Order of Worship

Highland Presbyterian Worship

Weekend of August 23, 2020

WELCOME

CALL TO WORSHIP
Come in from the night.
It is a new day, and this is where love lives.
Take off your coat, let the weight fall off your shoulders;
For here, you are known. Here, you are loved.
Come in from the rain.
We can do anything together. We can survive together.
When the world unravels from under your feet - come in.
Come in.
Come in.
God is here. You are home. You will never be alone.
Let us worship the God who weaves us together. Amen.

OPENING PRAYER & LORD'S PRAYER

OPENING SONG: "Holy Spirit (Show me Your Glory)"
Kelsey & Kristin McCarthy

CALL TO CONFESSION PRAYER OF CONFESSION
Holy  God,  We  have  been  angry  because  we  see  suffering  and  we  don't  understand. We have  been skeptical because we know heartbreak that doesn't seem fair. We have withheld love because sacrifice only feels real when it's our own. Forgive us for forgetting that you created the heavens and the earth. Forgive us for withholding our pain from you. Forgive us for thinking we know everything. When the world falls apart around us - When love unravels and life slowly fails - draw us in. Show us grace; for you gave the wind its weight and you gave our bodies life. Forgive us for forgetting that. Amen.

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 Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; He descended into hell. The third day he rose from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sitteth at 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 Spirit,  the holy  catholic  church,  the  communion  of  saints,  the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.

CLOSING SONG: "Refine Me"
