I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; he descended into hell; the third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy catholic Church; the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting. Amen.

Call To Worship (Psalm 29:1-2, 9-10)
Ascribe to the Lord, O heavenly beings, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength,
Ascribe to the Lord the glory of His name; worship the Lord in holy splendor.
The voice of the Lord causes the oaks to whirl, and strips the forest bare;
And in His temple all say, “Glory!”
May the Lord give strength to the people!
May the Lord bless His people with peace!
Prayer Of Confession
Almighty God, Who sent the promised power of the Holy Spirit to fill disciples with willing faith: we confess that we have held back the force of Your Spirit among us; that we have been slow to serve You, and reluctant to spread the good news of Your love. God, have mercy on us. Forgive our divisions, and by Your Spirit draw us together. Fill us with flaming desire to do Your will and be faithful people, for the sake of Your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ.
(Silent prayer of personal confession.)
Call To Confession
With the Psalmist we say, “There is no soundness in my flesh because of Your indignation;
There is no health in my bones because of my sin.
For my iniquities have gone over my head;
They weigh like a burden too heavy for me.” (Psalm 38:3-4)
With such sin weighing on us, let us be unburdened through confessing our sins together by praying....
Be passionately filled with life given by the Holy Spirit.
We shall bear the fruit of the Spirit so that all can see whose we are.
God of steadfast love, who generously gave Your beloved Son for the world, receive our gifts given in response to Your gracious love. Bless these gifts so that they may make a difference in our community and world, to Your glory, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen.
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.
