Call to Worship:
Leader: God always provides. God gave the Hebrews Manna that fell from the sky every day to sustain them for 40 years in the desert.
People: Even when we cannot see how, we trust that God will continue to provide for us all that we need.
Leader: Around the world and throughout time people have thrived on the sustaining grace that is found in bread.
People: Baked in different traditions we have anpan from Japan, baba from China, arepa from South America, baguettes from France, and homemade buttermilk biscuits from the southern United States.
Leader: We also have the bread roll from Europe, the breadstick from Italy, the bagel from Jewish culture, and crisp bread from Scandinavia, and for those with sensitivities or allergies, we have gluten-free bread in many forms that all may be accommodated, cared for, and included.
People: We eat bread with gratitude that God has provided to keep our bodies alive and well. We celebrate the community that God has formed as we share bread together.

Our Father who is in Heaven hallowed be your name.
Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread.

And lead us not into a time of trial, but deliver us from evil.
For yours is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever. Amen!
