THE LIFE AND WORK OF THE CHURCH

 

ENTERING GOD’S HOUSE

CALL TO WORSHIP

Leader:     God is great, and greatly to be praised!
People:   We thank you God, for families and friends.  
                   We thank you for the warmth of kitchens, quilts,
                   and good neighbors.
Leader:    God, how great is your name throughout the earth!
People:   We thank you God, for new born kittens and faithful dogs, for              pine trees and sunlight and crisp, clean air.
Leader:   Blessed be God, the rock of our salvation!
People:   We thank you God, for the sound of laughter and the touch of               love, for brand new mornings and for dreams held close.
Leader:    Let us come into God's presence with joy and songs of praise.  

                   Come let us worship God.

 

*HYMN No. 138                                  Holy, Holy, Holy! Lord God Almighty!

 

*PRAYER OF CONFESSION (Unison)

                  God, if we carry excess baggage on life's journey, teach us to travel more simply.  If our possessions own us, free us to trust you and share with others. If our need for control keeps us anxious and demanding, help us to relax.  If we carry loads of guilt, may we hand them over to you, trusting you to forgive us.  God make us simple: simple in trust, simple in life, simple in commitment to you.  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
