Prayer of Confession All: God of grace and God of mercy, we know that following Jesus is a struggle, for his way leads to the cross. When we have been faithful, strengthen us. When we have disappointed you, forgive us. When we have failed to know the difference, teach us. It is our desire to follow in the ways of Christ. So help us along the path. Assurance of Pardon One: Friends, believe the good news. All: In Jesus Christ we are forgiven. *Response (Hymn No. 215, stanza 1) wondrous love What wondrous love is this, O my soul, O my soul, what wondrous love is this, O my soul!

3 *Hymn No. 39 Great Is Thy Faithfulness faithfulness Response *Affirmation of Faith (From A Declaration of Faith) In Christ God gave us a glimpse of the new creation he has already begun and will surely finish. We do not know when the final day will come. In our time we see only broken and scattered signs that the renewal of all things is under way. We do not yet see the end of cruelty and suffering in the world, the church, or our own lives. The Reverend Katelyn Gordon Cooke The sympathy of the congregation is expressed to Ingrid Johnson and her family on the death of her mother, Anneliese Haemmerlein. But we see Jesus as Lord. As he stands at the center of our history, we are confident he will stand at its end. He will judge all people and nations. Evil will be condemned and rooted out of God s good creation. There will be no more tears or pain. All things will be made new. The fellowship of human beings and God will be perfected. Prayers of the People Stewardship of Life Childcare Subsidy for Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools Teachers Presentation of Tithes and Offering Offertory Anthem Be Thou My Vision arr. Vicente Chavarria Be thou my vision, O Lord of my heart; naught be all else to me, save that thou art. Thou my best thought by day or by night, waking or sleeping, thy presence my light. Be thou my wisdom and thou my true word; I ever with thee and thou with me, Lord. Thou my great father, I thy true son; thou in me dwelling, and I with thee one. Riches I heed not, nor man s empty praise; thou mine inheritance, now and always.thou, and thou only first in my heart, high king of heaven, my treasure thou art. High king of heaven, my victory won, may I reach heaven s joys, O bright heaven s sun! Heart of my own heart, whatever befall, still be my vision, O ruler of all. *Doxology (Hymn No. 606) old hundredth Praise God from whom all blessings flow; Praise him all creatures here below; Praise him above, ye heavenly host; Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. *Prayer of Dedication and The Lord s Prayer Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
