Concerns of the Church

Call to Worship (Revelation 7:9-10)

Leader: I saw a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, robed in white, with palm branches in their hands.

People: They cried out in a loud voice, saying, "Salvation belongs to our God who is seated on the throne, and to the Lamb!"

Opening Prayer

Prayer of Confession: (in unison)

Eternal God, in every age you have raised up men and women to live and die in faith. We confess that we are indifferent to your will. You call us to proclaim your name, but we are silent. You call us to do what is just, but we remain idle. You call us to live faithfully, but we are afraid.In your mercy, forgive us. Give us courage to follow in your way.Enable us to join with those from ages past, who have served you with faith, hope, and love, So that like them we may inherit the kingdom you promised in Jesus Christ. In the name of Christ, the only begotten Son, our savior and Lord, we pray. 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).
