THE LIFE AND WORK OF THE CHURCH

 

ENTERING GOD’S HOUSE

 

QUIET MOMENT OF PREPARATION

 

CALL TO WORSHIP    Psalm 19, Adapted         Devon Overstreet, Liturgist

Leader:            The heavens are shouting the glory of God!

People: The days and the nights declare the magnificence of God’s

           creative words.

Leader: Their voice goes through all the earth and their words reach the ends

of the world.

People: Let our words of praise be acceptable to you, O Lord, our rock

           and our redeemer!

 

*HYMN No. 20                                      All Things Bright and Beautiful

 

*PRAYER OF CONFESSION: (Unison)

Holy God, we confess that we need your help. You know our fault before we speak. Forgive us for what we have done in opposition to your will. Forgive us for those things we have not undertaken and for which we know are wrong. We have not loved you and our neighbor as we ought. We have denied our dependence on you. Strengthen us to be the people you are shaping us to be. Amen.

 

 

*CONGREGATIONAL RESPONSE (Kyrie Eleison)

Lord, have mercy upon us.

Christ, have mercy upon us.

Lord, have mercy upon us. Amen.

 

*ASSURANCE OF PARDON

Leader: The law of the Lord is perfect and it revives the soul. God’s ways

are clear and it enlightens the eyes. Hear the good news!

People: In Jesus Christ, the living Word, we are forgiven. May we live

            in peace.

 

 

*RESPONSE TO GOD’S GRACE   (Hymn No. 468, vs. 1&3)

In my life, Lord, be glorified; be glorified.

In my life, Lord, be glorified today.

In your church, Lord, be glorified; be glorified.

In your church, Lord, be glorified today.

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
