THE LIFE AND WORK OF THE CHURCH

 

ENTERING GOD’S HOUSE

QUIET MOMENT OF PREPARATION

CALL TO WORSHIP

Leader:   We have gathered here this morning to worship God.

People:   We have come seeking comfort, inspiration, community, and              insight.

Leader:   We have come to open ourselves to the power of God’s presence in        our midst.

People:   We have come to offer up the seasons and the turning in our              lives, and to ask God’s help in our learning and in our growing.

 

*HYMN No. 282                                 If Thou but Trust in God to Guide Thee

 

*PRAYER OF CONFESSION (Unison)

God of everlasting mercy, hear our prayer today, as we bring our lives before you.  We come as people who dwell on the past.  We want to face your new day with life and hope in our hearts, but many times the events of our lives weigh us down.  We forget to forgive one another.  We dwell on our own past mistakes.  We refuse to bury dead issues and worn-out memories – forgive us God.  Free us, free us from ourselves God, so that we might walk your new pathways, alive with grace, through Jesus Christ.  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.

 

MOMENT WITH THE CHILDREN                                             Dr. Johnson

A nursery is provided each Sunday following the Children’s Time for children in Kindergarten and younger. Children’s Church will be held the first and third Sundays of each month, unless otherwise noted, for children in elementary school. On off Sundays, we encourage the older children to stay and participate in our worship service.

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
