THE ANNOUNCEMENTS

THE CALL TO WORSHIP

Lord God, our hope, you are the trustworthy guide of all your people. We are glad to be in relationship with you. Let us remember that you are the source and goal of our lives. Help us to turn away from the empty promises and to live in the fullness of your gospel. Send your Holy Spirit to bring perspective on our daily actions as we work for your Kingdom. We ask this through Christ, our risen Lord. Amen.

*HYMN NO. 46 “Fairest Lord Jesus”

*PRAYER OF CONFESSION

Holy One, what a blessing and privilege we share here in this sacred space and among this loving community. But, like Jonah, we sometimes are jealous of what we share here. We know that others are longing and thirsting for what we know and experience. Forgive us our reluctance to open our doors, open our hearts to others; some like us, some not. We repent of our hesitations and unwillingness to witness to those we have considered strangers and even enemies for fear they just might become friends. Amen.

*ASSURANCE OF PARDON

Leader: The one who calls us to this place calls us to reconciliation through grace. God will not deny a repentant heart or an open spirit. Know that we are forgiven and walk in the new way that is made known to us in God’s love.

People: Amen
