WORSHIP JUNE 21 2015
11 A.M. WORSHIP

 

THE GATHERING  Bill Humphries

Leader: The Lord be with you.

People: And also with you.

 

THE PRELUDE  Adagio from Symphony No. 5  Charles Marie Widor

 

*THE CALL TO WORSHIP

Leader: I will bless the Lord at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth.

People: My soul makes its boast in the Lord; let the humble hear and be glad.

Leader: O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together.

People: I sought the Lord, and he answered me, and delivered me from all my fears.

Leader: Look to him, and be radiant, so your faces shall never be ashamed.

People: We have come to worship God, our creator, redeemer and sustainer.

- Psalm 34:1-5

 

*THE PROCESSIONAL HYMN 442  The Church’s One Foundation

 

THE CALL TO CONFESSION

 

THE PRAYER OF CONFESSION

Eternal God, maker of the earth and all that is in it, you have created us for worship and joy. Yet, in sin, we have hidden our faces and shuffled away. We take the part of spectator rather than joining in the joyous dance of faith. Forgive our shrinking away. It is our fear that keeps us from living into you. So cleanse us we pray, from all that frightens us, and bring us into your presence that we may worship in spirit and truth. We pray this in the name of Jesus, and for his sake. Amen.

 

A MOMENT OF SILENCE (for examination of conscience and personal prayers of confession)

 

THE ASSURANCE OF PARDON

Leader: This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the Lord;

People: “I will put my laws in their hearts, and I will write them on their minds,”

Leader: He also adds,

People: “I will remember their sins and their lawless deeds no more.”

Leader: Where there is forgiveness of these, there is no longer any offering for sin. Believe the promise of the Gospel:

People: In Jesus Christ, our sins are forgiven. - Hebrews 10:16-18

 

*THE CONGREGATIONAL RESPONSE (Hymn 562)

O Trinity of love and power, all travelers guard in danger’s hour; from rock and tempest, fire and foe, protect them where so e’er they go; thus evermore shall rise to thee glad praise from air and land and sea.

To God be joyful; all hearts now be joyful! Alleluia, alleluia. Know the Lord is God; he hath made us, and we are his. We are his flock, he the shepherd. O enter forth with thanksgiving; come with singing. To God be joyful; all hearts now be joyful! Alleluia, alleluia. Indeed, how good is the Lord; alleluia. Know the Lord is God. Alleluia.

*THE APOSTLES’ CREED

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.
