WORSHIP JUNE 25 2017
10 A.M. WORSHIP

 

THE GATHERING  Beth Waltemath 

Leader: The Lord be with you. 

People: And also with you. 

 

THE PRELUDE  Air  Jean Phillipe Rameau 

 

*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 will sing for joy. 

Leader: Let us worship God, who has created, redeemed and sustained us. Amen. - Psalm 92 

 

*THE PROCESSIONAL HYMN 268  God, Who Stretched the Spangled Heavens  HOLY MANNA 

 

THE CALL TO CONFESSION 

 

THE PRAYER OF CONFESSION 

Eternal God, we are enmeshed in sin. At times we are not even aware of the implications of our actions. We think to ourselves that we have not sinned, but the truth is not in us. We think to ourselves that if we have avoided certain temptations, we have triumphed over evil, but we lack understanding. We fail to realize that simply living in a sinful world makes us sinners. So forgive us, we pray, again and again, and turn our hearts, again and again, that we might seek you and your holiness. Through Jesus Christ our Lord we pray, Amen. 

 

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

 

THE ASSURANCE OF PARDON 

Leader: So if you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 

People: Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth, for you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. 

Leader: When Christ who is your life is revealed, then you also will be revealed with him in glory. Believe the promise of the Gospel: 

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

 

*THE CONGREGATIONAL RESPONSE  (Hymn 376) 

Breathe, O breathe thy loving Spirit into every troubled breast! Let us all in thee inherit, let us find the promised rest. Take away the love of sinning: Alpha and Omega be; end of faith, as its beginning, set our hearts at liberty. 

 

*THE PASSING OF THE PEACE 

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

People: And also with you.

THE FIRST LESSON  Matthew 10:24-39 (page 10 in the pew Bible, NT) 

 

THE ANTHEM  True Light  Keith Hampton 

This little light of mine I’m gonna let it shine. Almighty God is light. He lives in us as True Light. In the beginning, out of the darkness, God created True Light. He lives in us as True Light. Don’t let the light that you’ve given me die, and don’t desert my mind. But let the one who serves you praise you again and again. He lives in us as True Light. You are the one who judges right from wrong. Your glory excites no envy. But let the one who serves you praise you again and again. He lives in us as True Light. This little light of mine I’m gonna let it shine. Everywhere I go, I want the world to know God gave the world True Light! 

Lenna Turner, Linda Johnson, Peter Chatel, soloists

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.

For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever. Amen.
