Opening Song: Lift High the Name of Jesus,     on screen

Words of Scripture: Based on Psalm 107

Leader: O let us give thanks to the Lord,
People: For the love of God will never end.
Leader: Let we who love God be unashamed to declare it,
People: Because God has answered our cries for help.
Leader: The Lord our God has met our every need,
People: We will therefore proclaim the love of the Lord!

Song: Thank You Lord,   on screen

Prayer of Confession: Loving God, thank you for seasons and for holidays that remind us to be grateful.  Sadly, it is easier for us to complain, to be negative, and to be ungrateful.  Father forgive us for attitudes that only blind us to blessings.  Thank you for moments that give us perspective.  In these moments, help us to remember your goodness, help us to experience your loving kindness, and may your Spirit remind us of the good news we have in your Son.  Through Jesus, you have given us a reason to be thankful at all times.  May Christ fill our hearts this morning as we worship you, our reason to be thankful in all circumstances, in Christ's name we pray.

Assurance of Pardon: Because God is gracious, because Jesus is alive and because the Holy Spirit is at work within us, we who were dead in sin have reason to give thanks, for in Christ we are forgiven
