Prayer of Adoration

* Hymn #268              God, Who Stretched the Spangled Heavens               HOLY MANNA

Call to Confession

Silent Confession

Prayer of Confession

Loving God, we confess that we are guilty of ignoring the ways of justice and peace, so often pushing your concerns for the world to the periphery of our lives. We follow Jesus only when it serves our ends. We call on you only when our ways are frustrated.
By the power of the Holy Spirit,
         give us eyes to see the needs around us,
         ears to hear the cries of our neighbors,
         and courage to act for the sake of the poor, the marginalized,
                  and the oppressed.
Renew our faith, cleanse us of our sin, and teach us the true meaning of discipleship so that we may be your faithful servants. Amen.

Assurance of Pardon

* Response of Praise                              Gloria Patri                                    (Hymn #579)

*+Passing of the Peace

Baptized in water, Sealed by the Spirit,
Marked with the sign of Christ, our King;
Born of the Spirit,
We are God’s children,
Joyfully now God’s praises we sing.

And there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying:
Neither shall there be any more pain.
