Welcome and Announcements
*Call to Worship
O Come let us worship and bow down.
Let us kneel before the Lord our Maker.
For the Lord is our God;
we are the Lord’s people;
the flock that God shepherds.
Prayer of the Day
God of all power,
you called from death our Lord Jesus,
the great shepherd of the sheep.
Send us as shepherds to rescue the lost,
to heal the injured,
and to feed one another.
with knowledge and understanding.
through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
*Hymn 39 Great Is Thy Faithfulness
Prayer of Confession
We confess that we have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed,
by what we have done and 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 us, and call us back to your fold, that we may walk in your ways and delight in your will, to the glory of your name.
*Hymn 698 Take, O Take Me as I Am
Assurance of Pardon
Ours is a gracious God, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
He gathers us to him as surely as the shepherd rescues his wayward flock.
I declare to you, in the name of Jesus Christ, we are forgiven. We are safe in the arms of God.
Be at peace. Amen.

Go now, following the voice of the shepherd.
Fear no evil, for God is by your side.
Devote yourselves to the works of God, to words of mercy, to good deeds and to acts of love.
And may God wipe every tear from your eyes;
May Christ Jesus be your shepherd and all that you need;
And may the Holy Spirit tend you with goodness and love all the days of your life. Amen.
