DAYSPRING NOTES HYMN SING *CALL TO CELEBRATION Pastor: The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with you. People: And also with you. Pastor: The risen Christ is with us. People: Praise the Lord! *OPENING PRAYER (in unison) Almighty God, to you all hearts are open, all desires known, and from you no secrets are hidden.
Cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of your Holy Spirit, that we may perfectly love you and worthily magnify your name through Christ our Lord. Amen. *HYMN OF PRAISE “O For A Thousand Tongues to Sing”
A TIME FOR OUR CHILDREN (As the children age 2 through Fifth grade leave for Sunday School, please join in singing Hymn #143) “On Eagle’s Wings” And God will raise you up on eagle’s wings, bear you on the breath of dawn, make you to shine like the sun and hold you in the palm of God’s hand. THE INVITATION CONFESSION AND PARDON (in unison) Merciful God, we confess that we have not loved you with our whole heart. We have failed to be an obedient church. We have not done your will, we have broken your law, we have rebelled against your love, we have not loved our neighbors, and we have not heard the cry of the needy. Forgive us, we pray. Free us for joyful obedience, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. THE WORDS OF ASSURANCE Liturgist: Hear the good news. Christ died for us while we were yet sinners; that proves God’s love toward us. In the name of Jesus Christ, you are forgiven! People: In the name of Jesus Christ, you are forgiven! All: Thanks be to God. Amen.
