Online Worship Service for January 16, 2022
Live at 9:00 a.m.
GATHERING IN GOD’S NAME
“Prelude“ César Franck
As we joyfully greet each other today, sharing the gifts of friendship and love,
as the prelude begins, you are invited to begin your personal preparation for worship.
“Christians don’t simply learn or study or use Scripture; we assimilate it, take it into our lives in such a way that it gets metabolized into acts of love, cups of cold water, mission into all the world, healing and evangelism and justice in Jesus’ name.” Eugene Peterson
CALL TO WORSHIP
We have found the Messiah,
Jesus Christ, who brings us truth and grace.
Our Savior Jesus Christ is the light of the world.
May we shine with the radiance of his glory, that he may be known, worshiped, and obeyed
to the ends of the earth!

CALL TO CONFESSION
PRAYER OF CONFESSION
God of Grace, through the Holy spirit, you have blessed us with many spiritual gifts. When we use these gifts of faith, we can act as your agents to help others and foster a world of cooperation. Yet, we confess that we have failed to use these gifts of the Spirit. We have neglected your call on our lives. We watch as anger and apathy take charge. Forgive us and renew our desire to use the gifts you have given us for your glory. We pray that through them we can share our love of Christ Jesus and be agents of your peace.

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever. Amen.

OUR RESPONSE TO GOD’S WORD
AFFIRMATION OF FAITH
from A Brief Statement of Faith
We trust in Jesus Christ, fully human, fully God. Jesus proclaimed the reign of God: preaching good news to the poor and release to the captives, teaching by word and deed and blessing the children, healing the sick and binding up the brokenhearted, eating with outcasts, forgiving sinners, and calling all to repent and believe the gospel. Unjustly condemned for blasphemy and sedition, Jesus was crucified, suffering the depths of human pain and giving his life for the sins of the world. God raised Jesus from the dead, vindicating his sinless life, breaking the power of sin and evil, delivering us from death to life eternal.
“Praise God, from Whom All Blessings Flow” LASST UNS ERFREUEN
Praise God, from whom all blessings flow. Praise God, all creatures high and low.
Alleluia, alleluia! Praise God, in Jesus fully known; Creator, Word, and Spirit one.
Alleluia, alleluia! Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!
