Order of Worship

Sunday, March 7, 2021


We extend a warm welcome to all our visitors this morning! Visitors, please complete the Welcome card in the pew rack and put it in the offering plate, so we may know how best to minister to/with you. Let’s prepare our hearts with silent Bible reading, meditation, and prayer before the service begins.


PRAISE (We Acknowledge God’s Majesty)


PRELUDE                                          Praise Team         


*HYMN 53                 Praise To The Lord, The Almighty  


*CALL TO WORSHIP                                         Psalm 146

Leader: Praise the Lord, O my soul! I will praise the Lord as long as I live…

All: Blessed is he…whose hope is in the Lord his God, who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, who keeps faith forever;

Leader: who executes justice for the oppressed, who gives food to the hungry. The Lord sets the prisoners free; the Lordopens the eyes of the blind. The Lord lifts up those who are bowed down; the Lord loves the righteous. 

All: The Lord watches over the sojourners; he upholds the widow and the fatherless, but the way of the wicked he brings to ruin. The Lord will reign forever….Praise the Lord!


*PRAISE SONGS                   Indescribable

                                                     Isaiah 43





All: Merciful Lord, pardon our sins.  We have been hasty and short in prayer, and this first sin of the day leads to so many others.  Keep us from robbing you of the true worship which your glory requires and which our hearts so urgently need. Wipe out our sins, known and unknown, felt and unfelt, remembered and forgotten.  Enable us to remember the blood that cleanses from all sin, and the grace which overwhelms all evil, in Jesus’ name. Amen. 




ASSURANCE OF PARDON                         Psalm 130:3-4

“If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand? But with you there is forgiveness, that you may be feared.”


CONSECRATION (We Surrender Our Lives to Christ)


*HYMN 465        Marvelous Grace of Our Loving Lord                          


THE OFFERING                                                      Psalm 39:6

“Surely a man goes about as a shadow! Surely for nothing they are in turmoil; man heaps up wealth and does not know who will gather!”


OFFERTORY                                                            Faith Choir

* Doxology: Hymnal, p. 732

Praise God from whom all blessings flow; praise Him, all creatures here below; Praise Him above, ye heavenly host, praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, Amen  




PRAYERS OF INTERCESSION                                            Bert Hauver


SCRIPTURE TEXT                                             Matthew 21:18-22


SERMON          “Fruit and Faithful Prayer”                   John Armstrong


*HYMN 304              I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say






For 2021, we are continuing to provide a basic Family Worship plan to help enable our families to more regularly worship together during the week. In each weekly bulletin, we will provide a Daily Bible Reading plan from “A Daughter of the Reformation”, weekly questions from the Heidelberg Catechism, and a hymn for you to learn together.


Week 10:


Weekly Hymn:   469 How Sweet and Awesome is the Place



Heidelberg Catechism–


  • Q15 What kind of mediator and deliverer must we seek? /

Answer: One who is a true and righteous man,
and yet more powerful than all creatures; that is, one who is at the same time true God.

  • Q16 Why must he be a true and righteous man? /

Answer: He must be a true man because the justice of God requires that the same human nature which has sinned should pay for sin. He must be a righteous man because one who himself is a sinner cannot pay for others.

Hearing assistance and large print pew Bibles are available during the worship service.  Please contact an usher for assistance.


Communion – We are having communion next week Sunday, March 14th.


Women in the Church –  All women are invited to participate in an upcoming new Women’s Bible study – Flourish – How the Love of Christ Frees Us from Self-Focus by Lydia Brownback.  A quick overview of the book “Flourish equips us with tools to identify the lies that come at us about where to find real life. As we dig deep into what God says in his Word, we will learn to discern the worldly influences that threaten to warp our understanding of what it really means to be a Christian and emerge with a faith that flourishes―full of the abundant life Jesus promises.”

Our first Bible study will be on Saturday, March 20th at 9:00 am.  There are a total of 6 Chapters.  We will use Zoom video conferencing to conduct the study.  The study book is NOT available on Amazon, so **please let Christine Stalnaker or Susan Hauver know if you would like the book no later than March 7th so we can order them prior to the first study (there is homework.)  

If you have any questions, please contact Christine Stalnaker (
