THE GATHERING

THE PRELUDE  Pavane  Robert Elmore 

 

*THE CALL TO WORSHIP 

Leader: Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous. Praise befits the upright. 

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

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

People: For the work of the Lord is upright, and all God’s work is done in faithfulness. 

Leader: The Lord loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of the steadfast love of the Lord.

*THE PROCESSIONAL HYMN 263  Immortal, Invisible, God Only Wise  ST. DENIO 

 

THE CALL TO CONFESSION 

 

THE PRAYER OF CONFESSION 

Holy God, you have called us. You have called us to a way of life set apart from the ordinary. You have called us to be “a light to the nations.” You have called us to grateful generosity, to faithful discipleship, to holy living. Yet in our sin, we do not live out our calling. Our reasons are manifold but we cannot and need not name them all; you know our faults. Yet in faith, we ask that you would forgive us once more, and re-mind us of our holy calling, that we might show forth the light of the one who has called us out of darkness, our Lord Jesus Christ, in whose name we make our prayer, Amen. 

 

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

 

THE ASSURANCE OF PARDON 

Leader: We know that the one who raised the Lord Jesus will raise us also with Jesus, and will bring us with you into his presence. 

People: Yes, everything is for your sake, so that grace, as it extends to more and more people may increase thanksgiving, to the glory of God. 

Leader: Believe the promise of the Gospel: 

People: In Jesus Christ, we are forgiven. -2 Corinthians 4:14-15 

 

*THE CONGREGATIONAL RESPONSE (Hymn 426) 

O use me, Lord, use even me, just as thou wilt, and when, and where; Until thy blessed face I see, thy rest, thy joy, thy glory share. 

 

*THE PASSING OF THE PEACE 

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

People: And also with you.
