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.

*INVOCATION

 

PRAYER OF CONFESSION

All: Almighty God, gracious Father, we confess that we are not worthy of your presence, but we look now to the Lamb of God, who takes away our sin. Through him we would now come near to you, listening to your voice, trusting in your love, delighting in your Word, and leaning on your arm. We joyfully beg to see your face.  Now cleanse our minds of all error and our hearts of all idols, that we may shine in the world with the radiant light of your Spirit and your character. In the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.  

 

SILENT CONFESSION

 

ASSURANCE OF PARDON                         Romans 3:21-25

“But now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law, although the Law and the Prophets bear witness to it—the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction: for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith. This was to show God’s righteousness, because in his divine forbearance he had passed over former sins.”

 

CONSECRATION (We Surrender Our Lives to Christ)

 

HYMN 32                      Great Is Thy Faithfulness

Heidelberg Catechism–

  • Q5 Can you keep all this perfectly? /

Answer: No, I am inclined by nature to hate God and my neighbour.

 

  • Q6 Did God, then, create man so wicked and perverse? /

Answer:  No, on the contrary, God created man good and in his image, that is, in true righteousness and holiness, so that he might rightly know God his Creator, heartily love him, and live with him in eternal blessedness to praise and glorify him.

Small Group Leaders Meeting – Are you interested in leading a small group? Have you lead a small group in the past?  If not, are you willing to be trained or maybe you’ve been trained and want to put that training to good use.  If so, we want to invite you to come to a meeting hosted by the Committee on Discipleship Ministries on Saturday, February 13th at 11:00AM.  Our plan is to set out some guidelines for establishing small groups and encouraging potential leaders to get started establishing groups in the church.
