THE PRELUDE  Come Down, O Love Divine  Charles Callahan

Jonathan Crutchfield, Organist/Choirmaster

 

*THE CALL TO WORSHIP

Leader: Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness, come into his presence with singing.

People: Know that the Lord is God. It is he that made us and we are his; we are God’s people, the sheep of God’s pasture.

Leader: Enter God’s gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise. Give thanks to him, bless God’s name.

People: For the Lord is good; God’s steadfast love endures forever, and God’s faithfulness to all generations.

Leader: Let us worship the triune God, creator, redeemer and sustainer. - Psalm 100

 

*THE PROCESSIONAL HYMN 482  Praise Ye the Lord, the Almighty  LOBE DEN HERREN

 

THE CALL TO CONFESSION

 

THE PRAYER OF CONFESSION

Eternal God, though we are made in your image, we fail to live as you made us to live. Where we have missed opportunities to serve, we need forgiveness. Where we have been unkind, we need forgiveness. Where we have caused pain, we need forgiveness. Where we harbor guilt and unease, we need forgiveness. For what we know but cannot name, we need forgiveness. So, remake us. Melt us, mold us, fill us, use us, we pray. Call us and lead us where you would have us go. Through Jesus Christ our Lord we pray. Amen.

 

THE KYRIE  (Hymn 572)

Lord, have mercy upon us.

Christ, have mercy upon us.

Lord, have mercy upon us.

 

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

 

THE ASSURANCE OF PARDON

Leader: By grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing: it is the gift of God - not the result of works, so that no one might boast.

People: For we are what he has made us, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand to be our way of life.

Leader: Believe the promise of the Gospel:

People: In Jesus Christ, we are forgiven. - Ephesians 2:8-10

*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.
