Gathering Around the Word
CALL TO WORSHIP: from Psalm 34
I will extol the Lord at all times; His praise will always be on my lips.
Glorify the Lord with me; let us exalt His name together.
I sought the Lord and He answered me;
the Lord has delivered me from all my fears.
Those believers that look to the Lord are radiant;
their faces are never covered with shame.
Taste and see that the Lord is good!
Blessed is the man or woman who takes refuge in Him.
Come, my children and listen to me;
I will teach you the fear and respect of the Lord.
The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them;
He delivers them from all their troubles.
*HYMN “How Great Thou Art” # 625
Intro verse 1 – bar- 2nd verse
*PRAYER OF CONFESSION:
Most precious Jesus Christ, thank You for taking away our sins.
Thank You for suffering so that we do not have to. Thank You for
loving us enough to die for us.
We do not deserve You and Your sacrifice. We approach almost
every day in a selfish manner. We too often think of You only when we are in need. In this “Land of the Free” we have made ourselves kings and queens of our lives –not You.
Forgive us. Help us. Remind us of our need of You every day and every moment.
*Time of silent prayer:
*Assurance of Pardon
*Response – Gloria Patri
*The peace of the Lord Jesus be with you.
And also, with you.
*Passing of the peace
