07.23.17 Gathered Worship

PRC Media Prepare for Gathered Worship

Sermon Text: Ephesians 4:1-3

Call to Worship: 1 Peter 2:9-10

Old Testament Reading: Psalm 133

Prayer of Confession:
God of grace, we grieve that the Church, which shares one Spirit,
one faith, one hope, and one calling, has become a broken communion in a broken world.
The one Body spans all time, place, race, and language,
but in our fear we have fled from and fought one another,
and in our pride we have mistaken our part for the whole.
Yet we marvel that You gather the pieces to do your work,
that You bless us with joy, with growth, and with signs of unity.
Forgive our sins and help us to commit ourselves to seeking and showing the unity of the Body of Christ.
In His name, Amen.

We’ll respond to the riches of God’s grace in Christ by singing these songs:
