ENTERING GOD’S HOUSE

CALL TO WORSHIP
Leader: May Christ dwell in your hearts through faith, as you are being rooted and grounded in love.
People: May you have the power to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge.
Leader: Now to the One who is able to accomplish far more than all we can ask or imagine,
People: To God be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever.
All: Let us worship God together!

*HYMN No. 464 Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee

*PRAYER OF CONFESSION
Leader: The Spirit calls each of us
People: Blessed Redeemer, have mercy upon us as we confess our sin. You endow us with goodness while we squander your blessings. We yearn for the possessions that our neighbors enjoy. Envy, greed, and selfishness consume us. Satisfaction eludes us as our cravings increase. Quiet our longing for material things, and help us trust in Christ Jesus who provides for our deepest needs. Amen.

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

*ASSURANCE OF PARDON
Leader: And now may “Christ dwell in your hearts through faith, as you are being rooted and grounded in love, that you may have the power to comprehend, with all the saints, what is the breadth and length and height and depth. May you know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, so that you may be filled with the fullness of God.” With that fullness will come the assurance that God forgives all our sin.
People: Amen.

RESPONDING TO GOD’S 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
