WELCOME

CALL TO WORSHIP
Let us worship the eternal God,
the source of love and life, who creates us.
Let us worship Jesus Christ,
the risen one, who lives among us.
Let us worship the Spirit,
the holy fire, who renews us.
To the one true God be praise in all times and places,
through the grace of Jesus Christ.

OPENING SONG 

How Deep the Father’s Love

 Verse 1:  How deep the Father’s love for us,
How vast beyond all measure,
That He should give His only Son,
To make a wretch His treasure.
How great the pain of searing loss,
The Father turns His face away,
As wounds which mar the Chosen One
Bring many sons to glory.

 Verse 3:  I will not boast in anything,
No gifts, no power, no wisdom;
But I will boast in Jesus Christ, His death and resurrection.
Why should I gain from His reward?
I cannot give an answer,
But this I know with all my heart,
His wounds have paid my ransom.

PRAYER OF CONFESSION
Eternal God, we confess that often we have failed
to be an obedient church:
we have not done your will;
we have broken your law;
we have not loved our neighbors;
we have not heard the cry of the needy.
Forgive us, we pray.
Free us for joyful obedience.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

Bind us together, Lord, bind us together
With cords that cannot be broken
Bind us together, Lord, bind us together
Bind us together with love.

There is only one God.
There is only one King.
There is only one body.
That is why I sing.
