Prelude Special Music  Praise Band

* Call to Worship One: We gather in this house of peace; Many: Our hearts long for God’s presence and wisdom. One: May our time together fill us with joy and hope; ALL: And our songs of praise be heard by all the nations!

* Opening Hymn Holy, Holy, Holy! Lord God Almighty!  Hymn #1 (all)

Prayer of Adoration & Confession (unison)
We live in a world of such possibilities, a world made by you, Creator of all. We live in a world of beauty because of your attention, to love, grace, color and light. Through our faith in you our path becomes straight, for your hand prepares the way before us. You never fail and we praise you, O God, and give thanks! Sometimes, though, we fail. We think beauty is found in riches, in the glitter of gold, and we keep it for ourselves. We become afraid that others will steal it, and so we close others off. Their suffering or need is hidden from us by our own doing. Forgive us, please forgive us! Reveal to our hearts the true treasure revealed in Christ, a treasure to be shared as the love we have received, offering hope, care and dignity to every soul. We ask these things in Jesus’ name. 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.

For thine is the Kingdom and the power and the glory, forever. Amen.
