PRELUDE – “Children of the Living God” by Fernando Ortega

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Isaiah 48:12-14a

Listen to me, O Jacob,

and Israel, whom I called!

I am he; I am the first,

and I am the last.

My hand laid the foundation of the earth,

and my right hand spread out the heavens;

when I call to them,

they stand forth together.

Assemble, all of you, and listen!

CONFESSION OF SIN

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Mark 2:5; Luke 7:48

Your sins are forgiven!

AFFIRMATION OF FAITH – The Apostle’s Creed

EVERYONE:

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 to 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 the saints,

the forgiveness of sins,

the resurrection of the body,

and the life everlasting.

Amen.

CHILDREN’S BLESSING & DISMISSAL – Psalm 1:3

In all that he does, he prospers.
