Psalm 34: 3, 8, 5

Hallelujah, Praise Jehovah, O My Soul    
N0  57
The Prayer of Adoration and Confession (Unison)                                                 
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                                                 Micah 7:18-19
Who is a God like You, pardoning iniquity and passing over transgression for the remnant of His inheritance? He does not retain His anger forever, because He delights in steadfast love. He will again have compassion on us; He will tread our iniquities underfoot. You will cast all our sins into the depths of the sea.

The Reading of Scripture

§ The Confession of Faith      
The Apostles’ Creed                  
TH page 845
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.

The Sacrament of the Lord’s Table
§ The Hymn of Consecration                                                      
N0 624
        Through All the Changing Scenes of Life (Dundee)
1 Through all the changing scenes of life,
in trouble and in joy,
the praises of my God shall still
my heart and tongue employ.

2 Of his deliv'rance I will boast,
till all that are distressed
from my example comfort take,
and charm their griefs to rest.

3 O magnify the Lord with me,
with me exalt his name;
when in distress to him I called,
he to my rescue came.

4 The hosts of God encamp around
the dwellings of the just;
deliv'rance he affords to all
who on his succor trust.

5 O make but trial of his love;
experience will decide
how blest they are, and only they,
who in his truth confide.

6 Fear him, ye saints, and you will then
have nothing else to fear:
make you his service your delight,
he'll make your wants his care.
§ The Benediction                                                                      
Revelation 22:21
The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all. Amen.
