We gather today on the traditional territory of the Algonquin nation. May we always dwell on this land with respect and peace.

Anthem:  We Plough the Fields and Scatter

Greeting The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.  And also with you.

Collect   Creator of the fruitful earth, you made us stewards of all things. Give us grateful hearts for all your goodness, and steadfast wills to use your bounty well, that the whole human family, today and in generations to come, may with us give thanks for the riches of your creation. We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ the Lord.  Amen. 

Reading:   1 Timothy 2:1-7   read by Julia Turner

First of all then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for everyone, for kings and all who are in high positions, so that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and dignity. This is right and is acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires everyone to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God; there is also one mediator between God and humankind, Christ Jesus, himself human, who gave himself a ransom for all—this was attested at the right time.  For this I was appointed a herald and an apostle (I am telling the truth, I am not lying), a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth.

Hymn:  262   Come, Ye Thankful People, Come

Psalm: 126                                               

Gospel:  Matthew 6:25-33       

‘Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And can any of you by worrying add a single hour to your span of life? And why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not clothed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? Therefore do not worry, saying, “What will we eat?” or “What will we drink?” or “What will we wear?” For it is the Gentiles who strive for all these things; and indeed your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But strive first for the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

Canada Helps

  • Offertory: Generous financial support is our expression of gratitude which along with our time and talents enables us to provide worship at St. Bart’s and support God’s work in service in our community and beyond.
    We thank our contributors on the PAR program for their monthly automated donations. If you would like to enroll on our monthly withdrawal plan, PAR, you may follow this link
    And thank you for those who have been mailing in their contributions or dropping them through the church mail slot. At this difficult time “Canada Helps” is another way to support us through a credit card payment. (They charge, we think, a reasonable, 3.75% to us)
