Season of Epiphany
Prelude
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.
Introit
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
God has given us the dawning of a new day.
The heavens keep telling the wonders of God.
Welcome to worship in God's new day!
God's ways are perfect and give us new life.
God's instruction is right; it makes our hearts glad.
God's commands shine brightly, giving us light. Thanks be to God!
Centering Prayer
Awesome and ever-present God, your call to us stretches us beyond what we ever thought possible. Your infinite grace comes to us in abundance that we could never have dreamed of. Forgive our being cautious in our commitment to you.
Silent meditation
In Jesus' name we pray. Amen.
Words of Assurance
Hear the good news: God's love never ends. In Christ, we are forgiven. Thanks be to God!
