PRELUDE – 

“Worthy” by Beautiful Eulogy

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Isaiah 55:1-2

Come, everyone who thirsts,

    come to the waters;

and he who has no money,

    come, buy and eat!

Come, buy wine and milk

    without money and without price.

Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread,

    and your labor for that which does not satisfy?

Listen diligently to me, and eat what is good,

    and delight yourselves in rich food.

SONG –

Speak, O Lord” by Keith Getty and Stuart Townend

CONFESSION OF SIN – Matthew 25:42-45

I was hungry and you gave me no food, 

I was thirsty and you gave me no drink, 

I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, 

naked and you did not clothe me, 

sick and in prison and you did not visit me.’ 

Then they also will answer, saying, 

‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty 

or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, 

and did not minister to you?’

Then he will answer them, saying, 

‘Truly, I say to you, as you did not do it to one of the least of these, 

you did not do it to me.’

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – 2 Corinthians 8:9

For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, 

that though he was rich, 

yet for your sake he became poor, 

so that you by his poverty might become rich.

(please stand for the reading of God’s Word and respond with, “Thanks be to God”)

15 You are aware that all who are in Asia turned away from me, among whom are Phygelus and Hermogenes. 16 May the Lord grant mercy to the household of Onesiphorus, for he often refreshed me and was not ashamed of my chains, 17 but when he arrived in Rome he searched for me earnestly and found me— 18 may the Lord grant him to find mercy from the Lord on that day!—and you well know all the service he rendered at Ephesus.
