WE PREPARE TO WORSHIP GOD

 

“Go out into the world today and love the people you meet.
Let your presence light new light in the hearts of people”    Mother Teresa

 

PRELUDE                                                                   

WELCOME                                           

INTROIT                 

CALL TO WORSHIP (responsively, from “Guerillas of Grace” by Ted Loder) 

            Praise be to you, O Lord, who spins the stars across the wondrous heavens and stretches out the seas.

           Who lifts the dawn into place and sets boundaries for night.

           Who awes the earth with storms and gentles it with green.

           Who gives everything a season and breathes life and love into the dust of me.

            Praise to God in all things for all things!

           Praise be to God!

 

*HYMN:  #14   “For the Beauty of the Earth”   Glory to God Hymnal

PRAYER OF INVOCATION

PRAYER OF CONFESSION (in unison)

Eternal God, you show us your grace and love every day.  You have called us to be your people and have equipped each of us with special gifts for ministry.  We praise you in the assembly of your people but, as we venture into the world, we fall silent, not at all eager to tell others about your love for all people.  We fail to be your witnesses in our community.  Forgive our lack of zeal.  Inspire us through your Holy Spirit to not only recognize your love and give you thanks but also to share this good news with others.  In the strong name of Jesus Christ, we pray…

Silent prayers of confession

AN AFFIRMATION OF FAITH (in unison)

In communal and personal worship, God calls people to faith and discipleship.  Those responding to this call offer themselves and the gifts which God has given them to be used in the life of the community of faith for ministries to the world and to one another.  (from “The Directory for Worship”)

Children are especially important to this congregation.  We don’t mind their minor disruptions and movements.  If your child becomes more active than is comfortable for you or those around you, we have a nursery located in the lower level where the worship service can still be heard.
