GATHERING SONG - “Surely the Presence”


Surely the presence of the Lord is in this place,

I can feel His mighty power and His grace. I can hear the brush of angel's wings I see glory on each face;

Surely the presence of the Lord is in this place.

*SONG OF PRAISE – “Soul On Fire”


Chorus:

God, I'm running for Your heart I'm running for Your heart, Till I am a soul on fire Lord, I'm longing for Your ways, I'm waiting for the day,

When I am a soul on fire,

Till I am a soul on fire


Repeat Chorus


Lord, restore the joy I had, I have wandered, bring me back

In this darkness, lead me through, Until all I see is You

Lord, let me burn for You again, Let me return to You again And Lord, let me burn for You again, And let me return to You again


Chorus (Repeat)

OLD TESTAMENT READING – Ezekiel 37:1-14 Rev. Holly Hoppe


PRAYER OF CONFESSION Rev. Nancy Reeves

Spirit of God, you come to us as a powerful wind–but we have shut the door and bolted it, trying to keep You out. You descend on us as tongues of fire — but we run away, afraid of being consumed. You give us gifts beyond our ability — but we squander them, hide them, or say, “I’m too busy,” or “No, Lord, not me.” On this day of Pentecost, forgive our weakness. Break open the doors of resistance. Let the fire of your Spirit dance within each of us, and give us the courage and faith to claim your call for our lives. Hear us now Breath of Heaven as we lift to you the silent prayers of confession that lie upon our hearts.


ASSURANCE OF GOD’S FORGIVENESS

Chorus:

'Cause when You speak, and when You move,

When You do what only You can do, It changes us It changes what we see and what we seek When You come in the room,

When You do what only You can do, It changes us,

It changes what we see and what we seek


When You move, You move all our fears,

When You move, You move us to tears

When You move, You move all our fears

When You move, You move us to tears


When You fall, we fall on our knees, When You fall, we fall at Your feet

When You fall, we fall on our knees, When You fall, we fall at Your feet

Watch the waters part before us now

Tell the world of His great love,

Our God is the God who saves,

Our God is the God who saves

And the church will stand, she will endure
