Prelude There is a Fountain  Praise Band

* Call to Worship One: Make a joyful noise, all the earth; Many: Fill our hearts with gladness! One: Come before God with joyful songs; ALL: Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise!

* Opening Hymn For the Beauty of the Earth  Hymn #14 (all)

Prayer of Adoration & Confession (unison)
God of grace and glory, we look towards your heavens with awe, and are amazed at the beauty of Creation! Who are we to deserve such wonders? We are blessed to be here, in this place, surrounded by hearts that seek your voice, and when we sing, it is out of our love for you and hope in you. We give thanks, Holy One. We come, too, with hearts heavy from work and worry. In the busyness of our lives we look forward to time for ourselves, forgetting that even a moment spent helping someone else through a call or a visit can mean the world to another. Help us to remember the greater wealth of giving of ourselves and bringing a smile to a friend or a stranger. Lead us in your Way, we pray, in the name of the Christ. 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.

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.
