Call To Worship:
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever.
Give thanks to him who alone does great wonders, for his steadfast love endures forever;
Give thanks to the God of gods, for his steadfast love endures forever.
It is he who rescued us from our foes, for his steadfast love endures forever;
Give thanks to the God of heaven, for his steadfast love endures forever.
—adapted from Psalm 136—
Confession of Sin:
Awesome and compassionate God, you have loved us with unfailing, self-giving mercy, but we have not loved you. You constantly call us, but we do not listen. You ask us to love, but we walk away from neighbors in need, wrapped in our own concerns. We condone evil, prejudice, warfare, and greed. God of grace, as you come to us in mercy, we repent in spirit and in truth, admit our sin, and gratefully receive your forgiveness through Jesus Christ, our Redeemer. Amen.
Assurance of Pardon:
Hear the good news: This saying is sure and worthy of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners. He himself bore our sins in his body on the cross, that we might be dead to sin, and alive to all that is good. I declare to you in the name of Jesus Christ, you are forgiven. Thanks be to God.
Blessed Be Your Name
Are You Washed In The Blood
My Savior, My God
Victory In Jesus
