WELCOME and ANNOUNCEMENTS

*CALL TO WORSHIP

People of God, worship the living God today!  Remember that out of nothing God created the heavens and earth.

Remember that God raised Jesus from the powerlessness of death to the power of his right hand.

Remember that not even the gates of hell can stand against God’s purposes.

Behold our God, who reigns now and forever!

*HYMN                                         “Here in This Place” (v. 1, 2, 4)                                #401 PURPLE

CALL TO CONFESSION

When we gather to praise God, we remember that we are people who have preferred our wills to his. Accepting his power to become new persons in Christ, let us confess our sin before God and one another.

PRAYER OF CONFESSION

Most gracious and most merciful God, we confess to you and to one another that time after time we have entered your presence with countless prayers but with hearts that have been closed to your grace. We have lifted our hands to you in praise, but our feet have still walked in the ways of evil. We have rehearsed your commandments but have refused to see your face in the needs of our neighbor. We pray, Lord, that you forgive our lack of faith and pardon our acts of injustice. Grant us the healing that comes from your presence and the cleansing of your all-powerful Word, through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
