THE LIFE AND WORK OF THE CHURCH

 

ENTERING GOD’S HOUSE

QUIET MOMENT OF PREPARATION

CALL TO WORSHIP

 

Leader:  You who live in the shelter of the Most High,
                 in the shadow of the Almighty, will say to the Lord
People:  My refuge and my fortress; my God, in whom I trust.
Leader:  Because you have made the Lord your refuge, no evil shall befall

              you, no scourge come near your tent.
People: The Lord said, those who love me, I will deliver;
               I will protect those who know my name,

              I will be with them in trouble, I will rescue them.  

              With long life I will satisfy them, and show them my salvation.
All:        Let us worship the Lord our God.

                                                                         

*HYMN No. 267                                         Come, Christians, Join to Sing

 

*PRAYER OF CONFESSION (Unison)

  Merciful God, you pardon all who truly repent and turn to you.  We humbly confess our sins and ask your mercy.  We have not loved you with a pure heart, nor have we loved our neighbors as ourselves.  We have not done justice, loved kindness, or walked humbly with you, our God.  Almighty God: you know that in this world we are under great pressure, so that at times, we cannot stand.  Stiffen our resolve and make our faith strong, so we may dig in against temptation and by your power overcome; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen

*KYRIE ELEISON

               Lord, have mercy upon us.

Christ, have mercy upon us.

Lord, have mercy upon us.  Amen.

 

*ASSURANCE OF PARDON

 

 

 

*RESPONSE TO GOD’S GRACE    (Hymn No. 288)

 Spirit of the living God, Fall afresh on me;

Spirit of the living God, Fall afresh on me.

Melt me, mold me, Fill me, use me.

Spirit of the living God, Fall afresh on me.

A nursery is provided each Sunday following the Children’s Time for children in Kindergarten and younger.

RESPONDING TO GOD’S WORD

*THE APOSTLES’ CREED

            I 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 Ghost,

    born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate,

    was crucified, dead and buried; he descended into hell;

    the third day he rose again from the dead;

     he ascended into heaven,

    and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty;

    from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.

            I believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy catholic church;

    the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins;

    the resurrection of the body;

    and the life everlasting.  Amen
