THE LIFE AND WORK OF THE CHURCH               Shirley Cauthen, Liturgist

ENTERING GOD’S HOUSE

CALL TO WORSHIP

Leader:             Called to lead a life that is worthy, we gather as God’s people.
People:  Our backgrounds are different, our habits vary, but we share a

  common faith in Christ.
Leader:   Called to be people of peace and gentleness, we offer these gifts to all

of God’s creation.
People:  Though each of us is unique and precious to God, our hearts beat

               as one with hope.
All:        We gather as God’s family — the incarnation of God’s Son

               who is seeking to be revealed in the way we live, pray and worship.

 

*HYMN No. 341                                              Blessed Assurance, Jesus Is Mine!

 

*PRAYER OF CONFESSION

Leader:   God longs for us to be faithful children, God begs us to live as role

models for a world desperate for hope. But, we know how often we

raise up trouble by our words, our actions, our failures. Let us speak

truthfully in love about our lives, as we come to the One whose love is

as constant as the air we breathe.
People:   We know the mistakes we have made.

                Like children who run from one distraction to another, we chase

                after the easy temptations of the world.
                Forgive us.   Heal us. Craft us new hearts, which beat with one

               another, and as one with Jesus Christ  our Lord and Savior. Amen

                 

*KYRIE ELEISON

               Lord, have mercy upon us.                                                         

               Christ, have mercy upon us.                                                         

                Lord, have mercy upon us.  Amen.

 

*ASSURANCE OF PARDON

Leader:   If we drop our nets of earthly distractions, God holds out in front of us

the possibility of discipleship.

People:  We will lay aside all the fears and doubts, all the worries and

               resistance, so we can follow Jesus, trusting always in him.             

 

*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.

SERMON     THE THIRD MAN ON THE EMMAUS ROAD

Rev. Jimmy Fox

 

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
