*CALL TO WORSHIP

(based on Psalm 13)

We’ve come to worship,

to sing and pray and hear God’s Word, because:

God’s love lasts forever!

Even when God seems far away, we know:

God’s love lasts forever!

Even when nothing is going right, and we’re ready to give up, we know:

God’s love lasts forever!

When people treat us badly, we know:

God’s love lasts forever!

When we’re all alone,

and we feel like no one loves us, we know:

God’s love lasts forever!

Let’s worship God together!

OPENING PRAYER

God of grace,

you have brought us from slavery to freedom,

from despair to hope,

from death to life!

Holy is your name!

We gather in your presence with gratitude and praise

for all that You have done for us.

May the presence of your Holy Spirit inspire our worship.

May our words and music,

our thoughts and prayers,

even our very lives,

bring honor and glory to you.

This we pray in the name of Jesus Christ,

whose death and resurrection have brought us everlasting life.

Amen.

CALL TO CONFESSION

SILENT PRAYER OF CONFESSION

CORPORATE PRAYER OF CONFESSION

God, we confess that we have sinned in your sight.

Despite our best efforts and intentions,

we have failed to consistently live in ways

that bring honor to your name.

Forgive us.

Through the grace of Jesus Christ

and the power of the Holy Spirit,

set us free from the grip of sin—

from attitudes and actions that do not lead to life.

We pray in the name of Jesus Christ,

Amen.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON

*PASSING OF THE PEACE

(Worshipers are invited to share the peace of Christ with those worshiping around them.)

The peace of the risen Christ be with you.

And also with you.

THE WORD
