We Gather In Praise

Prelude

Gathering (Unison) | Psalm 25

¹ In you, Lord my God, I put my trust. ² I trust in you; do not let
me be put to shame, nor let my enemies triumph over me. ³ No one who hopes in you will ever be put to shame, but shame will come on those who are treacherous without cause. ⁴ Show me your ways, Lord, teach me your paths. ⁵ Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long. ⁶ Remember, Lord, your great mercy and love, for they are from of old. ⁷ Do not remember the sins of my youth and my rebellious ways; according to your love remember me, for you, Lord, are good. ⁸ Good and upright is the Lord; therefore he instructs sinners in his ways. ⁹ He guides the humble in what is right and teaches them his way. 10 All the ways of the Lord are loving and faithful toward those who keep the demands of his covenant. Amen.

Prayer of Confession (unison)

God of new beginnings…..
Forgive those times when we have broken promises or missed opportunities, those times when we have been less than caring to those in need, when we have been selfish or self-righteous, when we have said things that hurt others – or not said things when we should have spoken up.  Help us to be just and kind.  Create in us a new life – a new beginning – a new heart.

Welcome

Gospel Jam: Amen | VU #652 Be Still, My Soul | VU #657 He Leadeth Me

Call To Worship (unison)

Holy God, we give you thanks
for all the ways that you illuminate our lives:
from the beam of our wisdom
that shines forth from scripture and prayer
to the occasional mountaintop experiences
where we can bask in your glory
In the sparkle of care in our loved ones’ eyes
to the bright smile of greeting from a stranger,
your love radiates out to us
Set us glow for others
with your wisdom, love, and glory. Amen

Prayer of Confession (unison)

Word of Assurance

We are judged by God’s grace,
and not by our misdeeds.
God has forgiven us.
God sets us free.
Let us turn and
live in faithfulness and courage.
Let us be God’s people.
Thanks be to God…

Life & Work of the Community Of Faith

Hearing the Good News

Prayer of Confession (unison)

Creator God, Source of all life, in you all creatures are connected and all creation redeemed and made new. Day by day you make yourself known to your people. In the beauty of the heavens we see your glory. In the bounty of the earth we know your generosity. In strength for our bodies and minds we experience your energy. Delighting in all that we have seen, known, and heard, we worship you, one God, Creator, Christ, and Spirit. Holy One, along with our praise, we offer you our confession. At times we forget what we once knew of your love. Consumed by worry, we forget to trust you. Although we know you made us for a purpose, we choose our own ways. Discouragement seeps into our hearts in the cold of winter and we do not serve you with eagerness. We fail to speak out against injustice in our community. Forgive us. Renew our energy for your purposes. Raise us up on wings of faith. May we walk by your light and not grow weary. May we run and not faint. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.

Call To Worship (unison)

Almighty and most merciful God, we give thanks that you know us and love us. Help us, through the power of your Holy Spirit, grow deeper, wider, and fuller in our knowledge and understanding of your ways. Help us, through the bestowal of your divine Wisdom, bring others closer to you and to your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, in whose name we pray. Amen.

Life & Work of the Community Of Faith

Hearing the Good News

Prayer of Confession (unison)

Loving God, you are the wisdom behind all mystery, the glory hidden in all that makes us wonder, the strength in all that nourishes. When our eyes are open and our spirits alert, we experience your glory around us. Scattered throughout the earth, smouldering deep inside us, radiating in acts of love, sparks of your glory reside. Deep is our joy each time we encounter you. So we gather in worship to express our reverence and praise. Together we celebrate the good we have experienced, knowing it all comes from your hand, Gracious God. And yet, we are strangely resistant to your grace. There are so many times we turn from you, O God. We forget that food for body and soul comes from your goodness. We focus on what troubles us and ignore the help and healing you offer. We seek wisdom and meaning in the wrong places. We confess we can be cruel, harming the earth, other living beings, and one another. Forgive us. Open our eyes to your wonder and wisdom. Give us the courage to live lives that overflow with your love for the sake of Christ who loves us. Amen.

We Gather In Praise

Prelude

Gathering (unison)

Lord Jesus Christ, you have called us together as your people. You have called us your friends and invited us to follow you. And so your church has grown from scattered homes in ancient times—to a worldwide community, embracing men and women, old and young, from many nations and cultures. In our worship today, inspire us to wonder at the miracle of your church. Help us see the privilege we share to be part of your people across the ages and across the continents. It is your love that keeps drawing us to you and to each other, and so we offer our wonder and praise with millions of people who also gather in your name this day.

Hearing the Good News

Prayer of Confession (unison)

God of all the ages, we gather in worship week by week, hoping to encounter your presence. But we confess it’s not easy to hear your voice. Sometimes we get distracted by what’s happening around us. Sometimes we get confused by conflicting views of what you expect from us. Sometimes we feel challenged and resist a new word from you. We confess it is hard to turn our lives around when we think we already know where we’re going. Lord, have mercy upon us.
