Welcome - Rev. Lynell Caudillo
Call To Worship
People of God, let us gather
to worship and praise God’s name.
I give thanks to you, O God,
with my whole heart.
I will glorify your name forever!
For great is your steadfast love for me,
You have delivered my soul from the depths.
God says, “Know that I am with you and
will keep you wherever you go.”
HYMN #461 “God is Here!"
God is here! As we your people, Meet to offer praise and prayer,
May we find in fuller measure What it is in Christ we share.
Here, as in the world around us, All our varied skills and arts
Wait the coming of the Spirit, Into open minds and hearts.
Here are symbols to remind us of our lifelong need of grace;
Here are table, font, and pulpit; Here the cross has central place.
Here in honesty of preaching, Here in silence, as in speech.
Here, in newness and renewal, God the Spirit comes to each.
Lord of all, of church and kingdom, In an age of change and doubt
Keep us faithful to the Gospel, Help us work your purpose out.
Here, in this day’s dedication, All we have to give, receive:
We, who cannot live without you, We adore you! We believe!
Call to Confession
Trusting in God’s mercy,
let us acknowledge to ourselves and each other
those ways we fall short from what God intends for us,
all of which God already knows.
Prayer of Confession
where we are in bondage to sin, set us free;
restore us as your children
and joint heirs in Christ.
You are our hope.
Led us in the way everlasting. Amen.
Declaration of Forgiveness
Sisters and brothers in Christ,
do not fear,
for our God is merciful and gracious,
slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love
God’s hand shall lead us and hold us fast.
So be reconciled with God and at peace with one another.
The peace of Christ be with you.
And also with you. (sharing of peace)
HYMN #374 “Lord, Make Us Servants of Your Peace"
Lord, make us servants of your peace; Where there is hate, may we sow love;
Where there is hurt, may we forgive; Where there is strife, may we make one.
Where there is doubt, may we sow faith; Where all is gloom, may we sow hope;
Where all is night, may we sow light; where all is tears, may we sow joy.
Jesus, our Lord, may we not seek to be consoled, but to console,
Nor look to understanding hearts, But look for hearts to understand.
