Call to Worship
Good morning, and welcome! As we begin our time each week with a call to worship from the Scriptures, let’s remember the one place we can put our trust and confidence in — the Lord who hears us and saves us. Let’s declare together, along with the Psalmist, who we worship:
Blessed be the LORD!
For he has heard the voice of our pleas for mercy.
The LORD is our strength and our shield;
our heart exults, and with our songs we give thanks to him.
The LORD is the strength of us, his people,
he is the saving refuge of us, his anointed.
Oh, save your people and bless your heritage!
Be our shepherd and carry us forever.
– Psalm 28:6-9 adapted to plural
Worship in Song | Come Thou Fount
Confession / Lament
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it — prone to leave the God I love! Jesus knows our greatest good is our nearness to him. Hear his words:
Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.
– John 15:4-5
Worship in Song | Abide With Me
Assurance of Grace / Passing of the Peace
What ultimate triumph we have because of Jesus! In joy or in suffering, in life or in death — victory. Let’s celebrate that as we greet one another now!
May the love of God surround you,
the grace of Christ attend you,
and the Holy Spirit keep you, both today and until we meet again.
Peace be with you!
And also with you!
