Lord’s Day Divine Worship

October 31, 2021 at 1:30 pm

“Therefore, since we receive a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us show gratitude, by which we may offer to God an acceptable service with reverence and awe; for our God is a consuming fire.” 

Hebrews 12:28-29



Welcome and Announcements

Introit                                                                                         Adult Choir

“How Gentle God’s Commands”


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, shall guide his children well.


 Why should this anxious load press down your weary mind?

 Haste to your heav’nly Father’s throne, and sweet refreshment find.

Call to Worship*                                                         Hebrews 12:22-24

But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to myriads of angels, to the general assembly and church of the firstborn who are enrolled in heaven, and to God, the Judge of all, and to the spirits of the righteous made perfect, and to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood, which speaks better than the blood of Abel.

Hymn of Praise*      #4

“All Praise to God, Who Reigns Above”


Confession of Faith                                           Hebrews 13:10-14

We have an altar from which those who serve the tabernacle have no right to eat. 

For the bodies of those animals whose blood is brought into the holy place by the high priest as an offering for sin, are burned outside the camp. 

Therefore Jesus also, that He might sanctify the people through His own blood, suffered outside the gate. 

So, let us go out to Him outside the camp, bearing His reproach. 

For here we do not have a lasting city, but we are seeking the city which is to come.

Preparation for Confession of Sin                            Luke 18:9-13

And He also told this parable to some people who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and viewed others with contempt: “Two men went up into the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee stood and was praying this to himself: ‘God, I thank You that I am not like other people: swindlers, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week; I pay tithes of all that I get.’ But the tax collector, standing some distance away, was even unwilling to lift up his eyes to heaven, but was beating his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me, the sinner!’ 

Silent Confession of Sin

Corporate Confession of Sin

Assurance of Pardon                                                      Luke 18:14

I tell you, this man went to his house justified rather than the other; for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but he who humbles himself will be exalted.”

Hymn of Assurance*                                                               #119J

Giving of Tithes and Offerings
