Prelude There's Something About That Name  Praise Band

* Call to Worship
ONE: Happy are those who trust in God.
ALL: Proclaim God

* Opening Hymn Come! Live in the Light!  Hymn #749

Prayer of Adoration & Confession (unison)
ONE: We come before God not as despised sinners, but as beloved children. With the confidence of children of God let us confess our sin.

ALL: God of gentleness and power, we ask your forgiveness for the times we have turned away from you. Forgive us the times we have not used the spiritual gifts you have give us, the times when we have neglected those who need us, the oppressed, the poor the imprisoned. You have called us to be your servants, yet we are so wrapped up in our own lives that we fail others. You have called us to be light to the nations, yet we can barely take care of our own family and friends. Strengthen us once again with your power. Guide us and give us courage to serve you with all that we say and all that we do. Through Jesus Christ we pray. Amen.

(A moment for silent reflection)

Assurance of Forgiveness
ONE: Do not fear, says the Lord, for I have redeemed you. I have called you by name; you are mine.
God is doing a new thing, now it springs forth! By the grace of Jesus Christ, we are forgiven!

ALL: By the grace of Jesus Christ, we are forgiven! Thanks be to God.

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

Anthem I Stand in Awe  Choir

Prayer for Illumination
ALL: Saving God, source of our calling, your Word is full of power and glory.
Pour out your Holy Spirit upon us so that we may receive your grace
and live as your beloved children; through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
