Prelude Bring Back The Springtime  Praise Band

* Call to Worship One: May God be gracious to us and bless us; Many: and make his face shine upon us. One: that your ways may be known on earth, Many: Your salvation among all nations. One: May the peoples praise you, O God; ALL: May all the peoples praise you!

* Opening Hymn When Morning Gilds the Skies  Hymn #667 (all)

Prayer of Adoration & Confession (unison)
We come before you, Lord, with humble hearts. By your generous love we have received so much, and in the bounty of creation we rejoice, and thrive. We are so grateful to be your people, in your image, strengthened by our faith. Yet even as your people, we fall victim to sins of pride and judgment. If we have earthly success, we believe it is because we are better. If someone stumbles or fails, it is seen as weakness, sloth or is simple prejudice. We think we are different and better. But we are made the same! you told us so! Forgive our unkindness and heal hearts that ego has scarred. Build in us the peace and charity of unselfish Grace, and send us as your servants into your world that longs for hope. For in you all things are possible, dear God. 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.

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.
