Welcome

Call to Worship


God is our refuge and strength,

A very present help in trouble.

Therefore we will not fear,

Even though the earth be removed,

And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea.

Psalm 46:1–2 (NKJV)


Hymn # 92 A Mighty Fortress is our God


1 A mighty fortress is our God,

a bulwark never failing;

our helper he amid the flood

of mortal ills prevailing.

For still our ancient foe

doth seek to work us woe;

his craft and pow'r are great;

and armed with cruel hate,

on earth is not his equal.

2 Did we in our own strength

confide,

our striving would be losing;

were not the right man on our

side,

the man of God's own

choosing.

Dost ask who that may be?

Christ Jesus, it is he,

Lord Sabaoth his name,

from age to age the same,

and he must win the battle.


3 And though this world, with

devils filled,

should threaten to undo us,

we will not fear, for God hath

willed

his truth to triumph through us.

The prince of darkness grim,

we tremble not for him;

his rage we can endure,

for lo! his doom is sure;

one little word shall fell him.

4 That Word above all earthly

pow'rs,

no thanks to them, abideth;

the Spirit and the gifts are ours

through him who with us

sideth.

Let goods and kindred go,

this mortal life also;

the body they may kill:

God's truth abideth still;

his kingdom is forever.


Call To Confession

Jesus said... “ ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart,

with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great

commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor

as yourself.’

"If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is

not in us." Let us, therefore, confess ours sins to the Lord, saying

together: 1 John 1:8 (NKJV)


Confession of Sins

Almighty and Gracious Father, we confess to you that we have sinned

by not loving you with our whole heart and by not loving our neighbor

as ourselves. Our faith is weak and we easily give in to doubt. Forgive

us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness in thought, word

and deed. For we ask this in the name of your Son, who is our sure

Redeemer and our Savior. Amen.


Word of Assurance

Brothers and Sisters in Jesus, our Gracious Heavenly Father has

forgiven us our sins according to His word that " He has delivered us

from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the

Son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the

forgiveness of sins.” Colossians 1:13–14 (NKJV)


Doxology # 735

Praise God from whom all blessings flow;

praise him, all creatures here below;

praise him above, ye heav'ly host;

praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen.


Scripture Lesson:

Proverbs 24:10–12 (NKJV):

10 If you faint in the day of adversity,

Your strength is small.

11 Deliver those who are drawn toward death,

And hold back those stumbling to the slaughter.

12 If you say, “Surely we did not know this,”

Does not He who weighs the hearts consider it?

He who keeps your soul, does He not know it?

And will He not render to each man according to his deeds?


Psalm 82:1–8 (NKJV):

God stands in the congregation of the mighty;

He judges among the gods.

2 How long will you judge unjustly,

And show partiality to the wicked? Selah

3 Defend the poor and fatherless;

Do justice to the afflicted and needy.

4 Deliver the poor and needy;

Free them from the hand of the wicked.

5 They do not know, nor do they understand;

They walk about in darkness;

All the foundations of the earth are unstable.

6 I said, “You are gods,

And all of you are children of the Most High.

7 But you shall die like men,

And fall like one of the princes.”

8 Arise, O God, judge the earth;

For You shall inherit all nations.


Sermon


Hymn # 57 Hallelujah, Praise Jehovah

1 Hallelujah, praise Jehovah,

O my soul, Jehovah praise;

I will sing the glorious praises

of my God through all my days.

Put no confidence in princes,

nor for help on man depend;

he shall die, to dust returning,

and his purposes shall end.

2 Happy is the man that chooses

Israel's God to be his aid;

he is blessed whose hope of blessing

on the Lord his God is stayed.

Heav'n and earth the Lord created,

seas and all that they contain;

he delivers from oppression,

righteousness he will maintain.

3 Food he daily gives the hungry,

Sets the mourning prisoner free,

raises those bowed down with anguish,

makes the sightless eye to see.

Well Jehovah loves the righteous,

and the stranger he befriends,

helps the fatherless and widow,

judgment on the wicked sends.

4 Hallelujah, praise Jehovah,

O my soul, Jehovah praise;

I will sing the glorious praises

of my God through all my days.

Over all God reigns forever,

through all ages he is King;

unto him, your God, O Zion,

joyful hallelujahs sing.


Prayer of the Church with the Lord’s Prayer


Let us pray together as Jesus taught us:


“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.”


Hymn # 248 Ah , Holy Jesus (1-3)

1 Ah, holy Jesus, how hast thou offended,

that man to judge thee hath in hate pretended?

By foes derided, by thine own rejected,

O most afflicted.

2 Who was the guilty who brought this upon thee?

Alas, my treason, Jesus, hath undone thee.

'Twas I, Lord Jesus, I it was denied thee:

I crucified thee.

3 Lo, the Good Shepherd for the sheep is offered:

the slave hath sinned, and the Son hath suffered:

for man's atonement, while he nothing heedeth,

God intercedeth.


Lord’s Supper


Hymn # 248 Ah , Holy Jesus (4-5)

4 For me, kind Jesus, was thine incarnation,

thy mortal sorrow, and thy life's oblation:

thy death of anguish and thy bitter passion,

for my salvation.

5 Therefore, kind Jesus, since I cannot pay thee,

I do adore thee, and will ever pray thee,

think on thy pity and thy love unswerving,

not my deserving.


Benediction
