Welcome and Announcements
Introit “How Gentle God’s Commands” Choir
How gentle God’s commands, how kind his precepts are!
Come, cast your burdens on the Lord, and trust His constant care.
While Providence supports, let saints securely dwell;
That hand which bears all nature up, and guide his children well.
Please use this time to set your hearts on Christ and pray for the Word, our worship, and that holiness and reverence will be known among us.
Call to Worship* Psalm 27:4-5
One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to meditate in his temple. For he will hide me in his shelter in the day of trouble; he will conceal me under the cover of his tent; he will lift me high upon a rock.

Confession of Faith The Apostles Creed
Church, what is it that you believe?
I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; he descended to hell. The third day he rose again from the dead. He ascended to heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty. From there he will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic* church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.
*that is, the true Christian church of all times and all places
Preparation for Confession of Sin Psalm 28:1-2
To you, O Lord, I call; my rock, be not deaf to me, lest, if you be silent to me, I become like those who go down to the pit. Hear the voice of my please for mercy, when I cry to you for help, when I lift up my hands toward your most holy sanctuary.
Confession of Sin
Assurance of Pardon Psalm 28:6-7
