PRELUDE – “Hosanna (Praise Is Rising)” by Paul Baloche

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP (Jeff) – Matthew 21:1-11

As they approached Jerusalem

and came to Bethphage on the Mount of Olives,

Jesus sent two disciples, saying to them,

“Go to the village ahead of you,

and at once you will find a donkey tied there,

with her colt by her.

Untie them and bring them to me.

If anyone says anything to you,

tell him that the Lord needs them,

and he will send them right away.”

This took place to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet:

“Say to the Daughter of Zion,

‘See, your king comes to you, gentle and riding on a donkey,

on a colt, the foal of a donkey.’”

The disciples went and did as Jesus had instructed them.

They brought the donkey and the colt,

placed their cloaks on them,

and Jesus sat on them.

A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road,

while others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road.

The crowds that went ahead of him

and those that followed shouted,

“Hosanna to the Son of David!”

“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”

“Hosanna in the highest!”

When Jesus entered Jerusalem,

the whole city was stirred and asked,

“Who is this?”

The crowds answered,

“This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee.”

CONFESSION OF SIN (Sarah) – Isaiah 29:13

These people come near to me with their mouth

and honor me with their lips,

but their hearts are far from me.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Romans 10:9-11

That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,”

and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead,

you will be saved.

For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified,

and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.

As the Scripture says, “Anyone who trusts in him will never be put to shame.”

CONFESSION OF FAITH – The Apostle’s Creed

I 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.

I 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.

Song –

Blessed Assurance” by Fanny Crosby


Our Father in heaven,

hallowed be your name.

Your kingdom come,

Your will be done,

On earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread,

And forgive us our debts,

As we also have forgiven our debtors.

And lead us not into temptation,

But deliver us from evil.

For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory,

Forever and ever. Amen.
