CALL TO CONFESSION               (Please Be Seated)


PRAYER OF CONFESSION (In Unison)                                                                                  

God we confess we use your name without understanding.  We claim to be your children without knowing what that requires of us.  We confess we are the ones who hold you at a distance.  We seek to know you better, to open ourselves to your revelation.  Help us to recognize when we hear and see you around us. 




ASSURANCE OF PARDON                          


RESPONSE 353 (Vs. 1)                My Hope is Built on Nothing Less               SOLID ROCK

My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus' blood and righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame, but wholly lean on Jesus' name.

On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand; all other ground is sinking sand;

all other ground is sinking sand.

*AFFIRMATION OF FAITH (In Unison)                                                              by Lisa Frenz

We believe in God, the Eternal Spirit, who is made known to us in Jesus our brother, and to whose deeds we testify:

     God calls the worlds into being, creates humankind in the divine image, and sets before us the ways of life and death.

     God seeks in holy love to save all people from aimlessness and sin.

     God judges all humanity and all nations by that will of righteousness declared through prophets and apostles.

     In Jesus Christ, the man of Nazareth, our crucified and risen Lord, God has come to us and shared our common lot, conquering sin and death and reconciling the whole creation to its Creator.

     God bestows upon us the Holy Spirit, creating and renewing the church of Jesus Christ, binding in covenant faithful people of all ages, tongues, and races.

     God calls us into the church to accept the cost and joy of discipleship, to be servants in the service of the whole human family, to proclaim the gospel to all the world and resist the powers of evil, to share in Jesus’ baptism and eat at his table, to join him in his passion and victory.

     God promises to all who trust in the gospel forgiveness of sins and fullness of grace, courage in the struggle for justice and peace, the presence of the Holy Spirit in trial and rejoicing, and eternal life in that dominion which has no end.

     Blessing and honor, glory and power be unto God.  Amen.
