*HYMN No. 14                                                    For the Beauty of the Earth

 

*PRAYER OF CONFESSION (Unison) We come into your presence with thanks, Creator God, for all that fills our lives with joy; the love of family and friends, the comfort of our homes, the challenge of work, and the delight of leisure.  Forgive us that too often we have taken all these for granted, failing to see them as your gifts.  In this time of worship, stretch our understanding, that we may know our lives in the perspective of your sovereign world, and to be at home wherever your spirit leads us; through Jesus Christ your son.  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
