Call to Worship
Let us worship God, our light and our salvation.

The Lord is the stronghold of our lives.
We desire to live in God’s house

and to seek God in his holy temple.
We have come with shouts of joy,
to sing and to make music to the Lord.
Let us worship God in spirit and in truth.

Teach us your ways and make straight our paths
in this hour of worship and always.
—based on Psalm 27; John 4:23

Confession of Sin
Blessed is the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavens in Christ. For he chose us in him, before the foundation of the world, to be holy and blameless in love before him. He predestined us to be adopted as sons through Jesus Christ for himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace that he lavished on us in the Beloved One.

In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace that he richly poured out on us with all wisdom and understanding. He made known to us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure that he purposed in Christ as a plan for the right time—to bring everything together in Christ, both things in heaven and things on earth in him.

 In him we have also received an inheritance, because we were predestined according to the plan of the one who works out everything in agreement with the purpose of his will, so that we who had already put our hope in Christ might bring praise to his glory.

 In him you also were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and when you believed. The Holy Spirit is the down payment of our inheritance, until the redemption of the possession, to the praise of his glory.
Ephesians 1:3-14

Assurance of Pardon
Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. For it is God who is working in you both to will and to work according to his good purpose. Do everything without grumbling and arguing, so that you may be blameless and pure, children of God who are faultless in a crooked and perverted generation, among whom you shine like stars in the world, by holding firm to the word of life.

–Philippians 2:12-16


I am confident of this, that he who started a good work in us will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
–Philippians 1:6

The Lord’s Supper
Blessed are you, Lord God of all creation,

for through your goodness we have received the bread we offer you:
fruit of the earth and work of human hands, it will become for us the bread of life.

Blessed are you, Lord God of all creation, 
for through your goodness we have received the wine we offer you:
fruit of the vine and work of human hands,
it will become our spiritual drink.

May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father,

who loved us and by his grace
gave us eternal encouragement and good hope,

Peace be with you. 
And also with you.
