WORSHIP JUNE 5 2016
11 A.M. WORSHIP

 

THE GATHERING  James Klotz 

Leader: The Lord be with you. 

People: And also with you. 

 

THE PRELUDE  Toccata in E Minor  Johann Pachelbel 

 

*THE CALL TO WORSHIP 

Leader: I lift up my eyes to the hills—from where will my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth. 

People: He will not let your foot be moved; he who keeps you will not slumber; he who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. 

Leader: The Lord is your keeper; the Lord is your shade at your right hand. The sun shall not strike you by day, nor the moon by night. 

People: The Lord will keep you from all evil; he will keep your life. The Lord will keep your going out and your coming in from this time on and forevermore. 

Leader: Let us worship God, who creates us, redeems us and sustains us, Amen. 

-Psalm 121 

 

*THE PROCESSIONAL HYMN 274  O God of Earth and Space  LEONI 

 

THE CALL TO CONFESSION 

 

THE PRAYER OF CONFESSION 

Eternal God, we have heard the stories of your marvelous deeds. We have been told of miracles and signs. We have read of redemption and reconciliation. There is no shortage of witness to who you are and who you would have us be in light of your revelation. Yet our discipleship often is halting, slow to start and meager once started. We need a vision of salvation that will sustain us into our uncertain futures. So we pray once more that you will forgive our sin and give us such a vision to live as you created us to live; as you redeemed us to live. We pray it in Jesus’ name, and for his sake, Amen. 

 

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

 

THE ASSURANCE OF PARDON 

Leader: Just as we have the same spirit of faith that is in accordance with Scripture— “I believed and so I spoke” —so we also believe, and so we speak, because we know that the one who raised the Lord Jesus from the dead will raise us also with Jesus, and will bring us with you into his presence. 

People: Yes, everything is for your sake, so that grace, as it extends to more and more people, may increase thanksgiving, to the glory of God. 

Leader: Believe the promise of the gospel: 

People: In Jesus Christ, we are forgiven. -2 Corinthians 4:13-15 

 

*THE CONGREGATIONAL RESPONSE  Psalm 146  NETTLETON 

Bless the Lord, give praise and honor unto God who lends me breath; may my tongue God’s greatness never cease to tell before my death, and in songs of sovereign goodness, let me sing beyond the grave; God, whose grave my life to ranson, God whose will my soul to save. (text: Michael Morgan)
