Welcome

 

Call To Worship

Leader: The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul;

 

People: The decrees of the Lord are sure, making wise the simple;

 

Leader: The precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart;

 

People: The commandment of the Lord is clear, enlightening the eyes;

 

Leader: The fear of the Lord is pure, enduring forever;

 

People: The ordinances of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.

 

Leader: More to be desired are they than gold, even much fine gold; sweeter also than honey, and drippings of the honeycomb.

Pastoral Prayer and Time of Silence

Affirmation of Faith - The Nicene Creed

 

We believe in one God,
the Father, the Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all that is, seen and unseen.

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
the only Son of God,
eternally begotten of the Father,
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made,
of one Being with the Father;
through him all things were made.
For us and for our salvation
     he came down from heaven,
     was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary
     and became truly human.
     For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;
     he suffered death and was buried.
     On the third day he rose again
     in accordance with the Scriptures;
     he ascended into heaven
     and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
     He will come again in glory
     to judge the living and the dead,
     and his kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son,
who with the Father and the Son
     is worshiped and glorified,
who has spoken through the prophets.
We believe in one holy catholic* and apostolic church.
We acknowledge one baptism
     for the forgiveness of sins.
We look for the resurrection of the dead,
     and the life of the world to come. Amen.

 

Response Hymn # 473 (UMH)

Lead Me, Lord

 

Invitation to the Table

 

Prayer of Confession and Assurance of Pardon 

Merciful God, we confess that we have not loved you with our whole heart. We have failed to be an obedient church. We have not done your will, we have broken your law, we have rebelled against your love, we have not loved our neighbors, and we have not heard the cry of the needy. Forgive us, we pray. Free us for joyful obedience, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

 

(A time for silent confession)

 

Pastor: Hear the good news: Christ died for us while we were yet sinners; that proves God’s love toward us. In the name of Jesus Christ, you are forgiven!

 

People: In the name of Jesus Christ, you are forgiven! All: Glory to God. Amen.

Amen.
