CALL TO WORSHIP

Leader:   The earth is the Lord’s and all that is in it,

People:  The world and all those who live in it!

*HYMN No.  461   God Is Here

*PRAYER OF CONFESSION (Unison)

Lord, we are hoarders of prosperity.  We do not trust that you will provide and we are often not grateful when you do.  Forgive us when we do not have enough faith to go where you lead because we are afraid that we will lose status or wealth.  Forgive us when we are not thankful for what we have, believing that we have earned it all on our own.  Forgive us when we fear more than we trust, failing to risk ourselves for your kingdom.  In your mercy, free us from selfishness so that we may choose your will and obey your commandments; through Jesus Christ our Savior.  Amen.

* KYRIE ELEISON

Lord, have mercy upon us,

Christ, have mercy upon us,

Lord, have mercy upon us.  Amen.

*ASSURANCE OF PARDON

Leader:   Hear the good news!

AllWho is in a position to condemn?  Only Christ, and Christ died for us, Christ rose for us, Christ reigns in power for us, Christ prays for us.  Anyone who is in Christ is a new creation the old life has gone; a new life has begun.

Leader:  Know that you are forgiven and be at peace.  Amen.

RESPONDING TO THE WORD

* THE APOSTLES’ CREED

I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth.

And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead and buried, he descended into hell; the third day he rose again from the dead, he ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty, from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting.  Amen.
