*Call to Worship (Adapted from Psalm 9)

People: Let us trust in you and sing praises to your holy name! 

*Opening Prayer 

*Hymn 319 “Men of Faith, Rise Up and Sing” 

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

*Call to Confession (adapted from Isaiah 59.12-13) 

Our transgressions before God are many and our sins testify against us. Our transgressions indeed are with us, and we know our iniquities: transgressing, and denying the Lord, and turning away from following our God. Let us seek God’s forgiveness. 

*Silent Prayer 

*Prayer of Confession 

Eternal God, our judge and redeemer, we confess that we have tried to hide from you, for we have done wrong. We have lived for ourselves, and apart from you. We have turned from our neighbors and refused to bear the burdens of others. We have ignored the pain of the world, and passed by the hungry, the poor, and the oppressed. In your great mercy forgive our sins and free us from selfishness, that we may choose your will and obey your commandments; through Jesus Christ our Savior. Amen

*Assurance of Pardon 

*Gloria Patri (Hymn 581)
