CALL TO WORSHIP (Psalm 29)
Ascribe to the Lord, O mighty ones,
ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
Ascribe to the Lord the glory due His name.
Worship the Lord in the splendor of His holiness.
The voice of the Lord is over the waters;
The God of glory thunders over the mighty waters.
The voice of the Lord is powerful.
The voice of the Lord strikes with flashes of lightning.
The Lord sits enthroned over the flood;
The Lord is enthroned as King forever.
The Lord gives strength to His people;
The Lord blesses His people with peace.
* HYMN “Rejoice, the Lord is King!” # 363
* PRAYER OF CONFESSION (UNISON)
Almighty God, in raising Jesus from the grave, You shattered the power of sin and death. We confess that we remain captive to doubt and fear, bound by the ways that lead to death. We overlook the poor and the hungry and pass by those who mourn.
We choose to walk in the selfish ways of this world.
Forgive us, O God of Mercy, and help us to trust Your power to
change our lives and make us new. Usher us into the joy of abundant life given in Jesus Christ, the risen Lord.
