Welcome and Announcements

Introit                 Choir


Daniel Protheroe


As the deer pants for flowing streams, So longs my soul for You.

 I thirst for God, the living God; When can I meet anew?


 My tears have been my constant food Both in the night and day;

 While all day long insistently, “Where is this God?” they say.


Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why are you so distraught?

Trust God, for I will praise Him yet; My Savior and my God.  Amen.

Preparation for Confession of Sin                    Ephesians 5:3-10

But immorality or any impurity or greed must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints; and there must be no filthiness and silly talk, or coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks. For this you know with certainty, that no immoral or impure person or covetous man, who is an idolater, has an inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.

Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. Therefore do not be partakers with them; for you were formerly darkness, but now you are Light in the Lord; walk as children of Light (for the fruit of the Light consists in all goodness and righteousness and truth), trying to learn what is pleasing to the Lord.

Assurance of Pardon                                                  Psalm 33:1-5

Sing for joy in the Lord, O you righteous ones; Praise is becoming to the upright. Give thanks to the Lord with the lyre; Sing praises to Him with a harp of ten strings. Sing to Him a new song; Play skillfully with a shout of joy. For the word of the Lord is upright, And all His work is done in faithfulness. He loves righteousness and justice; The earth is full of the lovingkindness of the Lord.
