PRELUDE – “In Tenderness” by Citizens

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Hebrews 12:25-29

See that you do not refuse him who is speaking.

For if they did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth,

much less will we escape if we reject him who warns from heaven.

At that time his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised,

“Yet once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.”

This phrase, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of things that are shaken –

that is, things that have been made –

in order that the things that cannot be shaken may remain.

Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken,

and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship,

with reverence and awe,

for our God is a consuming fire.

Kindness” by Chris Tomlin

CONFESSION OF SIN

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Psalm 32:1-5

Blessed is the one whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.

Blessed is the man against whom the Lord counts no iniquity,

and in whose spirit there is no deceit.

For when I kept silent, my bones wasted away

through my groaning all day long.

For day and night your hand was heavy upon me;

my strength was dried up as by the heat of summer.

I acknowledged my sin to you,

and I did not cover my iniquity;

I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,”

and you forgave the iniquity of my sin.

Song –

Cornerstone” by Edward Mote, Eric Liljero, Jonas Myrin, Reuben Morgan, and William Batchelder Bradbury

AFFIRMATION OF FAITH – The Apostles’ 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.

The third day he rose again from the dead.

He ascended into heaven,

and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;

from there he will 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.

PRELUDE – “No Shame” by Psallos

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Psalm 96

Oh sing to the Lord a new song;

sing to the Lord, all the earth!

Sing to the Lord, bless his name;

tell of his salvation from day to day.

Declare his glory among the nations,

his marvelous works among all the peoples!

For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised;

he is to be feared above all gods.

For all the gods of the peoples are worthless idols,

but the Lord made the heavens.

Splendor and majesty are before him;

strength and beauty are in his sanctuary.

Ascribe to the Lord, O families of the peoples,

ascribe to the Lord glory and strength!

Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;

bring an offering, and come into his courts!

Worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness;

tremble before him, all the earth!

Say among the nations, “The Lord reigns!

Yes, the world is established; it shall never be moved;

he will judge the peoples with equity.”

Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice;

let the sea roar, and all that fills it;

let the field exult, and everything in it!

Then shall all the trees of the forest sing for joy

before the Lord, for he comes,

for he comes to judge the earth.

He will judge the world in righteousness,

and the peoples in his faithfulness.

This he set aside, nailing it to the cross.

PRELUDE – “Romans 10” by Streetlights Bible

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Psalm 95:1-8

Oh come, let us sing to the Lord;

let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!

Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving;

let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!

For the Lord is a great God,

and a great King above all gods.

In his hand are the depths of the earth;

the heights of the mountains are his also.

The sea is his, for he made it,

and his hands formed the dry land.

Oh come, let us worship and bow down;

let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker!

For he is our God,

and we are the people of his pasture,

and the sheep of his hand.

Today, if you hear his voice,

do not harden your hearts.

Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God,

you will not be pleased with a burnt offering.

The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit;

a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.

PRELUDE – “Upon a Life (feat. Sandra McCracken)” by Indelible Grace

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – 1 Corinthians 1:18-31

The word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing,

but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.

For it is written,

“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise,

and the discernment of the discerning I will thwart.”

Where is the one who is wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age?

Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?

For since, in the wisdom of God, the world did not know God through wisdom,

it pleased God through the folly of what we preach to save those who believe.

For Jews demand signs and Greeks seek wisdom,

but we preach Christ crucified,

a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles,

but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks,

Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.

For the foolishness of God is wiser than men,

and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

For consider your calling, brothers:

not many of you were wise according to worldly standards,

not many were powerful, not many were of noble birth.

But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise;

God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong;

God chose what is low and despised in the world,

even things that are not, to bring to nothing things that are,

so that no human being might boast in the presence of God.

And because of him you are in Christ Jesus,

who became to us wisdom from God, righteousness and sanctification and redemption,

so that, as it is written,

“Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.”

Song –

Oh For A Thousand Tongues to Sing” by Carl Gotthelf Glaser, and Charles Wesley

CONFESSION OF SIN

EVERYONE:

Most merciful God,
we confess that we have sinned against You
in thought, word, and deed,
by what we have done,
and by what we have left undone.
We have not loved You with our whole heart;
we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves.
We are truly sorry and we humbly repent.
For the sake of Your Son Jesus Christ,
have mercy on us and forgive us;
that we may delight in Your will,
and walk in Your ways,
to the glory of Your Name. Amen.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – 2 Corinthians 5:21

For our sake God made Christ to be sin who knew no sin,

so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – 1 John 1:9

If we confess our sins,

AFFIRMATION OF FAITH – Heidelberg Catechism (1563), Q. 60

LEADER:

How are you righteous before God?

EVERYONE:

Only by true faith in Jesus Christ.

Although my conscience accuses me

that I have grievously sinned

against all God’s commandments,

have never kept any of them,

and am still inclined to all evil,

yet God, without any merit of my own,

out of mere grace,

imputes to me the perfect satisfaction,

righteousness, and holiness of Christ.

He grants these to me

as if I had never had nor committed any sin,

and as if I myself had accomplished all the obedience

which Christ has rendered for me,

if only I accept this gift with a believing heart.
