Opening Hymn We  Hymn #296

Prayer of Confession (Unison) Elder Peggy Kueffer
God of grace and God of mercy, we confess that we have not borne the fruit of the Spirit. We have not loved others as you have loved us. We have denied the promises of baptism and cut ourselves off from you. Forgive us, we pray, and restore us, that we may abide in your love and live out your mercy, for the Sake of Jesus Christ, in whose name we pray. Amen.

(A moment for silent reflection)

Assurance of Forgiveness Elder Peggy Kueffer
We have already been cleansed by the word that God has spoken to us. In baptism God claimed us and joined us to Christ, as branches to a vine. Friends, believe the good news of the gospel: in Jesus Christ we are forgiven. Hallelujah! Amen.

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