Prelude A Child Is Born  Alex Danson

Call to Worship (Responsive) Elder Kay Chabot
One: Exalt the Almighty
and worship at God

Opening Hymn All Creatures of Our God and King  Hymn #15

Prayer of Adoration & Confession (Responsive) Elder Kay Chabot
One: When we stand in the presence of the Holy One,
we recognize the ways our lives fall short of the glory of God.
But, still, God draws near to us
in mercy and in grace.
Therefore, with confidence,
let us present our whole selves before the Lord.

All: Living Lord,
in you we live and move and have our being.
You call us to give all that we are
and all that we have
in service to Christ.
But we hold tightly to our treasure,
afraid we will not have enough for ourselves,
and hold back our talents,
afraid these gifts will not be enough.
God, unclench our fists
and help us to give fully and freely
so that, in all things,
we might serve and glorify you.

(A moment for silent reflection)

Assurance of Forgiveness (Responsive) Elder Kay Chabot
One: I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, says the Lord,
and I will show mercy on whom I will show mercy.
Take heart, for the Lord chooses to be gracious to us;
indeed, we have found favor in God,hymnal,purpose,dir_listID,Addl_Instr_PDF FROM pspc_music WHERE fabrik_internal_id=1919 FOR UPDATE
