CALL TO WORSHIP                                              Lindsay Anderson

The God we worship is the giver of life:
the One who makes the dry tree green
and grows a forest from the smallest seed.
The God we worship is the giver of life:
the One who forms us, names us, loves us,
and teaches us to share our lives with the world.   

HYMN OF PRAISE        “All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name” – GTG #263       

CALL TO CONFESSION     

PRAYER OF CONFESSION
When our actions are not consistent with the truth of your gospel,
forgive us, Lord. Cleanse us and free us.
When our lives do not proclaim the power of your love,
compel us, Lord. Free us and forgive us.
When our minds are full of self-condemnation, ignoring your grace,
revive us Lord. Forgive us and compel us.
For our lives are rooted in our faith in Jesus Christ,
and through Christ’s love alone we are reconciled to you.
