CALL TO WORSHIP
All who thirst, come to the water. Come, all who are weary; come, all who yearn for forgiveness.
We have come to find Jesus. We are tired in body and spirit. We are hungry with nothing to eat.
There is plenty for all. Come and eat your fill.
Jesus gathers the fragments of our lives, that nothing may be lost.
—inspired by John 6—
CONFESSION OF SIN
Lord, you have called us to worship you. We gladly gather! As we praise you, though, our own inadequacy reminds us of how we have broken our relationship with you. Because we have sinned against you, even our worship fails to be what it could. We often treat it as a show. We simply go through motions, failing to recognize that you want to engage us deeply. Renew us, we pray, according to your steadfast love. Remind us of your covenant faithfulness and have mercy on us in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
ASSURANCE OF PARDON
God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
—Romans 5:8; Colossians 1:13-14; Romans 5:1, NIV—
