Prelude Higher Ground  Praise Band

* Call to Worship One: Let us give thanks for this day of grace and beauty. Many: We come with hearts both humble and glad. One: How do we come before our God? ALL: We come singing songs of praise and glory!

* Opening Hymn Come, Christians Join to Sing  Hymn #267 (all)

Prayer of Adoration & Confession (unison)
Lord, you have given us the sun and the stars. We are rich beyond measure, not by the wealth of the earth, but by your love and grace. We are born, we grow, we live our lives. Each breath is a gift because we can’t know tomorrow, and we give thanks upon thanks for each new day, every new friend, one moment of joy. Yet, in our humanity, we sin. We harm ourselves and feel separated from you. We do not trust your love. Help us, O God, to understand your complete love and forgiveness! Let us realize the joy of the fullness of your grace! For you are constant and eternal, and we and we ask with confidence, in Christ’s 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

In My Life (Lord, Be Glorified)  Hymn #468 (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 Because He Lives  solo by Caryl Williamson

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
