ANNOUNCEMENTS

LET US PREPARE FOR WORSHIP

  • CALL TO WORSHIP
Leader: Come together to hear the word of our God. Listen carefully to the commandments we are given.
People: We are not ashamed of the gospel. It is the power of God for our salvation.
Leader: Receive God’s word in your minds and your souls. Discuss that word with one another at home.
People: We seek to live by faith and trust. We want our children to know God’s truth.
Leader: God offers a blessing to all who obey. Those who follow other gods find themselves cursed.
People: We need one another to live faithfully. We are here to support one another in this quest.

*OPENING PRAYER

PRAYER OF CONFESSION
God, our rock and refuge, there are plenty of things that we allow to erode our faith in you. When life gets stormy, we let our uncertainty cloud our trust in you. We think we know better and start relying on ourselves to be able to weather the rain. Forgive our lack of hope and the disbelief that drowns us.
(moment of silent confession). Allow us to hold on to you, our rock, and to build our lives on the foundation of your love. In the name of Jesus Christ, our stalwart and our shelter, we pray. Amen
