PRELUDE – “Romans 16” by Streetlights Bible

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Revelation 5:11-14

Then I looked,

and I heard around the throne and the living creatures and the elders

the voice of many angels,

numbering myriads of myriads and thousands of thousands,

saying with a loud voice,

“Worthy is the Lamb who was slain,

to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might

and honor and glory and blessing!”

And I heard every creature in heaven

and on earth and under the earth and in the sea,

and all that is in them, saying,

“To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb

be blessing and honor and glory and might forever and ever!”

And the four living creatures said, “Amen!”

and the elders fell down and worshiped.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Colossians 2:15

You, who were dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh,

God made alive together with [Christ],

having forgiven us all our trespasses,

by canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands.

This he set aside, nailing it to the cross.

He disarmed the rulers and authorities and put them to open shame,

by triumphing over them in him.

Song –

Christ is Risen” by Matt Maher

AFFIRMATION OF FAITH – The Apostle’s Creed

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, died, and was 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.

Amen.
