Welcome and Announcements

Call to Worship:
Let the heavens be glad and let the earth rejoice!
Christ will reign forever and ever.
The Lord is robed in majesty and girded in strength.
Christ will reign forever and ever.
God has established the world, and God’s realm will never be shaken.
Christ will reign forever and ever.
God will judge the world with righteousness and the peoples with equity.
Christ will reign forever and ever.
The kingdom of this world has become the kingdom of our Lord.
Christ will reign forever and ever. 

Prayer of the Day:
Holy God, by your Word and Spirit,
come and transform your church
to be a living sign of your love for the world.
By your Spirit empower us to love all we meet
and to minister to all in need,
sheep following our shepherd king.
Then at the last bring us to your eternal realm
where we may worship and adore you
and be welcomed into your everlasting joy;
through Jesus Christ our Savior. Amen. 

Call to Confession

Prayer of Confession:
Righteous God,
you have crowned Jesus Christ as Lord of all.
We confess that we have not bowed before him
and are slow to recognize his rule.
We give allegiance to the powers of this world
and fail to be governed by justice and love.
We do good works for recognition instead of out of mercy,
and we lose sight of the neighbors before us.
In your mercy, forgive us.
Guide us with your gentle strength,
showing us the way to humbly love and be loved
as participants in your ministry
in this world and beyond. 

Assurance of Forgiveness

Time with the Young Church: Children's Bulletin
Questions to ask:
I wonder... What part of the Bible story is most important for me today?
I wonder... When did I experience something beautiful or good this past week?
I wonder... Who and what am I thankful for today? 

Prayer for Illumination:
Sovereign God,
let your Word rule in our hearts
and your Spirit guide our lives
until at last we see the fulfillment
of your realm of justice and peace;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Gospel Reading: Matthew 25:31-46
Sermon: When Do We See? - Mary Sellers Shaw

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

Prayers of the People:
Lord in your mercy,
Hear our prayer.
The Lord’s Prayer:
Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors;
and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever.
