight in the Holy One’s protection!

One: Arise for what is right. Be pursuers of justice.

Many: Happy are those who delight in the Holy One’s power!

One: Sovereign God, we gather as a community to worship you in spirit and in truth. May we resist

empty actions. Let our rituals and routines hold meaning and connect us to you. May seek an encounter

with you to receive your revelation and be transformed, healed, and renewed. Let it be so.

All: Amen.

Prayers of the People 

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
