Hymn: 463 How Firm a Foundation
Call to worship: (Psalm 96)
Leader: O sing to the Lord a new song;
All: sing to the Lord, all the earth.
Leader: Sing, and give praise to God’s name;
All: tell the glad news of salvation from day to day.
Opening prayer of confession
Almighty God, to whom all hearts are open, all desires, known, and from whom no secrets are hid: we confess that we have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed, by what we have done, and by what we have left undone. We have not loved you with our whole heart and mind and strength. We have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. In your mercy forgive what we have been, help us amend what we are, and direct what we shall be, so that we may delight in your will and walk in your ways, to the glory of your holy name.
Assurance of Pardon:
Anyone who is in Christ is a new creation. The old life has gone; a new life has begun. Know that you are forgiven and be at peace.
Thanks be to God!
