Call to Worship
The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it.
The world and all its people belong to him.
For he laid the earth’s foundation on the seas
and built it on the ocean depths.

Who may climb the mountain of the Lord?
Who may stand in his holy place?
Only those whose hands and hearts are pure,
who do not worship idols
and do not swear deceitfully.

They will receive the Lord’s blessing
and have a right relationship with God their savior.
Such people may seek you
and worship in your presence, O God of Jacob.

Open up, ancient gates!
Open up, ancient doors,
and let the King of glory enter.
Who is the King of glory?
The Lord, strong and mighty;
the Lord, invincible in battle.

Open up, ancient gates!
Open up, ancient doors,
and let the King of glory enter.
Who is the King of glory?
The Lord of Heaven’s Armies.
He is the King of glory.
— Psalm 24

Fairest Lord Jesus

Confession
God, your great power is on display in all creation.
You who created the oceans and the galaxies
have also created people into your own image.
But we have failed to love you again and again.
We have failed to hear and obey your Word.
We have failed to recognize your grace in our lives.

Draw our heart and minds back to you, Lord.
Open our eyes to see your work.
Lead our feet in the paths of life.
Amen.

Assurance
Hear this church, and rejoice!
God’s plan of redemption was established before the foundation of the earth?
God promised that someone would crush the serpent’s head?
God declared that Abraham’s family would bless the whole world?

We proclaim the One who was promised, who came and died.
We tell of the One who bore the sins of the world.
We declare the One who has risen and ascended to the Father.

May we all be assured that God restores us in times of trouble.
God brings peace and rest to our tired souls.
He rescues us from the depths of ruin in this world.
Praise God for his promises. Praise him for the works of his hands. Amen.

Benediction
The love of God the Father, the faithful creator,
the peace of Christ, the word made flesh,
the joy of the Holy Spirit who unites us in our mission.
The hope of the Three in One
surround and encourage you
today, tonight, and forever.

Amen.
