God is Revealed as We Gather

Choral Call to Worship        “Come On Let’s Go” Paul Thorn

*Responsive Call to Worship

God of the prophets, call to us today
Call us into Your ways of love, justice and righteousness.
God of the poets, remind us again how much You love us
Sing to us Your ways of love, justice and righteousness.
God of Jesus’ disciples, teach us how to follow You
Teach us Your ways of love, justice and righteousness.
God of all creation, help us to know Your ways
We gather to hear Your call, to sing Your praise, to teach each other, to pray and worship as Your people.

*Opening Hymn     “All Are Welcome”   (insert)

Unison Prayer of Confession
Most holy and merciful God: we have condemned racial injustice, yet we cling to the privileges derived from social inequities.  All too often we are blind to our complicity in maintaining systems of oppression.  Give us the courage to name our sin, give us the strength to claim responsibility for our actions.  Give us the grace to pay the price for changing our behavior.  Through Jesus Christ we pray. Amen.

Assurance of Pardon
