Prelude        

Ringing the Chimes

Call to Worship                                                                         

One: Our God is majestic in holiness, awesome in splendor, and worthy of our highest praise.

People: Who is like the Lord?

One: Our God blew back the waters, prepared a path through the sea, and appeared as a pillar of fire to light the pilgrim way.

People: Who is like the Lord?

One: The Lord is our strength and our salvation.

People: Let us sing to the Lord who triumphs gloriously!

Hymn                                        

We are called to confess

As loving parents have compassion for their children, God has compassion for us. Confident in God’s love, let us confess our sins.

We confess our sins to God and one another (Unison)

Loving God, we confess that we have failed to live in harmony with our sisters and brothers. We have been self-righteous in our attitudes, closed-minded in our beliefs, and judgmental in our opinions. We have shunned those whose ways we do not understand, and we have despised those who do not endorse our convictions. Forgive our sins of discord and conceit, and heal our divisiveness and quarreling. Help us to be charitable in our regard for others that we may dwell in peace with Christ, who is Lord of all. Amen.

We receive the assurance of pardon

Friends, the Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. In the name of Jesus Christ, we are forgiven.

Glori Patri

We Pray Together, the Prayer of the Day (Unison)

God, our source and our salvation, in love you made us and by love you have redeemed us. Make your love for us bear fruit in our forgiveness of others, that in this life we may know your all-embracing compassion and in the world to come receive the everlasting joy of fellowship you share with your Son, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on Earth as it is in heaven.

For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.
