Call to Confession

   Silent Confession

   Prayer of Confession

Loving God, we do not find it easy to speak of how we fail to live as your people, but you invite us to share our weaknesses. Tempted to think your salvation is for a select few, we put up barriers for others. Clinging to all you give to us, we are reluctant to share with those in need. Forgive us.

Open our eyes to our sisters and brothers all around us. Open our ears to the word of hope you speak to us. Open our spirits to the presence of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, who flings wide the open doors of your kingdom, that all might find life with you. Amen.

Assurance of Pardon

* Response of Praise Gloria Patri (Hymn #579)

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.

Leader: The peace of Christ be with you.

“The Gift of Youth”
“Let no one despise your youth, but set the believers an example in speech and conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.”
(1 Timothy 4:12)

WE GIVE THANKS TO GOD

Invitation to Discipleship

* Affirmation of Faith (from A Brief Statement of Faith)

We trust in Jesus Christ,
fully human, fully God.
Jesus proclaimed the reign of God:
preaching good news to the poor
and release to the captives,
teaching by word and deed
and blessing the children,
healing the sick
and binding up the brokenhearted,
eating with outcasts,
forgiving sinners,
and calling all to repent and believe the gospel.
With believers in every time and place,
we rejoice that nothing in life or in death
can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Amen.

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. 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.

Offertory Allemande Josef Rheinberger
(from Suite for Violin and Organ, Op. 166) (1839-1901)

* Doxology old hundredth

Praise God from whom all blessings flow.
Praise Him all creatures here below.
Praise Him above ye heavenly host.
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen.

Call to Worship Kat Barden

One: God’s story began in the beginning. Across time and place, God has been on the move in the world.

All: We have inherited the story of Creation.

One: God’s people have lived this story. They have been the subjects and objects of God’s design.

All: Through famine and feast; through war and peace; through suffering and blessing: we have lived as a chosen people.

One: Through its complications and unexpected turns, God’s story is one of redemption, hope, joy, and love. It is the story of the Triune God at work among us.

All: Let us worship the author of our story.

   The Lord’s Prayer

   Music Guide Me Ever, Great Redeemer arr. Dale Wood
   (1934-2003)

Guide me ever, great Redeemer, Pilgrim through this barren land.
I am weak, but you are mighty; Hold me with your powerful hand.
Bread of heaven, bread of heaven, Feed me now and evermore.

Open now the crystal fountain Where the healing waters flow;
Let the fire and cloudy pillar Lead me all my journey through.
Strong deliverer, strong deliverer, Shield me with your mighty arm.

When I tread the verge of Jordan, Bid my anxious fears subside;
Death of death and hell’s destruction, Land me safe on Canaan’s side.
Songs and praises, songs and praises, I will raise forevermore!

   Prayers of the People

* Closing Hymn #507 I Come with Joy dove of peace

* Benediction

Second@Six is a casual, slower-paced, less traditional service held in the sanctuary on Sunday evenings.
