CALL TO WORSHIP
All who thirst, come to the water
and drink deeply of the these living streams.
Come, all who are weary:
come, all who yearn for forgiveness.
As the waters of the Jordan washed over Jesus,
so the Holy Spirit washed over you and me.
Our gracious God beckons and blesses us.
Let us give praise for new life in Christ.
PASSING OF THE PEACE The peace of the Lord be always with you. And also with you.
"Take, O take me as I am" M.V. 85

CHIDREN'S TIME LIGHTING OF THE CHRIST CANDLE LORD'S PRAYER
PRAYER OF CONFESSION AND ASSURANCE OF PARDON
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.
