Welcome and Announcements
*Call to Worship 1 John 4:9-10
In this is love,
not that we have loved God,
but that God has loved us
and sent God’s Son into the world
so that we might live through him.
All powerful God,
in Jesus Christ you turned death into life,
and defeat into victory.
Increase our faith and trust in him,
that we may triumph over all evil,
relying on the strength of the same Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
One God, forever and ever. Amen.
*Hymn 35 Praise Ye the Lord, the Almighty
Prayer of Confession
you love us fully, completely,
but, we have not loved you with our whole selves.
You call, but we do not listen.
We walk away from neighbors in need and we condone prejudice, conflict, and greed.
God of grace,
help us admit our sins, that we may turn from indifference and ignorance,
and turn toward you, see the needs of the world, and resolve to speak with your voice and walk in your ways. Amen.
Hymn 698 Take, O, Take Me As I Am
Assurance of Forgiveness
Scripture declares that God sent his Son into the world, not to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him. Friends, believe the good news of the gospel:
In Jesus Christ we are forgiven. Be at peace.

*Hymn 37 Let All Things Now Living
Go now at the call of God
and follow wherever the Lord leads you.
Love truth and justice
and share the healing mercy of God with all.
And may God bless you and make you a blessing to others;
May Christ Jesus take you by the hand and lift you to new life.
And may the Holy Spirit nourish you in hope so that you may grow in faith. Amen.
