Call to Worship
Come and Worship, for we know all things work together for good
Glory be to the Creator, and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost
God’s Kingdom is without end, for God is the Alpha and the Omega
For those who love God are called according to God’s purpose
God created the world and called it good.
As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be. Amen. Amen.
Prayer of Confession (unison based on Rom 8:31, 38-39) Holy Spirit, we confess that we have trouble with moving sometimes. The water is here, and we are here. What are the stumbling blocks for baptism? What are the pieces of our call to be Christian that we miss? Where did we hurry past or have trouble seeing you are work. Where do we miss the times of welcome and hospitality both in our church and in our lives. Be with us and help us to recognize your kingdom at work today we pray. (Silent Prayer) …Amen
Assurance of Pardon: (based on Rom 8:31, 38-39) Remember, this, God is for us. If God is for us, who can be against us, we no that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers. Neither things in the present or even all the things that are still to come. We cannot be too high or dig too deep or have any single thing in all creation that will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus. For this reason we proclaim Jesus is our Lord, and for this we proclaim: In Jesus Christ we are forgiven.
Prayer of Dedication (unison) Beloved, let us go into the world and love one another, because love is from God; everyone who love is born of God and knows God. It is in God’s love, not that we love God, but that God loved us, that we ought to go forth loving one another. If we love one another, God lives in us, and God’s love is perfected in us. So let us go into love, we pray. Amen.
