Worship Guide

Welcome

Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker; for he is our God and we are the people of his pasture, the flock under his care.

Psalm 95:6-7

Worship is not something we observe. It’s something we bring our whole selves to, so we have worship guides for each service that we hope can help you engage in worship. We invite you to join in with every moment of worship: sing, listen, respond and pray as we gather together.

This worship guide is updated by Friday of each week in preparation for Sunday’s worship times. You can also download this quarter’s children’s bulletins here.

9 AM

Gathering Song: NO NOT ONE

Welcome and Announcements

Call to Worship: (from Isaiah 52) 

One: “Therefore my people will know my name; therefore in that day they will know that it is I who foretold it. Yes, it is I.”  

All:  How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, “Your God reigns!” 

One:  Listen! Your watchmen lift up their voices; together they shout for joy. When the LORD returns to Zion, they will see it with their own eyes.  

All:  Burst into songs of joy together, you ruins of Jerusalem, for the LORD has comforted his people, he has redeemed Jerusalem.  

One:  The LORD will lay bare his holy arm in the sight of all the nations, and all the ends of the earth will see the salvation of our God.”  Let us worship Him! 

YOUR GRACE IS ENOUGH

Call to Confession and Prayer

All:  May the yoke of the Law of God be on my shoulder, the coming of the Holy Spirit on my head, the sign of Christ on my forehead, the hearing of the Holy Spirit in my ears, the smelling of the Holy Spirit in my nose, the vision of the people of heaven in my eyes, the speech of the people of heaven in my mouth, the work of the church of God in my hands, the good of God and of neighbor in my feet.  May God dwell in my heart, and may I belong entirely to God the Father.  Amen.
