PRELUDE

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Psalm 99

The LORD reigns, let the nations tremble;

he sits enthroned between the cherubim, let the earth shake.

Great is the LORD in Zion; he is exalted over all the nations.

Let them praise your great and awesome name – he is holy.

The King is mighty, he loves justice – you have established equity

in Jacob you have done what is just and right.

Exalt the LORD our God and worship at his footstool; he is holy.

Moses and Aaron were among his priests,

Samuel was among those who called on his name;

they called on the LORD and he answered them.

He spoke to them from the pillar of cloud;

they kept his statutes and the decrees he gave them.

O LORD our God, you answered them;

you were to Israel a forgiving God, though you punished their misdeeds.

Exalt the LORD our God and worship at his holy mountain,

for the LORD our God is holy.

Songs –

Holy, Holy, Holy” by John Bacchus Dykes and Reginald Heber

CONFESSION OF SIN – Psalm 32:3-5

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 sapped as in the heat of summer.

Then I acknowledged my sin to you and did not cover up my iniquity.

I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the LORD” – and you forgave the guilt of my sin.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Psalm 32:1-2

Blessed is he whose transgressions are forgiven,

whose sins are covered.

Blessed is the man whose sin the LORD does not count against him

and in whose spirit is no deceit.

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

PRELUDE – “You Are Good” by Israel Houghton

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Psalm 63:1-4

“O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you; my flesh faints for you, as in a dry and weary land where there is no water. So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary, beholding your power and glory. Because your steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise you. So I will bless you as long as I live; in your name I will lift up my hands.”

Song –

Come Praise and Glorify” by Bob Kauflin and Tim Chester

CONFESSION OF SIN –

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 –

“While it is true that we have sinned, it is a greater truth that we are forgiven through God’s love in Jesus Christ. To all who humbly seek the mercy of God, in Jesus Christ your sin is forgiven.”

PRELUDE – “Beautiful One” by Tim Hughes

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

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.

Here I Am to Worship” by Tim Hughes

Your Great Name” by Krissy Nordhoff and Michael Neale

AFFIRMATION 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.

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Psalm 149:1-4

Praise the LORD.

Sing to the LORD a new song,

his praise in the assembly of the saints.

Let Israel rejoice in their Maker;

let the people of Zion be glad in their King.

Let them praise his name with dancing

and make music to him with tambourine and harp.

For the LORD takes delight in his people;

he crowns the humble with salvation.

Song –

Oh For A Thousand Tongues to Sing” by Carl Gotthelf Glaser, Charles Wesley, David Crowder, Jack Parker

CONFESSION OF SIN – James 3:2, 5-12

We all stumble in many ways.

If anyone is never at fault in what he says, he is a perfect man,

able to keep his whole body in check.

The tongue is a small part of the body,

but it makes great boasts.

Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark.

The tongue also is a fire,

a world of evil among the parts of the body.

It corrupts the whole person,

sets the whole course of his life on fire,

and is itself set on fire by hell.

All kinds of animals, birds, reptiles and creatures of the sea

are being tamed and have been tamed by man,

but no man can tame the tongue.

It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison.

With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father,

and with it we curse men,

who have been made in God’s likeness

Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing.

My brothers, this should not be.

Can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring?

My brothers, can a fig tree bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs?

Neither can a salt spring produce fresh water.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – 1 John 1:9 and Isaiah 6:7

If we confess our sins,

he is faithful and just

and will forgive us our sins

and purify us from all unrighteousness.

See, your guilt is taken away and your sin atoned for.
