PRELUDE – “Let Everything That Has Breath” by Matt Redman

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Psalm 9:1-2

I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart;
    I will recount all of your wonderful deeds.
I will be glad and exult in you;
    I will sing praise to your name, O Most High.

Let’s stand and recount the Lord’s goodness together in our worship. 

SONG –

Speak, O Lord” by Keith Getty and Stuart Townend

CONFESSION OF SIN – Matthew 6:30-33

But if God so clothes the grass of the field, 

which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, 

will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 

Therefore do not be anxious, saying, 

‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 

For the Gentiles seek after all these things, 

and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. 

But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, 

and all these things will be added to you.

Let’s take a moment and repent for the ways we fall into anxiety and do not trust our Heavenly Father to provide for his children. 

ASSURANCE OF PARDON –1 Thessalonians 5:9-10

For God has not destined us for wrath,

but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ,

who died for us so that whether we are awake or asleep we might live with him.

PRELUDE – “Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silent” by Ralph Vaughan Williams

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Deut. 32:10-12

(The Lord) found him in a desert land,
    and in the howling waste of the wilderness;
he encircled him, he cared for him,
    he kept him as the apple of his eye.
Like an eagle that stirs up its nest,
    that flutters over its young,
spreading out its wings, catching them,
    bearing them on its pinions,
the Lord alone guided him,
    no foreign god was with him.

SONG –

Great Is Thy Faithfulness” by Thomas Obediah Chisholm and William Marion Runyan

CONFESSION OF SIN – Neh. 9:17-21

But you are a God ready to forgive, gracious and merciful, 

slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love, and did not forsake them. 

Even when they had made for themselves a golden calf and said, 

‘This is your God who brought you up out of Egypt,’ 

and had committed great blasphemies, 

you in your great mercies did not forsake them in the wilderness. 

The pillar of cloud to lead them in the way did not depart from them by day, 

nor the pillar of fire by night to light for them the way by which they should go.  

You gave your good Spirit to instruct them 

and did not withhold your manna from their mouth 

and gave them water for their thirst.

Forty years you sustained them in the wilderness, and they lacked nothing. 

Their clothes did not wear out and their feet did not swell.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON –Roman 5:8

But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, 

much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God.

Unchanging” by Chris Tomlin

CONFESSION OF SIN – Psalm 79:8-9

EVERYONE:

Do not remember against us our former iniquities;

let your compassion come speedily to meet us,

for we are brought very low.

Help us, O God of our salvation,

for the glory of your name;

deliver us, and atone for our sins,

for your name’s sake!

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – 1 John 4:10 (NIV)

This is love:

not that we loved God,

but that he loved us

and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Heb. 4:14-16

Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, 

Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. 

For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, 

but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. 

Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, 

that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

 “Blessed Be Your Name” by Matt Redman

CONFESSION OF SIN – 

Let’s confess our sins together using this prayer. Please read the bolded verses aloud.

Minister: Blessed Jesus,
you offered us all your blessings when you announced
Blessed are the poor in spirit
People: but we have been rich in pride.
Minister: Blessed are those who mourn
People: but we have not known much sorrow for our sin.
Minister: Blessed are the meek
People: but we are a stiff-necked people.
Minister: Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness
People: but we are filled to the full with other things.
Minister: Blessed are the merciful”
People: but we are harsh and impatient.
Minister: Blessed are the pure in heart
People: but we have impure hearts.
Minister: Blessed are the peacemakers
People: but we have not sought reconciliation.
Minister: Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness
People: but our lives do not challenge the world.
Minister: Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you
and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me
People: but we have hardly made it known that we are yours.
Minister: Your Law is holy and your benedictions are perfect,
but they are both too great for us.
You alone are blessed.
People: We plead with you to forgive our sins
and give us the blessing of your righteousness.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Psalm 103:8-12

The Lord is merciful and gracious,
    slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
He will not always chide,
    nor will he keep his anger forever.
He does not deal with us according to our sins,
    nor repay us according to our iniquities.
For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
    so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him;
as far as the east is from the west,
    so far does he remove our transgressions from us.

Affirmation of Faith —Article 1 of the New Hampshire Confession of Faith

Let’s confess our common faith together using first article of the New Hampshire Confession of Faith.

I. Of the Scriptures
We believe that the Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired, and is a perfect treasure of heavenly instruction; that it has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth without any mixture of error for its matter, that it reveals the principles by which God will judge us; and therefore is, and shall remain to the end of the world, the true center of Christian union , and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and opinions should be tried.

SCRIPTURE READING – Zechariah 1:1-6 Please stand for the reading of God’s Word. Please respond with, “Thanks be to God.”
