    PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE AND LORD’S PRAYER

    Our Father, who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom

    come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day

    our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

    And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Thine

    is the Kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever. ~ Amen.

  • GATHERING WITH PRAISE

    PRELUDE Alejandro Alumbreros

    FIRST THOUGHT

    Most Church boats don’t like to be rocked; they prefer to lie at anchor

    rather than go places on stormy seas. But that’s because we Christians

    view the Church as the object of our love instead of the subject and

    instrument of God’s. Faith cannot be passive: it has to go forth – to

    assault the conscience, excite the imagination.

    ~ William Slone Coffin

    One: The Lord be with you.

    All: And also with you.

    CALL TO WORSHIP

    One: Reveal Your presence to us, O God

    All: As we gather here to worship You

    One: Show us the ways You would have us take

    All: And give us courage for every day of life

    One: Inspire us to do good in Your world

    All: And to be Your voice speaking love into every life

    One: Come, let us worship God with hymns of praise and the service of

    our lives

    OPENING HYMN “O Christ, the Great Foundation” [443]

    *PRAYER OF THE DAY

    WELCOME

    Welcome! Whoever you are, wherever you come from and whatever you have

    done or failed to do, welcome to this place where we celebrate the love of

    God and are inspired by the hospitality of Jesus Christ. May you find God’s

    love, peace and grace as we worship together.

    CALL TO CONFESSION

    PRAYER OF CONFESSION Larry Dickerson

    Dear God, as the risen Christ spoke to the disciples and called them to

    proclaim Your love to the ends of the earth, so You call us. We confess

    that we have been deaf to Your call, blind to Your leading and hesitant

    to trust You. Our faith has been frail and efforts have been weak. Our

    service has been half-hearted and we have let opportunities pass us by.

    (Continued on page 11)

    (Continued on page 2)

    Forgive us for being slow to follow and quick to judge. Open our

    hearts and lives to Your transforming love and healing forgiveness,

    show us the way You would have us go and give us the strength of

    Your presence to be our companion. ~ Amen

    (Let us continue to pray in silence.)

    ASSURANCE OF PARDON

    One: Friends, hear the good news of the Gospel.

    All: In Jesus Christ we are forgiven.

    *ACT OF PRAISE [306 V. 1]

    Fairest Lord Jesus, ruler of all nature,

    O Thou of God to earth come down,

    Thee will I cherish, Thee will I honor,

    Thou, my soul’s glory, joy and crown .
