Hymn: Be Still My Soul
Call to Worship
A new world awaits through an open door. Welcome into the house of God where you can discover renewal and new life. Find help and blessing in the presence of God. There also, find joy and forgiveness as we are all a part of the family of God.
Prayer of Confession
We confess to you, O God, that we have not yet become totally changed into your image and likeness. There seems to be more dust and clay in us than there is spirit and light. We are centered in our own lives, rather than yours. We find time to do the things that are really important to us but we have little time for you and our neighbors. Give us your strength and faith to trust in you and your way. We ask it all in your holy name this Sabbath morning.
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: Leaning on the Everlasting Arms
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 Illumination
Sermon: Our Journey of Faith and the American Dream
Hymn: I Am Trusting Thee Lord Jesus
Prayer of Thanksgiving
Lift up your hearts
We lift them up to the Lord
Let us give thanks to the Lord our God
It is right to give God thanks and praise
