Gathering Around the Word
Prelude Music Director Robert Senay
CALL TO WORSHIP from Psalm 12
Help, Lord, for the godly are no more;
the faithful have vanished from among men and women.
Everyone lies to his or her neighbor;
their flattering lips speak with deception.
May the Lord cut off all flattering lips and every boastful tongue, because of the groaning of the needy.
“I will now arise,” says the Lord.
“I will protect My people from those who malign them.”
The words of the Lord are flawless,
like silver refined in a furnace, purified seven times.
O Lord, You will keep us Your people safe, and You will
protect us from such wicked and evil people forever.
INVOCATION Dr. Domsk
*Hymn “Come, Christians, Join to Sing” # 267
PRAYER OF CONFESSION (UNISON)
Heavenly Father, we are Your children and You protect us.
We have been bought by the blood of Your Precious Son,
but we act as if we have created our own salvation.
We act as petulant children, always wanting our own way.
We have become complacent and apathetic toward our
responsibilities as members of the Family of God.
Forgive us, O Father. We have sinned. We have looked
at life only from our own selfish point of view. Help our
spirits to realize that we are nothing without Your grace.
