GREETING
The last page of the Bible carries this invitation: ‘“Come!” say the Spirit and the bride. “Come!” let each hearer reply. Come forward, you who are thirsty; accept the water of life,
a free gift to all who desire it.” (Revelation 22:17 NEB)

CALL TO CONFESSION
PRAYER OF CONFESSION-Unison
Most merciful God, We confess that we have sinned against You in thought, word and deed, by what we have done, and by what we have left undone. We have not loved You with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. We are truly sorry and we humbly repent. For the sake of Your Son Jesus Christ, have mercy on us and forgive us; that we might delight in Your will, walk in Your ways, to the glory of Your Name. Amen.

PRAYERS AND OFFERINGS

OFFERTORY PRAYER– Unison
God of wind and flame: Set us on fire this morning as celebrate the explosion of Your Holy Spirit coming into the world on the Day of Pentecost! Remind us that the gift You gave that day was not just the gift to speak in different tongues, but also the gift of hearing and comprehension. May Your Holy Spirit keep us attuned to the voices all around us, to those who need us to be bearers of Your love and compassion. May these gifts we give help us, through Your church, meet those needs. In the holy name of Jesus, we pray. Amen. (Acts 2:1-21)
