WELCOME and ANNOUNCEMENTS
CALL TO WORSHIP (Adapted from Psalm 25)
Leader: To you, O LORD, I lift up my soul. PEOPLE: Make me to know your ways, O LORD; teach me your paths. Leader: Lead me in your truth, and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all day long. PEOPLE: Be mindful of your mercy, O LORD, and of your steadfast love, for they have been from of old. Leader: According to your steadfast love remember me, for your goodness' sake. PEOPLE: Good and upright is the LORD; therefore he instructs sinners in the way. Leader: He leads the humble in what is right, and teaches the humble his way. PEOPLE: All the paths of the LORD are steadfast love and faithfulness, for those who keep his covenant and his decrees.
God of grace and infinite goodness, you feed us with the bread of life, and you sustain us with the peace that sets our longing hearts at rest. You fill our cup with kindness, and it overflows with the bounty of your all-encompassing care. You chose to dwell among us and in us through Jesus and we praise and adore you in his name, Amen.
**OPENING HYMN “Like a River Glorious” Red #594
CALL TO CONFESSION
We struggle, we stumble, we fall, and each and every time you pick us up again, setting us on the path of your word and your promise. Let us confess our sins together.
PRAYER OF CONFESSION
Merciful God, we confess that we do not live lives in imitation of you and Christ. We are not always kind, or tenderhearted, or forgiving or loving. Forgive us, we pray, and implant your spirit in our hearts that we should do naturally what is godly in every way. And may our actions reflect the eternal life promised by Jesus Christ. Amen.
(A moment for silent personal confession)
ASSURANCE OF FORGIVENESS
All who come to God in Christ receive his mercy and his blessing. By the Good News of God’s love, we are forgiven.

PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE & THE LORD’S PRAYER
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
Let us all consider what we have been blessed with and how we can best share it with those in greater need, even as we gift our church for its greater work to the Glory of God and the undying love of Jesus.
