Holy Spirit Medley 2Randy Wolthuis
00:00 / 02:09

Spirit of the Living God, fall fresh on me
Spirit of the Living God, fall fresh on me
Melt me, mold me, fill me, use me
Spirit of the Living God, fall fresh on me

Spirit of God descend upon my heart
wean it from earth thro' all its pulses move
Stoop to my weakness, mighty as thou art
and make me love thee as I ought to love

Declaration of Trust & God's Greeting

People of Jesus Christ, in whom are you trusting?

Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.

Grace, mercy and peace to you

in the name of the father, and the Son and the Holy Spirit 

Amen.

"Almighty God"  (Sandra McCracken)

Time of Confession
Call to Confession  Psalm 139:23-24

Search me, God, and know my heart;
    test me and know my anxious thoughts.
See if there is any offensive way in me,
    and lead me in the way everlasting.

Prayer of Confession  references to Hebrews 12:14

O gracious and gentle and condescending God,

God of peace, Father of mercy, God of all comfort:

we confess before you the evil of our hearts;

we acknowledge that we are too inclined

toward anger, jealousy, and revenge,

to ambition and pride,

which often give rise to discord and bitter feelings 

between others and us.

We have not made "every effort to live in peace with everyone

and to be holy." 

Too often we have both offended and grieved you,

O long-suffering Father.

Forgive us this sin and permit us to partake of the blessing

you have promised the peacemakers,

who shall be called the children of God.

Through Jesus Christ, our Lord,

in whose holy name we pray. Amen.

Words of Assurance  Psalm 145:13-14

The LORD is faithful in all his words, and gracious in all his deeds.

The LORD upholds all who are falling, and raises up all who are bowed down.

 Sharing Christ's Peace

Because God has given us his peace, we are invited to share the peace of Christ with others. Whether digitally through a text message or by turning to someone next to you, share the peace of Christ now with the words: "The peace of Christ be with you!" If you are on the receiving end of these words, you are invited to reply, "And also with you."

         The Peace of Christ be with you.

          And also with you!

Offering

A life of generosity, for all who know Christ, means the opportunity to draw closer to God, now and in eternity. It means joy, a fulfilled heart, and the potential to store up treasures in heaven. Once you take hold of it, once you begin to feel the change generosity brings into your life, you will feel a strong calling to share the message with others.
