Livestream at 10:00 a.m.

GATHERING IN GOD’S NAME

PRELUDE
“Kyrie, God the Father” J.S. Bach

MEDITATION
“If you enter into the suffering of people, you enter into darkness. Such darkness would lead to despair were there not a treasure there. The treasure in the darkness is the Crucified Christ. He who can sympathize is there. He who knows anguish is there. He who has felt tormented, abandoned, unheard, and crushed, waits there in the darkness. To enter into the fellowship of his sufferings is to find Him.” Diane Langberg, Suffering and the Heart of God

CALL TO WORSHIP (John 15:5)

“I am the vine,” Jesus said.
We are the branches.
Those who abide in Christ and who Christ abides in are here.
We desire to bear much fruit.
Apart from me you can do nothing, Jesus said.
We want to do our part and do something. Let us worship God.

PRAISE AND ADORATION

HYMN
#805 “Come Sing to God” ELLACOMBE

CALL TO CONFESSION

PRAYER OF CONFESSION
Gracious God, we ask your forgiveness for when we let fear rule our lives instead of trusting in you. We pray for the times that we judge other persons because they are different than us, for when we remain silent instead of a championing your values of justice and radical acceptance, and for when we run away from your call on our lives to bring hope and comfort to others. God have mercy on us and give us the strength to live as your disciples in word and deed, accepting those we encounter with courage and love.

AFFIRMATION OF FAITH
from A Brief Statement of Faith

In life and in death we belong to God. Through the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit, we trust in the one triune God, the Holy One of Israel, whom alone we worship and serve. We trust in Jesus Christ, fully human, fully God. We trust in God, whom Jesus called Abba, Father. We trust in God the Holy Spirit, everywhere the giver and renewer of life. With believers in every time and place, we rejoice that nothing in life or in death can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
