Gathering Song

O Worship the King  #2


O worship the king all glorious above

And gratefully sing his power and his love!

Our shield and defender, the Ancient of Days,

Pavilioned in splendor and girded with praise.


O tell of his might, O sing of his grace,

Whose robe is the light, whose canopy space.

His chariots of wrath the deep thunderclouds form,

And dark is his path on the wings of the storm.


The earth with its store of wonders untold,

Almighty Your power has founded of old,

Established it fast by a changeless decree, 

And round it has cast, like a mantle, the sea.

Your bountiful care what tongue can recite? 

It breathes in the air; it shines in the light; 

It streams from the hills; it descends to the plain;

And sweetly distills in the dew and the rain.

Frail children of dust, and feeble as frail,

In You do we trust, nor find You to fail;

Your mercies how tender, how firm to the end,

Our Maker, Defender, Redeemer, and Friend!

Welcome to Visitors / Announcements (back of bulletin)

Call to Worship

Let us worship God. 

He is our refuge and our fortress, our God, in whom we trust. 

Let us confess with our mouths, “Jesus is Lord,” And believe in our hearts 

that God raised him from the dead. Everyone who calls on the name of the 

Lord will be saved. Let us call upon our true God, believing  him in our

 hearts, confessing him with our mouths, and worshipping him in spirit and in truth.


based on Psalm 91:2; Romans 10:9

The Prayer of Invocation

How Deep the Father's Love For Us


How deep the Father's love for us, how vast beyond all measure:

That He should give His only Son to make a wretch His treasure!

How great the pain of searing loss: the Father turns His face away,

As wounds which mar the Chosen One bring many sons to glory.


Behold the Man upon a cross, my sin upon His shoulders;

Ashamed, I hear my mocking voice call out among the scoffers.

It was my sin that held Him there until it was accomplished.

His dying breath has brought me life; I know that it is finished!


I will not boast in anything – no gifts, no power, no wisdom – 

But I will boast in Jesus Christ, His death and resurrection.

Why should I gain from His reward? I cannot give an answer.

But this I know with all my heart: His wounds have paid my ransom.

Corporate Confession of Sin

O God, you demonstrated your love for us in that while we were sinners, Christ 

died for us. And while we were your enemies you reconciled us to yourself by 

the death of your son and have saved us by his life. We have sinned against 

you and against one another. We confess that we have not always used sober

 judgement but have thought more highly of ourselves than we ought. We

 have not regularly benefited one another with those gifts you gave us; or

 we have exercised those gifts only for ourselves. With the tax collector

 we bow our heads and beat our breasts, saying: God, be merciful

 to me, a sinner! Amen.


Based on Romans 5:8-10; 12:3-6; Luke 18:13-14



Private Confession of Sin


The Assurance of Pardon

"Let each of you truly acknowledge that he is a sinner, humbling himself before God, and 

believe that the heavenly Father wills to be gracious unto him in Jesus Christ. To all those

 that repent in this way, and look to Jesus Christ for their salvation, I declare that the 

absolution of sins is effected, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy 

Spirit, according to God's Word: 'Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white 

as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.


From John Calvin’s Strasbourg Liturgy, 1545

The Peace
Since God has forgiven us in Christ, let us forgive one another.
The peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.  And also with you.

Victory in Jesus

I heard an old, old story, how a Savior came from glory,

How He gave His life on Calvary to save a wretch like me;

I heard about His groaning, of His precious blood’s atoning;

Then I repented of my sins and won the victory.


 O victory in Jesus, my Savior, forever!
He sought me and bought me with His redeeming blood;

He loved me ere I knew Him, and all my love is due Him —

He plunged me to victory beneath the cleansing flood.


I heard about His healing, of His cleansing power revealing,

How He made the lame to walk again and caused the blind to see;

And then I cried, “Dear Jesus, come and heal my broken spirit,”

And somehow Jesus came and brought to me the victory.


O victory in Jesus, my Savior, forever!
He sought me and bought me with His redeeming blood;

He loved me ere I knew Him, and all my love is due Him —

He plunged me to victory beneath the cleansing flood.


I heard about a mansion He has built for me in glory,

And I heard about the streets of gold beyond the crystal sea;

About the angels singing and the old redemption story,

And some sweet day I’ll sing up there the song of victory.


O victory in Jesus, my Savior, forever!
He sought me and bought me with His redeeming blood;

He loved me ere I knew Him, and all my love is due Him —

He plunged me to victory beneath the cleansing flood.

a tithe or offering today there will be someone with an offering plate standing by the sanctuary doors as you leave.

Hymn of Response

Blessed Assurance  #693


Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!

O what a foretaste of glory divine!

Heir of salvation, purchase of God,

Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood;

This is my story, this is my song,

Praising my Savior all the day long;

This is my story, this is my song,

Praising my Savior all the day long.


Perfect submission, perfect delight, 

Visions of rapture now burst on my sight;

Angels descending, bring from above

Echoes of mercy, whispers of love. 


Perfect submission, all is at rest, 

I in my Savior am happy and blest;

Watching and waiting, looking above,

Filled with His goodness, lost in His love.


"Blessed Assurance," Words: Fanny J. Crosby, Music: Phoebe P. Knapp


Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper

We invite all baptized Christians who profess faith in Jesus Christ for their 

salvation and are members of congregations that proclaim the Gospel
to join us in taking the Lord’s Supper. 


Prayer of Thanksgiving


The Lord be with you!   And also with you.

Lift up your hearts!   We lift them up to the Lord.

Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

It is right for us to give thanks and praise.

Most righteous God, we remember in this supper the perfect sacrifice offered

 once on the cross by our Lord Jesus Christ for the sin of the whole world.

In the joy of his resurrection and in the expectation of his coming again,

we offer ourselves to you as holy and living sacrifices.

Together we proclaim the mystery of faith:

Christ has died;  Christ is risen;  Christ will come again.


Words of Institution         1 Corinthians 11:23-26 ESV

The Lord Jesus, on the night when he was betrayed, took bread, and when

he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, “This is my body, which is for you.
Do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way also he took the cup,
after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood.

Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.”

For as often as you eat the bread and drink the cup,

you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.


Doxology  #731

(Tune: “Old Hundredth” from the Genevan Psalter)


Praise God, from Whom all blessings flow;

Praise Him, all creatures here below;

Praise Him above, ye heavenly host;

Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.  Amen.


Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and 

may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at 

the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is faithful;

 he will surely do it.

1 Thessalonians 5:23-24
