AFFIRMATION OF FAITH – The New Hampshire Confession of Faith, Article IV

CONGREGATION:

We believe that the salvation of sinners is wholly of grace;

through the mediatorial offices of the Son of God;

who by the appointment of the Father,

freely took upon him our nature, yet without sin;

honored the divine law by his personal obedience,

and by his death made a full atonement for our sins;

that having risen from the dead

he is now enthroned in heaven;

and uniting in his wonderful person

the tenderest sympathies with divine perfections,

he is every way qualified to be a suitable,

a compassionate,

and an all-sufficient Savior.

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Psalm 100

Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth!

Serve the Lord with gladness!

Come into his presence with singing!

Know that the Lord, he is God!

It is he who made us, and we are his;

we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

Enter his gates with thanksgiving,

and his courts with praise!

Give thanks to him; bless his name!

For the Lord is good;

his steadfast love endures forever,

and his faithfulness to all generations.

Song –

Come Thou Fount” by John Wyeth and Robert Robinson

CONFESSION OF SIN – from the Worship Sourcebook #51

God of everlasting love,

we confess that we have been unfaithful

to our covenant with you and with one another.

We have worshipped other gods:

money, power, greed, and convenience.

We have served our own self-interest

instead of serving only you and your people.

We have not loved our neighbor as you have commanded,

nor have we rightly loved ourselves.

CONGREGATION:

Forgive us, gracious God,

and bring us back into the fullness

of our covenant with you and one another.

Through Christ, our Lord.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Lamentations 3:22-23

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;

his mercies never come to an end;

they are new every morning.

Songs –

How Can I Keep From Singing?” by Chris Tomlin

Blessed Be Your Name” by Matt Redman

AFFIRMATION OF FAITH – The Apostle’s Creed

We believe in God the Father Almighty,

Maker of Heaven and Earth.

And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord,

who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,

born of the Virgin Mary,

suffered under Pontius Pilate,

was crucified, dead, and buried.

He descended into hell

and on the third day he rose again from the dead.

He ascended into heaven

and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty,

from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.

We believe in the Holy Spirit,

the holy catholic church,

the communion of saints,

the forgiveness of sins,

the resurrection of the body,

and the life everlasting. Amen.

CONFESSION OF SIN

CONGREGATION:

Almighty and merciful God,

we have erred and strayed from your ways

like lost sheep.

We have followed too much the devices and desires

of our own hearts.

We have offended against your holy laws.

We have left undone those things

which we ought to have done;

and we have done those things

which we ought not to have done.

O Lord, have mercy upon us.

Spare those who confess their faults.

Restore those who are penitent,

according to your promises

declared to the world

in Christ Jesus, our Lord.

And grant, O merciful God,

for his sake,

that we may live a holy, just, and humble life

to the glory of your holy name.

Amen.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Exodus 34:5-8

The Lord descended in the cloud and stood with [Moses] there,

and proclaimed the name of the Lord.

The Lord passed before him and proclaimed,

“The Lord, the Lord, a God merciful and gracious,

slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness,

keeping steadfast love for thousands,

forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin,

but who will by no means clear the guilty,

visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children and the children’s children,

to the third and the fourth generation.”

And Moses quickly bowed his head toward the earth and worshiped.

It is good to give thanks to the Lord, to sing praises to your name, O Most High; to declare your steadfast love in the morning, and your faithfulness by night, to the music of the lute and the harp, to the melody of the lyre. For you, O Lord, have made me glad by your work; at the works of your hands I sing for joy.

POSTLUDE – “I Will Follow” by Jon Guerra

At Table Talk last Sunday Jack and James led a great discussion on “Bridging the Secular Divide.” Here are 5 examples they gave of the ways many non-Christians in the city think and act:

1. All you have is now.

Non-Christians don’t think about what life will be like 10,000 years.

YOLO/Carpe Diem

2. Non-Christians think they are more free than Christians.

Our culture focuses on individualism.

Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness!

3. Jumping on bandwagons

People do what’s popular.

Could be sports, tv shows, movies.

4. Focus on science.

Believing in the Bible is not easy.

5. Non-Christians see us as hypocrites/judgmental.

Let’s reflect on the ministry of Jesus and think how we can be more like him with non-Christians…

CONFESSION OF SIN

Song –

Have Mercy on Me” by Dale Bischof and Pat Sczebel

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Titus 3:4-7

When the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared,

he saved us,

not because of works done by us in righteousness,

but according to his own mercy,

by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit,

whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior,

so that being justified by his grace

we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

Song –

Not in Me” by David L. Ward and Eric Shumacher

AFFIRMATION OF FAITH – New Hampshire Confession of Faith Article V

CONGREGATION:

We believe that the great Gospel blessing

which Christ secures to such as believe in Him

is Justification;

that Justification includes the pardon of sin,

and the promise of eternal life on principles of righteousness;

that it is bestowed,

not in consideration of any works of righteousness

which we have done,

but solely through faith in the Redeemer’s blood;

by virtue of which faith His perfect righteousness

is freely imputed to us of God;

that it brings us into a state of most blessed peace

and favor with God,

and secures every other blessing needful

for time and eternity.

POSTLUDE – “We Want To See Jesus Lifted High” by Noel Richards

On the third Sundays of every month there’s a meal after our worship service. Plan to stick around and eat!

This Sunday during the meal Kara will be sharing about her upcoming work in Germany.

After that, there will be a short, optional seminar that you won’t want to miss on “Bridging the Secular Divide.” It’s designed to help us better understand how the unbelievers around us think and act. And we’ll be explaining a new evangelistic focus for our Sunday Morning Prayer Meetings this year.
