CALL TO WORSHIP (Adapted from Psalm 98)

Leader: O sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous things. 

PEOPLE: The Lord has made known his victory; he has revealed his vindication in the sight of the nations. 

Leader: He has remembered his steadfast love and faithfulness to the house of Israel. 

PEOPLE: All the ends of the earth have seen the victory of our God.

Leader: Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth; break forth into joyous song and sing praises. 

PEOPLE: Make praises to the Lord with the lyre, with and the sound of melody.

Leader: With trumpets and the sound of the horn

ALL: make a joyful noise before the King, the Lord.

 

INVOCATION

Parent of us all, we gather in your name to celebrate with music, psalms, and song, showing your gifts to us, your children in this world and in all those worlds to come. Smile upon us with joy and fellowship. Amen.

 

CALL TO CONFESSION

Despite our best intentions and deepest resolutions, dear Lord, we still fail to live up to your wishes and commandments. Let us confess our sins together.

 

PRAYER OF CONFESSION

Eternal God, our judge and redeemer, we confess that we have tried to hide from you, for we have done wrong. We have lived for ourselves, and apart from you. We have turned from our neighbors and refused to bear the burdens of others. We have ignored the pain of the world, and passed by the hungry, the poor, and the oppressed. In your great mercy forgive our sins and free us from selfishness, that we may choose your will and obey your commandments, through Jesus Christ our Savior. Amen.

 

(moment for silent personal confession)

 

ASSURANCE OF FORGIVENESS

Brothers and sisters, know that in the Love of God and the Good News of the Gospels we are forgiven. Amen

 

**HYMN OF PRAISE             “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands”                    Red #518

 

PRAYER FOR ILLUMINATION

Gracious God, as we turn to your Word for us, may the Spirit of God rest upon us. Help us to be steadfast in our hearing, in our speaking, in our believing, and in our living. Amen

PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE

And Lord we pray for those in our own hearts whose names you already know, for their own healing and comfort, in your name and that of our redeemer Jesus Christ, who taught to pray, saying:

 

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 us 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 forever. Amen

 

OUR TITHES AND OFFERINGS 

We can hoard the gifts with which you bless us, God of generosity, or we can share them with others.  May what we offer in these moments be the very blessing, the very hope, the very peace others need.  This we pray in the name of Jesus.  Amen.
