*Prayer of Confession
Holy and merciful God, in perfection you created the earth, fixed the course of the sun and seasons,
and populated the earth with plants, fish, birds, and animals to live in an intricate, balanced web of life.
You created us in your image and gave us the responsibility to care for the world.
We confess that we have failed to live up to our responsibilities.
Our desire for comfort, money and convenience has polluted the creation you marked as good.
We pray your forgiveness and beg that you would create a right heart and mind within us,
that we may consume according to our need instead of our want and that we may begin to heal your creation from human injury.
*Silent Prayer of Confession
*Assurance of Pardon

Sermon          God’s Beautiful Creation  

Affirmation of Faith                                                The Apostle’s 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
