Call to Worship
I am a Promise                                                                                                                   Cherub Choir

*Hymn of Praise               All Glory, Laud and Honor                                                 Red #204

* Prayer of Confession
Holy One,
You are the God we didn’t expect as we see you riding a donkey and crucified on a criminal’s cross. You are not the savior we expect.  Your power doesn’t look like the power we want our God to demonstrate. Your wisdom is often what we don’t understand.  We are happy to wave the palm branches, but not sure we want to follow you into the temple courts or into the upper room or into the Garden of Gethsemane or to the foot of the cross.  Forgive us for our weak knees and our sweaty palms.  Clarify our vision and our mission.  Let us relax in the foolishness of your love and receive the boundless mercy of your grace. Amen

*Silent Prayer of Confession and Assurance of Pardon

*Westminster Greeting Please greet those who are in worship this morning.

Please sign the Red Friendship Book along the inside of your pew,
and  pass it to the person beside you

*Affirmation of Faith                                                                    Apostles’ Creed
I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; he descended into hell; the third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy catholic church; the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting. Amen.
