Welcome and Morning Greeting
VOTUM and SALUTATION:
INTROIT: HYMN: “You Servants of God, Your Master Proclaim”
CALL TO WORSHIP: God loves us with a steadfast love. Let the redeemed of the Lord say so! God loves us so much he gave us His Son. Let us believe and have eternal life! God loves us with a great love, rich in mercy. Let us have faith to receive this grace! Give thanks to the Lord, for God is good.
CALL TO CONFESSION: The good news is this, Christ came into the world to save sinners. Let us therefore open ourselves to His saving love as we humbly confess our sins, and in faith receive cleansing.
PRAYER OF CONFESSION: God, we have sinned against you. We have spoken against you and your servant Jesus. We have uttered lies. We have cursed you and others. We have said vulgar things. We have been consumed by doubt. We have been bitten with the venom of hatred in our world. We have oppressed the helpless. We have been intolerant of others. We have delighted in violence. We have spent money foolishly. Please, Lord God, forgive us our transgressions, that we may be healed of our sin.
Time of Reflection
ASSURANCE OF PARDON: Hear now the loving truth of God: God did not send the Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. Those who believe in Him are not condemned. For, those who have received and believe in Him are justified and forgiven through Him.
HYMN: “To God Be the Glory”
PRAYER FOR ILLUMINATION
Old Testament: Numbers 21:4-9
New Testament: John 3:14-21

THE PRAYER OF THANKSGIVING
