CALL TO WORSHIP

Leader:   Cry out, people of faith! Rejoice and praise God!
People:   If we did not sing praise, the very stones would cry out!
Leader:   Cry out, people of faith, for your Savior draws near to Jerusalem.
People:   Hosanna! God Saves! Blessed is the One who comes in God's

                name!
Leader:   Blessed is Jesus Christ, who did not turn back for fear of the

                cross.  Let us praise the God who loves us, sharing Christ's

                sufferings, and facing with courage our path of faith.
People:   Hosanna! God Saves! Blessed is the One who comes in God's

                name!

                                                                       

*HYMN No. 196                                                    All Glory, Laud and Honor

 

*PRAYER OF CONFESSION (Unison)
  O Lord, who on this day entered the rebellious city that later rejected you, we confess that our wills are as rebellious as Jerusalem's, that our faith is often more show than substance, that our hearts are in need of cleansing.  Have mercy on us, Son of David, Savior of our lives.  Help us to lay at your feet all that we have and all that we are, trusting you to forgive what is sinful, to heal what is broken, to welcome our praises, and to receive us as your own.  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.

 

MOMENT WITH THE CHILDREN                                             Pat Oglesby

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
