WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Psalm 72:18-19

Praise be to the LORD God,

Praise be to his glorious name forever;

Amen and Amen.

Song –

Praise to the Lord, the Almighty” by Joachim Neander

CONFESSION OF SIN –

Most merciful God,

we confess that we have sinned against you

in thought, word, and deed,

by what we have done,

and by what we have left undone.

We have not loved you with our whole heart;

we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves.

We are truly sorry and we humbly repent.

For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ,

have mercy on us and forgive us;

that we may delight in your will,

and walk in your ways,

to the glory of your Name. Amen.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Psalm 28:6-7

Praise be to the LORD,

for he has heard my cry for mercy.

The LORD is my strength and my shield;

my heart trusts in him, and I am helped.

My heart leaps for joy

and I will give thanks to him in song.
