PRELUDE – “Trinity Song (feat. All Sons & Daughters)” by Sandra McCracken

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Hebrews 3:7-15

Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says,

“Today, if you hear his voice,

do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion,

on the day of testing in the wilderness,

where your fathers put me to the test

and saw my works for forty years.

Therefore I was provoked with that generation,

and said, ‘They always go astray in their heart;

they have not known my ways.’

As I swore in my wrath,

‘They shall not enter my rest.’”

Take care, brothers,

lest there be in any of you an evil, unbelieving heart,

leading you to fall away from the living God.

But exhort one another every day,

as long as it is called “today,”

that none of you may be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin.

For we have come to share in Christ,

if indeed we hold our original confidence firm to the end.

As it is said,

“Today, if you hear his voice,

do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.”

Song –

All Praise to Him” by Bob Kauflin and Matt Merker

CONFESSION OF SIN –

EVERYONE:

Gracious God,

we confess that we have longed too much for the comforts of this world.

We have loved the gifts more than the Giver.

In your mercy, help us to see that all the things we pine for are shadows,

but you are substance;

that they are quicksands,

but you are a mountain;

that they are shifting,

but you are an anchor.

We plead your forgiveness on the merits of Jesus Christ.

Accept his worthiness for our unworthiness,

his sinlessness for our transgressions,

his fullness for our emptiness,

his glory for our shame,

his righteousness for our dead works,

his death for our life.

We pray in Jesus name. Amen.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Ezekiel 36:25-27

You shall be clean from all your uncleannesses,

and from all your idols I will cleanse you.

And I will give you a new heart,

and a new spirit I will put within you.

And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh

and give you a heart of flesh.

And I will put my Spirit within you,

and cause you to walk in my statutes

and be careful to obey my rules.

EVERYONE:

We believe in God the Father Almighty,

Maker of heaven and earth;

who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,

born of the virgin Mary,

suffered under Pontius Pilate,

was crucified, died, and was 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,

the resurrection of the body,

and the life everlasting.

Amen.

Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth!

his steadfast love endures forever,

Praise to the Lord, the Almighty” by Joachim Neander

CONFESSION OF SIN – Isaiah 1:11-17

What to me is the multitude of your sacrifices? says the Lord;

I have had enough of burnt offerings of rams

and the fat of well-fed beasts;

I do not delight in the blood of bulls,

or of lambs, or of goats.

When you come to appear before me,

who has required of you

this trampling of my courts?

Bring no more vain offerings;

incense is an abomination to me.

New moon and Sabbath and the calling of convocations –

I cannot endure iniquity and solemn assembly.

Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hates;

they have become a burden to me;

I am weary of bearing them.

When you spread out your hands,

I will hide my eyes from you;

even though you make many prayers,

I will not listen;

your hands are full of blood.

Wash yourselves; make yourselves clean;

remove the evil of your deeds from before my eyes;

cease to do evil, learn to do good;

seek justice, correct oppression;

bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow’s cause.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Isaiah 1:18

Come now, let us reason together, says the LORD;

though your sins are like scarlet,

they shall be as white as snow;

though they are red like crimson,

they shall become like wool.

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Psalm 63:1-4

O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you;

my soul thirsts for you;

my flesh faints for you,

as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.

So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary,

beholding your power and glory.

Because your steadfast love is better than life,

my lips will praise you.

So I will bless you as long as I live;

in your name I will lift up my hands.

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Psalm 65:1-8

Praise is due to you, O God, in Zion,

and to you shall vows be performed.

O you who hear prayer,

to you shall all flesh come.

When iniquities prevail against me,

you atone for our transgressions.

Blessed is the one you choose and bring near,

to dwell in your courts!

We shall be satisfied with the goodness of your house,

the holiness of your temple!

By awesome deeds you answer us with righteousness,

O God of our salvation,

the hope of all the ends of the earth

and of the farthest seas;

the one who by his strength established the mountains,

being girded with might;

who stills the roaring of the seas,

the roaring of their waves,

the tumult of the peoples,

so that those who dwell at the ends of the earth are in awe at your signs.

You make the going out of the morning and the evening to shout for joy.

Lord I Need You” by Christy Nockels, Daniel Carson, Jesse Reeves, Kristian Stanfill, and Matt Maher

AFFIRMATION OF FAITH – New Hampshire Confession of Faith, Article VI.

EVERYONE:

We believe that the blessings of salvation are made free to all by the gospel;

that it is the immediate duty of all to accept them by a cordial, penitent, and obedient faith;

and that nothing prevents the salvation of the greatest sinner on earth,

but his own inherent depravity and voluntary rejection of the gospel;

which rejection involves him in an aggravated condemnation.

CONFESSION OF SIN – 1 Timothy 6:17-19

As for the rich in this present age,

charge them not to be haughty,

nor to set their hopes on the uncertainty of riches,

but on God, who richly provides us with everything to enjoy.

They are to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share,

thus storing up treasure for themselves as a good foundation for the future,

so that they may take hold of that which is truly life.

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.

How Great Is Our God” by Chris Tomlin, Ed Cash, and Jesse Reeves

CONFESSION OF SIN – Matthew 7:1-5

Judge not, that you be not judged.

For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged,

and with the measure you use it will be measured to you.

Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye,

but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?

Or how can you say to your brother,

“Let me take the speck out of your eye,”

when there is the log in your own eye?

You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye,

and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Psalm 32:5

I acknowledged my sin to you,

and I did not cover my iniquity;

Blessed is the man against whom the Lord counts no iniquity,

through my groaning all day long.

For day and night your hand was heavy upon me;

CONFESSION OF SIN –

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 – Romans 10:9-13

If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord

and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead,

you will be saved.

For with the heart one believes and is justified,

and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.

For the Scripture says,

“Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame.”

For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek;

for the same Lord is Lord of all,

bestowing his riches on all who call on him.

For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
