ASSEMBLE IN GOD’S NAME / CONGREGADOS EM NOME DO SENHOR PRELUDE / PRELÚDIO (As the prelude begins, you are invited to prepare your heart for entering the holy of holies. Please put all electronic devices away as we worship God together.) RESPONSIVE CALL TO WORSHIP / CONVITE À ADORAÇÃO (Psalm 40:4-5) L: Happy are those who make the Lord their trust, who do not turn to the proud, to those who go astray after false gods. P: You have multiplied, O Lord my God, your wondrous deeds and your thoughts toward us; none can compare with you. All: Were I to proclaim and tell of them, they would be more than can be counted. *HYMN / HINO # 85 “What Wondrous Love Is This” *UNISON PRAYER OF PRAISE / ORAÇÃO DE LOUVOR EM UNÍSSONO How great is your love, God of life. You love us each as you love the whole world, so that the world is not lost and we are not lost in it. Your love stirs our imaginations with visions that go to the depths of us and with visions that draw us beyond ourselves. Your love extends not only further than we imagine, but further than we can imagine. Grant that our praise succeeds where imagination fails and that our adoration heralds your triumph for all in Jesus Christ. Amen. CALL TO CONFESSION / CHAMADA PARA CONFISSÃO DE FÉ UNISON PRAYER OF CONFESSION / ORAÇÃO DE CONFISSÃO EM UNÍSSONO Look at us, O God, from leaders to the least among us! We are a compromised people. We have forsaken your ways and have taken up the ways of the society about us, hallowing bigness and growth and success and their companions in deception. We have misplaced our memory of the servanthood for which you created your church. We have forgotten our role in the economy of your love. We have faulted the messengers you have sent to warn us of our waywardness, and ignored their messages. When we have paid attention, it is to scorn your prophets and to despise their words. Change us, merciful God, lest when your remedy comes, we will neither recognize nor receive it, and there will be no redemption for us. Amen. KYRIE ELEISON (# 572) Lord, have mercy upon us. Christ, have mercy upon us. Lord, have mercy upon us. DECLARATION OF FORGIVENESS / DECLARAÇÃO DO PERDÃO (Isa. 43:18-19a) L: Do not remember the former things, or consider the things of old. P: I am about to do a new thing; All: now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?

Lead us into all the world rejoicing that we are being saved with all the peoples and creatures of the world. Amen. HYMN OF PREPARATION/HINO DE PREPARAÇÃO # 280 “Amazing Grace” SCRIPTURE / LEITURAS BÍBLICAS Gospel Lesson / Lição do Evangelho Lição I: John 3:14-21

Donna Fischer

Responsive Psalm of the Day / Salmo do Dia: Psalm 107:1-3, 17-22 Donna Fischer Give thanks to the Lord, who is good; whose love endures forever. Let the redeemed of the Lord tell their story— those redeemed from the hand of the foe, those gathered from the lands, from east and west, from north and south. Some became fools through their rebellious ways and suffered affliction because of their iniquities. They loathed all food and drew near the gates of death. Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, who saved them from their distress. The Lord sent out his word and healed them; the Lord rescued them from the grave. Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love and wonderful deeds for humankind. Let them sacrifice thank offerings and tell of the Lord’s works with songs of joy. Lesson I / Lição I: Ephesians 2:1-10
