Call to Worship
As a hart longs for flowing streams, so longs my soul for you, O God.
My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.
Send me your light and your faithful care,
let them lead me; let them bring me to your holy mountain,
to the place where you dwell
Then I will go to the altar of God. I will go to God, my joy and my delight.
I will praise you, O God, my God.  (Psalms 42, 43)

Prayer of Invocation

*Hymn: #64 “Holy, Holy, Holy!”


Loving God, whose Word is a lamp to our feet and a light for our path, we recognize and confess that we have failed to respond fully to your grace. When you call us, we pretend not to hear. When our sisters and brothers need us, we turn away. And when our hearts ache, when we are lonely, when we are broken, we do not reach out to you, our comforter and redeemer. O God, forgive us; forgive all our sin and strengthen us anew for life as you intended it. Amen
