* Opening Hymn Joy to the World  Hymn #266 (1,2 & 4)

Prayer of Adoration & Confession (unison)
Creator of all, we receive your blessing and the promise of rebirth with joy and gladness! We sing to you for the mystery of life and victory over death. We surrender to your light in Jesus’ name. Why, then, do we worry? What makes us feel sorrow and regret? Release us, we pray, from the prison of doubt. Replace our weakness with your strength. Make us whole, we pray O God, for we are yours in Christ. 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.
