WORSHIP JULY 10 2016
11 A.M. WORSHIP

 

THE GATHERING  Drew Stockstill 

Leader: The Lord be with you. 

People: And also with you. 

 

THE PRELUDE  “Prelude and Fugue in C Major”  J.S. Bach 

Mac Frampton, Guest Organist 

 

*THE CALL TO WORSHIP 

Leader: It is good to give thanks to the Lord, to sing praises to your name, O Most High; 

People: To declare your steadfast love in the morning, and your faithfulness by night, 

Leader: To the music of the lute and the harp, to the melody of the lyre. 

People: For you, O Lord, have made me glad by your work; at the works of your hands I sing for joy. 

Leader: Let us worship the Lord our God. -Psalm 92:1-4 

 

*THE PROCESSIONAL HYMN 487  When Morning Gilds the Skies  LAUDES DOMINI 

 

THE CALL TO CONFESSION 

 

THE PRAYER OF CONFESSION 

Holy God, we are your people. Yet we do not always live as though this were true. You love us beyond our imagination and we are grateful, but not grateful enough to risk meeting your expectations. Where you would have us act, we have complacently waited. We have allowed barriers of our own making to rise between ourselves and those you would have us serve. Forgive our sin, we pray, and call us once more to live as your people, set apart and different. Transform us. We pray in the name of Jesus, Amen. 

 

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

 

THE ASSURANCE OF PARDON 

Leader: We do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with out weaknesses, 

People: But we have one who in every respect has been tested as we are, yet without sin. 

Leader: Let us therefore approach the throne of grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Believe the promise of the Gospel: 

People: In Jesus Christ we are forgiven. - Hebrews 4:15-16 

 

*THE CONGREGATIONAL RESPONSE (Number 155) 

Rejoice in glorious hope! For Christ, the Judge, shall come to glorify the saints for their eternal home: Lift up your heart, lift up your voice! Rejoice, again I say, rejoice! 

 

*THE PEACE OF CHRIST 

Leader: The peace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with you all! 

People: And also with you.

We are one in the Spirit, we are one in the Lord, and we pray that all unity will one day be restored. And they’ll know we are Christians by our love. Yes, they’ll know we are Christians by our love. We will walk with each other, we will walk hand in hand, and together we’ll spread the news that God is in our land, (refrain). We will work with each other, we will work side by side, and we’ll guard each one’s dignity and save each one’s pride, (refrain). All praise to the Father, from whom all things come, and all praise to Christ Jesus, His only Son, and all praise to the Spirit who makes us one, (refrain). (text: Peter Scholtes)
