Call to Worship
This is the day the Lord has made.
Let us rejoice and be glad in it.
Again today we come together to worship the God of creation, of salvation, of time and eternity;
the God of all peoples, of all nations.

Praise the Lord.
All that is within me,
Praise God’s holy name.

Praise the Lord and remember all his kindnesses: in forgiving our sins;
in curing our diseases;
in saving us from destruction;
in surrounding us with love.

The Lord is full of mercy and compassion. The Lord is slow to anger and willing to give us gifts of love. Praise the Lord! Oh, all that is within me, praise the Lord.
—based on Psalm 103:1-8; 118:24

Confession

Forgive our faithlessness, O faithful God! And see beyond our apathy,
our thoughtlessness,
our self-centeredness,
our wrong choices.
See into our hearts,
for you are our treasure. Amen.

Assurance
The LORD builds up Jerusalem;
He gathers the outcasts of Israel.
He heals the brokenhearted,
and binds up their wounds.
Great is our Lord, and abundant in power;
his understanding is beyond measure.
—Psalm 147:2-3, 5

Come now, let us argue it out,
says the LORD:
though your sins are like scarlet,
they shall be like snow;
though they are red like crimson,
they shall become like wool.
—Isaiah 1:18

Call to Worship

Lord, you have searched me and known me.
You know when I sit down and when I stand up;
you understand my thoughts from far away.
You observe my travels and my rest;
you are aware of all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue,
you know all about it, Lord.
You have encircled me;
you have placed your hand on me.
This wondrous knowledge is beyond me.
It is lofty; I am unable to reach it.

Where can I go to escape your Spirit?
Where can I flee from your presence?
If I go up to heaven, you are there;
if I make my bed in Sheol, you are there.
If I fly on the wings of the dawn
and settle down on the western horizon,
even there your hand will lead me;
your right hand will hold on to me.
— Psalm 139:1-10

Praise the Lord for the wonderful gift of his presence!
Let us draw near to Him with grateful praise now and always!

Confession
Wondrous God,
who sets stars above us,
the ground beneath us,
and friends and strangers among us:
how often have we tried to hide from your presence,
how seldom have we looked for your creating face
and your fashioning hand!
Lord, have mercy upon us.

Wondrous God,
Revealed in flesh
through Jesus our brother and the image of the invisible God
how often have we forgotten you,
how seldom have we loved and followed you!
Christ, have mercy upon us.

Wondrous God,
who freely pours out the Holy Spirit:
how often have we ignored your promptings,
how seldom have we asked for your help or accepted your gifts!
Lord, have mercy upon us. Amen.

 

Assurance
Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, so that they will see my glory, which you have given me because you loved me before the world’s foundation. Righteous Father, the world has not known you. However, I have known you, and they have known that you sent me. I made your name known to them and will continue to make it known, so that the love you have loved me with may be in them and I may be in them.

— John 17:24-25

Hallelujah! Thanks be to God for the wonderful gift of his presence.

Call to Worship
By confusing their languages,
the Most High scattered the nations.
By sending the tongues of fire,
He unifies His church.
In harmony we worship and glorify God in the Holy Spirit.
By this unity, we show the world that we are disciples of Jesus
And we proclaim his kingdom until he returns.
May the Savior who calls a people from every tribe, tongue, and nation
open our hearts to wisdom and truth
In this hour of worship and always.

Confession
Almighty God,
who sent the promised power of the Holy Spirit
to fill disciples with eager faith:
We confess that we resist the force of your Spirit among us,
that we are slow to serve you
and reluctant to spread the good news of your love.
God, have mercy on us.
Forgive our divisions
and by your Spirit draw us together.
Inflame us with a desire to do your will
and be your faithful people
for the sake of your Son, our Lord, Jesus Christ. Amen.

Assurance

“I will take you out of the nations;
I will gather you from all the countries.
I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean.
I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you;
I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.
And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees.
You will be my people, and I will be your God.”
By the power of the Spirit, we are united with Christ and given a new spirit.
Live in the joy and peace of that assurance.

Come Thou Fount
[Youtube] [iTunes] [Spotify]

 

Call to Worship
Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.

And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful.

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
— Colossians 3:12-17

You Brought Me Back To Life

Confession
Merciful God,
in your gracious presence
we confess our sin and the sin of this world.
Although Christ is among us as our peace,
we are a people divided against ourselves
as we cling to the values of a broken world.
The profit and pleasures we pursue
lay waste the land and pollute the seas.
The fears and jealousies that we harbor
set neighbor against neighbor
and nation against nation.
We abuse your good gifts of imagination and freedom,
of intellect and reason,
and turn them into bonds of oppression.
Lord, have mercy upon us;
heal and forgive us.
Set us free to serve you in the world
as agents of your reconciling love in Jesus Christ.
Amen.

Assurance
Christ is our peace;
those who are divided
he has made one.
He has broken down the barriers of separation
by his death and has built us up
into one body, with God.
To all who repent and believe
He has promised reconciliation.
So live as people reconciled. Amen.
