PRELUDE by Janesta Williams, Organist

THE LIFE AND WORK OF THE CHURCH Camille Dunlap, Liturgist

ENTERING GOD’S HOUSE

CALL TO WORSHIP
Leader: Here in this place, with these people, we come to worship the living God.
People: In you, O God, we hope; in you, Creator of love, we live.
Leader: Here in this sacred space, in these very moments, we are invited to worship the One who creates.
People: In you, Christ of the Way, we rejoice; in you, dear Brother, grace is as near as your heart.
Leader: Here on this day of gentleness and beauty, we are filled with the peace of God.
People: In you, O Spirit, we find our path; in you, Teacher of hope, we learn to serve.

*HYMN No. 220 All People That on Earth Do Dwell

*PRAYER OF CONFESSION (Unison)
You call us into your kingdom, Inviting God, but our busy lives keep us from responding. You remember every word we utter, every prayer we whisper, but we forget all the little ways you care for us. You would make your gentleness known through us, but we lash out in anger and fear towards others. Forgive us, God of all hope, and remember your Servant, Jesus Christ. In him, we can live in your way. Through him, we can learn the dreams you have for us. With him, we can open our arms and embrace all the people we meet. Amen

*KYRIE ELIESON
Lord, have mercy upon us, Christ, have mercy upon us, Lord, have mercy upon us. Amen

*ASSURANCE OF PARDON
Leader: As we are forgiven by God, we can begin to reflect on all those ways in which we can live justly, act honorably, love completely. This is indeed good news for us.
People: With every new moment of time, we are fed with grace, and nourished with joy, so we may go and bring hope and peace to everyone we meet. Thanks be toGod. Amen (Lectionary Liturgies, Pentecost-17 A)

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
