WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Isaiah 61:10

I will greatly rejoice in the Lord;
    my soul shall exult in my God,
for he has clothed me with the garments of salvation;
    he has covered me with the robe of righteousness

Let’s stand and worship the Lord

SONG –

All Creatures of Our God and King” by Jonathan Baird, Ryan Baird, St. Francis of Assisi, and William Henry Draper

CONFESSION OF SIN – Mark 1:14-15

Now after John was arrested, Jesus came into Galilee, 

proclaiming the gospel of God,  and saying, 

“The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand;

 repent and believe in the gospel.”

With the arrival of Jesus the promised king, all people are now exhorted to repent of their sinful ways and turn to trust in Christ for their sole hope of salvation.

Let’s take a moment to repent of our own sins fully entrusting ourselves to Christ alone. 

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – 1 Corinthians 6:11

But you were washed, 

you were sanctified, 

you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ 

and by the Spirit of our God.

AFFIRMATION OF FAITH—Apostles Creed

I 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 Ghost, 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 sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints; 

the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting. 

Amen.
