Call to Worship
Good morning, and welcome! Hear God’s Word as it calls us all to worship:
Oh sing to the LORD a new song; sing to the LORD, all the earth!
Sing to the LORD, bless his name; tell of his salvation from day to day.
Declare his glory among the nations,
his marvelous works among all the peoples!
For great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised;
he is to be feared above all gods.
For all the gods of the peoples are worthless idols,
but the LORD made the heavens.
Splendor and majesty are before him;
strength and beauty are in his sanctuary.
Ascribe to the LORD, O families of the peoples,
ascribe to the LORD glory and strength!
Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name;
bring an offering, and come in to his courts!
Worship the LORD in the splendor of holiness;
tremble before him, all the earth!
Say among the nations, “The LORD reigns!”
– Psalm 96:1-10a
Worship in Song | Praise to the Lord
Confession / Lament
God is holy and perfectly righteous. None of us are righteous on our own. Not one. None of us understand God without God. We’ve all turned from Him and are helpless without Him. All of us have sinned and fallen short of God’s glory. Pray with me:
Forgive us, Lord. Guide us in Your ways and in Your love. May Your Spirit guide us to repentance. For You are God, forever and ever. And You will guide us forever! Amen. (from Psalm 48:14)
Worship in Song | Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah
Assurance of Grace / Passing of the Peace
We can bring our need before God with confidence and dependence because of Jesus. Hear this and be assured.
Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
– Hebrews 4:14-16
So, as those in Christ who have received such mercy and grace, let’s greet one another with the peace we’ve been given.
Sermon|I Dare You | Malachi 3:6-12
Response | Giving | Prayer | The Lord’s Supper
Now to him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of his glory with great joy, to the only God, our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen.
Peace be with you!
And also with you!
