 THE LIFE AND WORK OF THE CHURCH

 ENTERING GOD’S HOUSE

QUIET MOMENT OF PREPARATION

CALL TO WORSHIP

Leader:     I will bless the Lord at all times;

People:   His praise shall continually be in my mouth.

Leader:   My soul makes its boast in the Lord;

People:   Let the humble hear and be glad.

Leader:   O magnify the Lord with me,

People:  And let us exalt his name together.

 

*HYMN No.  263              All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name

 *PRAYER OF CONFESSION

  Lord, God forgive us. As we move about in these frightening days in the world, we find that people of high positions seem to disappoint us too often; powers seem to be too jealous; chaos seems to have too free a hand; and we do not always trust your lead. Look mercifully on us and our fears, O God. Please do not give us just wishful thinking that pretends that there is no danger. Instead, give us faith that moves us into a pilgrimage toward your promised hope. We pray in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

 *KYRIE ELEISON

Lord, have mercy upon us.

Christ, have mercy upon us.

Lord, have mercy upon us.  Amen.

*DECLARATION OF PARDON

Leader:   God knows all and forgives all.

Friends, believe the good news of the Bible, in Jesus Christ, we are forgiven.

People:  Since God has forgiven us in Christ, let us forgive one another.

 

*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
