Come Thou Fount
[Youtube] [iTunes] [Spotify]

Call to Worship
Sing to the Lord a new song,
for he has done marvelous things;
his right hand and his holy arm
have worked salvation for him.

 The Lord has made his salvation known
and revealed his righteousness to the nations.
He has remembered his love
and his faithfulness to Israel;
all the ends of the earth have seen
the salvation of our God.

 Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth,
burst into jubilant song with music;
make music to the Lord with the harp,
with the harp and the sound of singing,
with trumpets and the blast of the ram’s horn—
shout for joy before the Lord, the King.
–Psalm 98:1-6

Confession of Sin
Everlasting God, 
In whom we live and move and have our being:
You have made us for yourself,
So that our hearts are restless until they rest in you.

Give us purity of heart and strength of purpose,
That no selfish passion may hinder us from knowing your will,
No weakness keep us from doing it;

That in your light we may see light clearly,
And in your service find perfect freedom
Through Jesus Christ, our Lord,
Who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
One God, now and forever. Amen.

Assurance of Pardon
When we were utterly helpless, Christ came at just the right time and died for us sinners. Now, most people would not be willing to die for an upright person, though someone might perhaps be willing to die for a person who is especially good. 
But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. And since we have been made right in God’s sight by the blood of Christ, he will certainly save us from God’s condemnation

 For since our friendship with God was restored by the death of his Son while we were still his enemies, we will certainly be saved through the life of his Son. 
So now we can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God because our Lord Jesus Christ has made us friends of God.
–Romans 5:6-11

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.

Confession of Sin
Merciful God,

we confess that we have sinned against you 
in thought, word, and deed,
by what we have done,
and by what we have left undone.
We have not loved you
with our whole heart and mind and strength.

We have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. 
In your mercy forgive what we have been, help us amend what we are,
and direct what we shall be,
so that we may delight in your will and walk in your ways,
to the glory of your holy name. Through Christ, our Lord. Amen.

My God (Psalm 54)

Assurance of Pardon
We know that our old sinful selves were crucified with Christ so that sin might lose its power in our lives.
We are no longer slaves to sin. For when we died with Christ we were set free from the power of sin.
–Romans 6:6-7

Hallelujah!
Thanks be to God!
Hallelujah!
Thanks be to God!

Service
Rejoice
[Youtube] [iTunes] [Spotify]

Call to Worship
Let us praise the name of the Lord 

for only he is worthy
Let us praise him with the heavens
Praise him all his angels, 
Praise him with the masses
Every power in Heaven and Earth 
will bow at His name

Let us gather together to praise our maker
Let us praise him with creation
Praise him, sun and moon, 
praise him, shining stars
All creation leaks the beauty of a great Artist

Let us praise Him who brings low the mighty
For He holds the world in His hand
Praise him kings and rulers, 
Praise Him young and old
For every knee will bow 
at the throne of God

Let us praise the name of the Lord
For he spoke and we were created
Let all the redeemed of God sing His praise

Praise Him who is always faithful to His word
Praise the Lord  
From Psalm 148

Confession of Sin
God of all nations, we praise you that in Christ

the barriers that have separated humanity are torn down. 
Yet we confess our slowness to open our hearts 
and minds to people of other lands, tongues, and races.
Deliver us from the sins of fear and prejudice,
that we may move toward the day
when all are truly one in Jesus Christ. 
Amen.

Assurance of Pardon
Christ is our peace;

those who are divided
he has made one.
He has broken down the barriers 
of separation by his death 
and has built us up into one body, with God.
To all who repent and believe
he has promised reconciliation.
So live as people reconciled. 
Amen.
–Based on Ephesians 2:11-22
