Call to Worship
Clap your hands, all you peoples;
shout to God with loud songs of joy.
For the LORD, the Most High, is awesome,
a great king over all the earth.
God has gone up with a shout,
the LORD with the sound of a trumpet.
Sing praises to God, sing praises;
sing praises to our King, sing praises.
—Psalm 47:1-2, 5-6
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.
If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation.
The old life has ended and a new one has begun!
All this is a gift from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting people’s sins against them.
And he put us in charge of this message of reconciliation.
We are ambassadors for Christ, God is making his case through us.
We plead with you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
— From 2 Corinthians 5:17-21
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
