THE LIFE AND WORK OF THE CHURCH

 

ENTERING GOD’S HOUSE

 

QUIET MOMENT OF PREPARATION

 

CALL TO WORSHIP

 

Leader: We have come to celebrate the birthday of the church.
People:  We have come to celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit.
Leader:  We have come to celebrate Pentecost and to open ourselves to

God’s Spirit that it might fill us.
All:         O God, help us to put our selfish desires aside and direct our

thoughts to you, that your power might fill this church and our

lives fully, just as it has filled churches and people throughout

the ages.  Teach us to be your people.

 

*HYMN No. 279                                      Come, Holy Spirit, Heavenly Dove

 

*PRAYER OF CONFESSION (Unison) Jesus Christ, we have lived as if we did not need you, pretending that life is what we make it – forgive us.  In those exceptional moments of openness when we received the gift of faith, we have assumed it was given for ourselves alone.  Awaken us by your Spirit to fuller dimensions of faith.  Lead us to find in our neighbors the opportunities for love, in the social order the possibilities for justice, and in the affairs of nations the potential for peace.  Reform our attitudes and behavior until in every circumstance we may, by your grace, be the instruments of your saving Word.  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
