Lighting of the Christ Candle
A New Creed: 918
We are not alone; we live in God's world. We believe in God: who has created and is creating; who has come in Jesus, the Word made flesh, to reconcile and make new; who works in us and others by the Spirit. We trust in God. We are called to be the Church: to celebrate God's presence; to live with respect in Creation; to love and serve others; to seek justice and resist evil; to proclaim Jesus, crucified and risen, our judge and our hope. In life, in death, in life beyond death, God is with us. We are not alone. Thanks be to God.
I will celebrate, sing unto the Lord. I will sing to Him a new song.
I will praise Him, I will sing to Him a new song.
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, I will sing to Him a new song.
I will praise Him, I will sing to Him a new song.
Call to Worship (Responsive)
Come, let us gather in this hour of worship as we turn to our source of strength.
God's love for us is always present.
God's faithfulness is everlasting, and God's mercies are eternal.
Through our worship, let us be strengthened and inspired. Thanks be to God!
Gathering Prayer (In unison)
God of peace, help us know your love in this time of worship; help us hear your voice in all we say and do. Help us to see you more clearly in all our activities and
in the faces and voices of the people we meet each day. Keep us mindful of your constant presence.
Silent meditation
We pray in Jesus's name, Amen.
Words of Assurance
Let us hear the good news; we are loved, forgiven, and accepted. Thanks be to God.
