Prelude I Just Came to Praise The Lord  Praise Band

* Call to Worship One: Praise the Lord! Many: Praise the Lord, O my soul. One: I will praise the Lord all my life. ALL: I will sing praise to my God as long as I live!

* Opening Hymn God of Grace and God of Glory  Hymn #307 (1,2,3)

Prayer of Adoration & Confession (unison)
When we hear your voice call to us O God, how can we help but answer? You lift us from places of despair, you encourage us along our way, you offer chances for new beginnings. We hear your voice in the wind and in the silence of the night, and we are thankful. In this world of noise and trouble, there can be times we can’t hear you and continue on our broken way. Our ears fail to hear, we don’t listen. We sin. By your Grace we pray to be found, to be healed, and forgiven. Let your voice be a shout! that startles us back to life, a life of joy, hope and generosity of the Spirit. We ask 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.

* Singing Gloria Patri  Hymn #581

Blessed Assurance, Jesus Is Mine  Hymn #839 (all)

Prayers of the People & Lord's Prayer
Our Father who art in Heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the Kingdom and the power and the glory, forever. Amen.

Anthem I Walked Today Where Jesus Walked  Solo by Caryl Williamson

Prayer for Illumination
Lord, open our hearts and minds by the power of your Holy Spirit, that as the Scriptures are read and your Word is proclaimed, we may hear with joy what you say to us today. Amen
