  • CALL TO WORSHIP   

We give praise to God this morning for our God is awesome and amazing.

We remind one another about the works and faithfulness of God. 

God’s works and blessings have brought us here.  God’s faithfulness has helped us weather life’s storms.

May God teach us to continue to trust in the presence of the Lord, that God is with us always.

In a world of goodness and struggle, we still are grateful for God’s blessings.

We stand this morning for the call to worship with a spirit of gratitude!

PRAYER OF CONFESSION 

Patient Lord, you certainly know that in our lives we face difficulties.  We often focus on them as though they were the only things that ever happened to us, forgetting the many blessings that you have given to us and the opportunities you give to serve you.

Forgive us when we forget those things. Help us to realize the many blessings in our lives and to thank you by serving others in your name. We offer this prayer of confession admitting our faults and failures… 

(Silent prayers of confession.)
