Prayer of Confession

Prayer of Confession:

Source of all that gives us life,
we have turned away from your
authority to our own small concerns.

Forgive us for our failure to bear one
another's burdens, for boasting of
anything but your cross, 
for believing in our own power to justify
our lives, and for denying your call
to takeconfort in you alone.

Gather us within the circle of your
grace that in all we do,
we may honor your name.


 Silent Confession

Declaration of Forgiveness:

In the name of the One who died and rose for us, our sins are forgiven and we are made whole and new.

Thanks be to God

Call to Worship:

Call to Worship:

We do not proclaim ourselves;
we proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord
and ourselves as servants for Jesu's sake.

For God has shone in our hearts to give knowledge of the glory of God.

Sisters and brothers, praise the Lord!

The Lord's name be praised!
