LIGHTING OF THE CHRIST CANDLE

     (please light your own candle if it is safe to do so, otherwise you can turn on a lamp or light)

 

CALL TO WORSHIP: (Revelation 21:3-6)

And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “See, the home of God is among mortals. He will dwell with them as their God; they will be his peoples, and God himself will be with them; he will wipe every tear from their eyes. Death will be no more; mourning and crying and pain will be no more, for the first things have passed away.”  And the one who was seated on the throne said, “See, I am making all things new.” Also, he said, “Write this, for these words are trustworthy and true.” 6Then he said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give water as a gift from the spring of the water of life.

 

*OPENING HYMN: #329- “God Is Our Refuge and Our Strength”

PRAYER OF RECONCILIATION: Loving God, you are always more ready to listen than we are to pray. Bless us in our efforts to join you in the work of reconciliation and healing. May those who are hurting experience your deep and abiding grace, and may we learn to treat each other with the love through which we were created. It is in your Son’s name we pray. Amen.  Hear now, as we open up our broken hearts to You in our own personal confession –   SILENT CONFESSION - Amen

 

 

ASSURANCE OF PARDON: It will be said on that day, this is our God; we have waited for him, so that he might save us. This is the Lord for whom we have waited; let us be glad and rejoice in his salvation.

PASSING THE PEACE: “May the Peace of Christ be with you --- And also with you!”

 

SHARING OUR JOYS AND CONCERNS: (Since we are not able to meet in person to ask for prayers - If you would like to add a request/joy to the worship bulletin, please email them to TerraceView4700@gmail.com)

 

Please take a moment to pray for those you know who are in need of prayers.

 

PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE: God, we come to you as people who look to you for our strength, healing, and for wisdom. Whether we find ourselves in this moment filled with gratitude and love or anxiety and distrust, out of faithfulness, we’re here to thank you, to worship the one who helps us in our unbelief, grateful for your many blessings, seen and unseen. Help us to be a prophetic voice of hope for a people too often lonely and tired. Called to loving relationship with our brothers, sisters, and friends in Christ, we ask that you send your Spirit, which brings unity and welcome, never division. Compassionate God, enliven our senses such that we might recognize your presence in every person we encounter. Open our ears so that we may hear you in the myriad of voices just outside this chapel.  Gracious God, we pray that you would help us as we strive to be a church busy about your Kingdom. For all of these things, we pray in the name of your son Jesus who taught us to pray saying…

 

THE 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 our sins as we forgive those who sin 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. Amen

 

 

PRAYER FOR ILLUMINATION: Almighty God, in you are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. Open our eyes that we may see the wonders of your Word; and give us grace that we may clearly understand and freely choose the way of your wisdom; through Christ our Lord. Amen.

 

PSALM LESSON: Psalm 104:1-4   

O give thanks to the Lord, call on his name, make known his deeds among the peoples. Sing to him, sing praises to him; tell of all his wonderful works. Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice. Seek the Lord and his strength; seek his presence continually.

 

OLD TESTAMENT LESSON: Jeremiah 17:5-8

Thus says the Lord: Cursed are those who trust in mere mortals and make mere flesh their strength, whose hearts turn away from the Lord. They shall be like a shrub in the desert, and shall not see when relief comes. They shall live in the parched places of the wilderness, in an uninhabited salt land. Blessed are those who trust in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord. They shall be like a tree planted by water, sending out its roots by the stream. It shall not fear when heat comes, and its leaves shall stay green; in the year of drought it is not anxious.

 

*HYMN: #848 - “Trust in God”
