Chapel Time

Based on Psalm 46:10
Take some time to reflect on these words as you prepare for our Sunday worship:

Be still and know that I am God
Be still and know that I am
Be still and know
Be still
Be

 

A New Creed
The United Church of Canada 

We are not alone,
we live in God’s world.

We believe in God:
who has created and is creating,
who has come in Jesus,
the Word made flesh,
to reconcile and make new,
who works in us and others
by the Spirit.

We trust in God.

We are called to be the Church:
to celebrate God’s presence,
to live with respect in Creation,
to love and serve others,
to seek justice and resist evil,
to proclaim Jesus, crucified and risen,
our judge and our hope.

In life, in death, in life beyond death,
God is with us.
We are not alone.

Thanks be to God.

 

Prayer of Confession

God of mercy,
we confess
that we have often failed
to speak and act with kindness;
to care for others
as we have been cared for;
to welcome others
as we have been welcomed;
and to live as forgiven,
beloved people.  

Create in us hearts made new
by Your mercy and love
so that we may bring
Your joy and delight into the world. 

In Jesus’ name we pray,
Amen.

 

Assurance of Forgiveness 

 

Prayers of the People

As a church, we want to develop a regular rhythm
in our prayers of the people.
For this, the third Sunday of the month,
we will take time to pray & intercede
for our city, San Diego.

During this month of gratitude,
take time in silent personal prayer
to thank God for the people, places, organizations,
culture, and life that makes San Diego
the place we call home.  

Amen.
