* Call to Worship

One: A new year begins, our lives are renewed;
Many: We gather in God's house to give thanks and prayers.
One: In this house all are welcome;
Many: We gather in God's house to be fed and refreshed!
All: Let us sing a new song, a song of love and joy!

* Opening Hymn Immortal, Invisible, God Only Wise  Hymn #12 (all)

Prayer of Adoration & Confession (unison)
How wonderful is life, O God; how sweet every breath. The mountains rise around us, tall and bold against your sky. Our hearts are as strong as the stone that forms them, for we are assured by your power and presence, by your hope and promise. Yet the world and its troubles challenge us. Our minds are filled with visions of darkness and threat, and we become afraid. in our fear, we can lash out, and shut out others. Let our strong hearts overwhelm our fears, we pray. Replace our sins of doubt with the assurance that is you. Forgive our weakness so that we may become bold in our desire to live lives that reflect your Grace. 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.

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