PRELUDE – “Let Everything That Has Breath” by Matt Redman

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Psalm 9:1-2

I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart;
    I will recount all of your wonderful deeds.
I will be glad and exult in you;
    I will sing praise to your name, O Most High.

Let’s stand and recount the Lord’s goodness together in our worship. 

SONG –

Speak, O Lord” by Keith Getty and Stuart Townend

CONFESSION OF SIN – Matthew 6:30-33

But if God so clothes the grass of the field, 

which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, 

will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 

Therefore do not be anxious, saying, 

‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 

For the Gentiles seek after all these things, 

and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. 

But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, 

and all these things will be added to you.

Let’s take a moment and repent for the ways we fall into anxiety and do not trust our Heavenly Father to provide for his children. 

ASSURANCE OF PARDON –1 Thessalonians 5:9-10

For God has not destined us for wrath,

but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ,

who died for us so that whether we are awake or asleep we might live with him.

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Deut. 32:10-12

(The Lord) found him in a desert land,
    and in the howling waste of the wilderness;
he encircled him, he cared for him,
    he kept him as the apple of his eye.
Like an eagle that stirs up its nest,
    that flutters over its young,
spreading out its wings, catching them,
    bearing them on its pinions,
the Lord alone guided him,
    no foreign god was with him.

SONG –

Great Is Thy Faithfulness” by Thomas Obediah Chisholm and William Marion Runyan

CONFESSION OF SIN – Neh. 9:17-21

But you are a God ready to forgive, gracious and merciful, 

slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love, and did not forsake them. 

Even when they had made for themselves a golden calf and said, 

‘This is your God who brought you up out of Egypt,’ 

and had committed great blasphemies, 

you in your great mercies did not forsake them in the wilderness. 

The pillar of cloud to lead them in the way did not depart from them by day, 

nor the pillar of fire by night to light for them the way by which they should go.  

You gave your good Spirit to instruct them 

and did not withhold your manna from their mouth 

and gave them water for their thirst.

Forty years you sustained them in the wilderness, and they lacked nothing. 

Their clothes did not wear out and their feet did not swell.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON –Roman 5:8

But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, 

much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God.

Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. 

For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, 

but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. 

Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, 

that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

CONFESSION OF SIN – 

Let’s confess our sins together using this prayer. Please read the bolded verses aloud.

Minister: Blessed Jesus,
you offered us all your blessings when you announced
Blessed are the poor in spirit
People: but we have been rich in pride.
Minister: Blessed are those who mourn
People: but we have not known much sorrow for our sin.
Minister: Blessed are the meek
People: but we are a stiff-necked people.
Minister: Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness
People: but we are filled to the full with other things.
Minister: Blessed are the merciful”
People: but we are harsh and impatient.
Minister: Blessed are the pure in heart
People: but we have impure hearts.
Minister: Blessed are the peacemakers
People: but we have not sought reconciliation.
Minister: Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness
People: but our lives do not challenge the world.
Minister: Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you
and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me
People: but we have hardly made it known that we are yours.
Minister: Your Law is holy and your benedictions are perfect,
but they are both too great for us.
You alone are blessed.
People: We plead with you to forgive our sins
and give us the blessing of your righteousness.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Psalm 103:8-12

The Lord is merciful and gracious,
    slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
He will not always chide,
    nor will he keep his anger forever.
He does not deal with us according to our sins,
    nor repay us according to our iniquities.
For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
    so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him;
as far as the east is from the west,
    so far does he remove our transgressions from us.

Affirmation of Faith —Article 1 of the New Hampshire Confession of Faith

Let’s confess our common faith together using first article of the New Hampshire Confession of Faith.

I. Of the Scriptures
We believe that the Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired, and is a perfect treasure of heavenly instruction; that it has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth without any mixture of error for its matter, that it reveals the principles by which God will judge us; and therefore is, and shall remain to the end of the world, the true center of Christian union , and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and opinions should be tried.

CONFESSION OF SIN – Isa. 6:1-5

In the year that King Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, 

high and lifted up; and the train of his robe filled the temple. 

Above him stood the seraphim. 

Each had six wings: with two he covered his face, 

and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. 

And one called to another and said:

“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts;
the whole earth is full of his glory!”

And the foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of him who called, 

and the house was filled with smoke. 

And I said: “Woe is me! For I am lost; for I am a man of unclean lips, 

and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; 

for my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts!”

Let’s take a moment to reflect on the Holiness of God repent of our sins against him

(Moment of Silence)

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Isa. 6:5

Then one of the seraphim flew to me, 

having in his hand a burning coal that he had taken with tongs from the altar. 

And he touched my mouth and said: 

“Behold, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away, and your sin atoned for.”

CONFESSION OF SIN – Haggai 1:7-11

“Thus says the Lord of hosts: Consider your ways. 

Go up to the hills and bring wood and build the house, 

that I may take pleasure in it and that I may be glorified, says the Lord. 

You looked for much, and behold, it came to little. 

And when you brought it home, I blew it away. 

Why? declares the Lord of hosts.

 Because of my house that lies in ruins, 

while each of you busies himself with his own house. 

Therefore, the heavens above you have withheld the dew, 

and the earth has withheld its produce. 

And I have called for a drought on the land and the hills, 

on the grain, the new wine, the oil, 

on what the ground brings forth, 

on man and beast, 

and on all their labors.”

In light of the ways we ignore the household of God in solely caring for our own welfare, let’s take a moment to repent of our sins and commit ourselves again towards the work of God’s kingdom.

(Moment of Silence)

ASSURANCE OF CARE – Matt. 6:25-33

Jesus tells those who have trusted in him in Matt. 6:25-33

“Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, 

what you will eat or what you will drink, 

nor about your body, what you will put on. 

Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 

Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, 

and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. 

Are you not of more value than they? 

And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?[g]

And why are you anxious about clothing? 

Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, 

yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 

But if God so clothes the grass of the field, 

which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, 

will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?

Therefore do not be anxious, saying, 

‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 

For the Gentiles seek after all these things, 

and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. 

But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, 

and all these things will be added to you.

Let the godly exult in glory;

Let the high praises of God be in their throats
    and two-edged swords in their hands,
to execute vengeance on the nations
    and punishments on the peoples,

All Praise to Him” by Bob Kauflin and Matt Merker

CONFESSION OF SIN – 

Let’s confess our sins together. Read this prayer with me.

Gracious God,

 we confess that we have longed too much for the comforts of this world. We have loved the gifts more than the giver. 

In your mercy, help us to see 

that all the things we pine for are shadows, but you are substance; 

that they are quicksands, but you are mountain; 

that they are shifting, but you are anchor. 

We plead your forgiveness on the merits of Jesus Christ. 

Accept his worthiness for our unworthiness, 

his sinlessness for our transgressions, 

his fullness for our emptiness, 

his glory for our shame, 

his righteousness for our dead works, 

his death for our life. 

We pray in Jesus name. 

Amen.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Jeremiah 31:31-34

“Behold, the days are coming, declares the Lord, 

when I will make a new covenant 

with the house of Israel and the house of Judah, 

not like the covenant that I made with their fathers 

on the day when I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, 

my covenant that they broke, though I was their husband, 

declares the Lord. 

For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares the Lord: 

I will put my law within them, and I will write it on their hearts. 

And I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 

And no longer shall each one teach his neighbor and each his brother, 

saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they shall all know me, 

from the least of them to the greatest, 

declares the Lord. 

For I will forgive their iniquity, 

and I will remember their sin no more.”

For we do not present our pleas before you because of our righteousness, 

but because of your great mercy. 

O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive. 

O Lord, pay attention and act. 

Delay not, for your own sake, O my God, 

because your city and your people are called by your name.”

CONFESSION OF SIN – 

Merciful Lord, we confess that with us there is an abundance of sin, 

but in you there is the fullness of righteousness and abundance of mercy. 

We are spiritually poor, but you are rich 

and in Jesus Christ came to be merciful to the poor. 

Strengthen our faith and trust in you. 

We are empty vessels that need to be filled; fill us. 

We are weak in faith; strengthen us. 

We are cold in love; warm us, and make our hearts fervent for you 

that our love may go out to one another and to our neighbors. 

Through Jesus Christ our Lord. 

Amen.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Eph. 2:4-7

Hear this assurance of Pardon

But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy,

 made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions

—it is by grace you have been saved. 

 And God raised us up with Christ 

and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, 

in order that in the coming ages 

he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, 

expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus.
