WE PRAISE THE LORD OUR CREATOR
INTROIT AND BRINGING IN THE LIGHT OF CHRIST
Let this be a time of preparing our hearts for worship
#613  “O Lord, Our Lord”

CALL TO WORSHIP
One: God cares for us completely and calls for our total commitment.
All: Christ gave his life that we might live and calls us to give our lives to him.
One: Through Christ we have died to sin:  in Christ we are fully alive to God.
All: Come, let us worship God.

*HYMN   #39   “Great Is Thy Faithfulness”


WE CONFESS OUR NEED


*PRAYER OF CONFESSION
O Lord, most holy, you entice us with your love.  You show    us how merciful you are.  You have compassion on us always.  We confess that we sometimes turn away from your love.  Instead we are enticed by the treasures of this world.  Wealth, popularity, comfort lure us away from faithful discipleship.  Forgive us when we shrink away from your calling.  Strengthen us to do all that you call us to do.  In Jesus' name.  Amen.


*ASSURANCE OF PARDON
One: God who loves us, does not abandon or forsake us.  Our Savior hears and answers when we cry out from the wastelands of sin.  Death cannot bind us, for the risen Christ sets us free.  Believe the Good News:
All: In Jesus Christ we are forgiven.  Thanks be to God!
One: We have received peace with God through Jesus Christ.  Therefore, let us turn to those around us and greet one another in the peace of Christ.

PASSING THE PEACE OF CHRIST

*SUNG RESPONSE         “Gloria Patri”   (Avery & Marsh)
Glory be to the Father, and the son, and the Holy ghost; As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. Amen. Amen. Amen.
Amen. Amen. Amen. Amen.
