Prelude Special Music  Praise Band

* Call to Worship One: My heart is steadfast, O God; Many: I will sing and make music with all my soul. One: Awake, harp and lyre! I will awaken the dawn. ALL: I will sing of you among the peoples, for great is your love!

* Opening Hymn When Morning Gilds the Skies  Hymn #667 (1,3,4)

Prayer of Adoration & Confession (unison)
As we begin our Lenten walk, we give thanks and praise to you, our God, for the gift of your son, Jesus: for the waters of the Jordan where he was baptized, for the Living Water that finds us, always, even in a desert of our own making. His journey is the heart of our lives, and we are filled with joy and hope as we journey toward Jerusalem. Forgive us when we stumble along the way, our promises forgotten. Lift us when we reach for your hem, longing to be healed by your love. Redeem us, let us be washed clean, our sin destroyed by the victory of the Cross. We pray in Jesus' name, Amen.

(A moment for silent reflection)

Assurance of Pardon Hear the good news! In Christ, we are forgiven! In Christ, we have new life!
Who is in a position to condemn? Only Christ, and Christ died for us, was risen for us, and reigns in power over us, Sisters and brothers hear this good news. Through Christ we are forgiven and reconciled with the Creator of all.

For thine is the Kingdom and the power and the glory, forever. Amen.

The Apostles’ Creed 
I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; he descended into hell; the third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen
