PRELUDE – “Upon a Life (feat. Sandra McCracken)” by Indelible Grace

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – 1 Corinthians 1:18-31

The word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing,

but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.

For it is written,

“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise,

and the discernment of the discerning I will thwart.”

Where is the one who is wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age?

Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?

For since, in the wisdom of God, the world did not know God through wisdom,

it pleased God through the folly of what we preach to save those who believe.

For Jews demand signs and Greeks seek wisdom,

but we preach Christ crucified,

a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles,

but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks,

Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.

For the foolishness of God is wiser than men,

and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

For consider your calling, brothers:

not many of you were wise according to worldly standards,

not many were powerful, not many were of noble birth.

But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise;

God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong;

God chose what is low and despised in the world,

even things that are not, to bring to nothing things that are,

so that no human being might boast in the presence of God.

And because of him you are in Christ Jesus,

who became to us wisdom from God, righteousness and sanctification and redemption,

so that, as it is written,

“Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.”

Song –

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

CONFESSION OF SIN

EVERYONE:

Most merciful God,
we confess that we have sinned against You
in thought, word, and deed,
by what we have done,
and by what we have left undone.
We have not loved You with our whole heart;
we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves.
We are truly sorry and we humbly repent.
For the sake of Your Son Jesus Christ,
have mercy on us and forgive us;
that we may delight in Your will,
and walk in Your ways,
to the glory of Your Name. Amen.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – 2 Corinthians 5:21

For our sake God made Christ to be sin who knew no sin,

so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

LEADER:

How are you righteous before God?

EVERYONE:

Only by true faith in Jesus Christ.

Although my conscience accuses me

that I have grievously sinned

against all God’s commandments,

have never kept any of them,

and am still inclined to all evil,

yet God, without any merit of my own,

out of mere grace,

imputes to me the perfect satisfaction,

righteousness, and holiness of Christ.

He grants these to me

as if I had never had nor committed any sin,

and as if I myself had accomplished all the obedience

which Christ has rendered for me,

if only I accept this gift with a believing heart.

AFFIRMATION OF FAITH – New Hampshire Confession of Faith (1833), Article 9, “Of God’s Purpose Of Grace”

We believe that Election is the eternal purpose of God,

according to which He graciously regenerates, sanctifies, and saves sinners;

that being perfectly consistent with the free agency of man,

it comprehends all the means in connection with the end;

that it is a most glorious display of God’s sovereign goodness,

being infinitely free, wise, holy and unchangeable;

that it utterly excludes boasting,

and promotes humility, love, prayer, praise, trust in God,

and active imitation of his free mercy;

that it encourages the use of means in the highest degree;

that it may be ascertained by its effects in all who truly believe the Gospel;

that it is the foundation of Christian assurance;

and that to ascertain it with regard to ourselves

demands and deserves the utmost diligence.

CONFESSION OF SIN – Matthew 3:5-10

Jerusalem and all Judea and all the region about the Jordan were going out to [John the Baptist]and they were baptized by him in the river Jordan, confessing their sins. But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to his baptism, he said to them, “You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come? Bear fruit in keeping with repentance. And do not presume to say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our father,’ for I tell you, God is able from these stones to raise up children for Abraham. Even now the axe is laid to the root of the trees. Every tree therefore that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – John 6:37-40

All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never cast out. For I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will but the will of him who sent me. And this is the will of him who sent me, that I should lose nothing of all that he has given me, but raise it up on the last day. For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who looks on the Son and believes in him should have eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day.”

Now after the Sabbath, toward the dawn of the first day of the week,

Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the tomb.

And behold, there was a great earthquake,

for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven

and came and rolled back the stone and sat on it.

His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing white as snow.

And for fear of him the guards trembled and became like dead men.

But the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid,

for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified.

He is not here, for he has risen, as he said.

Come, see the place where he lay.

Then go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead,

and behold, he is going before you to Galilee; there you will see him.

See, I have told you.”

So they departed quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy,

and ran to tell his disciples.

And behold, Jesus met them and said, “Greetings!”

And they came up and took hold of his feet and worshiped him.

we have turned—every one—to his own way;

and the Lord has laid on him

the iniquity of us all.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – 1 Corinthians 15:17, 3-4

If Christ has not been raised,

your faith is futile and you are still in your sins.

Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures,

that he was buried,

was crucified, dead, and 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,
