Hymn: No, Not One
Call to Worship
Our God will supply every need of ours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. To our God be glory forever and ever. Come, let us bring God our needs this day. To our God be glory forever and ever.
Prayer of Confession
Great God of life, you are lavish in your care for us, stunning us with beauty, answering our prayers, giving us ideas and friends when we are in need of help. Yet, how little we take notice of Your care, how rarely we offer thanks, how quickly we think we are the only ones concerned. We easily get overwhelmed and overburdened, we seldom feel praise welling up in us, we let whining and grumbling have their way with us. God of great love, let us breathe deeply this day and experience your presence, as fresh as cool water.
Time of Personal Reflection
Assurance of Pardon
In Christ there is no east or west,
In him no south or north,
But one great fellowship of love throughout the whole wide earth.
In Jesus Christ, there is new life.
In Jesus Christ, we are forgiven.
Hymn: There's Something About That Name
I believe in God, the Father almighty,
maker of heaven and earth.
And in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Ghost
and born of the virgin Mary.
Suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, dead and buried.
On the third day he arose from the dead.
He ascended into heaven
and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father almighty.
From thence he shall come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.

Prayer of Thanksgiving
Lift up your hearts

Let us give thanks to the Lord our God
It is right to give God thanks and praise
