THE LIFE AND WORK OF THE CHURCH

ENTERING GOD’S HOUSE

QUIET MOMENT OF PREPARATION

CALL TO WORSHIP
Leader: In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
People: Behold our God is a Creator.
Leader: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God.
People: Behold our God is a Redeemer in Jesus Christ.
Leader: The earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep; and the Spirit of God was moving over the face of the waters.
People: Behold our God is The Holy Spirit.
All: Let us worship the God who is one and three, three in one, who heals our brokenness and gathers us to himself.

*HYMN No. 634 To God Be the Glory

*PRAYER OF CONFESSION (Unison)
God of new life, we often say that anyone who is in Christ is a new creation. Yet when we consider our lives, we confess our failure to live in Christ. You promise to be present with us always, yet our fear for the future shows we do not trust in you. You love us with a great, eternal, and costly love, yet our self-hatred shows that we have not opened ourselves to your love. You promised that where your Spirit is there is freedom, but we have not let you set us free. God, guide us on the journey of growth. God forgive us and free us from our fears, our prejudice, and our self-hatred, that we may live in Christ in the freedom 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
