*THE CALL TO WORSHIP 

Leader: O Lord, let it be known today that you are our God and we are your people. 

People: Answer us, O Lord, answer us so we may know that you are God. 

Leader: Turn our wandering hearts back to you. Fall on us, O Lord. Take our hearts, our lives, our all.

THE CALL TO CONFESSION 

 

THE PRAYER OF CONFESSION 

Eternal and merciful God, out of an abundance of love you created all the earth. Through your grace you fashioned us in your very image. Your works in our lives are mighty and marvelous. Yet sin blinds us to the fullness of your glory in our lives. We worry and we stress. We make it all about us. We forget to bless you and give you thanks. We often do not think of you as we make our plans for the future. Help us to remember at all times we are disciples of Jesus. You alone are Lord of our lives. You judge us mercifully and you shower us with grace. We give you thanks. Amen. 

 

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

 

THE ASSURANCE OF PARDON 

Leader: Grace to you and peace from God. Grace to you and peace from Jesus Christ. 

People: The Lord Jesus Christ gave himself for our sins to set us free from evil. 

Leader: This is the will of our God, to whom be the glory forever and ever. Believe the good news of the gospel. 

People: In Jesus Christ, we are forgiven. Amen -Galatians 1:3-5 

 

*THE CONGREGATIONAL RESPONSE (Hymn 210) 

Our God, our help in ages past, our hope for years to come, be thou our guard while life shall last, and our eternal home.

THE ANTHEM  O Come, Let Us Sing to the Lord!  Louis Harris 

O come, let us sing to the Lord, let us make a joyful noise to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving and make a joyful noise with the psalms. For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods. In His hands are the deep, deep places of the earth; the strength of the hills is also His. The sea is His and He made it, and His hands formed the dry land. 

(Psalm 95:1-6)

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 PASTORAL PRAYER 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.
