Call to Worship
Good morning! What a privilege it is to gather together as a congregation this morning. What a privilege we have this morning to have the Word — to have the Lord — to have the Holy Spirit — to have the ability to gather here together.
Praise the LORD!
Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens!
Praise him for his mighty deeds; praise him according to his excellent greatness!
Let everything that has breath praise the LORD!
– Psalm 150:1-2, 6a
Worship in Song
All Creatures of Our God and King
Confession / Lament
We sing songs of praise to God to remind ourselves of His authority and provision. He’s the Lord — who created all things, and who rules and reigns over all things — including His Church. And in His kindness, He’s faithful to remind us of issues of sin in and through us. As we continue to sing, let’s earnestly ask the Lord to forgive us as His people — of hypocrisy, apathy, unbelief, half-heartedness, division, and the list goes on…
This song will help us do that:
Worship in Song
Lead Us Back
Assurance of Grace / Passing of Peace
Oh Christ, forgive us — for these things we sing of here are true, have been true, and continue to be true in some degree or another. Remind us, Lord, of the good news of the gospel — which frees the prisoner, adopts the foreigner, justifies the sinner, and exalts the humble. What good news it is, Lord!
Remind us. Remind us. Remind Us.
In Jesus’ name we pray (and all God’s people said), Amen.
Hear God’s Word and be encouraged, friends:
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him.
– Ephesians 1:3-4
Because the gospel is true, believers in Christ are being made into who they were truly meant to be, and collectively making up a Church that reflects Christ and His kingdom to a watching world. One way the Lord does that is by increasing our love for one another. Take time now to do just that — love your neighbor as yourself — because of what the Lord has done!
Sermon | Conclusion & Review | Ephesians 6:21-24
Response | Giving | The Lord’s Supper
Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
– Ephesians 3:20-21
Peace be with you!
And also with you!
