PRELUDE –  “O Praise Him” by David Crowder Band

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Psalm 113:1-6

Praise the Lord!

Praise, O servants of the Lord,

praise the name of the Lord!

Blessed be the name of the Lord

from this time forth and forevermore!

From the rising of the sun to its setting,

the name of the Lord is to be praised!

The Lord is high above all nations,

and his glory above the heavens!

Who is like the Lord our God,

who is seated on high,

who looks far down

on the heavens and the earth?

SONG –

Behold, Our God” by Jonathan, Meghan, and Ryan Baird and Mark Altrogge

CONFESSION OF SIN – Romans 1:21-23

For although they knew God,

they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, 

but they became futile in their thinking, 

and their foolish hearts were darkened. 

Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 

and exchanged the glory of the immortal God 

for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things.

In spite of our songs of praise, Christians too often are drawn to praise the things of this world rather than the creator who gave us these good gifts. Let’s take a moment and repent of our foolish fixation on the things of this world and focus our thoughts and heart on the most high God.

[Moment of Silence]

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Psalm 32:1-2

Hear this Assurance of Pardon from Psalm 32:1-2

Blessed is the one whose transgression is forgiven,
    whose sin is covered.
Blessed is the man against whom the Lord counts no iniquity,
    and in whose spirit there is no deceit.
