THE LIFE AND WORK OF THE CHURCH

 

ENTERING GOD’S HOUSE

QUIET MOMENT OF PREPARATION

CALL TO WORSHIP

 

Leader:   I will praise you, Lord, with all my heart.

People:  I will tell of all the wonderful things you have done.  I will sing          with joy because of you.  I will sing praise to you Almighty God.

Leader:   God rules the world with righteousness; he judges the nations with

justice.  The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed, a place of safely in

times of trouble.

People:   Those who know you, Lord, will trust you; you do not abandon

               anyone who comes to you.  Sing praise to the Lord, tell every

               nation what he has done.

                                                                       

*HYMN No. 1                                      Holy, Holy, Holy! Lord God Almighty!

 

*PRAYER OF CONFESSION (Unison)

              Holy God, Father of our Lord Jesus Christ;  your mercy is more than our minds can measure; your love outlasts our sin.  Forgive our guilt and fear and anger.  We pass by neighbors in distress, and are cruel to the needy.  We are quick to blame others, slow making up, and our resentments fester.
              Have mercy on us, God, have mercy on us, who blindly live our lives, for we do not know what we are doing.  Destroy sin and sick pride, and renew us by the love of Christ, who was crucified, and died for us.  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.

 

 

MOMENT WITH THE CHILDREN                                             Pat Oglesby

A nursery is provided each Sunday following the Children’s Time for children in Kindergarten and younger. Children’s Church will be held the first and third Sundays of each month, unless otherwise noted, for children in elementary school. On off Sundays, we encourage the older children to stay and participate in our worship service.

 

 

 HEARING GOD’S WORD

*HYMN No. 216                                                     Beneath the Cross of Jesus

SERMON        CALVARY                                                            Dr. Johnson

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
