Welcome and Announcements

Call to Worship

The prophet asks: Can our soul-weary bones live again?

        O God, you know!

We ask: Can we dance again after facing loss and grief?

        O God, you know!

The gift is sure and unmistakable:

        God’s breath poured out as new life for weary souls!

Let us celebrate the gift of God’s new life,

        And worship God with grateful praise!

10,000 Reasons (Bless The Lord) 

        Bless the Lord O my soul

        O my soul

        Worship His holy name

        Sing like never before

        O my soul

        I'll worship Your holy name

    The sun comes up it's a new day dawning

    It's time to sing Your song again

    Whatever may pass and whatever lies before me

    Let me be singing when the evening comes (chorus)

    You're rich in love and You're slow to anger

    Your name is great and Your heart is kind

    For all Your goodness I will keep on singing

    Ten thousand reasons for my heart to find (chorus)

    And on that day when my strength is failing

    The end draws near and my time has come

    Still my soul will sing Your praise unending

    Ten thousand years and then forevermore (chorus)

Prayer of Confession and Assurance of Pardon

God of love and mystery, make us whole. Heal the wounds we carry in us, and heal the wounds we have created in others. Make us strong in the broken places, that we will know of what we speak when we offer mercy and hope. Forgive us, and enable us to forgive in that same way. God of love and mystery, make us whole, through your Son Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen.

Prayers of Intercession

Lord’s Prayer (Contemporary Version)

    Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come, your will      be done, on earth as in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us

    our sins as we forgive those who sin against us. Save us from the time of

    trial and deliver us from evil. For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are

    yours now and forever. Amen.

Open Up Our Eyes

    Greater is the One who's in us

    Greater is the One who calls our name

    He will never fail

    Stronger is the One within us

    Stronger is the One who fights for us

    He will never fail

    You will never fail

        For Your love endures forever

        Oh Your love endures forever

        Open up our eyes surround us with Your light

        Your love endures forever

    Mighty is the One who's for us

    Mighty is the One who's strong to save

    He will make a way You will make a way

    Our God is fighting for us always

    Our God is fighting for us all

    Our God is fighting for us always

    We are not alone we are not alone (yeah)
