Prelude
Call to Worship [responsive]
Leader: When God appeared on earth in the person of Jesus,
most of the world did not recognize him
and therefore did not worship him.
Today we ask for the faith that will open our eyes
to see Jesus for who he is,
that we might worship him in truth.
People of God, behold and see your God!
People: We open our eyes to see his glory.
We open our ears to hear his wisdom.
We open our mouths to sing his praise.
We open our hearts to offer him our love.
He is Lord!
Orgelstück, Knecht
*Hymn No. 630 “Fairest Lord Jesus”
Call to Confession
Prayer of Confession [in unison]
Almighty God, we confess how hard it is to be your people. You have called us to be the
church, to continue the mission of Jesus Christ in our lonely and confused world. Yet we
admit we are more apathetic than active, isolated than involved, callous than compassionate,
legalistic than loving. Gracious Lord, have mercy upon us and forgive our sins. Awaken our
hearts to the promised gift of your indwelling Spirit. This we pray in Jesus’s powerful name.
Amen.

Remember the Church in your will.
2015 will bring a few changes as to how we do The Weekly Prayer People. Each week we will
include the names of 4-6 church members in the bulletin and in the monthly Tidings. We ask that
you include these people in your prayers. If you would like to call or send a note you can get their
address and phone number from the church directory. By naming several people each week
everyone in the congregation will be mentioned during the year. As new members join the church
their names will be added that year.
