GATHERING

Prelude

Welcome and Announcements

Ringing of the Bell

(Please Stand)

Confession and Forgiveness

In the name of the Father, and of the +Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

Amen.

God of all mercy and consolation, come to the help of your people, turning us from our

sin to live for you alone. Give us the power of your Holy Spirit that we may confess our

sin, receive your forgiveness, and grow into the fullness of Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord.

Amen

Let us confess our sin in the presence of God and of one another.

(Silence is kept for reflection.)

Most merciful God,

We confess that we are captive to sin and cannot free ourselves. We have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed, by what we have done and by what we have left undone. We have not loved you with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. For the sake of your Son, Jesus Christ,

have mercy on us. Forgive us, renew us, and lead us, so that we may delight in

your will and walk in your ways, to the glory of your holy name. Amen.

God, who is rich in mercy, loved us even when we were dead in sin, and made us alive

together with Christ. By grace you have been saved. In the name of +Jesus Christ,

your sins are forgiven. Almighty God strengthen you with power through the Holy

Spirit, that Christ may live in your hearts through faith.

Amen.

L: The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the communion of the Holy

Spirit be with you all.

C: And also with you.

L: Let us pray:

Mighty God, you breathe life into our bones, and your Spirit brings truth to the

world. Send us this Spirit, transform us by your truth, and give us language to

proclaim your gospel, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, who lives and

reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

Psalm: Psalm 104: 24—35 Pg. 941

PS 104:24 How many are your works, O LORD! In wisdom you made them all; the earth is

full of your creatures.

PS 104:25 There is the sea, vast and spacious, teeming with creatures beyond

number—living things both large and small.

PS 104:27 These all look to you to give them their food at the proper time.

PS 104:28 When you give it to them, they gather it up; when you open your hand,

they are satisfied with good things.

PS 104:29 When you hide your face, they are terrified; when you take away their breath,

they die and return to the dust.

PS 104:30 When you send your Spirit, they are created, and you renew the face of

the earth.

PS 104:31 May the glory of the LORD endure forever; may the LORD rejoice in his works--

PS 104:35 But may sinners vanish from the earth and the wicked be no more.

Sermon

(Please Stand)

Hymn # 401 “Gracious Spirit, Heed Our Pleading” sts. 1 & 3

1. Gracious Spirit, heed our pleading, fashion us all anew.

It’s your leading that we’re needing, help us to follow you. (Refrain)

Refrain: Come, come, come, Holy Spirit, come.

Come, come, come, Holy Spirit, come.

3. Guide our thinking and our speaking done in your holy name.

Motivate all in their seeking, freeing from guilt and shame. (Refrain)

L: Together with the whole church, we confess our faith:

I believe in God, the Father almighty,

creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ,

God’s 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,

He is seated at the right hand of the Father,

And he will come 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

The Prayers

L: . . .Lord, in your mercy,

C: Hear our prayer.

Gathered into one by the Holy Spirit, let us pray as Jesus taught us:

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will

be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive

us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not

into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the

power, and the glory, forever and ever. Amen

Hymn # 400 “God of Tempest, God of Whirlwind” sts. 1 & 4

1. God of tempest, God of whirlwind, as on Pentecost descend!

Drive us out from sheltered comfort; past these walls your people send!

Sweep us into costly service, there with Christ to bear and cross,

there with Christ to bear the cross!

4. God of passion, God unsleeping, stir in us love’s restlessness!

Where the people cry in anguish, may we share your heart’s distress.

Rouse us from content with evil; claim us for your kingdom’s work,

claim us for your kingdom’s work!

L: Go in peace. Serve the Lord.

C: Thanks be to God.
