* Call to Worship Leader: O God, be not far from us, People: For we are your children. Leader: O God, help us to believe, People: For in Christ we would live abundantly. Leader: O God, we search for you and would worship you, People: For in you we live and move and have our being.

* Opening Hymn Come, Thou Almighty King  Hymn #2 (all)

Prayer of Adoration & Confession (unison)
O God of a Thousand Faces, who sees through all our pretenses to that silent, secret space where our true spirit sojourns, prune away the duplicities that mask our best intentions and all those quick defenses that disguise who we really are. Open us up to you and to all who would touch the truth of our being, so all may see the integrity of lives given over to you, now and forever. 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.

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