WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Romans 15:5-7

May the God of endurance and encouragement

grant you to live in such harmony with one another,

in accord with Christ Jesus,

that together you may with one voice

glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Therefore welcome one another

as Christ has welcomed you,

for the glory of God.

CONFESSION OF SIN – Ephesians 4:19-31

Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths,

but only such as is good for building up,

as fits the occasion,

that it may give grace to those who hear.

And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God,

by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.

Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander

be put away from you,

along with all malice.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Ephesians 4:32

Be kind to one another, tenderhearted,

forgiving one another,

as God in Christ forgave you.

PRAYER

EVERYONE:

Our Father in heaven,

hallowed be your name.

Your kingdom come,

your will be done,

on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread,

and forgive us our debts,

as we also have forgiven our debtors.

And lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil.

For yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.

Make Us One” by Twila Paris

SCRIPTURE READING – Psalm 133

A SONG OF ASCENTS. OF DAVID.

Behold, how good and pleasant it is

when brothers dwell in unity!

It is like the precious oil on the head,

running down on the beard,

on the beard of Aaron,

running down on the collar of his robes!

It is like the dew of Hermon,

which falls on the mountains of Zion!

For there the Lord has commanded the blessing,

life forevermore.
