Call to Worship

Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth!
Serve the Lord with gladness!
Come into his presence with singing!

Know that the Lord, he is God!
It is he who made us, and we are his;
we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

Enter his gates with thanksgiving,
and his courts with praise!
Give thanks to him; bless his name!

For the Lord is good;
his steadfast love endures forever,
and his faithfulness to all generations.

Call to Confession      Micah 6:8

He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

Let us confess our sins

Prayer of Confession  (unison)

O most merciful God, Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who pardons all that repent and truly turn to you; we humbly confess our sins and implore you for your mercy.  We have not loved you with a pure heart fervently; neither have we loved our neighbors as ourselves.  We have not done justly, nor loved mercy, nor walked humbly with you.  Have mercy upon us now, Lord, according to your loving kindness; according to the multitude of your tender mercies, blot out our iniquity.  Create in us a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within us.  Cast us not away from your presence and take not your Holy Spirit from us.  Restore to us the joy of your salvation and uphold us with your Spirit.
