*THE CALL TO WORSHIP 

Leader: Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness, come into his presence with singing. 

People: Know that the Lord is God. It is he that made us, and we are his, we are his people and the sheep of his pasture. 

Leader: Enter God’s gates with thanksgiving, and God’s courts with praise. Give thanks to him, bless his name.

THE ASSURANCE OF PARDON 

Leader: God so loved the world that he sent his only son, so that whoever believes in him may not perish but have eternal life. 

People: Indeed, God sent the son not into the world that the world might be condemned but so that the world through him might be saved.

People: In Jesus Christ, we are forgiven. -John 3:16-17

In death’s dark vale I fear no ill with thee, dear Lord, beside me; 

Thy rod and staff my comfort still, Thy cross before to guide me.

THE ANTHEM  My Jesus, I Love Thee  arr. Paul Sjolund 

My Jesus, I love thee, I know thou art mine; for thee all the follies of sin I resign; my gracious Redeemer, my Savior art thou: If ever I loved thee, my Jesus, ’tis now. I love thee because thou hast first loved me, and purchased my pardon on Calvary’s tree. I love thee for wearing the thorns on thy brow: If ever I loved thee, my Jesus ’tis now. In mansions of glory and endless delight I’ll ever adore thee in heaven so bright; I’ll sing with the glittering crown on my brow: If ever I loved thee, my Jesus, ‘tis now. (text: William R.

And so through all the length of days Thy goodness faileth never; Good Shepherd, may I sing Thy praise within Thy house forever. 

 

*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 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 PASTORAL PRAYER 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.
