Prelude, Come, Thou Fount Of Every Blessing                                             Wyeth

Welcome and Opening Prayer

Call to Worship
Leader:  The human mind plans the way,
People:   But the Lord directs the steps                                               

*Hymn of Praise,    There’s a Wideness in God’s Mercy                                   #486

*Unison Prayer of Confession
Gracious God, we come before you today knowing that we often fall short of your call to love one another well.
We allow ourselves to be blinded by wealth and power.  We ignore those around us who suffer injustice, poverty, and rejection.
We tune out the cries of the poor and those on the edges of our communities.
Help us to see your great generosity, hear your word of mercy, and feel your great love for all who need your redemptive grace.
Strengthen us to reach out in service to those who are in need. Make us aware of those outside our own communities,
that we may see them as your precious children and serve them in humility and joy.
May we continue to grow in grace as we learn how to serve you in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen. 

*Silent Prayer of Confession
*Assurance of Pardon

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.
