PRELUDE – “I Asked the Lord” by John Newton and Indelible Grace

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Psalm 96:1-6

Sing to the LORD a new song;

sing to the LORD, all the earth.

Sing to the LORD, praise his name;

proclaim his salvation day after day.

Declare his glory among the nations,

his marvelous deeds among all peoples.

For great is the LORD and most worthy of praise;

he is to be feared above all gods.

For all the gods of the nations are idols,

but the LORD made the heavens.

Splendor and majesty are before him;

strength and glory are in his sanctuary.

Song –

Come Praise and Glorify” by Bob Kauflin and Tim Chester

CONFESSION OF SIN – John 1:5b-8

God is light; in him there in no darkness at all.

If we claim to have fellowship with him yet walk in the darkness,

we lie and do not live by the truth.

But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light,

we have fellowship with one another,

and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.

If we claim to be without sin,

we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us.

Most holy and merciful Father,

We confess to you and to one another,

that we have sinned against you 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 fully loved our neighbors as ourselves.

We have not always had in us the mind of Christ.

You alone know how often we have grieved you by wasting your gifts,

by wandering from your ways.

Forgive us, we pray you, most merciful Father;

And free us from our sin.

Renew in us the grace and strength of your Holy Spirit,

for the sake of Jesus Christ your Son our Savior. Amen.

Song –

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

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – 1 John 1:9

If we confess our sins,

and purify us from all unrighteousness.
