PRELUDE & CANDLE LIGHTING

 

WELCOME

 

*CALL TO WORSHIP  
Sing to the Lord and bless God’s name!
Tell of God’s salvation every day!
Declare God’s glory above all;
For we still worship false gods and seek worldly pleasures.
Give glory to God, all peoples of the earth!
We give glory and honor and praise to God, 

who made us all and calls us together to worship.

Adapted from Psalm 96:2-5 by the Rev. Mindi Welton-Mitchell, http://rev-o-lution.org.

 

*OPENING PRAYER

 

*OPENING HYMN  #336  O Worship the King

 

PRAYER OF CONFESSION

God of everlasting love, we confess that we have been unfaithful to our covenant with you and with one another.  

We have worshiped other gods:  money, power, greed, and convenience.  

We have not loved our neighbor as you have commanded, nor have we rightly loved ourselves.

Forgive us, gracious God, and bring us back into the fullness of our covenant with you and one another.  Through Christ our Lord.  Amen.
