WE PREPARE TO WORSHIP GOD

 

“Remember that a person’s name is to that person, the sweetest and most important sound in any language.”  -- Dale Carnegie

 

PRELUDE                                                                  

WELCOME                                           

INTROIT                 

CALL TO WORSHIP (responsively, from Psalm 29) 

           The voice of the Lord is heard on the seas.

           The Glorious God thunders and God’s voice echoes over the water.

           The voice of the Lord is heard in all its might and majesty.

           Praise God’s glory and power!

           The Lord gives strength to the people.

           God blesses them with peace.

*HYMN:  #611 “Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee”        Glory to God Hymnal

PRAYER OF INVOCATION

PRAYER OF CONFESSION (in unison)

Most merciful God, in baptism you promise forgiveness and new life, making us part of the body of Christ.  We confess that we remain occupied with ourselves, separated from our brothers and sisters in Christ.  We cling to destructive habits, hold grudges, and are reluctant to come together.  We allow the past to hold us hostage.  In your loving kindness, free us of our sin.  Remind us of the promises you make in baptism so that we may arise

Silent prayers of confession

ASSURANCE OF PARDON

*GLORIA PATRI: Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost; as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. Amen.

 

WE LISTEN TO GOD’S WORD

*HYMN:  #488 “I Was There to Hear Your Borning Cry”                    Glory to God Hymnal

AN AFFIRMATION OF FAITH (in unison)

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, creator of heaven and earth.  I believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried.  He descended to the dead.  On the third day he rose again, he ascended into heaven.  He is seated at the right hand of the Father, and he will come to judge the living and the dead.  I 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.  (The Apostles’ Creed)

Gracious and Loving God, everything we have to offer is a gift.  Bless and approve our offering.  Let it stand as a sign to us and to the whole world of your constant willingness to shower us with everything we need.  Amen.

*Those who are able may stand

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.
