PRELUDE – “Break Every Chain” by Tasha Cobbs

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Exodus 19:16-20

On the morning of the third day there were thunders and lightnings

and a thick cloud on the mountain and a very loud trumpet blast,

so that all the people in the camp trembled.

Then Moses brought the people out of the camp to meet God,

and they took their stand at the foot of the mountain.

Now Mount Sinai was wrapped in smoke

because the Lord had descended on it in fire.

The smoke of it went up like the smoke of a kiln,

and the whole mountain trembled greatly.

And as the sound of the trumpet grew louder and louder,

Moses spoke, and God answered him in thunder.

The Lord came down on Mount Sinai, to the top of the mountain.

And the Lord called Moses to the top of the mountain, and Moses went up.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Galatians 2:16

We know that a person is not justified by works of the law

but through faith in Jesus Christ,

so we also have believed in Christ Jesus,

in order to be justified by faith in Christ and not by works of the law,

because by works of the law no one will be justified.

EVERYONE WHO BELIEVES:

Amen. Praise be to God!

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – 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.

Oh For A Thousand Tongues to Sing” by Carl Gotthelf Glaser, Charles Wesley

CONFESSION OF SIN

EVERYONE:

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 repentant,

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 – Galatians 4:4-7

When the fullness of time had come,

God sent forth his Son,

born of woman,

born under the law,

to redeem those who were under the law,

so that we might receive adoption as sons.

And because you are sons,

God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts,

crying, “Abba! Father!”

So you are no longer a slave, but a son,

and if a son, then an heir through God.
