WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Psalm 106:1-2

Song –

Great Is Thy Faithfulness” by Thomas Obediah Chisholm and William Marion Runyan

CONFESSION OF SIN – Psalm 106:34-39

They did not destroy the peoples,

as the Lord commanded them,

but they mixed with the nations

and learned to do as they did.

They served their idols,

which became a snare to them.

They sacrificed their sons

and their daughters to the demons;

they poured out innocent blood,

the blood of their sons and daughters,

whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan,

and the land was polluted with blood.

Thus they became unclean by their acts,

and played the whore in their deeds.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Psalm 106:44-45, 46-48

LEADER:

Nevertheless, he looked upon their distress,

when he heard their cry.

For their sake he remembered his covenant,

and relented according to the abundance of his steadfast love.

EVERYONE:

Save us, O Lord our God,

and gather us from among the nations,

that we may give thanks to your holy name

and glory in your praise.

LEADER:

Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel,

from everlasting to everlasting!

And let all the people say,

EVERYONE:

“Amen!”

LEADER:

Praise the Lord!

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Isaiah 40:28-31

Have you not known? Have you not heard?

The Lord is the everlasting God,

the Creator of the ends of the earth.

He does not faint or grow weary;

his understanding is unsearchable.

He gives power to the faint,

and to him who has no might he increases strength.

Even youths shall faint and be weary,

and young men shall fall exhausted;

but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength;

they shall mount up with wings like eagles;

they shall run and not be weary;

they shall walk and not faint.

Song –

Everlasting God” by Brenton Brown and Ken Rile

Ever Be” by Bobby Strand, Chris Greely, Gabriel Wilson, and Kalley Heiligenthal

CONFESSION OF SIN – Isaiah 6:1-5

In the year that King Uzziah died [the prophet Isaiah] saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and the train of his robe filled the temple. Above him stood the seraphim. Each had six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. And one called to another and said: ‘Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory!’ And the foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of him who called, and the house was filled with smoke. And [he] said:

EVERYONE:

Woe is me!

For I am lost;

for I am a man of unclean lips,

and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips;

for my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts!

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Isaiah 6:6-7

Then one of the seraphim flew to [Isaiah],

having in his hand a burning coal that he had taken with tongs from the altar.

And he touched [his] mouth and said:

“Behold, this has touched your lips;

your guilt is taken away,

and your sin atoned for.”

O Praise the Name (Anástasis)” by Benjamin Hastings, Dean Ussher, and Marty Sampson

CONFESSION OF SIN – Philippians 2:2-4

Complete my joy

by being of the same mind,

having the same love,

being in full accord and of one mind.

Do nothing from rivalry or conceit,

but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.

Let each of you look not only to his own interests,

but also to the interests of others.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Ephesians 2:13-16

But now in Christ Jesus

you who were once far off

have been brought near by the blood of Christ.

For he himself is our peace,

who has made us both one

and has broken down in his flesh the dividing wall of hostility

by abolishing the law of commandments and ordinances,

that he might create in himself one new man

in place of the two,

so making peace,

and might reconcile us both to God

in one body through the cross,

thereby killing the hostility.

EVERYONE:

We believe in one God, the Father Almighty,

Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible.

And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God,

begotten of the Father before all worlds;

God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God;

begotten, not made,

being of one substance with the Father,

by whom all things were made.

Who, for us men and our salvation,

came down from heaven,

and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary,

and was made man;

and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate;

He suffered and was buried;

and the third day He rose again, according to the Scriptures;

and ascended into heaven, and sits on the right hand of the Father;

and He shall come again, with glory, to judge the quick and the dead;

whose kingdom shall have no end.

And we believe in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of Life;

who proceeds from the Father and the Son;

who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified;

who spoke by the prophets.

And we believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.

We acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins;

and we look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come.

Amen.

CONFESSION OF SIN

EVERYONE:

Almighty and merciful God,

we have erred and strayed from your ways like lost sheep.

We have followed too much the devices and desires of our own hearts.

We have offended against your holy laws.

We have left undone those things which we ought to have done;

and we have done those things which we ought not to have done.

O Lord, have mercy upon us.

Spare those who confess their faults.

Restore those who are repentant,

according to your promises declared to the world in Christ Jesus, our Lord.

And grant, O merciful God, for his sake,

that we may live a holy, just, and humble life

to the glory of your holy name.

Amen.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – 1 Peter 2:24-25

He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree,

that we might die to sin and live to righteousness.

By his wounds you have been healed.

For you were straying like sheep,

but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.
