PRELUDE – 

After All (Holy)” by David Crowder

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – (Psalm 66:1-4)

Shout for joy to God, all the earth;

    sing the glory of his name;

    give to him glorious praise!

Say to God, “How awesome are your deeds!

    So great is your power that your enemies come cringing to you.

All the earth worships you

    and sings praises to you;

    they sing praises to your name.” 

Let’s stand and sing praises to our glorious God!

SONG –

Come Praise and Glorify” by Bob Kauflin and Tim Chester

CONFESSION OF SIN –  (Romans 1:28-32)

In Romans 1, Paul describes what happens to those who seek to suppress their knowledge of God in order to reject his rule over their lives. Paul writes, 

And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, 

God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. 

They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. 

They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness.

 They are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 

Though they know God’s righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.

Since it is so easy for us to ignore God when he is inconvenient for us, let’s take some time to repent of our rebellion against him and acknowledge God as the true king over our lives.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – (Romans 10:9-11,13)

Hear this assurance of pardon from Rom. 10:9-11,13.

 [I]f you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord

 and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, 

you will be saved. 

For with the heart one believes and is justified, 

and with the mouth one confesses and is saved. 

For the Scripture says, “Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame.” 

For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

Come Behold the Wondrous Mystery” by Matt Boswell, Matt Papa, and Michael Bleecker

PRAYER Be seated for prayer.

AFFIRMATION OF FAITH — Week 31 (From the New City Catechism Quoting the Apostles’ Creed)

Q. What do we believe by true faith?

A. We 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 Spirit, 

born of the virgin Mary, 

suffered under Pontius Pilate, 

was crucified, died, and was buried.  

He descended into hell.  

The third day he rose again from the dead.  

He ascended into heaven, 

and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; 

from there he will come to judge the living and the dead.  

We believe in the Holy Spirit, 

the holy catholic church, 

the communion of saints, 

the forgiveness of sins, 

the resurrection of the body, 

and the life everlasting.
