Prelude (Video)…..….……………………………………….. Draw Me Close to You
Listen and center yourself for worship. If you are so moved, sing or hum along.
Call to Worship
Raise your voices in response to God’s goodness. We praise you, O Lord, for all the blessings you have given us.
Lift your hearts in sweet surrender to God’s mercy. We thank you, O Lord, for hearing the prayers of our hearts.
God is good; Praise be to God! The love and mercy of God never fails. AMEN.
Opening Prayer BOW 479
Almighty God, we confess that we are often swept up in the tide of our generation. We have failed in our calling to be your holy people, a people set apart for your divine purpose. We live more in apathy born of fatalism than in passion born of hope. We are moved more by private ambition than by social justice. We dream more of privilege and benefits than of service an sacrifice. We try to speak in your name without relinquishing our glories, without nourishing our souls, without wholly relying on your grace. Help us to make room in our hearts and lives for you. Forgive us, revive us, and reshape us in your image. Amen.
*Welcoming the Light of Christ
Light your candle to symbolize the light of Christ in the world, in your life, and in your space.

Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever. Amen.
