Concerns of the Church

Call to Worship (Philippians 2:14-16)

Leader: Do all things without murmurings and disputings:

People: That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation,

Leader: Among whom ye shine as lights in the world;

People: Holding forth the word of life.

Opening Prayer

Prayer of Confession: (in unison)

Almighty and most merciful Father, we have erred and strayed from thy ways like lost sheep. We have followed too much the devices and desires of our own hearts. We have offended against thy holy laws. We have left undone those things which we ought to have done, and we have done those things which we ought not to have done. But thou, 0 Lord, have mercy upon us. Spare thou those, 0 God, who confess their faults. Restore thou those who are penitent; according to thy promises declared unto mankind in Christ Jesus our Lord. And grant, 0 most merciful Father, for his sake, that we may hereafter live a godly, righteous, and sober life; to the glory of thy holy name. Amen.

Declaration of Forgiveness (Romans 8:38-39)

Leader: For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature,

People: Shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
