Order of Worship

Sunday, February 14, 2020


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         Christ Is Mine Forevermore              Praise Team         


*HYMN OF PRAISE             Glory Be To God The Father


*CALL TO WORSHIP                                         Psalm 135:1-3, 21

Leader: Praise the Lord!

All: Praise the name of the Lord, give praise, O servants of the Lord, who stand in the house of the Lord, in the courts of the house of our God! 

Leader: Praise the Lord, for the Lord is good; sing to his name, for it is pleasant!

All: Blessed be the Lord from Zion, he who dwells in Jerusalem! Praise the Lord!


*PRAISE SONGS                  Days of Elijah

                                               Ancient of Days





All:  Almighty God, To know you is the fulfillment of our deepest longings and the satisfaction of our most ardent desires. Yet foolishly we have sought our pleasures elsewhere. We have put the seeking of idols, which are bound to leave us feeling empty, above seeking you. We have failed to love you with our whole heart, soul, and mind.  We have failed to love our neighbors as ourselves. Forgive us for our sins for the sake of your Son, our Savior Jesus Christ. And grant that from now on we might serve you in newness of life. 



ASSURANCE OF PARDON                         Isaiah 55:6-7

“Seek the Lord while he may be found; call upon him while he is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.”


CONSECRATION (We Surrender Our Lives to Christ)


*HYMN 381          Brethren We Have Met To Worship!                           


THE OFFERING                                                     Deuteronomy 10:14

“Behold, to the Lord your God belong heaven and the heaven of heavens, the earth with all that is in it.”



* Doxology: Hymnal, p. 731

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

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 7:


Weekly Hymn:   235 All Glory Laud and Honor



Heidelberg Catechism–


  • Q9 But does not God do man an injustice by requiring in his law
    what man cannot do? /
    Answer: No, for God so created man that he was able to do it. But man, at the instigation of the devil, in deliberate disobedience robbed himself and all his descendants of these gifts.
  • Q10 Will God allow such disobedience and apostasy to go unpunished? /

Answer: Certainly not. He is terribly displeased with our original sin

as well as our actual sins. Therefore he will punish them by a just judgment both now and eternally, as he has declared:

Cursed is everyone who does not continue to do everything written in the Book of the Law (Gal 3:10).
