Welcome Dan Smith

Call to Worship: Hebrews 10:19-23

Therefore, brethren, since we have confidence to enter the holy places by the blood of Jesus, by the new and living way that he opened for us through the curtain, that is, through his flesh, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful.

Invitation to Confess our Sins: Hebrews 4:14-16

Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

Prayer of Confession

Father, we come before You, the Maker of Heaven and Earth, who delights to dwell with the broken and contrite, to confess— that we have sinned in thought and word and deed; that we have not loved You with all our heart and soul, that we have not loved You with all our mind and strength; that we have not even loved our neighbor as ourselves. Forgive what we have been, change what we are, and by Your mercy direct what we are becoming; so that we may hereafter walk in the way of Your commands, and live to worship You. Renew us and change us, O Lord, for Jesus’ sake we pray. Amen.


Private Confession

Assurance of Pardon: Romans 8:31-34

What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? Who shall bring any charge against God's elect? It is God who justifies. Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us.
