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.

Call to Worship: (1 Chronicles 29:10-13) 

One: Praise be to you, O LORD, God of our father Israel, from everlasting to everlasting.

All: Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor,

One: for everything in heaven and earth is yours.

All: Yours, O LORD, is the kingdom; you are exalted as head over all.

One: Wealth and honor come from you; you are the ruler of all things.

All: In your hands are strength and power to exalt and give strength to all.

One: Now, our God, we give you thanks, and praise your glorious name.

YOUR GRACE IS ENOUGH / THE LORD IS MY LIGHT

First Scripture Lesson: John 3:16-19 (p.1052)

Prayer of Confession & Assurance of Forgiveness (“Sins” from The Valley of Vision)

Merciful Lord, pardon the sins of this day, week, year, all the sins of my life, sins of early, middle, and advanced years, of omission and commission, of morose, peevish and angry tempers, of lip, life and walk, of hard-heartedness, unbelief, presumption, pride, of unfaithfulness to the souls of men, of lack of bold decision in the cause of Christ, of deficiency in outspoken zeal for His glory, of bringing dishonor upon Thy great name, of deception, injustice, untruthfulness in my dealings with others, of impurity in thought, word and deed, of envy, which is idolatry, of substance unduly hoarded, squandered, not consecrated to the glory of Thee, the Great Giver; sins in private and in the family, in study and recreation, in the busy haunts of men, in the study of Thy Word and in the neglect of it, in prayer irreverently offered and coldly withheld, in time misspent, in yielding to Satan’s wiles, in opening my heart to his temptations, in being unwatchful when I know him near, in quenching the Holy Spirit; sins against light and knowledge, against the conscience and restraints of Thy Spirit, against the law of eternal love. Pardon all my sins, known and unknown, felt and unfelt, confessed and not confessed, remembered or forgotten. Good Lord, hear; and hearing, forgive. Amen.
