God’s Broken Heroes
Call to Worship
The Lord made heaven and earth; the sea, and everything in them.
He keeps every promise forever.
He gives justice to the oppressed and food to the hungry.
The Lord frees the prisoners.
The Lord opens the eyes of the blind.
The Lord lifts up those who are weighed down.
The Lord loves the godly.
The Lord protects the foreigners among us.
He cares for the orphans and widows, but he frustrates the plans of the wicked.
Praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord, my soul.
I will praise the Lord all my life;
I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.
-Psalm 146:6-9, 1-2
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Assurance of Pardon
Who is a God like you–
who pardons sin and forgives the offenses of your people?
You do not stay angry forever, but delight to show your mercy.
Once again you have compassion on us.
You tread our sins underfoot and hurl our transgressions into the depths of the sea.
-The Worship Sourcebook; from Micah 7:18-20
May the God who shakes heaven and earth;
Whom death could not contain;
Who lives to guide and heal us;
Bless you with power to go forth and proclaim the gospel.
Peace be with you all.
