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. 408                                                 There’s a Sweet, Sweet Spirit

 

*PRAYER OF CONFESSION (Unison)

            Eternal God, we confess that we have praised you with our lips but have not glorified you with our lives.  Have mercy on us, we pray, for our weak faith that fades under pressure, for our quick enthusiasm that just as quickly dies, for the hopes we proclaim but do not pursue.
           Forgive us, Lord God, and give us new trust in your power, that we may live for justice and tell of your loving-kindness by our acts as by our words, 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.

 

 

MOMENT WITH THE CHILDREN                                             Dr. Johnson

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. 213                                                In the Cross of Christ I Glory

 

SCRIPTURE   Luke 4:1-11                 New Testament Page 61 in pew Bible

SERMON       REAL POWER                                                      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
