Prelude I Just Came To Praise The Lord  Praise Band

* Call to Worship Leader: Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord People: Let us shout aloud to the rock of our salvation Leader: Let us come before him with thanksgiving ALL: And extol him with music and song!

Prayer of Adoration & Confession (unison)
We rejoice, O God, in your splendor and your grace. We rejoice in your love for us. No cloud can keep your light from shining, no pain destroy our hope, for you are with us, always. Yet when our lives are good, we find no need for you. And when there is trouble, we wonder where you are. Forgive us, Lord, our doubt. Lead us back to you when we stray, and help us listen for your voice in this noisy world. For without you, we are empty, and with you, we are fulfilled. We ask 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.

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.
