The King of Kings
Call to Worship
In the midst of the congregation I will praise you.
Rejoice in the LORD, O you righteous,
and give thanks to God’s holy name!
I will extol you, my God and King,
and bless your name forever and ever.
Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised;
God’s greatness is unsearchable.
(from Psalm 22:22; 97:12; 145:1,3)
Confession of Sin
God of grace, we confess that we have elevated the things of this world above you.
We have made idols of possessions and often pursue them more than your kingdom.
Forgive us, O God, for the many ways we fall short of your glory.
Help us to learn to live together according to your ways through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
Assurance of Pardon
This is God’s promise in the gospel:
God has forgiven our sins and given us eternal life
by grace alone and Christ’s sacrifice finished on the cross.
(Heidelberg Catechism, Q.66)
As we go, let us hold fast to the word of life, Jesus Christ.
He is our great shepherd and true older brother.
Peace be with you all.
