CALL TO WORSHIP

People: We will exalt you and praise your name.

Leader: For you have done wonderful things.

People: Your plans are faithful and sure.

Leader: Let us worship God!

 

*HYMN No. 37                                                        Let All Things Now Living

 

 

*PRAYER OF CONFESSION: (Unison)

            Holy God, the giver of all good things, we have failed to live in thanksgiving for our creation, for the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the soil that grows our food. Forgive us for sins against you, your creation, and our neighbors. Forgive our lukewarm response to your Will in word and deed. Teach us to walk in the way of your steadfast love, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. 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: God reveals mercy through Jesus Christ. God gives us new life in

the power of Holy Spirit. God’s grace turns us towards what is good             and just.

People: Thanks be to God.

 

 

 

*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

 

 

*AFFIRMATION OF FAITH

            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
