Welcome and Announcements
*Call to Worship
If we receive human testimony, the testimony of God is greater.
Those who believe in the Son of God have testimony in their hearts.
This is the testimony:
God gave us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
Whoever has the Son has life.
We gather knowing that we have eternal life.
Let us worship together this Lord of life.
Prayer of the Day
your blessed Son before his passion prayed for his disciples
that they might be one, as you and he are one.
Grant that your church, being bound together in love and obedience to you,
may be united in one body by the one Spirit,
that the world may believe in him whom you have sent,
your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
*Hymn 41 O Worship the King, All Glorious Above, verses 1-3
Prayer of Confession
Eternal God, in whom we live and move and have our being,
whose face is hidden from us by our own sins,
and whose mercy we forget in the blindness of our hearts:
Cleanse us from all offenses,
and deliver us from proud thoughts and vain desires,
that with humble hearts we may draw near to you,
confessing our faults, confiding in your grace,
and finding refuge and strength, through Jesus Christ your Son. Amen.
*Hymn Take, O Take Me As I Am
Assurance of Pardon
Hear the good news!
Who is in a condition to condemn?
And Christ died for us,
Christ rose for us,
Christ reigns in power for us,
Christ prays for us.
Anyone who is in Christ is a new creation.
The old life is gone and a new life is begun.
Know you are forgiven and be at peace. Amen.
