Welcome Dan Smith

Call to Worship: John 11:25-26

“I am the Resurrection and the Life. He who believes in Me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in Me will never die..."

Prayer of Invocation

Song of Praise

Come, Thou Almighty King

Text: source unknown; music: Felice de Giardini, ITALIAN HYMN

Prayer of Confession

Urged by our need, Invited by Your promises, Called by Your Spirit, We enter Your presence, worshipping You with godly fear, Awed by Your majesty, greatness, and glory, but encouraged by Your love.

I am impoverished and filled with guilt, Having nothing of my own with which to repay You, But I bring Jesus to You in the arms of faith, pleading His righteousness to offset my sins, rejoicing that He will weigh down the scales for me, and satisfy Your justice. I bless You that great sin draws out great grace, That, although the least sin deserves infinite punishment because it is committed against an infinite God, yet there is mercy for me. For where guilt is most terrible, there Your mercy in Christ is most free and deep. Bless me by revealing to me more of His saving merits, by causing Your goodness to pass before me, by speaking Your peace to my contrite heart.

Silent Confession

Assurance of Pardon: Romans 8:15-17

For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!” The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ.
