Call to Worship –                                                                    Cindy Pinson

Praise the Lord for what He has done. Those who come to the Lord will praise Him. All nations will remember the Lord. From every part of the world they will turn to Him. The Lord is King and He rules the nations. Future generations will speak of the Lord to the coming generations. People not yet born will be told, “The Lord saved His people.”      

*Hymn                     "I Come With Joy"                                     Dale Capehart

Unison Prayer of Confession                                               Cindy Pinson 

Heavenly Father, we have missed many opportunities to tell others of Your saving love by both word and deed. Often we have made the gospel unattractive by failing to live lives of joy and compassion. We acknowledge our responsibility for sharing the Good News about Jesus and ask that, empowered by Your Spirit, we may be used by You to bring others into the fellowship of those who put their trust in You. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.


Declaration of Forgiveness                                                  Cindy Pinson 

Friends, hear the good news! Jesus, our Good Shepherd, laid down His life for us, His sheep. Jesus laid down His life for us that we might live. Friends, believe the good news! In Jesus Christ, we are forgiven.           

 *Gloria Patri
