* Opening Hymn Spirit, Spirit of Gentlemess  Hymn #291

Prayer of Adoration & Confession (unison) Elder John Evans
Loving God, we know there are times we feel surrounded by hopelessness. We do not know where to turn. We feel life has left us and those we love, and find ourselves longing for endings. Yet you, God, come to us even in those times. You challenge us. You remind us that you are a God of forgiveness, hope and life. You invite us to proclaim a message of life in the midst of despair. Receive, then, our confession, and fill us with the breath of new life and forgiveness. Amen,

(A moment for silent reflection)

Assurance of Pardon O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! If Jesus Christ dwells in you, the Spirit of God will be your life and the grace of God will be your righteousness. And if the Holy Spirit dwells in you, then God, who raised Jesus from the dead, will also give life to your mortal bodies. Friends, this is the good news of the gospel! People: In Jesus Christ We Are Forgiven! Elder John Evans
