Welcome and Greeting


Song: Come to Me, All Pilgrims Thirsty Music: The Sacred Harp; Text: Delores Dufner


Come to me, all pilgrims thirsty;

drink the water I will give.

If you knew what gift I offer,

you would come to me and live.


Chorus:

Jesus, ever flowing fountain,

give us water from your well.

In the gracious gift you offer

there is joy no tongue can tell.


Come to me, all trav'lers weary;

come that I may give you rest.

Drink the cup of life I offer;

at this table be my guest."  


Come to me, believers burdened;

find refreshment in this place.

Come, receive the gift I offer,

turn to me and seek my face.


Come to me, repentant sinners;

leave behind your guilt and shame.

Come and know divine compassion,

turn to me, I call your name."

Confession and Forgiveness


Merciful God, We have sinned deeply and need your forgiveness. We have hurt you, those we love, our neighbors, and creation with things that we have done and things that we have left undone. We have lacked faith and have treated your promises as if they are nothing, putting our faith, instead, in other people and things. Create in us a new heart, forgive our sins, and return us to you with your deep well of life. We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.


Hymn of Praise by Kevin Stillson


Chorus:

Glory! Glory!

Glory to God on High!

Grant peace to us,

peace to us your people on earth.


Lord God, heavenly King, 

Almighty God and Father.

We worship you, we give you thanks,

we praise you for your glory!


Jesus Christ, only Son,

Lord God, Lamb of God.

You take away the sin of the world.

Have mercy and hear our prayer.


You are the holy one.

You alone are the Lord.

You alone are the most high.

Christ, Spirit, and the Father.

Apostles' Creed


I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth. I believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; he descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again; he ascended into heaven, he is seated at the right hand of the Father, and he will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.

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 trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever and ever. Amen.

May the Lord be gracious to you.

May the Lord look on you 

and give you peace.

Amen. Amen. 

Amen. Amen.

Song: We Go Out With the Spirit of God by Nate Houge


We go out with the spirit of God

Guiding us in the ways we will go

Showing us how 

to live what we know

leading us unto God

leading us unto God


Lord keep us safe 

and protect all our ways

In our trouble

In our stumbling

That we may see your face

that we may see your face
