Sharing Our Joys and Concerns

 

* Call to Worship     

 

* Affirmation of Faith        “The Apostle’s 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.

Invitation to Confession

 

Admitting Our Sin to God   

O God in Heaven, have mercy upon us and forgive us for we have put other persons or things before You. We have followed our own hearts instead Your commands. We have taken what is not ours. We have not always told the truth. We have chosen anger rather than love. We have put ourselves ahead of others who are more worthy and deserving. We have betrayed, denied, and forsaken the Lord Who has redeemed us. But You, O God, know all of this better than we know our­selves. We confess it all in the name of Jesus, and pray for You to find us where we are, remake and restore us for the sake of His work on the cross.    (silent, personal confession)  AMEN
