Call to Worship
Let us worship God, our light and our salvation. 

The Lord is the stronghold of our lives.
We desire to live in God’s house
and to seek God in his holy temple.
We have come with shouts of joy,
to sing and to make music to the Lord.
Let us worship God in spirit and in truth.


Teach us your ways and make straight our paths 
in this hour of worship and always.
Based on Psalm 27, John 4:23

Confession of Sin
Merciful God,

we confess that we have sinned against you 
in thought, word, and deed,
by what we have done,
and by what we have left undone.
We have not loved you
with our whole heart and mind and strength.

We have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. 
In your mercy forgive what we have been, help us amend what we are,
and direct what we shall be,
so that we may delight in your will and walk in your ways,
to the glory of your holy name. Through Christ, our Lord. Amen.

My God (Psalm 54)

Assurance of Pardon
We know that our old sinful selves were crucified with Christ so that sin might lose its power in our lives.
We are no longer slaves to sin. For when we died with Christ we were set free from the power of sin.
–Romans 6:6-7

Thanks be to God!

The LORD bless you and keep you;

the LORD make his face to shine upon you
and be gracious to you;
the LORD turn his face toward you
and give you peace.

Peace be with you all
And also with you!
