PRELUDE – “Hosea” by Andrew Peterson

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – James 1:16-17

Do not be deceived, my beloved brothers.

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above,

coming down from the Father of lights

with whom there is no variation

or shadow due to change.

Song –

Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing” by John Wyeth and Robert Robinson

CONFESSION OF SIN – Psalm 32:3-5

When I kept silent, my bones wasted away

through my groaning all day long.

For day and night your hand was heavy upon me;

my strength was dried up as by the heat of summer.

I acknowledged my sin to you,

and I did not cover my iniquity;

I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,”

and you forgave the iniquity of my sin.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Psalm 31:1-2

Blessed is the one whose transgression is forgiven,

whose sin is covered.

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

and in whose spirit there is no deceit.

PRAYER – Psalm 32:6-7

Therefore let everyone who is godly

you surround me with shouts of deliverance.

PRELUDE – “Celebrate (He Lives)” by Fred Hammond

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Matthew 28:1-9

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.

Low in the Grave He Lay (Christ Arose)” by Robert Lowry

CONFESSION OF SIN – 1 Corinthians 15:1-8

Now I would remind you, brothers, of the gospel I preached to you, which you received, in which you stand, and by which you are being saved, if you hold fast to the word I preached to you—unless you believed in vain. For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. Then he appeared to more than five hundred brothers at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have fallen asleep. Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles. Last of all, as to one untimely born, he appeared also to me.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – 1 Corinthians 15:12-20

Now if Christ is proclaimed as raised from the dead, how can some of you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? But if there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain and your faith is in vain. We are even found to be misrepresenting God, because we testified about God that he raised Christ, whom he did not raise if it is true that the dead are not raised. For if the dead are not raised, not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and you are still in your sins. Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. If in Christ we have hope in this life only, we are of all people most to be pitied. But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.

Song –

Christ is Risen” by Matt Maher

AFFIRMATION OF FAITH – The Apostle’s Creed

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, 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.

Holy, Holy, Holy” by John Bacchus Dykes and Reginald Heber

CONFESSION OF SIN – from The Savoy Liturgy (1661)

O most great, most just, and most gracious God;

you are of purer eyes than to behold iniquity;

but you have promised mercy through Jesus Christ

to all who repent and believe in him.

Therefore, we confess that we are sinful by nature

and that we have all sinned and come short of the glory of God.

We have neglected and abused your holy worship and your holy name.

We have dealt unjustly and uncharitably with our neighbors.

We have not sought first your kingdom and righteousness.

We have not been content with our daily bread.

You have revealed your wonderful love to us in Christ

and offered us pardon and salvation in him;

but we have still regularly turned away.

We have run into temptation;

and the sin that we should have hated, we have committed.

Have mercy upon us, most merciful Father!

We confess you are our only hope.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – 1 Timothy 1:15

EVERYONE:

The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance,

that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners,

of whom I am the foremost.

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Isaiah 6:1-4

In the year that King Uzziah died

I 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.

he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins

LEADER:

What do you believe about the work of God?

EVERYONE:

We believe that God –

who is perfectly merciful and also very just –

sent his Son to assume the nature

in which the disobedience had been committed,

in order to bear in it the punishment of sin

by his most bitter passion and death.

LEADER:

And what do you believe about the work of Jesus Christ?

EVERYONE:

We believe that Jesus Christ presented himself

in our name before his Father,

to appease his wrath

with full satisfaction

by offering himself on the tree of the cross

and pouring out his precious blood

for the cleansing of our sins,

as the prophets had predicted.

LEADER:

Why did he endure all this?

EVERYONE:

He endured all this

for the forgiveness of our sins.

LEADER:

What comfort does this give you?

EVERYONE:

We find all comforts in his wounds

and have no need to seek or invent any other means

to reconcile ourselves with God

than this one and only sacrifice,

once made,

which renders believers perfect forever.

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Hebrews 12:18-29

For you have not come to what may be touched, a blazing fire and darkness and gloom and a tempest and the sound of a trumpet and a voice whose words made the hearers beg that no further messages be spoken to them. For they could not endure the order that was given, “If even a beast touches the mountain, it shall be stoned.” Indeed, so terrifying was the sight that Moses said, “I tremble with fear.” But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to innumerable angels in festal gathering, and to the assembly of the firstborn who are enrolled in heaven, and to God, the judge of all, and to the spirits of the righteous made perfect, and to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel. See that you do not refuse him who is speaking. For if they did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, much less will we escape if we reject him who warns from heaven. At that time his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, “Yet once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.” This phrase, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of things that are shaken – that is, things that have been made – in order that the things that cannot be shaken may remain. Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe, for our God is a consuming fire.

EVERYONE:

Almighty and merciful God,

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

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 penitent,

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.

and to keep oneself unstained from the world.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Psalm 103:8-14

The Lord is merciful and gracious,

slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.

He will not always chide,

nor will he keep his anger forever.

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.

As a father shows compassion to his children,

so the Lord shows compassion to those who fear him.

For he knows our frame;

he remembers that we are dust.
