Welcome and Opening Prayer  

Call to Worship
Leader:  When we can no longer see, we will praise you with all of our mind.
People:  When we can no longer speak, we will praise you with all of our soul.
Leader: When we can no longer hear, we will praise you with all of our heart.
All:  Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.

*Hymn of Praise,   Christ, Whose Glory Fills the Skies                                    #562

*Call to Reconciliation
Leader: The psalmist declares that God who creates us- God who loves us, God
who redeems us- searches us and knows us completely.  Before a word is on our tongues,
God knows it completely.  And we are assured that there is nowhere we can go that is
separated from the presence of God.  Let us pray our prayer of confession in silence,
and then speak the words of the psalmist together.

*Prayer of Confession (Silent Prayers)

* Assurance of Pardon  (Psalm 139:23-24)
All: Search me, O God, and know my heart; 
test me and know my thoughts.  
See if there is any hurtful way in me 
and lead me in the way everlasting.

AFFIRMATION OF FAITH                                 Apostle’s Creed
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.
