Prelude Peace in the Valley  Praise Band

* Call to Worship  
One: Sing to the Lord a new song;
Many: Our hope is in the Lord!
One: By God’s love we are given life;
Many: And by Grace we find renewal and hope.
One: Let us sing to the Lord a new song;
ALL: Sing praises, let all Creation sing praises!

* Opening Hymn O For A Thousand Tongues  Hymn #610 (all)

Prayer of Adoration & Confession (unison)
Life is good, O Lord, and your Creation is beautiful. There is nothing to compare with mountains that reach to the sky, the nurturing sound of rushing water, or the song of a bird on the wing. You have painted your earth with color and light, and soil to be tilled and planted that none may be hungry. We give thanks to you for so much that we take for granted, and we look away as we wonder why we plunder this world and one another? Why, O God, do hate and fear guide our hands? We are ashamed and ask your forgiveness, your healing and your guidance. Let the strength and trust we find in you break down the walls of distrust and build communities of friendship and sharing. We humbly ask in Jesus name to be your hands and your heart as we follow in the footsteps of your Son, 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.

Gloria Patri  Hymn #581

* Praise Hymn Thy Word Is a Lamp Unto My Feet  Hymn #458 (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.

Anthem Surely the Presence of the Lord Is In This Place  solo by Erika Voerman

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
