Welcome and Announcements 👋

Prelude    Reverie for Organ           Joe Utterback🎼


Call to Worship 🙌 

Today we celebrate the way sin which God works and moves in our world…

For God is not contained in bricks and mortar

           But in the miracles of everyday life

When neighbor cares for neighbor

When those that the world forgets are remembered

When the songs of the faithful fill living rooms

We celebrate that even in hard times, our God is constant

           In His love for us

           In His constant grace

           In his redemptive power.

Our God is the God that created all that was, is and will ever be.

Our God is the God that called and claimed us as His children.

Our God is the mighty hand that released the captives from Egypt.

Our God is still working among us today

           Creating new and different communities of worship

           Calling us into a new identity

           And Redeeming us through the love of His Son, our Savior, Jesus Christ.

With voices, song, prayers and hearts, let us worship this Living God.

Prayer of Confession 🙏 

Our worlds are so busy that we often forget who we are called to be…

We try to rationalize the world around us and we rely more on the things of this world than on God…



We make excuses when we are confronted with the realities of our mistakes

           Everyone is doing it

           It is just the way it is right now


We are so self-absorbed that we fail to recognize God in our daily lives instead…

We walk our own path

We follow our own Ten Commandments

We justify our hatred of our neighbors

We love only those that look, talk and act like we do.

When bad things happen, we throw blame and anger instead of searching our own hearts and actions.

Forgive us Lord, for forgetting who we are

Forgive us Lord, for neglecting to remember who you are

Speak to us once again of your grace and mercy

And convict us in our hearts so that we might receive forgiveness and freely offer it to others.
