*THE CALL TO WORSHIP

People: Praise the Lord with the lyre. Make melody to him with the harp of ten strings. 

Leader: Sing to him a new song; play skillfully on the strings, with loud shouts.

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 that there is no way to outrun your love for us. Remind us of your body given for us that we might know the depth and width of your love for humankind. And re-minding us of these things, let us be honest with ourselves and you about our failures. Where we have failed to love as you love, forgive us. Where we have lived only for ourselves, forgive us. Where we have hurt others intentionally, forgive us. Where we have offended others through omission, forgive us. Give us the grace to recognize our faults and seek fresh starts, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, Amen. 

 

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

 

THE ASSURANCE OF PARDON 

Leader: If anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see: everything has become new. 

People: All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation. 

Leader: Believe the promise of the Gospel: 

People: In Jesus Christ, we are forgiven! - 2 Corinthians 5:17-19 

 

* THE CONGREGATIONAL RESPONSE (Hymn 485) 

Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, let the earth hear his voice! Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, let the people rejoice! O come to the father through Jesus the son, and give him the glory: great things he hath done!

THE ANTHEM  Christ Hath a Garden  Gerald Near 

Christ hath a garden walled around, a paradise of fruitful ground, chosen by love and fenced by grace from out the world's wide wilderness. Like trees of spice his servants stand, there planted by his mighty hand; by Eden's gracious streams, that flow to feed their beauty where they grow. Awake, O wind of heav'n and bear their sweetest perfume through the air: Stir up, O south, the boughs that bloom, till the beloved Master come: That he may come, and linger yet among the trees that he hath set; that he may evermore be seen to walk amid the springing green.
