THE LIFE AND WORK OF THE CHURCH

 

 

ENTERING GOD’S HOUSE

 

QUIET MOMENT OF PREPARATION

 

CALL TO WORSHIP

Leader: God has accomplished all things through Christ,

People:  So that we might live as God’s own children.

Leader:  Let us give thanks to God.

People:  And live for the praise of God’s glory!

 

*HYMN No. 318                                  In Christ There Is No East or West

 

*PRAYER OF CONFESSION: (Unison)

Holy God, you call us to be your beloved children and to care for one another, yet we fail to love others and ourselves. Helpless and ashamed, we turn our hearts to you. Forgive us, and then tenderly teach us to stand strong and courageous in the fullness of your love. Help us to lean deeper into the grace and mercy of Christ. 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: Sisters and brothers, God forgives and strengthens us for love;

therefore be at peace.

People: It is through the love of Jesus Christ that we are forgiven.

 

 

*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

Love and Peace,

Craig
