*THE PROCESSIONAL HYMN 551  Come, Ye Thankful People, Come  ST. GEORGE’S WINDSOR 

 

THE CALL TO CONFESSION 

 

THE PRAYER OF CONFESSION 

Merciful God, our sin is before us. Your way for us is clear: we are to love you with all our hearts, souls, minds and strength, and our neighbors as ourselves. Who among us may claim such love? In this calling, we have fallen short. We need reconciliation. And yet, we remember as well that our calling to live lives of humanity and kindness does not fail, and so we ask once more that you would strengthen us in discipleship, guide us, and give us the courage to live as you have called us. We ask this in the name of Jesus, and for his sake. Amen. 

 

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

 

THE ASSURANCE OF PARDON 

Leader: Should we continue in sin in order that grace may abound? 

People: By no means! How can we who died to sin go on living in it? 

Leader: Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? 

People: Therefore we have been buried with him by baptism into death, so that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life. 

Leader: Believe the promise of the gospel: 

People: In Jesus Christ, we are forgiven. - Romans 6:1-4 

 

THE CONGREGATIONAL RESPONSE (Hymn 555) 

O may this bounteous God through all our life be near us, with ever joyful hearts and blessed peace to cheer us; and keep us in God’s grace, and guide us when perplexed, and free us from all ills in this world and the next. 

 

*THE PEACE OF CHRIST 

Leader: The peace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with you all! 

People: And also with you.
