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.

SERMON               “Called to Serve”                              John Armstrong


COMMUNION (God Confirms His Promises to Us)



Leader: Lord Jesus Christ, though being in very nature God, when you came to redeem us you humbled yourself and made yourself nothing. Though you were rich, for our sakes you became poor, so that through your poverty we might become rich. 

All: We confess how unlike you we are in our attitudes and actions. We strive for recognition from others, and we sulk and become bitter if we do not get it. We attend to our own needs and concerns, yet fail to care for others except when it serves our purposes.  Forgive us our sin and renew our hearts. Grant us to realize that we only achieve greatness and gain our lives by giving them away. Work in us by the power of your Spirit so that we become more like you and so bring glory to our Father in heaven, for we pray in Jesus name, Amen. 






*HYMN 429             Let Thy Blood In Mercy Poured






*Congregation standing if able

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 6:


Weekly Hymn:   304 I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say



Heidelberg Catechism–


  • Q7 From where, then, did man’s depraved nature come? /
    Answer: From the fall and disobedience of our first parents, Adam and Eve, in Paradise, for there our nature became so corrupt that we are all conceived and born in sin.
  • Q8 But are we so corrupt that we are totally unable to do any good and inclined to all evil?

Answer: Yes, unless we are regenerated by the Spirit of God
