PRELUDE – “Brethren We Have Met To Worship” by Bart Millard

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Philippians 2:5-11

Christ Jesus,

though he was in the form of God,

did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped,

but emptied himself,

by taking the form of a servant,

being born in the likeness of men.

And being found in human form,

he humbled himself

by becoming obedient to the point of death,

even death on a cross.

Therefore God has highly exalted him

and bestowed on him the name that is above every name,

so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,

in heaven and on earth and under the earth,

and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,

to the glory of God the Father.

Song –

No Other Name” by Doug Engquist, Freddy Rodriguez, Laurie Engquist

CONFESSION OF SIN –

CONGREGATION:

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 and mind and strength.

We have not loved our neighbors as ourselves.

In your mercy forgive what we have been,

help us amend what we are,

and direct what we shall be,

so that we may delight in your will

and walk in your ways,

to the glory of your holy name.

Through Christ, our Lord.

Amen.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Colossians 1:21-22

You,

who once were alienated and hostile in mind,

doing evil deeds,

he has now reconciled in his body of flesh

by his death,

in order to present you holy

and blameless

and above reproach before him.

“Behold your God!”

Song –

Behold, Our God” by Baird and Altrogge

CONFESSION OF SIN – Psalm 90:1-8

CONGREGATION:

Lord, you have been our dwelling place

in all generations.

Before the mountains were brought forth,

or ever you had formed the earth and the world,

from everlasting to everlasting you are God.

You return man to dust

and say, “Return, O children of man!”

For a thousand years in your sight

are but as yesterday when it is past,

or as a watch in the night.

You sweep them away as with a flood; they are like a dream,

like grass that is renewed in the morning:

in the morning it flourishes and is renewed;

in the evening it fades and withers.

For we are brought to an end by your anger;

by your wrath we are dismayed.

You have set our iniquities before you,

our secret sins in the light of your presence.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – 1 John 1:9,8

If we confess our sins,

he is faithful and just

and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Matthew 28:1-9

Now after the Sabbath,

toward the dawn of the first day of the week,

Mary Magdalene and the other Mary

went to see the tomb.

And behold, there was a great earthquake,

for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven

and came and rolled back the stone and sat on it.

His appearance was like lightning,

and his clothing white as snow.

And for fear of him the guards trembled

and became like dead men.

But the angel said to the women,

“Do not be afraid,

for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified.

He is not here, for he has risen, as he said.

Come, see the place where he lay.

Then go quickly and tell his disciples

that he has risen from the dead,

and behold, he is going before you to Galilee;

there you will see him.

See, I have told you.”

So they departed quickly from the tomb

with fear and great joy,

and ran to tell his disciples.

And behold, Jesus met them and said, “Greetings!”

And they came up and took hold of his feet

and worshiped him.

Crown Him With Many Crowns” by Elvey, Thring, and Bridges
