THE LIFE AND WORK OF THE CHURCH

 

 

ENTERING GOD’S HOUSE

 

QUIET MOMENT OF PREPARATION

 

CALL TO WORSHIP

Leader:            The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?

People:            The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be

afraid?

Leader:            Seek the Lord while he may be found.

People:            Call upon him while he is near.

 

*HYMN No. 370                                                    This Is My Father’s World

 

*PRAYER OF CONFESSION: (Unison)

            O God, whose ways are not our ways and whose thoughts not our thoughts, we confess to you our sin. We are a disobedient people, ignoring your laws, and disobeying your commandments. Forgive our sin and self-centeredness. Cleanse us by your grace that we may love you, serve you, and find in your service our deepest joy. In the name of Christ, we pray, amen.

 

*CONGREGATIONAL RESPONSE:   (KYRIE ELEISON)

Lord, have mercy upon us.                                                                                               Christ, have mercy upon us.

Lord, have mercy upon us. Amen.

 

*ASSURANCE OF PARDON

Leader:            Hear the Good News of the Bible:

For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever     believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:1)

People:            May the almighty and merciful God grant us pardon,

forgiveness, and remission of our sins; through Jesus Christ our     Lord, Amen.

 

*RESPONSE TO GOD’S GRACE   (Hymn No. 468, vs. 1&3)

In my life, Lord, be glorified; be glorified.

In my life, Lord, be glorified today.

In your church, Lord, be glorified; be glorified.

In your church, Lord, be glorified today.

SERMON      WHAT DO WE REALLY KNOW ABOUT JESUS?

Dr. Butler

 

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
