Prelude

 

Welcome and Announcements

 

Introit                                    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*                                                               Revelation 4:11

“Worthy are you, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created.”

 

Hymn of Praise*                                             

“All Praise to God, Who Reigns Above”

 

Invocation*

Confession of Faith                                                     The Nicene Creed

I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible. And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Song of God, begotten of the Father before all worlds; God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God; begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father, by whom all things were made.

 

Who, for us men and for our salvation, came down from heaven, and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary, and was made man; and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate; He suffered and was buried; and the third day He rose again, according to the Scriptures; and ascended into heaven, and sits on the right hand of the Father; and He shall come again, with glory, to judge the quick and the dead; whose kingdom shall have no end.

 

And I believe in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of Life; who proceeds from the Father and the Son; who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified; who spoke by the prophets.

 

And I believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church. I acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins; and I look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.

 

Preparation for Confession of Sin                    Psalm 139:23-24

Assurance of Pardon                                              Psalm 32:8-11

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you. Be not like a horse or a mule, without understanding, which must be curbed with bit and bridle, or it will not stay near you. Many are the sorrows of the wicked, but steadfast love surrounds the one who trusts in the LORD. Be glad in the LORD, and rejoice, O righteous, and shout for joy, all you upright in heart!
