Welcoming Covenant

In the name of God and Jesus Christ, the Hingham Congregational Church

welcomes all who seek to know and worship God, and invites everyone to join

in our mission through participation and leadership of the congregation.

As a community of faith, we take seriously the biblical call to love God and our

neighbors as ourselves, and recognize that, although we are many members,

we are one.

❖   We celebrate the uniqueness of everyone.

❖   We rejoice in our diversity of views and understandings of our shared faith.

❖   We affirm relationships based on love, commitment, and mutual respect.

❖   As is stated in our by-laws, we strive for righteousness, justice and peace.

It is with this spirit and the love of God that we openly welcome all persons,

inclusive of every race, ethnicity, class, age, gender, physical or mental ability,

sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression, and inclusive of any

others, to journey with us as we move forward with the work of this church in the

Opening Prayer and Lord’s Prayer (in unison)

Creative and Creating God, source of beauty and wonder, we come before you as a people seeking solace and meaning. In our service today, please accept the various gifts we bring — artistic endeavor, contemplation, fellowship, treasure, talent, and prayer. Please help us to look more deeply and carefully at everything and everyone one we see each day….




Lord’s Prayer     

Our Father* who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy

will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and

forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory

forever. Amen.

*We acknowledge God to be among people of all gender identities and expressions;

we also acknowledge the importance of tradition.


Hymn                    Colorful Creator NCH 30


Colorful Creator, God of mystery,

thank you for the artist teaching us to see glimpses of the

meaning of the common place, visions of the

holy in each human face.

Harmony of ages, God of listening ear,

thank you for composers tuning us to hear echoes of the

Gospel in the songs we sing, sounds of love and

longing from the deepest spring.

Author of our journey, God of near and far,

praise for tale and drama telling who we are, stripping to the

essence struggles of our day, times of change and

conflict when we choose our way.

God of truth and beauty, Poet of the Word,

may we be creators by the Spirit stirred, open to your

presence in our joy and strife, vessels of the

holy coursing through our life.

Special Music        The Heavens Are Telling (From Creation) text from Psalm 19

Franz Joseph Haydn

Pastoral Prayer                                              Daryl Denelle, Ministry Intern

Scripture Reading:  Psalm 19:1-6                     Deacon Ellen Rathke


The heavens are telling the glory of God; and the firmament proclaims his handiwork.

Day to day pours forth speech, and night to night declares knowledge.

There is no speech, nor are there words; their voice is not heard;

yet their voice goes out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world.

In the heavens he has set a tent for the sun,

which comes out like a bridegroom from his wedding canopy, and like a strong man runs its course with joy.

Its rising is from the end of the heavens, and its circuit to the end of them; and nothing is hid from its heat.
