THE GATHERING 

Leader: The Lord be with you. 

People: And also with you. 

 

THE PRELUDE  Adagio (from Chorale No. 3)  César Franck 

 

*THE CALL TO WORSHIP 

Leader: Come let us praise God together! 

People: For our God is the Maker of the heavens and the earth. 

Leader: Our God keeps every promise, and remains faithful forever. 

People: Our God reigns - today, tomorrow, and forever. - Psalm 146

THE CALL TO CONFESSION 

 

THE PRAYER OF CONFESSION 

Almighty God, 

You love us, but we do not always love You; 

You call, but we do not always listened. 

Wrapped up in our own concerns, we walk away from neighbors in need. 

We go along with evil, with pride, quarrelling, and divisiveness. 

Holy God, help us to face up to ourselves, 

so that, as You move toward us in mercy, 

we may repent, turn to you, and receive mercy; 

through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

 

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

 

THE ASSURANCE OF PARDON 

Leader: Hear the good news! Who is in a position to condemn? 

Only Christ, and Christ died for us, Christ rose for us, 

Christ reigns in power for us, Christ prays for us. 

Believe the good news of the Gospel, in Jesus Christ we are forgiven. 

Be at peace. 

People: Amen. 

 

*THE CONGREGATIONAL RESPONSE  (Hymn 280) 

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me! 

I once was lost, but now am found, was blind, but now I see. 

 

*THE PASSING OF THE PEACE 

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

People: And also with you.
