Introit “Holy God, We Praise Your Name”
Prayer of the Day (unison)
Almighty God, to whom all hearts are open, all desires known, and from whom no secrets are hidden; cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of your Holy Spirit, so that we may truly love you and worthily praise your holy name; through our Saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen.
Hymn #469 “Morning Has Broken”
Call to Confession
Prayer of Confession (unison)
God of grace and compassion, your sprit follows us no matter where we are. Through your presence, we are given strength in times of hardship. But, we deny your presence. We proclaim our independence, and turn from our community. We value our own pride over your love. God forgive us, and draw us back to you. Remind us of your call to love our neighbor. Remind us that all people are children of God, and deserving of love. Amen.
Declaration of Pardon
Leader: Hear and believe the good news of the gospel.
People: In Jesus Christ we are forgiven.
Gloria Patri Hymn #579
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost;
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
world without end. Amen.
