Opening Hymn- “Come, Christians, Join to Sing!” 

Prayer of Confession 

Lord, so often we forget who we are and Whose we are. We are your beloved children, equipped with your living Spirit, to serve others and to help your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. But so often we forget the incredible gifts you have given us and how powerful your gifts make us. We pass up opportunity after opportunity to make a difference in this world, thinking that the problems are too big and that we are too small. We fail to say the encouraging word, and we walk by the downtrodden stranger. We are children of the living, loving, powerful God! Forgive us for not acting like it. Forgive us for failing to encourage one another. Set us on a right course this day, a course of uplifting others. Amen.

Benediction Response “May Our Lives Speak of Your Love” – Ian Coates

May our lives speak of your love

May our feet walk in your grace

May we share your friendship with all your children

Send us out into the world, free to be, to live, and to love 

And may all we do and say for you, bring freedom for all
