PRELUDE – “No Other Name” by Freddy Rodriguez

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Psalm 113:1-3

Praise the Lord!

Praise, O servants of the Lord,

praise the name of the Lord!

Blessed be the name of the Lord

from this time forth and forevermore!

From the rising of the sun to its setting,

the name of the Lord is to be praised!

Song –

No Other Name” Doug Engquist, Freddy Rodriguez, Laurie Engquist

CONFESSION OF SIN

CONGREGATION:

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 – Exodus 34:5-8

The Lord descended in the cloud and stood with [Moses] there,

and proclaimed the name of the Lord.

The Lord passed before him and proclaimed,

“The Lord, the Lord, a God merciful and gracious,

slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness,

keeping steadfast love for thousands,

forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin,

but who will by no means clear the guilty,

visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children and the children’s children,

to the third and the fourth generation.”

And Moses quickly bowed his head toward the earth and worshiped.

It is good to give thanks to the Lord, to sing praises to your name, O Most High; to declare your steadfast love in the morning, and your faithfulness by night, to the music of the lute and the harp, to the melody of the lyre. For you, O Lord, have made me glad by your work; at the works of your hands I sing for joy.

POSTLUDE – “I Will Follow” by Jon Guerra

At Table Talk last Sunday Jack and James led a great discussion on “Bridging the Secular Divide.” Here are 5 examples they gave of the ways many non-Christians in the city think and act:

1. All you have is now.

Non-Christians don’t think about what life will be like 10,000 years.

YOLO/Carpe Diem

2. Non-Christians think they are more free than Christians.

Our culture focuses on individualism.

Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness!

3. Jumping on bandwagons

People do what’s popular.

Could be sports, tv shows, movies.

4. Focus on science.

Believing in the Bible is not easy.

5. Non-Christians see us as hypocrites/judgmental.

Let’s reflect on the ministry of Jesus and think how we can be more like him with non-Christians…

PRELUDE – “Kyrie Eleison” by Chris Tomlin

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Ps. 47:6-7

Sing praises to God, sing praises!

Sing praises to our King, sing praises!

For God is the King of all the earth;

sing praises with a psalm!

CONFESSION OF SIN

Song –

Have Mercy on Me” by Dale Bischof and Pat Sczebel

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Titus 3:4-7

When the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared,

he saved us,

not because of works done by us in righteousness,

but according to his own mercy,

by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit,

whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior,

so that being justified by his grace

we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

Song –

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

AFFIRMATION OF FAITH – New Hampshire Confession of Faith Article V

CONGREGATION:

We believe that the great Gospel blessing

which Christ secures to such as believe in Him

is Justification;

that Justification includes the pardon of sin,

and the promise of eternal life on principles of righteousness;

that it is bestowed,

not in consideration of any works of righteousness

which we have done,

but solely through faith in the Redeemer’s blood;

by virtue of which faith His perfect righteousness

is freely imputed to us of God;

that it brings us into a state of most blessed peace

and favor with God,

and secures every other blessing needful

for time and eternity.

On Christ the Solid Rock I Stand” by Edward Mote

POSTLUDE – “We Want To See Jesus Lifted High” by Noel Richards

On the third Sundays of every month there’s a meal after our worship service. Plan to stick around and eat!

This Sunday during the meal Kara will be sharing about her upcoming work in Germany.

After that, there will be a short, optional seminar that you won’t want to miss on “Bridging the Secular Divide.” It’s designed to help us better understand how the unbelievers around us think and act. And we’ll be explaining a new evangelistic focus for our Sunday Morning Prayer Meetings this year.

Check out this book review just published at 9Marks.org. In it Pastor Nathan explains some of the vision for our new Mercy Ministry that John, Sarah K., Lydia, Becky, and Christian are working on.

On earth as it is in heaven.

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.
