THE LIFE AND WORK OF THE CHURCH

ENTERING GOD’S HOUSE

 

QUIET MOMENT OF PREPARATION

 

CALL TO WORSHIP

Leader: Out of the fullness of the lives God has given us,
we have come to worship and to praise.
People: With thanks we offer God the creativity of our minds,
              the warmth of our hearts, and the joy of our spirits.
Leader: We love because God has first loved us, freeing us
from the power of sin and death.
People: With glad hearts let us join together in singing
              praise to God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

 

*HYMN No. 331                               God of the Ages, Whose Almighty Hand

 

*PRAYER OF CONFESSION (Unison)Dear God, for the day you have given us, with all its possibilities, we thank you.  For your gifts of life and love, of labor and rest, we praise your holy name.  Forgive us that too often we are unappreciative while your goodness surrounds us; that we feel alone when there are many who love us; that we despair when your strength is near at hand.  Tear down the walls that isolate us, make strong the ties that bind us, and help us to walk together with joy in all your ways; through the grace of Jesus Christ and the power 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
