PRELUDE – “Grace Alone” by Dustin Kensrue

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Psalm 95:1-3

Oh come, let us sing to the Lord;

let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!

Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving;

let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!

For the Lord is a great God,

and a great King above all gods.

Song –

Come Praise and Glorify” by Bob Kauflin and Tim Chester

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

PRAYER

THE LORD’S PRAYER

EVERYONE:

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 lead us not into temptation,

But deliver us from evil.

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

Amen.

CHILDREN’S BLESSING & DISMISSAL – New City Catechism Q52

What hope does everlasting life hold for us?

That we will live with

and enjoy God forever

in the new heaven

and the new earth,

where we will be freed from all sin

in a renewed, restored creation.

the name of the Lord is to be praised!

Song –

CONFESSION OF SIN – Amos 5:21-24

“I hate, I despise your feasts,

and I take no delight in your solemn assemblies.

Even though you offer me your burnt offerings and grain offerings,

I will not accept them;

and the peace offerings of your fattened animals,

I will not look upon them.

Take away from me the noise of your songs;

to the melody of your harps I will not listen.

But let justice roll down like waters,

and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.”

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Psalm 130:3-4

If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities,

O Lord, who could stand?

But with you there is forgiveness,

that you may be feared.

Song –

You Alone Can Rescue” by Matt Redman

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.

PRAYER
