Call to Worship

One: When we pass through the waters,

All: God is there with us.

One: When we suffer and feel hopeless,

All: God is there with us.

One: When we are joyful and celebratory,

All: God is there with us.

One: Whether we feel triumphant or defeated,

All: God is there with us, always.

One: Come, let us worship together with Emmanuel,

All: God is with us.

(adapted from Rev. Mindi)

Opening Hymn VU # 345 – “Come, Children, Join to Sing”

Prayer of Approach and Confession

Almighty God: from the beginning of time to the end of eternity, you have chosen to use your power and majesty to love us, to redeem us, to shape us as your people. Spirit of God, resting upon us: may your power enflame us with your peace; may your peace touch us with your grace; may your grace fill us with your hope; may your hope lead us into your Kingdom.

Loving God, we confess we have given idols power over us, the idols of power and wealth, fame and security. We confess we have fallen into the ways of this world and have forgotten the call of Christ. We have lost sight of the reign of God here on earth, and instead have allowed the idols of the world to rule over us.

Forgive us. Call us into Your reign, to declare You the One who has power over us because Your power is love. Call us to love our neighbours as ourselves, and to work for justice, show mercy, and love one another in the name of Christ Jesus. Amen.
