Prelude He’s Everything to Me  Praise Band

* Call to Worship
One: Shout to the Lord, shout to the Lord and God’s glory!
Many: Our voices sing out for the world to hear;
One: Who comes in the light of morning to worship and praise?
Many: Open the doors that all may hear;
ALL: Let all God’s children enter and be welcome!

* Opening Hymn Arise, Your Light Has Come!  Hymn #744 (all)

Prayer of Adoration & Confession (unison)
We came into the world in innocence, eyes wide open. You created us to live in a place of love and hope, to trust in you and grow in faith and works. We found happiness in the smallest things: bare feet on grass, the fast heartbeat of a baby bird held in a small hand. You were so real, dear Lord, and so near. When we grew older, we began to forget our sense of innocence. We cared more for ourselves than others, and if we were blessed we began to judge the less fortunate. If life was hard, we hid from you. Forgive us we pray. Remind us of the untouched grass and the hopeful, giving heart. Restore our inner light and set us on right paths, your path. We ask always 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

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 Anthem to the Trinity  Choir

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
