Call to Worship

Hallelujah!
My soul, praise the Lord.
I will praise the Lord all my life;
I will sing to my God as long as I live.

Do not trust in nobles,
in a son of man, who cannot save.
When his breath leaves him,
he returns to the ground;
on that day his plans die.

Happy is the one whose help is the God of Jacob,
whose hope is in the Lord his God,
the Maker of heaven and earth,
the sea and everything in them.
He remains faithful forever,
executing justice for the exploited
and giving food to the hungry.

The Lord frees prisoners.
The Lord opens the eyes of the blind.
The Lord raises up those who are oppressed.
The Lord loves the righteous.
The Lord protects resident aliens
and helps the fatherless and the widow,
but he frustrates the ways of the wicked.

The Lord reigns forever;
Zion, your God reigns for all generations.
Hallelujah!

I Thank God

Confession
The proof of God’s amazing love is this:
While we were sinners, Christ died for us.
Let us therefore approach the throne of grace with boldness,
so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
Trusting in God’s faithfulness and compassion,
let us confess our sin before God and one another.
—based on Romans 5:8; Hebrews 4:16

Assurance

Who is a God like you,
forgiving iniquity and passing over rebellion
for the remnant of his inheritance?
You do not stay angry forever
but delight to show mercy.

You will again have compassion on us;
you will tread our sins underfoot
and hurl all our iniquities into the depths of the sea.

You will show loyalty to Jacob
and faithful love to Abraham,
as you swore to our ancestors
from days long ago.

Call to Worship

We will be glad and exult in you;
we will sing praise to your name, O Most High.

Confession
Merciful God,
you made us in your image,
with a mind to know you,
a heart to love you,
and a will to serve you.
But our knowledge is imperfect,
our love inconstant,
our obedience incomplete.
Day by day, we fail to grow into your likeness.
In your tender love, forgive us
through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

Assurance
The LORD is merciful and gracious,
slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
As a father has compassion for his children,
so the LORD has compassion for those who fear him.
For he knows how we were made;
he remembers that we are dust.
But the steadfast love of the LORD is from
everlasting to everlasting
on those who fear him,
and his righteousness to children’s children,
to those who keep his covenant
and remember to do his commandments.
—Psalm 103:8, 13-14, 17-18

For The Beauty Of The Earth

[Youtube] [iTunes] [Spotify]


Call to Worship

The earth is the LORD’s and all that is in it,

the world, and those who live in it;
for he has founded it on the seas,
and established it on the rivers.

Highest of all creation,
he lives among the least.
He journeys with the rejected
and welcomes the weary.

The diseased, depressed,
dysfunctional and defeated;
God invites us into His healing
presence in faith and expectancy.

Then shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth.
Worship the LORD with gladness;
come before him with joyful songs.
Our help is in the name of the Lord,
who made heaven and earth.

— Based on Psalm 24:1-2, Psalm 100

Confession
Lord, in your mercy hear our prayer:

Christ’s finished work on the cross has granted us peace with God.
Yet we often struggle to believe that we are justified.
Though you have given us a peace that passes all understanding,
we confess that we are prone to worry and anxiety.

Though you have prepared good works for us to walk in,
we struggle to work in the peace and rest of your goodness.
God of all grace and mercy, we confess that we live among a people
who toil night and day trusting in the work of their own hands.
And we confess that the sins of our culture have stained our hands also.
Christ have mercy and help us strive to enter the peace of your rest


Assurance
“Therefore I tell you: Don’t worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Isn’t life more than food and the body more than clothing? Consider the birds of the sky: They don’t sow or reap or gather into barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Aren’t you worth more than they? Can any of you add one moment to his life span by worrying? And why do you worry about clothes? Observe how the wildflowers of the field grow: They don’t labor or spin thread. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was adorned like one of these. If that’s how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and thrown into the furnace tomorrow, won’t he do much more for you—you of little faith? So don’t worry, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear?’ For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be provided for you. Therefore don’t worry about tomorrow, because tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

— Matthew 6:25-34
