And a voice came from the throne, saying, “Give praise to our God, all you His bond-servants, you who fear Him, the small and the great.” Then I heard something like the voice of a great multitude and like the sound of many waters and like the sound of mighty peals of thunder, saying, “Hallelujah! For the Lord our God, the Almighty, reigns.”  —Revelation 19:3-6

 

Prelude

Welcome and Announcements

Introit                                                                                         Adult Choir

“St. Elizabeth”

Praise to God immortal praise,

For the love that crowns our days:

Bounteous source of every joy,

Let Thy praise our tongues employ:

God to Thee praise be,

For the gifts Thou gavest free.

Flocks that whiten all the plain,

Yellow sheaves of whitened grain:

Clouds that drop their fattening dews,

Suns that temperate warmth diffuse:

God to Thee praises be,

For the gifts Thou gavest free.

Amen.

Call to Worship*                                                           Psalm 106:1-3, 48

Praise the LORD! Oh give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; for His lovingkindness is everlasting. Who can speak of the mighty deeds of the LORD, or can show forth all His praise? How blessed are those who keep justice, who practice righteousness at all times! ...Blessed be the LORD, the God of Israel, from everlasting even to everlasting. And let all the people say, “Amen.” Praise the LORD!

Hymn of Praise*

“Hail to the Lord’s Anointed”

Invocation*

Confession of Faith                                              Hebrews 9:21-28

And in the same way he sprinkled both the tabernacle and all the vessels of the ministry with the blood.

And according to the Law, one may almost say, all things are cleansed with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.

Therefore it was necessary for the copies of the things in the heavens to be cleansed with these, but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these.

For Christ did not enter a holy place made with hands, a mere copy of the true one, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us;

Nor was it that He would offer Himself often, as the high priest enters the holy place year by year with blood that is not his own.

Otherwise, He would have needed to suffer often since the foundation of the world; but now once at the consummation of the ages He has been manifested to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself.

And inasmuch as it is appointed for men to die once and after this comes judgment,

So Christ also, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time for salvation without reference to sin, to those who eagerly await Him.

Preparation for Confession of Sin                      Hebrews 13:1-5

Let love of the brethren continue. Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by this some have entertained angels without knowing it. Remember the prisoners, as though in prison with them, and those who are ill-treated, since you yourselves also are in the body. Marriage is to be held in honor among all, and the marriage bed is to be undefiled; for fornicators and adulterers God will judge. Make sure that your character is free from the l ove of money, being content with what you have; for He Himself has said, “I will never desert you, nor will I ever forsake you…”

Silent Confession of Sin

Corporate Confession of Sin

Assurance of Pardon                                             Hebrews 13:6-8

...so that we confidently say, “The Lord is my helper, I will not be afraid. What will man do to me? Remember those who led you, who spoke the word of God to you; and considering the result of their conduct, imitate their faith. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.

Hymn of Assurance*

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!
