One: Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord;
Many: let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.
One: Let us come before him with thanksgiving
ALL: and extol him with music and song!
|* Opening Hymn||Come, Christians Join to Sing||Hymn #267 (all)|
|Prayer of Adoration & Confession (unison)|
Our hearts rejoice in you, our God. We are thankful for so much, from the most unexpected joy that surprises us to knowing you are near whenever we need you. Always, you listen; always, you wait. Yours is a patient love, one that can be trusted. In our foolishness, we can question our faith because we cannot see it. When we are happy, its easy but when we are afraid, it is hard. Forgive us our sins of doubt, and let our hearts and minds be victorious over the darkness of those who would harm, or the edges of life that cause us fear and pain. You are the solid rock, the unseen force, the presence that moves through us like the wind. In your forgiveness we are transformed and it is with grateful hearts that we give thanks 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.

For thine is the Kingdom and the power and the glory, forever. Amen.
