Greeting and Welcome 
Prelude - Change My Heart O God
 
Centering Words (Pastor)
As we enter this sacred space, let the Spirit of God renew our hearts and center our thoughts. Let the Holy Spirit embrace us with his steadfast love. Allow the presence of God to transform our hearts and renew our souls. Let us sing praises and give glory to God!
 
Call to Worship (Responsive)
Come, let us sing to the Lord.
We enter this place with thanksgiving and praise.
Come, let us rejoice in his presence.
We come into his house, where his presence dwells.
Come, let us give thanks for his love.
We proclaim God’s steadfast love that endures forever.
 
Opening Prayer (Unison)
Loving God, we come with anticipation and joy to enjoy your presence. Renew us with your Holy Spirit as we worship. Remind us that your steadfast love follows us everywhere we go. Increase our faith that we don’t become burdened by the challenges of life. Thank you for claiming us as your own! Amen.

God of grace and glory, remember us! When we turn from you, sustain us with your presence.

Restore us! Remind us of your steadfast love! Amen!
 
Words of Assurance (Responsive)
The love of God is ours without price or condition!
In the name of Jesus Christ, we are forgiven!
Thanks be to God!
