THE GATHERING  Baron Mullis
Leader: The Lord be with you.
People: And also with you.

THE PRELUDE  Largo from Symphony in e minor  Antonín Dvorák

*THE CALL TO WORSHIP
Leader: Give thanks to the Lord and call upon God's name, make known God's deeds among the peoples.
People: Sing to God, sing praises to God; tell of all God's wonderful works.
Leader: Glory in God's holy name;
People: Let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.
Leader: Let us worship the Lord. -Psalm 105: 1-3

*THE PROCESSIONAL HYMN 481  Praise the Lord, God’s Glories Show

THE CALL TO CONFESSION

THE PRAYER OF CONFESSION
Holy God, from you and through you and to you are all things. You have given us
such gifts: your community, your love and your grace. You sent Jesus to show us how
to live in your beloved community. You sent your Holy Spirit to help us live as you
would have us live. Very often we forget that these gifts are all around us; we are often
prideful and sometimes mean and jealous as we confuse the purpose of your gifts with
our own selfish desires. Our insecurities sometimes imprison us. Forgive us our sins.
Help us to let our love be genuine and to share your gifts within each of us with others.
Amen.

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

THE ASSURANCE OF PARDON
Leader: Who is to condemn?
People: It is Christ Jesus, who died, yes, who was raised, who is at the right hand
of God, who indeed intercedes for us.
Leader: Nothing will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
So believe the good news of the Gospel:
People: In Jesus Christ we are forgiven. - Romans 8:34,39b

*THE CONGREGATIONAL RESPONSE (Hymn 391)
Take my love; my Lord, I pour at thy feet its treasure store. Take myself, and I will be
ever, only, all for thee, ever, only all for thee.

THE SERMON  “Just Tell Us What To Do”  Drew Stockstill

 

*THE HYMN 335  Though I May Speak

*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; 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.

THE PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE AND THE LORD’S PRAYER
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come,
thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors; and lead us not into
temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom and the power
and the glory, forever. Amen.

*THE CHORAL RESPONSE  God Be in My Head  John Rutter
God be in my head and in my understanding. God be in mine eyes and in my looking. God be in
my mouth and in my speaking. God be in mine heart and in my thinking. God be at my end and in
my departing.

*THE POSTLUDE  Trumpet Tune in D  David Johnson
