PRELUDE

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Psalm 96:1-4

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.

Song –

How Great Thou Art” by Stuart K. Hine

CONFESSION OF SIN – 1 John 1:8

If we say we have no sin,

we deceive ourselves,

and the truth is not in us.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – 1 John 1:9

If we confess our sins,

he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins

and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Song –

Great Is Thy Faithfulness” by Thomas Obediah Chisholm and William Marion Runyan

AFFIRMATION OF FAITH

We 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.

We 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 95:1-2

Song –

Jesus, My Only Hope” by Mark Altrogge

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.

Song –

Have Mercy on Me” by Dale Bischof and Pat Sczebel

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Romans 5:6-10

While we were still weak,

at the right time

Christ died for the ungodly.

For one will scarcely die for a righteous person

though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die—

but God shows his love for us in that

while we were still sinners,

Christ died for us.

Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood,

much more shall we be saved by him

from the wrath of God.

Song –

But God” by Michael Bleecker, Hunter Hall, and Lauren Chandler

PRAYER

THE LORD’S PRAYER

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 forgive our debtors.

And do not lead us into temptation,

But deliver us from the evil one.

For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever.

Amen.

CHILDREN’S BLESSING & DISMISSAL – New City Catechism Q34

Since we are redeemed by grace alone,

through Christ alone,

must we still do good works

and obey God’s Word?

Yes, so that our lives may show love and gratitude to God,

and so that by our godly behavior others may be won to Christ.

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Psalm 97

The Lord reigns, let the earth rejoice; let the many coastlands be glad!

Clouds and thick darkness are all around him;

righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.

Fire goes before him and burns up his adversaries all around.

His lightnings light up the world; the earth sees and trembles.

The mountains melt like wax before the Lord, before the Lord of all the earth.

The heavens proclaim his righteousness and all the peoples see his glory.

All worshipers of images are put to shame, who make their boast in worthless idols;

worship him all you gods!

Zion hears and is glad and the daughters of Judah rejoice, because of your judgments, o Lord.

For you, O Lord, are most high over all the earth;

You are exalted far above all gods.

O you who love the Lord, hate evil!

He preserves the lives of his saints; he delivers them from the hand of the wicked.

Light is sown for the righteous, and joy for the upright in heart.

Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous, and give thanks to his holy name!

Song –

Come Praise and Glorify” by Bob Kauflin and Tim Chester

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Psalm 130:3-4, 7-8

If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities,

O Lord, who could stand?

But with you there is forgiveness,

that you may be feared.

For with the Lord there is steadfast love,

and with him is plentiful redemption.

He will redeem Israel from all his iniquities.

PRAYER

POSTLUDE – “Not Enough” by Dustin Kensrue

Spring Awakening Outreach FlyerThis weekend over 90,000 people will be coming to our back yard for a huge rave called the Spring Awakening Festival!

On Saturday we’re going to open up our doors for an outreach event, seeking to share the gospel with attenders.

It’s supposed to be in the 90s. Water is expensive at the event, but we will be offering free water bottles and air conditioning. John Rood will be there jamming and doing demonstrations of how he makes electronic music.

We need people to come out to pray, be available to talk with guests, and generally help keep an eye on things.

We’ll start gathering at 6:00 PM to do a prayer-walk, asking God to bring an ‘Awakening’ to many of the emptiness and hopelessness of life apart from Christ.

Doors will open at 6:45 PM and close at 10:00 PM.

May many find ‘living water’ this weekend!

If you plan to come, reply with an email.

REMINDER: There’s volleyball this Sunday (6/12) at the field just south of Arrigo Park and just west of Racine at 4:00 PM. Invite friends, roommates, family, neighbors, and/or coworkers!

For more info, contact Rosario.

CONFESSION OF SIN – Jeremiah 5:23-24

This people has a stubborn and rebellious heart;

they have turned aside and gone away.

They do not say in their hearts,

‘Let us fear the Lord our God,

who gives the rain in its season,

the autumn rain and the spring rain,

and keeps for us

the weeks appointed for the harvest.’

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Jeremiah 33:8

I will cleanse them

from all the guilt of their sin against me,

and I will forgive

all the guilt of their sin and rebellion against me.
