Call to Worship
Come, bow down and worship, kneel to the Lord, our Maker.

This is our God, our shepherd, we are the flock led with care.
I will sing of your steadfast love, O LORD, forever;

with my mouth I will proclaim your faithfulness to all generations.
I declare that your steadfast love is established forever;

your faithfulness is as firm as the heavens.

 

You said, “I have made a covenant with my chosen one,
I have sworn to my servant David:
‘I will establish your descendants forever,
and build your throne for all generations.’”
Praise the Lord!
Based on Psalm 95:6-7, Psalm 89:1-4

Confession of Sin
Father of all history, 

from Genesis to Revelation your word is breathed by your Spirit, 
Yet we confess that we can doubt the truth of your word
Christ, have mercy

The story of the Bible reveals you to be a promise maker and promise keeper
Yet we confess our fear and anxiety that reveal our weak faith
Lord, have mercy

Israel’s story climaxes with the gospel of Jesus Christ which is pure grace
Yet we confess that we still measure ourselves and others with metrics of performance and achievement. 
Christ, have mercy

Assurance of Pardon
Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. I also saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared like a bride adorned for her husband.

Then I heard a loud voice from the throne: Look, God’s dwelling is with humanity, and he will live with them. They will be his peoples, and God himself will be with them and will be their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes. Death will be no more; grief, crying, and pain will be no more, because the previous things have passed away.
Revelation 21:1-4

A God Who Saves

Call to Worship
The Lord is faithful in all his words
and kind in all his works.

The Lord upholds all who are falling

and raises up all who are bowed down.
The eyes of all look to you,
and you give them their food in due season.

You open your hand;

you satisfy the desire of every living thing.
The Lord is righteous in all his ways
and kind in all his works.

The Lord is near to all who call on him,

to all who call on him in truth.
He fulfills the desire of those who fear him;
he also hears their cry and saves them.

The Lord preserves all who love him,

but all the wicked he will destroy.
My mouth will speak the praise of the Lord,
and let all flesh bless his holy name forever and ever.
–Psalm 145:13-21

 King Of My Heart
[Youtube] [iTunes] [Spotify]

Confession of Sin
Heavenly Father, you are our great  King. We are eager to declare our willingness to go where you command and follow wherever you lead. Yet we confess that we are very weak and fickle.  We are easily distracted, constantly diverted from your ways, and quick to follow our own sinful hearts instead. As we plan our futures, we think more of our safety, comfort, and financial profit than we do of laying down our lives for the sake of your kingdom. We are  eager to please our families and friends, and slow to consider your calling and your glory our highest goal.


Teach us what it means to take up our cross daily and follow you. Help us put to death our overwhelming desires to control our own lives in the present and future. Show us the emptiness of owning nice things, the shallowness of the praise of others, and the offensiveness of our enormous pride. Fill us with such a burning passion for your glory that we will suffer any loss, ridicule, inconvenience, or cost, in order to hear your name praised in every land, from the rising of the sun to the place where it sets. Change our selfish hearts. Enlarge them with a love and gratitude towards you so immense and powerful that following you  will be our greatest joy and delight. Amen.

Assurance of Pardon
God demonstrates his own love for us in this:
While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness

and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves,
in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
Therefore, since we have been justified through faith,
we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
—Romans 5:8; Colossians 1:13-14; Romans 5:1

Call to Worship
There is none like you, O Lord,
nor are there any works like yours.
All the nations you have made shall come
and bow down before you, O Lord,
and shall glorify your name.
For you are great and do wondrous things,
you alone are God.
—from Psalm 86:8-10

 What A Friend We Have In Jesus
[Youtube] [iTunes] [Spotify]

Confession of Sin
For the word of God is living and effective and sharper than any double-edged sword, penetrating as far as the separation of soul and spirit, joints and marrow. It is able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. No creature is hidden from him, but all things are naked and exposed to the eyes of him to whom we must give an account.
–Hebrews 4:12-13

Raise Our Song

Assurance of Pardon
Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens—Jesus the Son of God—let us hold fast to our confession. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who has been tempted in every way as we are, yet without sin. Therefore, let us approach the throne of grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in time of need.
–Hebrews 4:15-16

The Lord’s Supper
Our Lord Jesus Christ, on the night when he was betrayed, took the bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples and said: Take; eat; this is my body which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me. In the same way he also took the cup after the supper, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them saying, Drink of it, all of you. This cup is the New Testament in my blood, shed for you for the forgiveness of sins. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.”

May the love of the Father enfold us,

come down upon us and remain with us always.
Peace be with you all. 
And also with you.
