Call to Celebration                                                           Elder, John Kazmirski 

 L:     How many are your works, O Lord!  In wisdom you made them all; the                         earth is full of your creatures.                                                                                                               P:     These all look to you to give them their food at the proper time.

 L:     When you give it to them, they gather it up;

 P      When you open your hand, they are satisfied with good things.                           L:   When you hide your face, they are terrified; when you take away their breath, they die and return to the dust.                                                                                                      P : When you send your Spirit, they are created, and you renew the face of the earth.                                                                                                                                                                              ALL:   May the glory of the Lord endure forever; may the Lord rejoice in His works.

Hymn of Praise     "Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing"                          #2

Prayer of Confession of Sins and Mistakes

(Time for Personal Prayer and Reflection)

[Unison] Almighty GOD You poured out Your Holy Spirit at Pentecost and by Your power the Church formed and grew.  We have lost some of the zeal of the early church and have become complacent towards the spiritual and physical needs of the world.  We are lukewarm in sharing the Gospel with the nations and our neighbors.  Forgive us and help us to follow the example of the early believers by living out our faith boldly.  May the experience of Pentecost spur us to excitedly serve You and be led by Your powerful Spirit in every aspect of our lives.  Help us to trust Your Spirit to guide us and shape us as we do Your work in the world.    In Jesus' name Amen.
