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.

 

* Prayer of Invocation

 

*Hymn of Adoration       “The King of Love My Shepherd Is”          Red Book #683

 

Invitation to Confession

 

Admitting Our Sin to God  

God of all creation, we all like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way. We have followed the call of other shepherds. We have played the goat instead of living like sheep. We have grazed in the pastures of sin, injustice and greed. We are lost without our Shepherd. O, Thou Great Shepherd of the sheep, hear our confession and pleas for mercy. Come and find us, Your wandering sheep, and lead us back to Thy true flock, and the safety of our appointed fold. We pray in the name of the Good Shepherd, Christ the Lord.      (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 Lord’s 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.
