ENTERING GOD’S HOUSE

QUIET MOMENT OF PREPARATION

CALL TO WORSHIP

Leader:   When we stumble and our faith falters, God’s faithfulness bears us

along.

 

People: When our spirits soar and our faith grows strong, God’s

                  faithfulness lifts us to new heights of devotion.

 

Leader:   When our daily duties distract, and our visions grow fuzzy, God’s

faithfulness pierces the fog to beckon us.

 

People:  God’s faithfulness endures forever!  We lift our hearts in

                  praise to the One who is our God this day and                                    forevermore!

 

*HYMN No. 267                                             All Things Bright and Beautiful

 

 

*PRAYER OF CONFESSION (Unison)

                 O God, we come to you as little children who both honor and fear their parents.  You are like a mother and father to us, so we come to you with both trust and anxiety.  It has been so easy to choose the path of our own indulgence instead of the way of sacrifice.

                 We like to feel comfortable and secure rather than risking the disfavor of others or the consequences of standing up against wrong.  Grant us courage to follow the truth you reveal to us.  Amen

             

*KYRIE ELEISON

               Lord, have mercy upon us.

Christ, have mercy upon us.

Lord, have mercy upon us.  Amen.

 

 

*ASSURANCE OF PARDON

Leader:    God says to us:  You are my chosen ones.  I love you.  I’m         proud of you.   Stand firm in your renewed commitment.           Know that I have forgiven you; I call you by name;  you are                     mine.  I have entered into covenant with you and will stand                  by you in all times and places.  Dare to live fully the life to           which I have called you.

People:  Amen.

 

*RESPONSE TO GOD’S GRACE    (Hymn No. 322)

 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.

A nursery is provided each Sunday following the Children’s Time for children in Kindergarten and younger. Children’s Church will be held the first and third Sundays of each month, unless otherwise noted, for children in elementary school. On off Sundays, we encourage the older children to stay and participate in our worship service.

 

 HEARING GOD’S WORD

SERMON                        CAN GOD BE KNOWN?             Rev. Jimmy Fox

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;

                                                                                         cont’d.

 

     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
