PRELUDE – “Safe Retreat” by Kings Kaleidoscope

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – (Nicene Creed)

For our sake [Christ] was crucified under Pontius Pilate;
he suffered death and was buried.
On the third day he rose again
in accordance with the Scriptures;
he ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,
and his kingdom will have no end.

CONFESSION OF SIN  – Isa. 6:1-5

In the year that King Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up;

and the train of his robe filled the temple.

Above him stood the seraphim. Each had six wings: with two he covered his face,

and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew.

 And one called to another and said:

“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts;
the whole earth is full of his glory!”

And the foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of him who called,

and the house was filled with smoke.

And I said: “Woe is me! For I am lost; for I am a man of unclean lips,

and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips;

for my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts!”

In light of the vision of God’s holy splendor it is only right for us reflect upon our sin and repent

[silent space to engage with God…]

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Hear this assurance of pardon from Isaiah 6:6-7

Then one of the seraphim flew to me,

having in his hand a burning coal that he had taken with tongs from the altar.

And he touched my mouth and said:

“Behold, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away, and your sin atoned for.”
