With the whole church, let us confess our faith. Do you believe in God the Father?
I believe in God, the Father Almighty: Maker of heaven and earth;
Do you believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God?
And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, 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 living and the dead.
Do you believe in the Holy Spirit?
I believe in the Holy Spirit; 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
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 is over the waters; the God of glory thunders, the Lord, over mighty waters.
The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is full of majesty.
The voice of the Lord breaks cedars; the Lord breaks the cedars of Lebanon.
He makes Lebanon skip like a calf, and Sirion like a young wild ox.
The Lord sits enthroned over the flood;
The Lord sits enthroned as king forever.
May the Lord give strength to his people!
May the Lord bless his people with peace!
Prayer Of Confession
Eternal and Almighty God, as we enter Your holy presence, we acknowledge that our lips are unclean, our hands are unclean, our hearts are unclean. Our sins are too dark for us to face, and too heavy for us to bear. In Your tender compassion, show us mercy. Purify us with the coal from Your altar. Fill our mouths with Your word, our hands with Your work, our hearts with Your love, according to Your perfect will. Sanctify us by Your grace, that we may be holy, as You are holy; eternally one God, with all power and majesty Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
(Silent prayer of personal confession.)
Call To Confession (Psalm 25:16-18)
With the Psalmist, we lift our voices to God: “To You, O Lord, I call; my rock, do not refuse to hear me,
For if You are silent to me, I shall be like those who go down to the Pit.
Hear the voice of my supplication, as I cry to You for help,
As I lift up my hands toward Your most holy sanctuary.” (Psalm 28:1-2)
Together we cry out to God for help and confess our sins, praying.....
Almighty God, who loves Your children with unconditional overflowing love like a mother, we are most grateful for Your not forsaking us because of our faithlessness in returning love to You. Strengthen us in our faith so that we may love You generously through our talents and gifts in helping others glorify You in worship, by feeding those who are hungry, by helping families keep shelter over themselves, through our financial giving, and with our compassion funded by the grace of Jesus Christ our Lord. 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.

Purge your own hearts of sin through Christ's shed blood;
To aid you on your way till shadows flee, And Christ you see in his eternal day.
