Gathering Around the Word
CALL TO WORSHIP: from Psalm 43
Vindicate me, O God. Plead my cause against an ungodly nation.
Rescue me from deceitful and wicked people.
You are God my stronghold. Do not reject me.
Send forth Your light and Your Truth. Let them guide me.
Let Your Light and Truth bring me to Your holy mountain.
Let Your Light and Truth guide me.
Then I will go to the altar of God and praise You.
God is my joy and my delight.
I will praise You with the harp and music, O God my God.
My soul should not be downcast within me.
Put your hope in God, my God.
I will yet praise Him, my Savior and my God.
HYMN “God of Grace and God of Glory” # 307
Intro / 4 verses
* PRAYER OF CONFESSION: (unison)
O Lord, I am short-tempered with those who do not pay attention.
I am short-tempered with those who do not learn.
Yet I refuse to stop being selfish. I refuse to love others first.
I refuse to stop sinning.
Forgive me. Help me to accept the atoning gift of Your Son.
Help me to appreciate fully that Christ died for me.
Help me to love my neighbor as myself. I long to be forgiven.
I am sorry I have sinned.
*Time of silent prayer:
*Assurance of Pardon
*Response – Gloria Patri
*Passing of the peace
The peace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
And also, with you.
