ENTERING GOD’S HOUSE

QUIET MOMENT OF PREPARATION

CALL TO WORSHIP                                                                             

Leader:     Come, let us worship Almighty God.
People:   Let us lift up our songs, our prayers, our praises.
Leader:   Come, let us honor Jesus Christ.
People:   Let us love Christ with our hearts, our minds, our actions.
Leader:   Come, let us be filled with the Holy Spirit of the Living God.
People:   Breathe in us life and joy, O breath of God.

 

*HYMN No. 32                                               I Sing the Mighty Power of God

 

*PRAYER OF CONFESSION (Unison)                                                                           Eternal and most merciful God, we are children of dust and unworthy of the favors and goodness you shower upon us.  We have not loved as you have loved us, nor have we lived as we ought, and our years
are soon gone.  God have mercy on us.  Lift us above every past regret
and present failure; reveal to us our true selves; and give us grace to
accept your mercy and courage to live by your promise.  Lamb of God,
you take away the sin of the world; grant us your peace.  We have no
other hope save in 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
