WORSHIP NOVEMBER 13 2016
11 A.M. WORSHIP

 

THE GATHERING  Beth Waltemath 

Leader: The Lord be with you. 

People: And also with you. 

 

THE PRELUDE  Prelude on “Dominus Regit Me”  Gordon Young 

 

*THE CALL TO WORSHIP 

Leader: Praise the Lord! Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty firmament! 

People: Praise him for his mighty deeds; praise him according to his surpassing greatness. 

Leader: Praise him with trumpet sound; praise him with lute and harp! Praise him with tambourine and dance; praise him with strings and pipe! 

People: Praise him with clanging cymbals; praise him with loud clashing cymbals! 

Leader: Let everything that breathes praise the Lord! 

All: Praise the Lord! - Psalm 150 

 

*THE PROCESSIONAL HYMN 464  Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee  HYMN TO JOY 

 

THE CALL TO CONFESSION 

 

THE PRAYER OF CONFESSION 

Merciful God, our sin is before us. Your way for us is clear: we are to love you with all our hearts, souls, minds and strength, and our neighbors as ourselves. Who among us may claim such love? In this calling, we have fallen short. We need reconciliation. And yet, we remember as well that our calling to live lives of humanity and kindness does not fail, and so we ask once more that you would strengthen us in discipleship, guide us, and give us the courage to live as you have called us. We ask 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: Should we continue in sin in order that grace may abound? 

People: By no means! How can we who died to sin go on living in it? 

Leader: Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? 

People: Therefore we have been buried with him by baptism into death, so that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life. 

Leader: Believe the promise of the gospel: 

People: In Jesus Christ, we are forgiven. - Romans 6:1-4 

 

THE CONGREGATIONAL RESPONSE (Hymn 391) 

Take my will, and make it thine; it shall be no longer mine. Take my heart, it is thine own; it shall be thy royal throne, it shall be thy royal throne. 

 

*THE PEACE OF CHRIST 

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

People: And also with you.

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.
