Call to Worship
We believe that God is in the midst of
our city. We believe that
God’s help always comes. It is because of our beliefs that we
gather to worship the God who made heaven and earth.
Lord, today we offer our material
possessions, and ourselves, to
you. All things were created through you and for you. We are in
awe of your power and glory. So, then, may we use all that has
been created, for your glory and the glory of your kingdom. In
your name, Amen.
Scripture Reading: Colossians 1:9-20
Sermon: “Give thanks to the King of kings”
Leader: We acknowledge that we are broken people.
People: We admit that we have fallen short more than once.
Leader: Like a shepherd who has destroyed his flock, we have
broken promises to God and to each other.
People: We ask for forgiveness.
(Pause for silence.)
All: May we all be made strong by the glorious power of
God who forgives all. ~ Rachel Ringenberg Miller, Portland, Oregon
