PREPARATION FOR WORSHIP #411    God is Here Today                DIOS ESTA AQUI

God is here today; as certain as the air I breathe,

As certain as the morning sun that rises,

As certain when I sing you’ll hear my song.

    

*CALL TO WORSHIP (Responsive)  (Please Stand)

  In your wisdom, O God, you call us here to worship you.

     We gather, alive to the Word of God.

You call us to be fully alive with your life abundant, ready to listen and respond with heart, soul, strength, and mind. 

     We listen, alive to the Word of God.

You call us to be always watchful for your Word of wisdom, sometimes startling and unexpected, sometimes still and quiet, but always dwelling among us.

     We watch and wait for the Word of God.

CALL TO CONFESSION             (Please Be Seated)  

 

PRAYER OF CONFESSION (In Unison)

Gracious God, our sins are too heavy to carry, too real to hide, and too deep to undo. Forgive what our lips tremble to name, what our hearts can no longer bear, and what has become for us a consuming fire of judgment. Set us free from a past that we cannot change; open to us a future in which we can be changed; and grant us grace to grow more and more in your likeness and image; through Jesus Christ, the light of the world. Amen.

Through darkness and perplexity point thou the heavenly way.

 

*PASSING OF THE PEACE                                                                                                

The peace of Christ be with you all.

*AFFIRMATION OF FAITH (In Unison)                             Heidelberg Catechism

I am called Christian because by faith I am a member of Christ and so I share in his anointing. I am anointed to confess his name, to present myself to him as a living sacrifice of thanks, to strive with a good conscience against sin and the devil in this life, and afterward to reign with Christ over all creation for all eternity. We call him “our Lord” because—not with gold or silver, but with his precious blood—he has set us free from sin and from the tyranny of the devil, and has bought us, body and soul, to be his very own.

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your 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 yours is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever.  Amen.
