Immortal Invisible God Only Wise” by Walter Chalmers Smith

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Psalm 24:7-10

Lift up your heads, O gates!

    And be lifted up, O ancient doors,

    that the King of glory may come in.

Who is this King of glory?

    The Lord, strong and mighty,

    the Lord, mighty in battle!

Lift up your heads, O gates!

    And lift them up, O ancient doors,

    that the King of glory may come in.

Who is this King of glory?

    The Lord of hosts,

    he is the King of glory! 

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 14:61-64

“Again the high priest asked him, ‘Are you the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?’

And Jesus said, ‘I am,

and you will see the Son of Man seated at the right hand of Power, 

and coming with the clouds of heaven.’ 

And the high priest tore his garments and said, 

‘What further witnesses do we need? 

You have heard his blasphemy. What is your decision?’ 

And they all condemned him as deserving death.” 

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Ephesians 2:4-8

“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.”

AFFIRMATION OF FAITH – Apostle’s Creed

(everyone read aloud)

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, dead, and buried.

He descended into hell*

and on 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 thence he shall 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.

Amen.

* Meaning place of the dead

** Meaning universal

SONG – 

Sing to the King” by Billy Foote

SCRIPTURE READING – Psalm 47

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

Clap your hands, all peoples!

    Shout to God with loud songs of joy!

For the Lord, the Most High, is to be feared,

    a great king over all the earth.

He subdued peoples under us,

    and nations under our feet.

He chose our heritage for us,

    the pride of Jacob whom he loves. Selah

God has gone up with a shout,

    the Lord with the sound of a trumpet.

Sing praises to God, sing praises!

    Sing praises to our King, sing praises!

For God is the King of all the earth;

    sing praises with a psalm!

God reigns over the nations;

    God sits on his holy throne.

The princes of the peoples gather

    as the people of the God of Abraham.

For the shields of the earth belong to God;

    he is highly exalted!

SERMON – “Shout To God!”
