~ WE GIVE ADORATION & CONFESSION TO GOD ~

Prayer of Adoration

Prayer of Confession (Unison) and Words of Assurance

Merciful God, in your gracious presence we confess our sin and the sin of the world. Although Christ is among us as our peace, we are a people divided against ourselves as we cling to the values of a broken world.  The profit and pleasures we pursue lay waste the land and pollute the seas. The fears and jealousies that we harbor set neighbor against neighbor and nation against nation. We abuse your good gifts of imagination and freedom, of intellect and reason, and have turned them into bonds of oppression. Lord, have mercy on us; set us free to serve you in the world as agents of your reconciling love in Jesus Christ. Hear us now as we silently confess those things that weigh heaviest            on our hearts. (silent confession of sin . . .) Lord, hear our prayers.  Amen. 

~ WE LISTEN FOR GOD’S WORD ~

Six Part Sermon Series: “Faith” – Sermon: “Faith to Faith” (Part 2)

Affirmation of Faith – “The Apostle’s Creed” (Unison)

Out of the depths we cry to you, Father. With you is forgiveness. We abuse the planet. We discriminate against one another. Not trusting in you, we declare all dead. We are quick to complain and lament the present age, believing that human evil is greater than your love. You bring us to life now, but we fail to see how. We choose the flesh-way over the Spirit-way. For the sake of the one who calls us, forgive us. We wait for you, LORD. We wait for your mercy. Let it be, God – let it be.  Amen.
