WORSHIP APRIL 13 2014
PALM SUNDAY

* THE CALL TO WORSHIP
Leader: They brought the colt to Jesus and threw their cloaks on it; and he sat on it.
Many people spread their cloaks on the road, and others spread leafy branches
that they had cut in the fields. Then those who went ahead and those who
followed were shouting:
People: Hosanna! Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord!
Blessed is the coming kingdom of our ancestor David. Hosanna
in the highest heaven! - Mark 11:7-11

*THE PROCESSIONAL HYMN 88  All Glory, Laud and Honor

THE CALL TO CONFESSION

THE PRAYER OF CONFESSION  Drew Stockstill
Eternal God, we confess that we have followed you closely, saying the right
things, murmuring our assent in all the right places, shouting acclamations at
all the right times, but our discipleship is lacking. When the time comes for
hard declarations in the face of the demon possessed powers of this world, our
hosannas fade into “I know the man not.” Forgive us, we pray, for our failure to
be disciples willing to follow you into all the earth. We pray this in the name of
Jesus, and for his sake. Amen.

THE KYRIE (Hymn 572)
Lord, have mercy upon us.
Christ, have mercy upon us.
Lord, have mercy upon us.

THE ASSURANCE OF PARDON
Leader: Christ Jesus, though he was in the form of God, did not regard equality
with God as something to be exploited, but emptied himself, taking the
form of a slave, being born in human likeness.
People: And being found in human form, he humbled himself and became
obedient, to the point of death – even death on a cross.
Leader: Therefore God also highly exalted him, and gave him the name that is above
every name,
People: so that at the name of Jesus, every knee should bend, in heaven and
on earth and under the earth, and every tongue should confess that
Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Leader: Believe the promise of the Gospel:
People: In Jesus Christ, we are forgiven. - Philippians 2:6-11

*THE CONGREGATIONAL RESPONSE (Hymn 416)
To this temple, where we call you, come, O Lord of Hosts, today; with your wonted
loving kindness hear your people as they pray, and your fullest benediction shed
within its walls alway.

THE ANTHEM  Ave Verum Corpus  W. A. Mozart
Hail, true Body, born of the Virgin Mary, who having truly suffered, was sacrificed on the cross for mankind,
whose pierced side flowed with water and blood: May it be for us a foretaste [of the Heavenly banquet]
in the trial of death.

*THE APOSTLES’ CREED  Dana Hughes    
I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and in Jesus
Christ his only Son our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of
the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried;
he descended into hell; the third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended
into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from
thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy
Ghost; the holy catholic church; the communion of saints; the forgiveness of
sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting. Amen.

THE PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE AND THE LORD’S PRAYER
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom
come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily
bread; and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors; and lead us not
into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom and the
power and the glory, forever. Amen.
