“Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus”


Come, thou long expected Jesus, born to set thy people free;

 from our fears and sins release us; let us find our rest in thee.

 Israel’s strength and consolation, hope of all thee earth thou art,

 dear Desire of ev’ry nation, joy of ev’ry longing heart.


 Born thy people to deliver, born a child and yet a king,

 born to reign in us forever, now thy gracious kingdom bring.

 By thine own eternal spirit rule in all our hearts alone;

 by thine all sufficient merit, raise us to thy glorious throne.

Call to Worship*                                                                    Psalm 95:1-2

O come, let us sing for joy to the Lord, let us shout joyfully to the rock of our salvation. Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving, let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms.

Hymn of Praise*            #194

“O Come, O Come Emmanuel”


Confession of Faith                                              Hebrews 9:11-15

But when Christ appeared as a high priest of the good things to come, He entered through the greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this creation; 


and not through the blood of goats and calves, but through His own blood, He entered the holy place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption. 


For if the blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a heifer sprinkling those who have been defiled sanctify for the cleansing of the flesh, 


how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without blemish to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?


For this reason He is the mediator of a new covenant, so that, since a death has taken place for the redemption of the transgressions that were committed under the first covenant, those who have been called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance.

Preparation for Confession of Sin                     Psalm 139:23-24

Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me and know my anxious thoughts; and see if there be any hurtful way in me, and lead me in the everlasting way.

Silent Confession of Sin

Corporate Confession of Sin

Assurance of Pardon                                                       1 John 1:9

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Hymn of Assurance*                                                                #507

“Approach, My Soul, the Mercy Seat”

Giving of Tithes and Offerings                                               

Prayer of Response

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

And to the Holy Ghost; as it was in the beginning,

Is now, and ever shall be, world without end.

Amen, amen.
