Welcome and Announcements
† Call to Worship
Leader: We gather now to worship.
People: We come to worship our loving, nurturing God.
Leader: Good mothers know and love their children dearly.
People: Our good God knows us intimately and loves us unconditionally.
Unison: We come now to sing, pray and give praise to our Divine parent, the

† The Psalm Prayer, from Psalm 31 (In unison)
In you Lord, we take refuge. Deliver us in your righteousness, come to our rescue, be our rock of refuge and our fortress. Into your hands we commit our spirit. Our eternal fate is in your hands. Let your face shine on us, save us in your unfailing love. We pray this in the name of your Son, our Savior, in whom we have all hope.
†Hymn of Adoration # 257 The Risen Christ
Prayer of Confession (In unison)
Loving God, when shadows of fear or doubt come to our lives, we can be fright-ened, worried, and off balance. Forgive us when we do not remember the fortress strength of your ever-loving arms. We are sorry when our personal concern blinds us to the fear, hurt, loneliness, and injustice around us. Lord, we now offer our si-lent confessions...
(In unison) Fill us with the knowledge of Christ’s love and light, so that we may be a blessing to those who are burdened and downtrodden. Amen.
Assurance of Pardon New Creations in Christ
