March 8, 2020: Second Sunday of Lent

 

PRELUDE & CANDLE LIGHTING

 

WELCOME

 

*CALL TO WORSHIP 

We gather in this season of Lent to journey to the cross with Jesus, 

knowing that death will give way to life.

We want to follow Jesus, who did not come to be served, but to serve.

We want to learn from Jesus, and live like him.  We want to think like Jesus.

Let us worship God, who has loved us and saved us through Jesus Christ.

Let us praise God for the grace that has saved us!

 

*OPENING PRAYER

 

*PRAISE SONGS

 

PRAYER OF CONFESSION

O God, you have shown us the way of life through your Son, Jesus Christ.

We confess our slowness to learn from him, our failure to follow him, and our reluctance to bear the cross. 

Have mercy on us, Lord, and forgive us.

We confess the poverty of our worship, our self-seeking ways, and our desire to be served rather than to serve.

Have mercy on us, Lord, and forgive us.

THE LORD’S PRAYER

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.  Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread.  And forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors.  Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.  For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever.  Amen.
