*Call to Worship (Adapted from Psalm 8)

Leader: O Lord, our Sovereign, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens.

People: When we look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars that you have established;

Leader: what are human beings that you are mindful of us, mortals that you care for us?

People: Yet you have made us a little lower than God, and crowned us with glory and honor.

Leader: You have given us dominion over the works of your hands; you have put all things under our feet.

People: O Lord, our Sovereign, how majestic is your name in all the earth!

*Opening Prayer

*Hymn 1 “Holy, Holy, Holy!”

(The ushers will collect prayer cards during the singing of this hymn.)

*Call to Confession (Adapted from Psalm 145)

The Lord is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. The Lord is good to all, and his compassion is over all that he has made. Let us confess our sins to our Lord.

*Silent Prayer

*Responsive Prayer of Confession

Heavenly Father, giver of all good things: for your mercy and grace we give you thanks. Christ, our Redeemer: For your sacrifice on the cross

and rising from death that we might live,we give you thanks and praise. Holy Spirit, giver of life: For your abiding presence in our lives

and for comforting and guiding us, we give you thanks, praise, and glory. Father, Son, and Holy Spirit: we confess that we have failed to love

you with all our heart, soul, and mind; and to love our neighbor as

ourselves. Forgive our sin and raise us to new life that we may serve you faithfully and give honor to your holy name.

To you be glory and praise now and forever. Amen.

*Assurance of Pardon

*Gloria Patri (Hymn 581)
