Gathering Song God Welcomes All  Hymn #399
ONE: May the peace of Christ be with you.
ALL: And also with you.

Welcoming My Peace  Rev. Suzanne Swartz
One:  O Lord my God, how great you are!  You are clothed with honor and majesty.
All:  O Lord, how manifold are your works!  In wisdom you have made them all.
One:  You make the clouds your chariot, you ride on the wings of the wind.
All:  You make the winds your messengers, fire and flame your ministers.  
One:  Bless the Lord, O my soul.  Let us worship God!  
(from Psalm 104)

Life of the Church I Just Came To Praise The Lord  Rob Bracken
O God, who sent Christ to make intercessions, have mercy on us as we confess our sins. He was oppressed; we afflict others.  He was judged; we declare others unworthy.
He was stricken; we cause others pain.  He was put to death; we likewise destroy the innocent.  Numbered with sinners, he bore our transgressions.  Through Christ make us righteous, so that in him we can obey you.    

Passing of the Peace O Lord My God (How Great Thou Art)  Congregarion
Since we have a great high priest, Jesus Christ, who has passed through the heavens, let us hold fast our confession.  For we have not a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin.  Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, with assurance that in Christ we are forgiven. 

Prelude Gloria Patri  Praise Band
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.

Call to Worship (Responsive) Just A Closer Walk With Thee  Rob Bracken
Guide us, O God, by your Word and Spirit, that in your light we may see light, in your truth find wisdom, and in your will discover your peace, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
