QUIET MOMENT OF PREPARATION

 

CALL TO WORSHIP

 

Leader: Let us praise God.
People:  Let us praise the One who has filled the earth with blessings.
Leader:  Let us sing to the Creator who has filled our lives with joy.
People:  Sorrows befall us;
Leader:  Troubles besiege us;
People:  Yet we live supported by God’s love.

 

*HYMN No. 630                                                              Fairest Lord Jesus

 

*PRAYER OF CONFESSION (Unison) God you are the source of every good and perfect gift, with you is life and the joy of living.  But we forget and search everywhere for gifts that only you can give; thus we fall into sin and despair.  Still you accept us; you even give us the task of leading others to the waters of life.  Forgive us, and make us channels of your 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 (Unison)

 

 

 

*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
