PRELUDE “Everything Glorious” by David Crowder Band

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP (Danny) – (Psalm 36:7-9)

How precious is your steadfast love, O God!
The children of mankind take refuge in the shadow of your wings.
 They feast on the abundance of your house,
and you give them drink from the river of your delights.
For with you is the fountain of life;
in your light do we see light.

Song –

All Praise to Him” by Bob Kauflin and Matt Merker

CONFESSION OF SIN (Danny) – John 3:19-21

 And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world,

and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil.

 For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light,

lest his works should be exposed.

But whoever does what is true comes to the light,

so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God.”

Since the light of Christ has come into our world, let us no longer walk in darkness. Let’s take some time to repent of our sins and return to true fellowship with the Lord.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON (Diana) – Hear this Assurance of Pardon from Romans 6:1-4

What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound?

 By no means! How can we who died to sin still live in it?

Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus

were baptized into his death?

We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death,

 in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father,

we too might walk in newness of life.
