Service for the Lord’s Day *Assurance of Forgiveness 4th Sunday in Ordinary Time GATHERING *Passing of the Peace (Passing the peace is more than a greeting. It is a ritual acting out of Jesus' call to love and forgive others, as we have been loved. We offer God's peace to one another in the ancient words of the church: "The peace of Christ be with you. And also with you.”) Chimes Welcome (Please sign the friendship pad) Prelude Fantasie in C Major (1st movement) Cesar Franck PROCLAMATION Call to Worship Give thanks to God with all your heart. We come full of awe at God’s marvelous works. Give thanks to God with all your mind. We come to learn God’s wisdom and righteousness. Give thanks to God with all your strength. We come to live in God’s mercy and grace. Let us worship God with all that we are. *Hymn 489 Open Now Thy Gates of Beauty Message for Children (Silence for reflection and self-examination) Lord, Have Mercy Upon Us This is Where Children Belong James Ritchie UNSER HERRSCHER *Facing Our Sin and Trusting God's Grace Mighty God, surely awe for you is the beginning of wisdom. But we want to trust in our own knowledge. The Scriptures tell us that you spoke to your people through Moses and the prophets. But we doubt that you speak today. We hear the stories of Jesus casting out demons. But we doubt that you hear our prayers for healing. Lord Jesus, forgive our doubts, and teach us with authority, that we might spread your fame!
