OPENING Song
Spirit Come

Spirit come, close to us
And meet us where we are
Clean our hands, heal our souls
And purify our hearts
Lord we want to feel Your presence
We long for who You are
Faithful One, meet us here,
Where we are

Touch the hearts of those who seek You
So that we may know Your grace
Let us recognize Your power
As Your glory fills this place

Spirit come, close to us
And meet us where we are
Clean our hands, heal our souls
And purify our hearts

So that we may know Your grace
Let us recognize Your power
As Your glory fills this place

Clean our hands, heal our souls

THE GOSPEL

Matthew 22:1-14
Once more Jesus spoke to the people in parables, saying: "The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who gave a wedding banquet for his son. He sent his slaves to call those who had been invited to the wedding banquet, but they would not come. Again he sent other slaves, saying, `Tell those who have been invited: Look, I have prepared my dinner, my oxen and my fat calves have been slaughtered, and everything is ready; come to the wedding banquet.' But they made light of it and went away, one to his farm, another to his business, while the rest seized his slaves, mistreated them, and killed them. The king was enraged. He sent his troops, destroyed those murderers, and burned their city. Then he said to his slaves, `The wedding is ready, but those invited were not worthy. Go therefore into the main streets, and invite everyone you find to the wedding banquet.' Those slaves went out into the streets and gathered all whom they found, both good and bad; so the wedding hall was filled with guests. "But when the king came in to see the guests, he noticed a man there who was not wearing a wedding robe, and he said to him, `Friend, how did you get in here without a wedding robe?' And he was speechless. Then the king said to the attendants, `Bind him hand and foot, and throw him into the outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.' For many are called, but few are chosen."

Operation Christmas Child Since 1993 more than 135 million boys and girls in over 100 countries have experienced God’s love through the power of simple shoebox gifts filled with toys, school supplies, and hygiene items and distributed by Operation Christmas Child, a ministry of Samaritan’s Purse. This is a missions opportunity for each of us. Once again, the Daughters of the King will coordinate the distribution and collection of the shoeboxes. Distribution will be on Sunday, October 29 through Sunday, November 12 after the 10 a.m. service. National Collection Week is November 13-20. We will collect and bless all shoeboxes on Sunday, November 19. If you drop off your shoebox beforehand, please place it on the hat shelf in the narthex. Check out the display in the narthex for more information. You may see Lynda Basham or Pam Hawthorne if you have any questions.
