* Call to Worship One: Let us give thanks for this day of grace and beauty! Many: We come with hearts both humble and glad. One: How do we come before our God? ALL: We come singing songs of praise and glory!

* Opening Hymn Come Christians Join To Sing  Hymn #267 (all)

Prayer of Adoration & Confession (unison)
Lord, you have given us the sun and the stars. We are rich beyond measure, not by the wealth of the earth, but by your love and grace. We are born, we grow, we live our lives. Each breath is a gift because we can’t know tomorrow, and we give thanks upon thanks for each new day, every new friend, one moment of joy. But all your people do not have joy, dear God. Some have no home, are outcast, are hidden from our sight because we choose not to see. Forgive us! Give us sight borne from your Word, and lead us to reach out to the stranger, to heal as we are healed, to receive hope as we receive hope through Christ. Hear our prayer we pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.

(A moment for silent reflection)

Assurance of Pardon
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.

* Singing Gloria Patri  Hymn #623

In My Life Lord be Glorified  Hymn #468 (all)

Choral Preparation Hear Our Prayer, O Lord  on Screen

Prayers of the People & Lord's Prayer
Our Father who art in Heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the Kingdom and the power and the glory, forever. Amen.

Anthem Make Us One  Solo by Jim DeHart

Prayer for Illumination .
Lord, open our hearts and minds by the power of your Holy Spirit, that as the Scriptures are read and your Word is proclaimed, we may hear with joy what you say to us today. Amen
