Prelude It Is Well With My Soul  Frieda & Joyce

* Call to Worship
One: This is the day the Lord has made;
Many: Let us rejoice and be glad in it.
One: We come to dwell in the light of Gods love;
Many: Let us sing to the world a new song!

* Opening Hymn Lead On, O King Eternal  Hymn #269 (all)

Prayer of Adoration & Confession (unison)
The glory of your Spring is all around us, O God. We can see the splendor of the mountains, and feel the renewal of life everywhere. There is a sense of expectation and wonder, a memory of hope to come, a memory that has followed us since childhood. We are deeply thankful for the gift of life, and Christ's victory over death. We are reminded of our human nature, and our need to be forgiven for wrongs done. In our comfort we might take the Cross for granted, as if forgiveness is needed by others but not by us. But we know this is not true, and come to you asking union with this Lenten season, renewal of our troubled hearts, and freedom from the distraction of spiritual winters. We come to you, the Way, the Truth and Light. 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 Seek Ye First  Hymn #175 (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 Reason Enough  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
