*RESPONSIVE CALL TO WORSHIP
The Lord is just in all his ways,

The Lord is near to all who call on him,

*OUR RESPONSE
*APOSTLES’ CREED
Red Hymnbook, page 12
I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker
of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ his only
Son our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy
Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under
Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; he
descended into hell; the third day he rose again
from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and
sitteth on the right hand of God the Father
Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the
quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost,
the holy catholic church; the communion of saints;
the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the
body; and the life everlasting. Amen

evil: for thine is the kingdom, and the power, and
the glory, forever. Amen.

PRAYER OF ADORATION AND CONFESSION
(By All)
Holy and merciful God, in your presence we confess
our sinfulness, our shortcomings, and our offenses
against you. You alone know how often we have
sinned in wandering from your ways, in wasting
your gifts, in forgetting your love. Have mercy on
us, O Lord, for we are ashamed and sorry for all we
have done to displease you. Forgive our sins, and
help us to live in your light, and walk in your ways,
for the sake of Jesus Christ our Savior. And now,
dear Lord, hear the prayers deep within the silence
of our hearts . . . .
