*Prayer of Confession
Gracious Creator, You have given us so much,
But too often we take those gifts for granted.
You call us to live as a caring community,
But too often we place our wants and needs first,
With those of others a distant second.
You call us to share Your gifts with the world around us,
But we are worried that there may not be enough,
And our worrying gets in the way of our sharing.
For all the times when we mistreat and misuse Your gifts,
for all the times we assume that we get what we have by ourselves,
Forgive us and lead us back to the path of wisdom in Christ Jesus our Lord.

*Silent Prayer of Confession & *Assurance of Pardon  

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

Announcements     Please sign the Red Friendship Book along the inside of your pew,

Leader: What further benefit do we receive from Christ’s sacrifice and death on the  cross?
All: By Christ’s power our old selves are crucified, put to death, and buried with
him, so that the evil desires of the flesh may no longer rule us,
but that instead we may offer ourselves as a sacrifice of gratitude to him.
