Call to Worship
One: By your ordinances, O God, there is great reward.
All: But who can understand one’s own errors? Clear me from hidden faults.
One: Also keep your servant from the insolent; let them not have dominion over me!
All: Then I shall be blameless and innocent.
One: Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
All: be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.
The Apostles’ Creed, Ecumenical Version
All: I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended to the dead.
On the third day he rose again;
he ascended into heaven,
is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and will come again to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.
Scripture Reading from Genesis 1:1-5, CEB
“1When God began to create the heavens and the earth—2the earth was without shape or form, it was dark over the deep sea, and God’s wind swept over the waters—3God said, “Let there be light.” And so light appeared. 4God saw how good the light was. God separated the light from the darkness. 5God named the light Day and the darkness Night.
There was evening and there was morning: the first day.”
Scripture Reading from Deuteronomy 6:4-7, CEB
“4Israel, listen! Our God is the LORD! Only the LORD!
5Love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your being, and all your strength. 6These words that I am commanding you today must always be on your minds. 7Recite them to your children. Talk about them when you are sitting around your house and when you are out and about, when you are lying down and when you are getting up.”
Response to Scripture
One: This is the word of God for the people of God.
