THE LIFE AND WORK OF THE CHURCH

ENTERING GOD’S HOUSE

CALL TO WORSHIP

Leader:   The Spirit of God moves among us, binding us in covenant with

  faithful people of every time and place.

People:  The Spirit moves within us, empowering us to proclaim the gospel

               to all people.

Leader   : The Spirit moves through us, making us channels of God's love

People:   As we gather to worship, we open ourselves to the Spirit of the

  Living God made known to us in Jesus Christ. Amen.

 

*HYMN No. 316                                                    Breathe on Me, Breath of God

 

*CORPORATE PRAYER OF CONFESSION (Unison)

  O God, whose name is love, we mean to do well, but our
intensions are soon discarded. We try to be faithful, but we are diverted by so many things. We do not wish to harm anyone, but, for lack of consideration, we sometimes hurt those we love the most. We refuse to accept the help of others because we are unwilling to admit our needs. We, too, can say with the man who came to you "Lord Jesus, I am not worthy that you should enter my house; only say the word and I shall be healed.” Amen.

 

 *KYRIE ELEISON

               Lord, have mercy upon us.                                                         

               Christ, have mercy upon us.                                                         

                Lord, have mercy upon us.  Amen.

 

*ASSURANCE OF PARDON

 

*RESPONSE TO GOD’S GRACE    (Hymn No. 322)

 Spirit of the living God, Fall afresh on me;

             Spirit of the living God, Fall afresh on me.

             Melt me, mold me, Fill me, use me.

             Spirit of the living God, Fall afresh on me.

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
