Concerns of the Church

Call to Worship (Mark 1:14-15)

Leader: Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,

People: And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.

Opening Prayer

Prayer of Confession (in unison)

God of glory, you sent Jesus among us as the light of the world, to reveal your love for all people. We confess that our sin and pride hide the brightness of your light. We turn away from the poor; we ignore cries for justice; we do not strive for peace. In your mercy, cleanse us of our sin. Baptize us once again with your Spirit. Forgive us and renew us so that we may show forth that glory that people saw shining in the face of Jesus. This we ask in the name of the only-begotten Son of God, Jesus Christ the Lord. Amen.

Declaration of Forgiveness

Leader: The saying is sure and worthy of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners (I Timothy 1:15).

People: He himself bore our sins in his body on the cross, so that, free from sins, we might live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed (I Peter 2:24).
