call to worship

Take turns reading the Call to Worship, joining your voices for the bold.


Come and worship the LORD!


Jesus has opened a new and living way to God for us through the curtain of his flesh.


Let us come with confidence!


Jesus is our great high priest offering his body as the once for all sacrifice for our sins.


Let us draw near with hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience.


Jesus is the beginning and the end of our faith and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. 


Come let us worship the LORD!



song - my heart is filled

confession of sin

Have one person read the Confession and then take a few moments to silently confess your sins to God.


Almighty Father, we enter your presence confessing the things we try to conceal from you and the things we try to conceal from others. We confess the heartbreak, worry, and sorrow we have caused that make it difficult for others to forgive us, the times we have made it easy for others to do wrong, the harm we have done that makes it hard for us to forgive ourselves. Lord have mercy and forgive us through Christ. Amen.


From To Forgive Us Our Sins: Litanies, Liturgies, and Individual Confessions (Gaven M. Mize)





the good news of forgiveness

This is the power of the cross: Christ became sin for us. He took the blame and bore God's wrath so that we might stand blameless before God. 

Friends, believe the good news of the gospel!

In Jesus Christ, we are forgiven!
