THE LIFE AND WORK OF THE CHURCH

ENTERING GOD’S HOUSE

QUIET MOMENT OF PREPARATION

CALL TO WORSHIP

Leader:      Wonder at a twinkling star.

Leader:      Joy at a scooting lizard.
People:      Awe at a dancing campfire.
Leader:      These are elements of worship.
People:      Let wonder have its way, let delight fill, let joy resound, let

    Awe humble, as we worship God!

 

*HYMN No.  321                                              The Church’s One Foundation

*PRAYER OF CONFESSION (Unison)   Merciful Father, we come before you today with hearts that need to be made clean. We have failed to help and visit the sick and depressed. We have not given the poor the concern and compassion they need. We have neglected those who need us the most. Forgive us Lord, and change the direction of our lives which point mostly to fulfilling the desires of our own hearts. Redirect our lives to accomplish your will. Cleanse our hearts through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.
We pray in Jesus’ name   
  

*KYRIE ELEISON

 Lord, have mercy upon us.

Christ, have mercy upon us.

Lord, have mercy upon us.  Amen.

 

 

*DECLARATION OF PARDON
Leader:      God’s love dries all of our tears.
People:      God’s grace lifts us up.
Leader:      God’s peace settles our worries.
All.             In the name of the risen Christ, we are forgiven.

 

*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
