Call to Worship

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good,
for his steadfast love endures forever.
Give thanks to the God of gods,
for his steadfast love endures forever.
Give thanks to the Lord of lords,
for his steadfast love endures forever;

to him who alone does great wonders,
for his steadfast love endures forever;
to him who by understanding made the heavens,
for his steadfast love endures forever;
to him who spread out the earth above the waters,
for his steadfast love endures forever;
to him who made the great lights,
for his steadfast love endures forever;
the sun to rule over the day,
for his steadfast love endures forever;
the moon and stars to rule over the night,
for his steadfast love endures forever.

Call to Confession      Joel 2:12-13

“Yet even now,” declares the Lord, “return to me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning;
and rend your hearts and not your garments.”  Return to the Lord your God, for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love; and he relents over disaster.

Let us confess our sins

Prayer of Confession  (unison)

Have mercy on us, O God, according to your unfailing love; according to your great compassion.  Blot out our transgression.  Wash away all our iniquity and cleanse us from our sin.  For we know our transgressions, and our sin is always before us.  Against you, you only have we sinned and done what is evil in your sight, so that you are proved right when you speak and justified when you judge.
