THE LIFE AND WORK OF THE CHURCH

 

ENTERING GOD’S HOUSE

CALL TO WORSHIP

Leader:   We are gathered to give witness to the enduring realities of life.
People:  We have come to affirm that life is a gift, that the gift is good,               and that it comes from God.
Leader:  We are gathered to renew our hope in Jesus Christ, who is the way,           the truth, and the life.
People:  We find God's guidance in our past and present, but also trust               in God's love and leading in our future.
Leader:  The same God guides us all the way, every day of our lives, and                                beyond life.

 

*HYMN No. 139                                                    Come, Thou Almighty King

 

*PRAYER OF CONFESSION (Unison)

                  Majestic and merciful God, we come to you a wayward people. We have forgotten your intensions for us; we have often rejected the way of Christ; we have disregarded the power of the Holy Spirit; and we have worshipped ourselves and the things we have made.  Forgive us, restore us in the knowledge of whose we are, and make us alive to serve you with faith, hope and love; through Jesus Christ we pray.  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
