Pastoral Greeting, Rev. Black

*The Call to Worship, Mr. Brent Stone

Leader: Holy One, you have been our dwelling place in all generations;

People: you have been our home throughout all the ages.

Leader: You were there before the world was made and will be forever.

People: From everlasting to everlasting you are God.

*Hymn #62 "We Praise Thee, O God, Our Redeemer"

*Call to Confession:

God's love has destined us not for wrath, but rather for salvation. Therefore, let us confess our sin to the One who is eager to save.

*The Prayer of Confession, In Unison

Loving God, we confess that we have sinned against you by not honoring you or one another. When we place our iniquities before you, it is your love that sheds light on our wayward deeds. As we stand in awe of your constancy for us, we ask your forgiveness through the mercy of Christ, in whose name we pray. Amen.

*Assurance of Pardon:

Sisters and brothers, when we acknowledge our human limitations and turn to depend upon our everlasting God, we grow wise in heart to God's commands. You are freed to love another, for your sins are forgiven by the mercy of Christ.

People: Thanks be to God!

*The Gloria, Hymnbook pg. 108, In Unison

The Passing of the Peace

In the freedom of love for one another, let us share Christ's peace. The Peace of Christ be with you, and also with you.

The Offertory

In giving to God, we grow closer to God. Let us offer our life and labor to the One who draws near and freely gives the treasure of eternal life in Christ.
