*HYMN No. 2                                                        Come, Thou Almighty King

 

*PRAYER OF CONFESSION (Unison)

  Almighty God, we never cease to cut ourselves off from you by our sins, and yet you gently urge us to repentance and promise to hear our prayers with favor.   Grant that we may not stubbornly keep to our sins and be ungrateful for your great generosity, but may return to you in such a way as to witness by our lives to the genuineness of our repentance.  Grant that we may stand firm and fast in a right purpose and so endeavor to obey you throughout our lives, at last receiving the fruit of our obedience in your heavenly kingdom.  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. 288)

 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
