The Prelude

     Leader: May we shout for joy over your salvation, 
                and in the Name of our God set up our banners!
     People: Shout, and sing for joy, O inhabitant of Zion,
                for great in your midst is the Holy One of Israel.

§ The Hymn of Adoration         Praise, My Soul, the King of Heaven           N0  76
The Prayer of Adoration and Confession
Our Father, who is in heaven, hallowed be Your name.
Your kingdom come.  Your 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 Yours is the kingdom, the power,
           and the glory forever.  Amen
[Take a moment to silently confess your sins and unbelief…Amen.]

The Assurance of Pardon                                                           Isaiah 43:25
I, I am He Who blots out your transgressions for My own sake,
and I will not remember your sins.

The Reading of Scripture                                
         Hebrews 5                                                         Pew Bible Page 1003
§ The Confession of Faith                                            The Apostles’ Creed
Q: Christian, what do you believe?
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord,
Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, and born of the virgin Mary.
He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried;
He descended into hell.
The third day He rose again from the dead.
He ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty.
From there He shall come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.
*The word "catholic" refers not to the Roman Catholic Church, but to the universal church of the Lord Jesus Christ.
