Call to Worship

 

Come and worship,

everyone on earth,

everywhere the sun shines,

let’s praise God together!

 

For listening when we call,

answering our prayers,

forgiving our mistakes,

and providing what we need:

let’s praise God together!

 

Come and worship,

everyone on earth,

everywhere the sun shines,

let’s praise God together!

 

Hymn    Blessed Jesus, at Your Word                    454

 

Prayer of Confession

 

The Divine Gardener cannot sow seeds of justice and peace

where there is nothing but hearts of dry, hard rocks. 

We confess that our hearts may need tilling

and the digging out of the deeply rooted sins

that crowd out seedlings planted with divine compassion.

 

God of steadfast love,

you change bitter tears of remorseful hearts

with raindrops of mercy,

Now let us germinate a new life, growing with integrity!

 

God of steadfast love,

you change the cold shame of contrite hearts

with sunrays of mercy

Now let us sprout a new life, growing with honesty!

 

God of steadfast love,

you change the stony edges of repentant hearts

into landscapes of mercy,

Now let us branch out into new life, growing with generosity!

 

Silent Prayer

 

Assurance of Pardon

 

Passing the Peace

   Let us greet each other saying:

                              ‘May the Peace of Christ be with you’          

Gloria

 

Prayer of Illumination

 

Unison Affirmation of Faith

Jesus stays with us in the Spirit,
who renews our hearts,
moves us to faith,
leads us in the truth,
stands by us in our need,
and makes our obedience fresh and vibrant.
The Spirit's gifts are here to stay
in rich variety—fitting responses to timely needs.
We thankfully see each other
as gifted members of the fellowship
which delights in the creative Spirit's work.
He gives more than enough to each believer
for God's praise and our neighbor's welfare.
