*Unison Prayer of Confession
God our Redeemer, you are “our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble”.
You accompany us in moments of blessedness and in periods of brokenness.
Yet at times we fail to recognize your presence and choose instead to live in self-centered reliance as though we are in isolation.
In turn, we isolate their most vulnerable who are among us.  We give into the fear of uncertainty instead of the grace of solidarity.
We confess that by expulsion or neglect, we push away those who seek refuge in our midst, ignoring that you are the Redeemer who offers refuge to all.
Free us now from our suffocating isolation, that we may breathe anew your liberating Spirit, the source of all compassion, the strength of all justice.
We pray in the name of Christ Jesus and by the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

*Silent Prayer of Confession

*Affirmation of Faith                                                              portions of section four of Belhar Confession
We believe…that God supports the downtrodden, protects the stranger, helps orphans and widows, and blocks the path of the ungodly;
that for God pure and undefiled religion is to visit the orphans and widows in their suffering;
that God wishes to teach the church to do what is good and to seek the right;
that the church must therefore stand by people in any form of suffering and need, which implies, among other things,
that the church must witness against and strive against any form of injustice,
so that justice may roll down like waters, and righteousness like an ever flowing stream.

Receiving of the Morning Offering
Please place completed friendship register sheets
