Call to Worship
When the idols surrounding us, distress us.
We come seeking God
When we talk to the unknown one
We come seeking God
When we wonder at how we live, and move and breathe.
We come seeking God. Come let us seek God together starting with worship, so that we might seek God throughout our lives.

Prayer of Confession: (unison) God, we confess that we are surrounded by idols, we confess that we do not like “the unknown” so we make things feel safe, putting them in stereotypes or boxes, trying to master knowledge of all things. I confess that I don’t always know how to worship, because faith and God still remain a mystery to me. Comfort me, lord, teach me how to wonder and hope at your grace I pray. (Silent Confession). Amen

 

Assurance of Pardon: (Romans 8:34) Who is in a position to condemn? Only Christ, and Christ died for us, Christ rose for us, Christ reigns in power for us, Christ prays for us. Friends, believe the good news of the gospel. People: In Jesus Christ we are forgiven! In Jesus Christ we are forgiven. Amen

Prayer of Dedication: Let us go into the world dedicating ourselves to you, and teaching people about that they too the offspring of God. Amen.
