PRELUDE – “Savior Like a Shepherd Lead Us” by Dorothy Ann Thrupp and William Batchelder Bradbury

Song –

Come, Let Us Worship” by Maranatha

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Psalm 95:1-7a

Come, let us sing for joy to the LORD;

let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.

Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song.

For the LORD is the great God,

the great King above all gods.

In his hand are the depths of the earth,

and the mountain peaks belong to him.

The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land.

Come, let us bow down in worship,

let us kneel before the LORD our Maker;

for he is our God and we are the people of his pasture,

the flock under his care.

CONFESSION OF SIN – Psalm 95:7b-11

Today, if you hear his voice,

do not harden your hearts as you did at Meribah,

as you did that day at Massah in the desert,

where your fathers tested and tried me,

though they had seen what I did.

For forty years I was angry with that generation;

I said, “They are a people whose hearts go astray,

and they have not known my ways.”

So I declared on oath in my anger,

“They shall never enter my rest.”

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 – John 10:11

I am the good shepherd.

The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.

We Fall Down” by Chris Tomlin

Wonderful, Merciful, Savior” by Dawn Rogers and Eric Wyse

AFFIRMATION OF FAITH – Psalm 23

The LORD is my shepherd,

I shall not be in want.

He makes me lie down in green pastures,

he leads me beside quiet waters,

he restores my soul.

He guides me in paths of righteousness

for his name’s sake.

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,

I will fear no evil,

for you are with me;

your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me

in the presence of my enemies.

You anoint my head with oil;

my cup overflows.

Surely goodness and love will follow me

all the days of my life,

and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
