God Calls Us to Worship Him
Call to Worship
Hymn: “Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing”
God Graciously Renews Us in Christ
Confession of Sin
Worship Leader: Almighty and everlasting God, who is always more ready to hear than we to pray, and are likely to give more than either we desire or deserve, pour down upon us the abundance of your mercy, forgiving us those things where our conscience is afraid and giving to us that which our prayer dare not presume to ask; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Forgiveness of Sin through Christ
Worship Leader: Gracious Redeemer, we thank you for the patience that you have given to us for so long, and for the grace that now makes us willing to be yours. Help us to unite with you in inseparable bonds, that nothing may ever draw us back from you, our Lord and our Savior. (taken from “The Gospel Way” from The Valley of Vision)
Hymn of Assurance: “Unashamed”
Thanking God for What He Has Done
Worship Leader: “To the one who contributes, [let it be] in generosity…the one who does acts of mercy, [let it be] with cheerfulness (Romans 12:8).”
Giving Our Tithes and Offerings
Hymn of Thanksgiving: “Whom Shall I Fear?”
God Instructs Us through His Word
Scripture Reading: Deuteronomy 6:20-25
“When your son asks you in time to come, ‘What is the meaning of the testimonies and the statutes and the rules that the Lord our God has commanded you?’ then you shall say to your son, ‘We were Pharaoh’s slaves in Egypt. And the Lord brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand. And the Lord showed signs and wonders, great and grievous, against Egypt and against Pharaoh and all his household, before our eyes. And he brought us out from there, that he might bring us in and give us the land that he swore to give to our fathers. And the Lord commanded us to do all these statutes, to fear the Lord our God, for our good always, that he might preserve us alive, as we are this day. And it will be righteousness for us, if we are careful to do all this commandment before the Lord our God, as he has commanded us.’"
God Feeds and Nourishes Us through His Supper
Communion Hymn: “Come Thou Everlasting Spirit"
God Blesses and Sends Us Out
All: The God who sent His Son to save, from guilt and darkness and the grave, be gracious to us and bless us and cause His face to shine on us. (Psalm 67:1)
