CALL TO CONFESSION

UNISON PRAYER OF CONFESSION-Unison

Loving God, sometimes we overlook the way in which those who went before us have witnessed to Your love. Forgive us, when we get caught up on our own problems that we do not take time to remember the mighty deeds and loving acts of Your beloved people. Help us to be truly thankful for all that they have done to make this church a special place where all are welcomed, nurtured, and challenged to serve in Your world. Prepare us for bold, creative service in the present for the future. Amen.
