Call to Worship
Open the gates of the city!
Wake up you people!
That the King of Glory may enter.

Who is the King of Glory?
The LORD strong and mighty;
the LORD mighty in battle.

Wake up everyone in the city
And throw open your doors
That the King of Glory may enter.

Who is the King of Glory?
The Lord of Heaven’s Armies.
He is the King of glory.
— From Psalm 24:7-10

Confession
Eternal God, you do not change.
You have revealed yourself to us in your Word.
You call us to worship you in spirit and in truth.
But we confess that we often worship
not your true self but who we wish you to be.

We too often ask you to bless what we do
rather than seeking to do what you bless.
Forgive us for seeking concessions
when we should be seeking guidance.

Forgive us when our worship shapes you into what we want
instead of shaping us into what you want.
Help us to meet you here, that we might bow
before your unspeakable majesty
and so live for you now and ever, in Christ.
Amen.

Assurance
For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

Benediction
God blessed Abram and called him into a foreign country
Where he called upon the name of the lord
Likewise, go now to the place where you live, work, and worship
With the blessing of the Father. Call upon his name and bless all who you meet.
Amen.
