…”Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing.”              —Revelation 5:12



Welcome and Announcements

Introit                                                                                         Adult Choir


Grant me the Peace beyond all earthly knowing

The gentle Peace that came thru’ Boundless Woe;

And from the Cross, on waves adversely beating

Against my soul, may Jesus’ calm bestow.


O! grant the Peace whereby I would be willing

On earth to do God’s work, without dismay;

Devoid of fear and confidently dwelling

In God the Father’s love, thru’-out my day.


O! for the Peace, that, thru’ God’s City flowing

In noble stream sustains both Life and Light;

Peace after pain for weary pilgrims passing

From earth thru’ cloud beyond the veil of night.

Call to Worship*                                                                 Psalm 113:1-4

Praise the LORD! Praise, O servants of the LORD, praise the  name of the LORD. Blessed be the name of the LORD from this time forth and forever. From the rising of the sun to its setting
the name of the LORD is to be praised. YAHWEH is high above all nations; His glory is above the heavens.

Psalm of Praise*

“O Lord, I Will Exalt You”


Confession of Faith                                        The Apostle’s Creed

We believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth.

We 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 into 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.

We 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                  Proverbs 24:10-12

If you faint in the day of adversity, your strength is small. Rescue those who are being taken away to death; hold back those who are stumbling to the slaughter. If you say, “Behold, we did not know this,” does not he who weighs the heart perceive it? Does not he who keeps watch over your soul know it, and will he not repay man according to his work?

Psalm of Assurance*

“Your Hands Created and Established Me”

Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!
