CALL TO WORSHIP
Responsive Reading
Leader: Give thanks to the Lord, who is good,
People: Whose steadfast love endures forever.
Leader:
Blessed is the name of the Lord.
People: Hosanna in the highest!
All:
Let us all worship God.

*PRAYER OF ADORATION
UNISON PRAYER OF CONFESSION
God our Redeemer, we confess that we are people of ashes and dust. WE join the
parade and shout hosanna, then deny our Lord in his hour of need. WE wave the palms
and sing praise, then hand our savior over to die. Forgive us, God of grace. Our lives are
in your hand—deliver us from evil. Save us by your steadfast love, through Jesus Christ our
Lord.
SILENT PRAYER OF CONFESSION
ASSURANCE OF PARDON
Leader: Friends, believe the good news.
People: In Jesus Christ, we are forgiven.
