*Call to Worship (Adapted from Psalm 42)

As a deer longs for flowing streams, so our souls long for you, O God. Our souls thirst for God, for the living God. When shall we come and behold the face of God? Deep calls to deep at the thunder of the Lord’s cataracts; all his waves and his billows have gone over us. By day the Lord commands his steadfast love, and at night his song is with us, a prayer to the God of our lives. Hope in God; for we shall again praise him, our help and our God.

*Opening Prayer

*Hymn 626 “As the Deer”

*Call to Confession (Adapted from Psalm 145)

The Lord is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. The Lord is good to all, and his compassion is over all that he has made. Let us confess our sins to God.

*Silent Prayer

*Prayer of Confession

You know us, Father, as we are—not as we pretend to be. And yet you still love us and call us beloved sons and daughters. We are astounded by your goodness and grace. Forgive us, Lord, our many sins and empower us to reflect great faith, energy, and devotion this day and always. On this Father’s day, we give thanks for all the fathers who have been a blessing in our lives. Please help us to be parents and children who demonstrate the love of Christ in all that we say and do. For we pray all this in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen.

*Hymn 317 “In Christ There Is No East or West”

*Affirmation of Faith The Apostles’ Creed

I BELIEVE in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; he descended into hell; the third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy catholic church; the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting. Amen.

For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.
