CALL TO WORSHIP
One: I waited patiently for the Lord, who inclined to me and heard my cry.
All: The Lord drew me up from the desolate pit, out of the miry bog, set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure.
One: The Lord put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God.
All: Many will see and be in awe, and put their trust in the Lord.
One: I have told the glad news of deliverance in the great congregation;
All: lo, I have not restrained my lips, as you know, O Lord.
One: O Lord, do not withhold your mercy from me,
All: let your steadfast love and faithfulness ever preserve me!
AFFIRMATION OF FAITH
Will you please join me in affirming our faith with An Affirmation from I Corinthians 15: 1-16 And Colossians 1:15-20?
This is the good news which we have received, in which we stand, and by which we are saved:
Christ died for our sins, was buried, was raised on the third day, and appeared first to the women, then to Peter and the Twelve, and then to many faithful witnesses.
We believe Jesus is the Christ, the Anointed One of God, the firstborn of all creation, the firstborn from the dead, in whom all things hold together, in whom the fullness of God was pleased to dwell by the power of the Spirit.
Christ is the head of the body, the church, and by the blood of the cross reconciles all things to God. Amen.
Psalm 77:1-2, 11-20
I cry out loud to God—out loud to God so that he can hear me! During the day when I’m in trouble I look for my Lord.At night my hands are still outstretched and don’t grow numb;my whole being refuses to be comforted.
But I will remember the LORD’s deeds;yes, I will remember your wondrous acts from times long past. I will meditate on all your works;I will ponder your deeds. God, your way is holiness!Who is as great a god as you, God? You are the God who works wonders;you have demonstrated your strength among all peoples. With your mighty arm you redeemed your people;redeemed the children of Jacob and Joseph. Selah The waters saw you, God—the waters saw you and reeled!Even the deep depths shook! The clouds poured water,the skies cracked thunder;your arrows were flying all around! The crash of your thunder was in the swirling storm;lightning lit up the whole world;the earth shook and quaked. Your way went straight through the sea;your pathways went right through the mighty waters.But your footprints left no trace! You led your people like sheep under the care of Moses and Aaron.
RESPONSE TO SCRIPTURE
One: This is the word of God for the people of God.
All: Thanks be to God.
