WORSHIP OCTOBER 18 2015
Service of Worship Montreat

 

*THE CALL TO WORSHIP

Leader: Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord from the heavens; praise him in the heights!

People: Praise him, all his angels, praise him, all his hosts!

Leader: Praise him, sun and moon; praise him, all you shining stars!

People: Praise him, you highest heavens, and you waters above the heavens!

Leader: Let them praise the name of the Lord, for he commanded and they were created.

People: He established them forever and ever; he fixed their bounds, which cannot be passed.

Leader: Let us worship God, our creator, redeemer and sustainer. - Psalm 148:1-6

 

*THE HYMN  Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing

 

THE CALL TO CONFESSION

 

THE PRAYER OF CONFESSION

Creator God, you stretched the heavens and filled the seas. You separated the night from the day, and the dry land from the waters. And when you had created every living thing, you made us. From the dust of the earth, you raised us up. Created in your image, O God, we have striven for lesser things. We have allowed ourselves to be defined by sin rather than glory. Forgive us, we pray. Teach us once more to seek our true inheritance in Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

 

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

 

THE ASSURANCE OF PARDON

Leader: If anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation. The old has passed away; the new has come.

People: All this is from God, who reconciled himself to us through Christ and has given us the ministry of reconciliation.

Leader: That is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting the message of reconciliation to us. Believe the Promise of the Gospel:

People: In Jesus Christ, we are forgiven! - 2 Corinthians 5:17-19

The Great Thanksgiving

Leader: The Lord be with you.

Leader: Lift up your hearts!

People: We lift them to the Lord.

Leader: Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

People: It is right to give thanks and praise.

Leader: It is truly right…

Therefore we praise you, joining our voices with the choirs of heaven and with all the faithful of every time and place who forever sing to the glory of your name:

Sanctus: Holy, holy, holy, Lord, God of power and might, heaven and earth are full of your glory; hosanna in the highest. Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest.

Leader: You are holy, O God of majesty… Great is the mystery of faith.

People: Christ has died, Christ is risen, Christ will come again.
