WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Isaiah 25:6-9

On this mountain the Lord of hosts will make for all peoples

a feast of rich food, a feast of well-aged wine,

of rich food full of marrow, of aged wine well refined.

And he will swallow up on this mountain

the covering that is cast over all peoples,

the veil that is spread over all nations.

He will swallow up death forever;

and the Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces,

and the reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth,

for the Lord has spoken.

It will be said on that day,

“Behold, this is our God; we have waited for him, that he might save us.

This is the Lord; we have waited for him;

let us be glad and rejoice in his salvation.”

CONFESSION OF SIN – Galatians 5:19-23

Now the works of the flesh are evident:

sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these.

But the fruit of the Spirit is

love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.

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.

Song –

No Longer Slaves” by Brian Johnson, Joel Case, and Jonathan David Helser

And lead us not into temptation,

But deliver us from evil.

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

Amen.

But let justice roll down like waters,

and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.”

AFFIRMATION OF FAITH – The Apostle’s Creed

EVERYONE:

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.

The third day he rose again from the dead.

He ascended into heaven,

and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;

from there he will 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.
