Prelude Special Music  Praise Band

* Call to Worship Leader: The Lord is near! People: Let us stand firm in the Lord. Leader: The Lord is near! People: Let us replace fear and worry with prayer and peace. Leader: The Lord is near! People: Let us unite that we might love God with all our being and neighbors as ourselves. All: And the God of peace will guard our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

* Opening Hymn Christ Whose Glory Fills the Skies  Hymn #662 (all)

Prayer of Adoration & Confession (unison)
Lord we are a stiff-necked people. If things are not done in our favor, at our timing, for our good pleasure, then it must be wrong. It is out of our fear, impatience and stubbornness that we make really bad decisions; that not only hurts us but others and most importantly our relationship with you. It is in these moments of clarity that we can see clearly your love and your ultimate plan for us and our journeys through the wilderness. Please be patient with us and give us the assurance of your continued presence, even when we do not deserve it.

(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.

* Singing Gloria Patri  Hymn #623

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

Anthem Welcomed Home Again  Choir
