*Invocation

Sovereign God, come to us now in silent, holy power. Quiet our distracted minds, our bruised hearts, our longing bodies.  Then speak the power of Jesus’ name in such a way that we might hear it; in such a way that we might bear it into the world – as a people who seek not to preserve what we know, but to make palpable who you are – for we move and pray by your breath within us.  Amen.

 

*Hymn of Praise     Holy, Holy, Holy  UMH # 64

 

Call to Confession

God established the world from of old.  God delivered us in freedom and truth.  God’s reign shall never end.  God’s love is everlasting.  Jesus loves us and frees us from our sins; therefore, let us confess our sins before God and one another.

 

Our Prayer of Common Confession

Holy One, we dare to call you Lord,

            but yield to you only fragments of our lives.

You had nowhere to lay your head;

            we surround ourselves with comfort.

We expect to serve you with what remains after we have indulged

our desires.   

Forgive us, we pray.

Free us for joyful obedience through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

 

All offer prayers of confession in silence.

 

Declaration of Forgiveness

Hear the good news:

Christ died for us while we were yet sinners;

that proves God’s love toward us.

In the name of Jesus Christ, you are forgiven!

In the name of Jesus Christ, you are forgiven!

Glory be to God.  Now and Forever.  Amen.

Sermon  King of Kings:  Lord of Lords

 

Pastor Gay Hall

 

*Affirmation of Faith    The Apostles’ Creed

 

I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth;

And in Jesus Christ his only Son, our Lord;
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, dead, and buried;
the third day he rose from the dead;
he ascended into heaven,
and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
from thence he shall come to judge the quick 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.

 

*The Gloria Patri

  Glory be to the Father

  and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost;

  as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,

  world without end.  Amen.
