CALL TO WORSHIP Bless the Lord, O my Soul!
and all that is within me, bless God’s holy name!
Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all God’s benefits. The Lord forgives all our iniquity and heals all our diseases.
The Lord redeems our lives from the pit, and crowns us with steadfast love and mercy. God satisfies us with good as long as we live so that our youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
OPENING HYMN: “Guide me, O Thou Great Jehovah” #127 UMH
OPENING PRAYER We confess to you, all-knowing God, what we are. we are not the people we like others to think we are. we are afraid to admit, even to ourselves, what lies in the depths of our souls. But we cannot hide our true selves from you. You know us as we are, and yet you love us. Help us not to shrink from self-knowledge. Teach us to respect ourselves for your sake. Give us the courage to put our trust in your guiding power. Raise us out from the paralysis of guilt into the freedom and energy of forgiven people. And for those who, through long habit, find forgiveness hard to accept, we ask you to break their bondage and set them free; Through Jesus Christ, our Redeemer. Amen. CHILDREN’S MESSAGE

THE PEACE TITHES & OFFERINGS tithes.hamburgumc.org/Give DOXOLOGY “Praise God from Whom all Blessings Flow” #95 UMH
The Lord be with you. And also with you. Lift up your hearts. We lift them up to the Lord. Let us give thanks to the Lord our God. It is right to give our thanks and praise.
...And so, with your people on earth and all the company of heaven
we praise your name and join their unending hymn:
Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might,
Heaven and earth are full of your glory. Hosanna in the highest.
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest.
...And so, in remembrance of these your mighty acts in Jesus Christ,
we offer ourselves in praise and thanksgiving
as a holy and living sacrifice, in union with Christ's offering for us,
as we proclaim the mystery of faith.
Christ has died; Christ is risen; Christ will come again.
...Through your Son Jesus Christ, with the Holy Spirit in your holy Church,
all honor and glory is yours, almighty Father (God ), now and forever. Amen.
