PRELUDE – “Oh! Great Is Our God” by The Sing Team

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Psalm 100

Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth!

Serve the Lord with gladness!

Come into his presence with singing!

Know that the Lord, he is God!

It is he who made us, and we are his;

we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

Enter his gates with thanksgiving,

and his courts with praise!

Give thanks to him; bless his name!

For the Lord is good;

his steadfast love endures forever,

and his faithfulness to all generations.

Song –

Come Thou Fount” by John Wyeth and Robert Robinson

CONFESSION OF SIN – from the Worship Sourcebook #51

God of everlasting love,

we confess that we have been unfaithful

to our covenant with you and with one another.

We have worshipped other gods:

money, power, greed, and convenience.

We have served our own self-interest

instead of serving only you and your people.

We have not loved our neighbor as you have commanded,

nor have we rightly loved ourselves.

CONGREGATION:

Forgive us, gracious God,

and bring us back into the fullness

of our covenant with you and one another.

Through Christ, our Lord.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Lamentations 3:22-23

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;

his mercies never come to an end;

they are new every morning.

AFFIRMATION OF FAITH – The Apostle’s Creed

We 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 Spirit,

born of the Virgin Mary,

suffered under Pontius Pilate,

was crucified, dead, and buried.

He descended into hell

and on the third day he rose again from the dead.

He ascended into heaven

and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty,

from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.

We believe in the Holy Spirit,

the holy catholic church,

the communion of saints,

the forgiveness of sins,

the resurrection of the body,

and the life everlasting. Amen.
