Order of Worship


Prelude – Nancy Gunter

Blest Are the Contrite Hearts




Call to Worship

Leader: We come before God as equals in God’s sight.

People: God knows us thoroughly and loves us completely.

Leader: None of us is perfect and without blemish.

People: Yet God has called us God’s children and asked us to be compassionate and responsible in our caring and witness.

Leader: We are called to joyful obedience in God’s realm.

People: Thanks be to God who trusts us and pours God’s abundant love on us. Amen.


Opening Prayer (Unison)

Lord, everywhere we look we see the imprint of your creative love. The wondrous works of nature show your majesty. As we gather today to celebrate your love and creation, keep us mindful that we are part of that created order, meant to be stewards and not destroyers. Prepare us to work for you in ministries of peace and justice. Amen.     


Opening Hymn

To God Be the Glory


Affirmation of Faith

Leader: Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation or distress, or persecution or famine, or nakedness or peril or sword?

People: No! In all things we are more than conquerors through the One who loved us. We are sure that neither death nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Thanks be to God! Amen.
