Hymn 1:

         Stand Up and Bless the Lord           #491

1 Stand up and bless the Lord,
   Ye people of God's choice;
   Stand up and bless the Lord your       God With heart and soul and voice.

2 Though high above all praise,
   Above all blessing high,
   Who would not fear God's holy           name, And laud and magnify?

3 O for the living flame
   From God's own altar brought,
   To touch our lips, our minds inspire,
   And wing to heaven our thought!

4 God is our strength and song,
   Now is salvation ours;
   Then be God's love in Christ               proclaimed With all our ransomed       powers.

5 Stand up and bless the Lord;
   The Lord your God adore;
   Stand up and bless God's glorious     name; Henceforth forevermore.


Hymn 2:   Jesus, Thy Boundless Love to Me #366

1 Jesus, Thy boundless love to me
   No thought can reach, no tongue       declare; O knit my thankful heart to     Thee, And reign without a rival           there! Thine wholly, Thine alone,         I'd live, Myself to Thee, entirely           give.

2 O, grant that nothing in my soul
   May dwell, but Thy pure love               alone; O may Thy love possess         me whole, My joy, my treasure,           and my crown! All coldness from         my heart remove; May every act,       word, thought be love.

3 O love, how gracious is thy way!
   All fear before thy presence flies;
   Care, anguish, sorrow melt away,
   Where'er Thy healing beams arise.
   O Jesus, nothing may I see,
   Nothing desire or seek, but Thee.

Prayer of Confession:........................... (In Unison)

Eternal God, We disassociate from parts of your creation and falsely into clean and unclean. Yu call us to love one another and make more space at the table of belonging. The chaos of our world confuses us and leads us astray. Let us return to the clarity God provides throughout the world. Forgive our hard and selfish ways. Turn us to Christ and Christ's righteous path. Guide our steps in mission and ministry. Amen

Assurance of Pardon:

Hear the good news!
Christ died for us,
Christ rose for us,
Christ reigns in power for us,
Christ prays for us.
Anyone who is in Christ is a new creation,
The old life has gone, a new life has begun.

Passing the Peace:               

          Leader: The Peace of Christ be with all of you.

          People:  And Peace be with you also.

Open our eyes, Lord,

Open our ears, Lord,

Open our eyes, Lord,
we want to see Jesus.

God’s Word is like a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path. We pray that all hearts will be open to receive the Word of God. Help us, O LORD, to understand and to apply Your truth to our lives, for we lift our prayers in the name of Christ Jesus. Amen!

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; He descended into hell; the third day, He arose again from the dead; He ascended into Heaven and is seated 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 Ghost;    the Holy Catholic Church; the communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sin, the resurrection of the body;   and life everlasting. Amen.
