*THE CALL TO WORSHIP
Leader: I will sing of your steadfast love, O Lord, forever,
People: with my mouth I will proclaim your faithfulness to all generations.
Leader: I declare that your steadfast love is established forever,
People: your faithfulness is as firm as the heavens.
Leader: Let us worship the Lord our God. - Psalm 89:1-2

*THE PROCESSIONAL HYMN 461 God Is Here!

THE CALL TO CONFESSION

THE PRAYER OF CONFESSION
Eternal God, remind us of our baptism as we prepare to come to your table.
Remind us of your unmerited, unconditional love for sinners as we listen to your
Word that we might acknowledge our sin, take comfort in your forgiveness
freely given, and turn ourselves to the way you would have us go. We ask these
things because we know that we have sinned and we need forgiveness. Guide
our hearts and our minds in this moment and in each passing moment that we
might be more and more the disciples you have called and that we might offer
the grace we have received to others. We pray this in the name our Lord Jesus
Christ. Amen.

A MOMENT OF SILENCE (for examination of conscience and personal prayers of confession)

THE ASSURANCE OF PARDON
Leader: This is the message that we heard from him and proclaim to you,
that God is light and in him is no darkness at all.
People: If we say that we have fellowship with him while we are walking
in darkness, we lie and do not do what is true. But if we walk in the light
as he himself is in the light, we have fellowship with one another and the
blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.
Leader: Believe the promise of the Gospel:
People: In Jesus Christ, we are forgiven. - 1 John 1:5-7

* THE CONGREGATIONAL RESPONSE (Hymn 119)
The strife is o’er, the battle done, the victory of life is won.
The song of triumph has begun. Alleluia!
