"Join All the Glorious Names"

Opening Prayer

Lord our God,
Open our eyes to see your glory.
Open our ears to hear your wisdom.
Open our hands to offer you gifts.
Open our mouths to sing your praise.
Open our hearts to offer you love.
Jesus is Lord! We worship with joy!

Time of Confession
Call to Confession 

When we come into the holy presence of God,
our own humanity is laid bare.
When we stand in the living presence of truth,
our own falsehood is revealed.
People of God, let us acknowledge who we are
and ask our ever-present God to forgive us.

Prayer of Confession

Wondrous God, who sets suns and moons above us,
mountains and valleys beneath us,
and friends and strangers among us:
how often have we tried to hide from your presence,
how seldom have we looked f
or your creating face
and your fashioning hand!
Lord, have mercy upon us.

Wondrous God,
who took upon yourself flesh of our flesh in Jesus our brother,
and being found in human form made the ultimate disclosure of yourself
in the face of Jesus Christ:
how often we have forgotten you,
how seldom have we really loved and followed you!

Christ, have mercy upon us. 

Wondrous God,
who pours out freely the Holy Spirit:
how often have we ignored your promptings,
how seldom have we asked for your help or accepted your gifts!

Lord, have mercy upon us. Amen.

Words of Assurance 

In the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus,
we are assured that there is no sin so terrible that God cannot forgive,
no hurt so terrible that God cannot heal.

Therefore, since we have a great high priest
who has gone through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God,
we know we receive mercy and grace unto forgiveness.
In Christ, God accepts, God forgives, and God sets free.
Receive the forgiving love of God.
Thanks be to God.

"I Surrender All"  (Selah)

You are invited to pray as you listen or sing to the following song...

 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.

Our Response

"My Jesus, I Love Thee"  (Amy Grant)    

                        Lyrcis below     

My Jesus, I love thee, I know thou art mine
for Thee all the follies of sin I resign
My gracious Redeemer, my Savior art thou
if ever I loved thee, my Jesus 'tis now

I love thee because thou hast first loved me
and purchased my pardon on Calvary's tree
I love thee for wearing the thorns on thy brow
if ever I loved thee, my Jesus 'tis now

I'll love thee in life, I will love thee in death
and praise thee as long as thou lendest me breath
And say when the death dew lies cold on my brow
if ever I loved thee, my Jesus 'tis now

In mansions of glory and endless delight
I'll ever adore thee in heaven so bright
I'll sing with the glittering crown on my brow
if ever I loved thee, my Jesus 'tis now

Benediction (unison)

And now, to Jesus Christ, who loves us

and freed us from our sins by his blood

and made us to be a kingdom,

priests of his God and Father,

to him be glory and dominion forever and ever.

Amen.
