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 spirits.
Leader:   Come, let us be filled with the Spirit of the Living God.
People:   Breathe in us, Breath of God.  Alleluia

 

                                                                        

*HYMN No. 33                                      Praise the Lord! God’s Glories Show

 

*PRAYER OF CONFESSION (Unison)
 
  Most holy and most merciful God, in your presence we must face the sinfulness of our nature and the errors of our ways, 
intended and accidental.  You alone know how often we have failed by wandering from your path, wasting your gifts, and underestimating your love.  Have mercy upon us, O God, for we have broken your requirements for justice and overlooked opportunities for kindness.  Humble us with your truth and raise us by your grace that we may more nearly be the people of Christ and witnesses of your Spirit.  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

**One Great Hour of Sharing

Since 1949, Presbyterians have joined with millions of other Christians through One Great Hour of Sharing to share God’s love with our neighbors-in-need around the world. Your generous gifts to this Special Offering help provide relief for those affected by natural disasters, provide food to the hungry, and assist in helping to empower the poor and oppressed. We will be collecting donations until Easter and all loose change collected on Easter Sunday will be contributed to OGH. Thank you!

                                                                          — The Stewardship Committee

 

 

 

 

 

As we pray today we will be remembering

St. Paul’s Presbyterian Church in Chester, SC and their 28 members.
