*THE CALL TO WORSHIP

*THE PROCESSIONAL HYMN 478  Praise, My Soul, the King of Heaven

THE CALL TO CONFESSION

THE PRAYER OF CONFESSION
Almighty God, you know the burdens we carry and the weight of them on our
lives. Forgive our self-sufficiency. We have become so adept at planning, performing,
staying busy that sometimes we forget the importance of relying on you
and the rest that you can provide. Forgive us for forgetting that in times of
weakness and hour of need yours is the strength by which we should rely. We
give this burden to you, mindful of Jesus’ promise that he will give us rest. Amen

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

THE ASSURANCE OF PARDON
One: Our God is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
All: When we fall, God is there to help us up again.
One: Friends, believe the good news
All: In Jesus Christ we are forgiven.

*THE CONGREGATIONAL RESPONSE  (Hymn 446)
Glorious things of thee are spoken, Zion, city of our God; God, whose word cannot be
broken, formed thee for a blest abode. On the rock of ages founded, what can shake thy
sure repose? With salvation’s walls surrounded, thou may’st smile at all thy foes.

O heavenly Father, who hast filled the world with beauty; open, we beseech thee, our eyes to behold
thy gracious hand in all thy works; that rejoicing in the whole creation, we may learn to serve thee with
gladness; for the sake of him by whom all things were made, thy Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Great Thanksgiving
One: The Lord be with you.

All: We lift them to the Lord.

Sanctus: Holy, holy, holy, Lord, God of power and might, (Hymn 581)

Christ will come again.
