PRELUDE – “Beautiful Eulogy” by Beautiful Eulogy

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Psalm 148

Praise the Lord!

Praise the Lord from the heavens;

praise him in the heights!

Praise him, all his angels;

praise him, all his hosts!

Praise him, sun and moon,

praise him, all you shining stars!

Praise him, you highest heavens,

and you waters above the heavens!

Let them praise the name of the Lord!

For he commanded and they were created.

And he established them forever and ever;

he gave a decree, and it shall not pass away.

Praise the Lord from the earth,

you great sea creatures and all deeps,

fire and hail, snow and mist,

stormy wind fulfilling his word!

Mountains and all hills,

fruit trees and all cedars!

Beasts and all livestock,

creeping things and flying birds!

Kings of the earth and all peoples,

princes and all rulers of the earth!

Young men and maidens together,

old men and children!

Let them praise the name of the Lord,

for his name alone is exalted;

his majesty is above earth and heaven.

He has raised up a horn for his people,

praise for all his saints,

for the people of Israel who are near to him.

Praise the Lord!

PRELUDE – “Have Your Way” by Dietrick Haddon

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Psalm 97

The Lord reigns, let the earth rejoice;

let the many coastlands be glad!

Clouds and thick darkness are all around him;

righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.

Fire goes before him

and burns up his adversaries all around.

His lightnings light up the world;

the earth sees and trembles.

The mountains melt like wax before the Lord,

before the Lord of all the earth.

The heavens proclaim his righteousness,

and all the peoples see his glory.

All worshipers of images are put to shame,

who make their boast in worthless idols;

worship him, all you gods!

Zion hears and is glad,

and the daughters of Judah rejoice,

because of your judgments, O Lord.

For you, O Lord, are most high over all the earth;

you are exalted far above all gods.

O you who love the Lord, hate evil!

He preserves the lives of his saints;

he delivers them from the hand of the wicked.

Light is sown for the righteous,

and joy for the upright in heart.

Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous,

and give thanks to his holy name!

We believe in God the Father Almighty,

Maker of heaven and earth;

EVERYONE:

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 and mind and strength.

We have not loved our neighbors as ourselves.

and direct what we shall be,

so that we may delight in your will and walk in your ways,

to the glory of your holy name.

Through Christ, our Lord. Amen.

The Lord is merciful and gracious,

slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.

He will not always chide,

He does not deal with us according to our sins,

nor repay us according to our iniquities.

For as high as the heavens are above the earth,

so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him;

as far as the east is from the west,

so far does he remove our transgressions from us.

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.

that we may give thanks to your holy name

And let all the people say,

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.

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.”

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.
