THE LIFE AND WORK OF THE CHURCH

 ENTERING GOD’S HOUSE

 QUIET MOMENT OF PREPARATION

CALL TO WORSHIP

Leader:               You are God’s own people, named from the beginning and    for all   eternity as God’s chosen and cherished ones.

People:               We are known by the name exalted above all other names. It is   by this name that we live with assurance in the promises of   God.

Leader:               Let us worship God in whom our true identity and value are   secured forever.

People:               Praise the Lord for whom nothing is impossible!

 

*HYMN No.  475                         Come, Thou Fount of  Every Blessing Every  

*PRAYER OF CONFESSION (Unison)     Merciful God, we confess that we have not always lived knowing who we are, not knowing that we are your sons and daughters. Instead, we have allowed the world to name us according to our sins and failures. As a result, we have spiraled into despair rather than reaching toward the light of our true potential as those who have been claimed by you. Forgive us, Lord, and, through the work of your Holy Spirit, convince us that we belong to you now and forever. In Christ’s name, we pray. Amen. 

*KYRIE ELEISON                                                                                                  Lord, have mercy upon us.                                                                                  Christ, have mercy upon us.                                                                                 Lord, have mercy upon us.  Amen.

*ASSURANCE OF PARDON

Leader:     Friends believe the good news of the Bible, through Jesus Christ  you are forgiven.

People:   Since God has forgiven us in Christ, let us also forgive one another. Peace be with you my brothers and sister.

 *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
