Passing of the Peace My Peace (As we return to our seats.)  Congregation

Prelude I Believe  Praise Band

* Call to Worship
One: We gather in this house of peace;
Many: Our hearts long for God’s presence and wisdom.
One: May our time together fill us with joy and hope;
ALL: And our songs of praise be heard by all the nations!

* Opening Hymn To God Be the Glory  Hymn #634 (all)

Prayer of Adoration & Confession (unison)
We live in a world of such possibilities, a world made by you, Creator of all. We live in a world of beauty because of your attention, to love, grace, color and light. Through our faith in you our path becomes straight, for your hand prepares the way before us. You never fail and we praise you, O God, and give thanks! Sometimes, though, we fail. We think beauty is found in riches, in the glitter of gold, and we keep it for ourselves. We become afraid that others will steal it, and so we close others off. Their suffering or need is hidden from us by our own doing. Forgive us, please forgive us! Reveal to our hearts the true treasure revealed in Christ, a treasure to be shared as the love we have received, offering hope, care and dignity to every soul. We ask these things 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.

Gloria Patri  Hymn #581

* Praise Hymn Praise Him, All Ye Little Children  (on screen)

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 My Tribute  Solo by Harry Horde

Prayer for Illumination
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
