Sharing Our Joys and Concerns

 

* Call to Worship       taken from Psalm 5      (responsively)

Give ear to our words, O Lord; consider our groaning.

Give attention to the sound of our cry, our King and our God, for to You do we pray.

Lord, in the morning You hear our voice;

in the morning we prepare a sacrifice for You and watch.

For You are not a God who delights in wickedness; evil may not dwell with You.

The boastful shall not stand before Your eyes; You hate all evildoers.

You destroy those who speak lies;

the Lord abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful man.

But we, through the abundance of Your steadfast love, will enter Your house.

We will bow down toward Your holy temple in the fear of You.

Lead us, O Lord, in Your righteousness because of our enemies;

make Your way straight before us.

LET US WORSHIP GOD!!

 

* Affirmation of Faith        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.                                           *universal

Invitation to Confession

 

Admitting Our Sin to God  

Righteous God, You have crowned Jesus Christ as Lord of all. We confess that we have not bowed before Him, and are slow to acknowledge His rule. We give allegiance to the powers of this world and fail to be governed by love and justice. In Your mercy, forgive us. Raise us up to acclaim Him as Ruler of all, that we may be loyal ambassadors, obeying the commands of our Lord Jesus Christ. (time of silent, personal confession)      AMEN

 

Assurance of Pardon     

Leader  . . . Friends, believe the Good News of the Gospel! 

ALL:           In Jesus Christ we are forgiven

 

* Responding with Praise                     Gloria Patri                    Blue Book # 579

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost. As it was in the beginning; is now and ever shall be. World without end, Amen! Amen!

 

Time with Young Disciples

 

Prayers of the People and the Lords 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 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, for ever.  AMEN.
