PRELUDE –

All I Need” by Shawn McDonald

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Psalm 18:2-3

In spite of the storms of life seeking to blow us off course, the Psalmist states:

The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer,

    my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge,

    my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.

I call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised,

    and I am saved from my enemies.

Let’s stand and call upon the Lord our refuge who is worthy to be praised.

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

CONFESSION OF SIN –

EVERYONE

God of love,

it is your will that we should love you with heart, soul, mind, strength,

 and our neighbor as ourselves,

but we are not sufficient for these things.

We confess that our affections continually turn away from you:

from purity to lust, from freedom to slavery,

from compassion to indifference, from fullness to emptiness.

Have mercy on us.

Order our lives by your holy Word,

and make your commandments the joy of our hearts.

Conform us to the image of your loving Son, Jesus,

 that we may shine before the world to your glory.

Amen.

AFFIRMATION OF FAITH – New Hampshire Confession of Faith Article 1

EVERYONE:

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.

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Ps. 95:1-2

The Psalmist commands the people of God to worship stating:

Come, let us sing for joy to the LORD

Let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.

Let us come before him with thanksgiving

And extol him with music and song.

Let’s stand together and sing to the LORD, the Rock of our salvation.

Indescribable” by Jesse Reeves and Laura Story

CONFESSION OF SIN – Isaiah 55:6-7

Seek the LORD while he may be found, call on him while he is near;

let the wicked forsake his way and the evil man his thoughts.

Let him turn to the LORD, and he will have mercy on him,

and to our God, for he will freely pardon.

The LORD our God sees the depths of our sin and the secrets of our hearts.

But in God’s mercy and love, he calls us to repent of our sins and return to him.

Let’s take some time to reflect and pray in silence.

Let’s repent of our sins and return to the LORD our God.

[Moment of Silence]

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Psalm 103:12-13

Now hear this assurance of pardon from Psalm 103:12-13

…as far as the east is from the west,

    so far does [our God] remove our transgressions from us.

As a father shows compassion to his children,

    so the Lord shows compassion to those who fear him.

Psalm 150 (Praise the Lord)” by Matt Boswell and Matt Papa

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Revelation 5:13-14

In his vision of the exalted Christ, the apostle John hears all creatures in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea saying,

Let’s join in the chorus of all creation and declare the glory of Christ 

the Lamb enthroned forever. 

SONG –

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

CONFESSION OF SIN –

While all Christians openly declare God’s glory with our voice,  we must admit that so often we deny him glory in our hearts and actions. Let’s take some time to confess our sins to the Lord, and ask for his forgiveness when we fail to give him the full glory due to his name. Read with me the words of this confession:

EVERYONE:

God of love, it is your will that we should love you with heart, soul, mind, strength,

 and our neighbor as ourselves, but we are not sufficient for these things.

We confess that our affections continually turn away from you: 

from purity to lust, from freedom to slavery, 

from compassion to indifference, from fullness to emptiness. 

Have mercy on us. Order our lives by your holy Word, 

and make your commandments the joy of our hearts. 

Conform us to the image of your loving Son, Jesus, 

that we may shine before the world to your glory. 

Amen.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Ephesians 2:4-10

But God, being rich in mercy,

because of the great love with which he loved us,  

even when we were dead in our trespasses,  

made us alive together with Christ

—by grace you have been saved—

and raised us up with him 

and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,  

so that in the coming ages 

he might show the immeasurable riches 

of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. 

For by grace you have been saved through faith. 

And this is not your own doing; 

it is the gift of God, 

not a result of works, 

so that no one may boast.

Oh For A Thousand Tongues to Sing” by Carl Gotthelf Glaser, and Charles Wesley
