Hymn #21 How Great Thou Art
Time for Reconciliation (I John 1:5-10)
Leader: This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all.
All: If we claim to have fellowship with him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live by the truth.
Leader: But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.
All: If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us.
Leader: If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
All: If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word has no place in our lives.
Leader: We pause now for a moment of silent confession.
(Moment of Silence)
Leader: Sisters and brothers in Christ, hear and believe the good news of the Gospel: In Jesus Christ, all are forgiven!
All: Thanks be to God!

Choral Anthem: Praise and Adore – arr. Tom Fettke
Praise the Lord: O heavens, adore Him;
Praise Him, angels in the height.
Sun and moon, rejoice before Him;
Praise Him, shining stars of light.
Praise the Lord, for He has spoken;
Worlds His mighty voice obeyed.
Laws which never shall be broken
For their guidance He has made.
Praise the Lord, for He is gracious;
Never shall His promise fail.
God has made His saints victorious;
Sin and death shall not prevail.
Praise the God of our salvation;
Hosts on high, His power proclaim.
Heaven and earth and all creation,
Praise and magnify His name.
Worship, honor, glory, blessing,
Lord, we offer as our gift;
Young and old, your praise expressing,
Our glad song to you we lift.
All the saints in Heaven adore you;
We would join their glad acclaim;
As Your angels bow before You,
So on earth we Praise your name.

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 debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever, Amen.
