Reading: Call to Worship
L: The LORD is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in love. The LORD is good to all; He has compassion on all He has made. All your works praise You, LORD; Your faithful people praise You. They tell of the glory of Your kingdom and speak of Your might, so that all people may know of Your mighty acts and the glorious splendor of Your kingdom.
C: The LORD is trustworthy in all He promises and faithful in all He does. The LORD upholds all who fall and lifts up all who are bowed down.
Song: “Great Is Thy Faithfulness” by Thomas Obediah Chisholm and William Marion Runyan
L: Lord, we know you meet us with grace and compassion. You have shown mercy to us in spite of our sin.
C: We confess we take that mercy for granted.
L: We know that grace is never cheap; that it comes at the high cost of your son’s life. May we never forget the price you paid to redeem us.
C: Forgive us for being forgetful, Lord.
L: May the knowledge of your mercy sink deep into our hearts.
C: May seeing Jesus motivate us to holiness, to obedience, to love of God and neighbor.
L: May your Spirit dwell with power in our hearts, so that we may be changed and through us, may your kingdom advance.
C: Come Holy Spirit, Fill our hearts now and always. Amen.

— moment of silence —
L: But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you. Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.
(John 14:26-27, ESV)

Song: “When I Survey” by Fred C. Mallory and Lowell Mason
C: Almighty God, our heavenly Father, the privilege is ours to be called to share in the loving, healing, and reconciling mission of your Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord, in this age and wherever we are. Since without you we can do no good thing, may your Spirit make us wise; may your Spirit guide us; may your Spirit renew us; may your Spirit strengthen us so that we will be strong in faith; discerning in proclamation; courageous in witness; persistent in good deeds. This we ask through the same Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
– François de Salignac de la Mothe-Fenelon (1651-1715)

Hear this benediction as we go:
L: May the resurrection of Jesus Christ bring you all joy and peace in believing so that you may abound in hope and boldly live out the gospel. Go in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Peace be with you.
C: And also with you.
