ENTERING GOD’S HOUSE

 

QUIET MOMENT OF PREPARATION

 

CALL TO WORSHIP

 

Leader:  Gracious and loving Creator, we come today in summer joy;
People: We come to celebrate your love among us;
Leader:  We come here secure and assured-
People:  Of your forgiveness and truth,
Leader:  Your salvation and joy,
People:  Your sustaining love and your alluring will.
Leader:  Yet in this hour we know, too, and confess our weakness-
People:  Our faltering faith and our rancorous lives.
Leader:    Lead us, great God, in faith, through the hours and days ahead.
People:  To glorify you and to serve you and one another.

 

*HYMN No. 624                          I Greet Thee, Who My Sure Redeemer Art

 

*PRAYER OF CONFESSION (Unison)  Merciful God, you pardon all who truly repent and turn to you.  We humbly confess our sins and ask your mercy.  We have not done justice, loved kindness, or walked humbly with you, O God.  Have mercy on us, O God, in your loving-kindness.  In your great compassion, cleanse us from our sin.  Create in us a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within us.  Do not cast us away from your presence, or take your Holy Spirit from us.  Restore to us the joy of your salvation and sustain us with your bountiful 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.

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

A NOTE TO THE PARENTS,                                                                         As you know the Christian Education Committee had planned a Fun Day picnic for all children in Sunday School and their parents and immediate families on Saturday, June 7th at the Van Wyck Community Center.  After finding out that several of our families will be on vacation at that time we have decided to postpone the Fun Day.  The CE Committee is not planning a Vacation Bible School for this summer and we wanted to do something to get all the children and families together for fun and fellowship.  The CE Committee plans to provide the meal of hot dogs and all the fixin’s.   We will let you know of a date once that is determined.  If you would like to suggest possible dates, please let me know.

Thank you and have a fun safe beginning of summer, Pat.
