* Call to Worship One: Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord; Many: let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation. One: Let us come before him with thanksgiving ALL: and extol him with music and song.

* Opening Hymn Lead On, O King Eternal  Hymn #269 (all)

Prayer of Adoration & Confession (unison)
The glory of your Spring is all around us, O God. We can see the splendor of the mountains, and feel the renewal of life everywhere. There is a sense of expectation and wonder, a memory of hope to come, a memory that has followed us since childhood. We are deeply thankful for the gift of life, and Christ's victory over death. We are reminded of our human nature, and our need to be forgiven for wrongs done. In our comfort we might take the Cross for granted, as if forgiveness is needed by others but not by us. But we know this is not true, and come to you asking union with this Lenten season, renewal of our troubled hearts, and freedom from the distraction of spiritual winters. We come to you, the Way, a Truth and Light. In Jesus' name, Amen.

(A moment for silent reflection)

Assurance of Pardon
Who is in a position to condemn? Only Christ, and Christ died for us, was risen for us, and reigns in power over us, Sisters and brothers hear this good news. Through Christ we are forgiven and reconciled with the Creator of all.

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