Church started off with an awesome Collect:
Let us pray.
Almighty God, Creator of heaven and earth, we praise you for the wonder, beauty and goodness of your creation, for the order of the universe, and for the rhythm of work and rest you establish. We thank you for making us coworkers with you in your ongoing creating. Guide us as we celebrate this privilege and reflect upon the meaning and joy of working creatively with you all our days, that the work of our lives may be pleasing to you, through Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
And it closed with this final blessing:
God of abundance, you have fed us with the bread of life and cup of salvation; you have united us with Christ and one another; and you have made us one with all your people in heaven and on earth. Now send us forth in the power of your Spirit, that we may proclaim your redeeming love to the world and continue for ever in the risen life of Christ our Savior.
