Call to Worship
We worship in the season of Lent,
a time to examine our hearts and our lives
and journey with Christ through the suffering of the world.
Let us listen for the commandments of God
and align our lives with God’s vision for peace.
God has marked us as beloved dust
and called us together to worship.
Prayer of Praise
Eternal God, your kingdom has broken into our troubled world through the life, death and resurrection of your Son. Help us to hear your word and obey it, that we may become instruments of your saving love; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen
Call to Confession
Prayer of Confession
O Christ who chased the money changers from the temple,
chase the greed from our lives and our hearts.
As you overturned the tables, O Lord,
overturn the systems in our world
that contribute to cycles of poverty and oppression.
Forgive us, O God, of the ways we contribute to the world’s brokenness.
Forgive us, O God, and wash us in your mercy.
Forgive us, O God, and free us to try again.
Assurance of Grace
Hear the good news; God has claimed us as Gods own before we were even born. We are washed in the waters of Gods promises and in Jesus Christ, we are forgiven.
Thanks be to God!
