Call to Worship

One:          Day by day, God leads us:

All:             to the deep, deep pools of peace, to the green, lush lawns of grace.

One:           Day by day, Jesus calls us:

All:              to pour ourselves out in service, to anoint the stranger with hope.

One:           Day by day, the Holy Spirit shows us:

All:             the community we could be, the family we are called to become.

One:           Let us worship God!

Prayer of Adoration

Call to Confession

Silent Confession

Prayer of Confession

Gentle Shepherd, you guide us in right paths; you lead us in the ways of righteousness. We have not followed your ways. We have not listened for your voice, choosing instead the ways of the world.

Forgive us for not remembering that we are your sheep, and you are our Shepherd. Guide us back to your path. Help us unclench our fists and open our hands in hope, healing, forgiveness, and love.

In the name of Christ our Shepherd we pray. Amen.

Assurance of Pardon

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost;
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
world without end. Amen. Amen.

*+Passing of the Peace

Leader:           The peace of Christ be with you.

People:          And also with you.

Great is thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me.

Morning by morning I wake up to find
The power and comfort of God’s hand in mine.
Season by season I watch Him, amazed
In awe of the mystery of His perfect ways.
All I have need of, His hand will provide.
He’s always been faithful to me.

I can’t remember a trial or a pain
He did not recycle to bring me gain.
I can’t remember one single regret
In serving God only, and trusting His hand.
All I have need of, His hand will provide.
He’s always been faithful to me.

This is my anthem, this is my song,
The theme of the stories I’ve heard for so long.
God has been faithful, He will be again.
His loving compassion, it knows no end.
All I have need of, His hand will provide.
He’s always been faithful, He’s always been faithful,
He’s always been faithful to me.

Prayers of the People and the 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.

For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever. Amen.

Piecing Together Something Beautiful

SUNDAYS, 10:35 AM, MILNER CHAPEL

The Service of Holy Communion and Wholeness is held every Sunday for those who would like to receive the Lord’s Supper and join in a reflective time of prayer.
