Welcome and Announcements

“Shout joyfully to the LORD, all the earth. Serve the LORD with gladness; come before Him with joyful singing. Know that the LORD He is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; we are His people and the sheep of His pasture. Enter His gates with thanksgiving, and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him; bless His name. For the LORD is good; His lovingkindness is everlasting, and His faithfulness to all generations!”

Psalm 100

“Draw Nigh to God”


Draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh to you.

Draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh to you.

Acquaint thyself with the Lord, acquaint thyself with the Lord,

Draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh to you.

Call to Worship*                                                       Romans 11:33-36

Oh, the depth of the riches, both of the wisdom and knowledge, of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable His ways! For who has known the mind of the LORD, or who became His counselor? Or who has first given to Him that it might be paid back to him again? For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things, To Him be the glory forever. Amen!

“Amazing Grace”



Confession of Faith                The Westminster Larger Catechism

Q169 How hath Christ appointed bread and wine to be given and received in the sacrament of the Lord’s Supper?

Christ hath appointed the ministers of His Word, in the administration of this sacrament of the Lord’s Supper, to set apart the bread and wine from common use, by the word of institution, thanksgiving, and prayer; to take and break the bread, and to give both the bread and the wine to the communicants; who are, by the same appointment, to take and eat the bread, and to drink the wine, in thankful remembrance that the body of Christ was broken and given, and His blood shed, for them.

Preparation for Confession of Sin                                    Titus 3:1-3

Remind them to be submissive to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good work, to speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all people. For we ourselves were once foolish, disobedient, led astray, slaves to various passions and pleasures, passing our days in malice and envy, hated by others and hating one another.

Confession of Sin

Assurance of Pardon                                                    Titus 3:4-6

But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior...
