PRELUDE – “Carried to the Table” by Leeland

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Rev. 5:11-13

“Hear this call to worship from Rev. 5:11-13”

Then I looked and heard the voice of many angels, numbering thousands upon thousands, and ten thousand times ten thousand. They encircled the throne and the living creatures and the elders. In a loud voice they were saying:

“Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain,
    to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength
    and honor and glory and praise!”

 Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, saying:

“To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb
    be praise and honor and glory and power,
for ever and ever!”

Holy Is the Lord” by Chris Tomlin and Louie Giglio

CONFESSION OF SIN – Read Out Loud Together

Father in heaven, we thank you for the freedom you have given us

 through the life, death and resurrection of your Son. 

But we confess today that we often live like slaves. 

Instead of living like you delight in us, we avoid you in shame and guilt.

 Instead of receiving your favor as a gift, we try to earn it with our efforts.

 Instead of accepting your freedom, we prefer our chains.

 Instead of pursuing your purposes, we cling to our short-sighted agendas. 

Forgive us. Embrace us. Cleanse us. Heal us. 

We ask this in Jesus name. 

Amen.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – 

“Hear this assurance of pardon from Matt. 11:28-30”

Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 

 Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me,

for I am gentle and lowly in heart, 

and you will find rest for your souls. 

 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
