GATHERING IN GOD’S NAME

PRELUDE
“Blessed Jesus, We Are Here” J. G. Walther
As the prelude begins, you are invited to begin your personal preparation for worship.

SILENT MEDITATION
Only humans find their way by a light that illuminates more than the patch of ground they stand on. – Peter Medawar

CALL TO WORSHIP
Faith is the assurance of things hoped for
The conviction of things not seen
By faith, we trust in God’s promise
That God will provide the foundation for our lives
Let us come together in worship
Knowing that God will equip us to live as children of the light.

CALL TO CONFESSION

PRAYER OF CONFESSION (unison)
Merciful God, you made us in your image with a mind to know you, a heart to love you, and a will to serve you. But our knowledge is imperfect, our love inconsistent, our obedience incomplete. Day by day, we fail to grow into your likeness. In your tender love, forgive us and help us live into your call on our lives.
