GATHERING IN GOD’S NAME

PRELUDE
“Solfeggietto” C.P.E. Bach

SILENT MEDITATION
“No one can look upon themselves without immediately turning their thoughts to the contemplations of God in whom they live and move, the mighty gifts with this which we are endowed are hardly from ourselves indeed, our very being is nothing but subsistence in the one God.” John Calvin

CALL TO WORSHIP
We come today in faith seeking your peace.
God, pour your love.
We come today with aching hearts seeking hope.
Jesus, comfort us with your gentle presence.
We come today looking for your direction.
Holy Spirit, guide us into all the truth.
We praise you God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Let us come and worship.

PRAISE AND ADORATION

HYMN
#15 “All Creatures of Our God and King” (stanzas 1-4)

CALL TO CONFESSION

PRAYER OF CONFESSION
If we say we have no sin, we are not being honest, and the truth is not in us. Therefore, we confess our true selves: that we have often ignored our own privilege even as we benefit from it; that we have not listened to the pain of others but have instead dismissed it to keep ourselves comfortable; that we have not done the hard work of belonging to each other. We confess that we are better than this: our sin is not all we are. With your help, God, we can change. We confess this possibility, in the name of the One who makes all things possible.

THE INVITATION TO THE LORD’S TABLE

AFFIRMATION OF FAITH
from the PCUSA Study Catechism
How do you live by the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ?
I am not my own. I have been bought with a price. The Lord Jesus Christ loved me and gave himself for me. I entrust myself completely to his care, giving thanks each day for his wonderful goodness.

How do you live for the love of God?
I love because God first loved me. God loves me in Christ with a love that never ends. Amazed by grace, I no longer live for myself. I live for the Lord who died and rose again, triumphant over death, for my sake. Therefore, I take those around me to heart, especially those in particular need, knowing that Christ died for them no less than for me.

How do you live in the communion of the Holy Spirit?
By the Holy Spirit, I am made one with the Lord Jesus Christ. I am baptized into Christ’s body, the church, along with all others who confess him by faith. As a member of this community, I trust in God’s Word, share in the Lord’s Supper, and turn to God constantly in prayer. As I grow in grace and knowledge, I am led to do the good works that God intends for my life.

Glory to God the Holy Spirit, who brings us the taste of the good Word of God and the power of the age to come.
