|* Call to Worship One: Praise the Lord, O my soul; Many: all my inmost being, praise his holy name. One: Praise the Lord, O my soul, Many: The Lord is compassionate and gracious. One: Great is Gods love; ALL: Praise The Lord, O my soul!|

|Prayer of Adoration & Confession (unison)|
You are the Holy One, Creator of all. Over the ages you have brought light from darkness, lifted life from dust, and poured color over the earth. Your works are beautiful, and our blessings without number. To us you gave responsibility for creation and for one other, a glorious trust. We should rejoice, but so often we take this gift for granted. Help us to honor your trust and to bless each life. Forgive us when we destroy without thought, especially pain caused to those less fortunate. Even as we receive mercy, let us be merciful, and to love as you love us. Always we pray in Jesus Christ, Amen.
|(A moment for silent reflection)|
|Assurance of Pardon|
Hear the Good News! Who is in a position to condemn? Only Christ, and Christ died for us, Christ rose for us, Christ reigns in power for us, Christ prays for us.
Anyone who is in Christ is a new creation. The old life has gone; a new life has begun. Know you are forgiven and be at peace. Amen.
