We Gather In Praise

Prelude

Welcome

Gospel Jam: Amen | VU #365 Jesus Loves Me | VU 561 Take Up Your Cross

Call to Worship (unison)

In the name of the Creator, who loves us, we open our hearts.  In the name of Jesus Christ, who gathers us, we open our minds. In the name of the Holy Spirit, who stirs our imaginations, we open our doors to the God
who dwells among us. 

Prayer of Confession (responsive)

Let us confess our shortcomings, recalling the words of  Christ: Jesus said: “peace be with you”
ALL: Yet sometimes we sow discord, neglecting to make peace with our sisters and brothers
Jesus said, “As God has sent me, so I send you.”
ALL: Yet sometimes we refuse to go, fearing to follow unknown paths of faith.
Jesus said, “Receive the Holy Spirit.”
ALL: But we turn away, rejecting the gifts of the Spirit.

      (Take a moment in silence to reflect)

ALL: Forgive us, blessed God in the name of Jesus Christ we pray.  Amen

Word of Assurance (unison)

Jesus did not just die for the beautiful dressed people that sit in church every Sunday and read their bibles every day. He died for you who cries at night and wakes up too late for church and makes unforgivable mistakes and goes weeks without thanking him. Don’t forget that.  Jesus loves all…..

We Gather In Praise

Prelude

Gathering (unison)

Living God, from you comes vitality, love and joy. Your peace is our companion, your love is our strength, your Son is our hope. In even our darkest moments, your presence brings comfort. Hidden deep in the soil of life, your Spirit nurtures tiny seeds of purpose and potential to surprise us with new life. Like the earth beginning to bloom around us, so your kingdom unfolds to surprise us with new possibilities. We bring you our prayers and praise this day, trusting that your Spirit will bring us the gifts we need to serve you in faithfulness, renewed by your love, through Christ our Lord. AMEN

Welcome

All: Let us praise God’s holy name together. AMEN

Life & Work of the Community Of Faith
 
Prayer of Confession (unison)

Living, loving God, as we watch growth in our gardens and in the children around us, we confess we often resist growth and change as we grow older. We form ideas and opinions about many things—and cling to them. We think we already know what you desire from us and fear new insights and new directions. Forgive us for thinking we already know it all. Forgive us for blocking out the concerns and commitments of those who differ with us. Open our eyes, our ears and our hearts to signs of new life. Grant us faith like the mustard seed, so small and insignificant on its own, yet able to grow with your blessing to become a mighty sign of your lively kingdom among us. Amen.

We Gather In Praise

Prelude

Welcome

Gospel Jam: Amen | VU #226 For the Beauty of the Earth  | VU #624 Give Us To Laughter

Call to Worship (responsvie)

In the majesty of the mountain and the thunder of a waterfall
we can see God’s glory
In the call of the loon and the reflection of trees in still waters
we can see God’s mercy
In the rush of the river and the soaring of the eagle
we can see the Spirit’s power
So we come to worship the One who has the power to grant us
mercy and forgiveness and lift us to heights of glory
We come to give God thanks and praise and to offer ourselves as God’s faithful servants.

Prayer of Confession (unison)

God we are your people, yet, too often, we in the Christian faith have not witnessed to the grace you share with us. We have judged others in your name because we did not care for them. We found excuses to reject those who were not like us by declaring wrongly they were not like you. God, forgive us and open our hearts to your grace so we may love others as you love all of us.  Amens

Word of Assurance (unison)

God says…I have called you by name; you are mine.
Even when we don’t claim God – God claims us.
We belong to God – and are loved into completeness.
Let us open our hearts to the love and grace of God.

Life & Work of the Community Of Faith
 
Prayer of Confession (unison)

Holy and Healing God, slow to anger and swift to forgive, you have shown us the depth of your love day by day, yet we are reluctant to love others even a little. You have shown us compassion and forgiveness, yet we turn away from one another for even small slights. We save our concern for those most like us. Forgive us. Create in us clean hearts and a desire to begin again with you and with one another. Give us the courage to forgive each other and know your healing grace. Amen.
