Order of Worship
Sunday, June 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)
*HYMN OF PRAISE Blessed Be Your Name
*CALL TO WORSHIP Psalm 27:1,4,8
Leader: The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?
All: The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
Leader: One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life,
All: to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in his temple.
Leader: You have said, “Seek my face.”
All: My heart says to you, “Your face, Lord, do I seek.”
*PRAISE SONGS Magnificent, Marvelous, Matchless Love
PRAYER OF CONFESSION
All: O God of my exodus, great was the joy of Israel’s sons when Egypt died upon the shore. Far greater the joy when the redeemer’s enemy lay crushed in the dust. Jesus strides forth as the victor, conqueror of death, hell and all opposing might; He bursts the bands of death, tramples the powers of darkness down and lives forever. Jesus, my gracious surety, apprehended for payment of my debt, comes forth from the prison of the grave free, and triumphant over sin, Satan, and death. Show me herein the proof that his vicarious offering is accepted, that the claims of justice are satisfied, that the devil’s scepter is shattered, that his wrongful throne is leveled. Give me the assurance that in Christ I died, in him I rose, in his life I live, in his victory I triumph, in his ascension I shall be glorified. Gracious Redeemer, you who were lifted up upon a cross are ascended to highest heaven. You, who as a man of sorrows were crowned with thorns, are now as Lord of life wreathed with glory. Once, yours the deepest shame, no agony more bitter, no death more cruel. Now, no exaltation higher, no life more glorious, no advocate more effective. In your triumph you are leading captive your enemies behind you. What more could be done than you have done! Your death is my life, your resurrection my peace, your ascension my hope, your prayers my comfort. All glory and honor be yours, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
ASSURANCE OF PARDON Psalm 103:12
“…as far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us.”
CONSECRATION (We Surrender Our Lives to Christ)
*PSALM 26 (tune: How Sweet and Awesome Is the Place. CM)
THE OFFERING Proverbs 11:4
“Riches do not profit in the day of wrath, but righteousness delivers from death.”
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 2020, we are continuing to provide a basic Family Worship plan to help enable our families more regularly worship together during the week. In each weekly bulletin, we will provide a Daily Bible Reading plan from “M’Cheyne Daily Bible Reading Plan”, weekly questions from the Westminster Shorter Catechism, and a hymn for you to learn together.
Weekly Hymn: 717 Blessed the Man That Fears Jehovah
- Q47 What is forbidden in the first commandment? /
Answer: The first commandment forbids the denying, or not worshiping and glorifying, the true God as God, and our God; and the giving of that worship and glory to any other, which is due to him alone.
- Q48 What are we specially taught by these words before me in the first commandment? /
Answer: These words before me in the first commandment teach us, that God, who sees all things, taketh notice of, and is much displeased with, the sin of having any other God.

Updating Our Nursery: We are in the process of updating our church nursery and have created a registry list of items we need for our nursery on Amazon. A link for this registry was sent out on our church email chain. If you did not get the link and would like to help purchase items to help us as we minister to our little ones, please email Debbie Tuel at firstname.lastname@example.org
Women’s Bible Study: All women in the church are invited to participate in our Women’s Bible study on Contentment. In Contentment, Melissa Kruger considers what it really means to be content: to place our trust in our good and sovereign God. We will utilize Zoom video conferencing to conduct the study. An email will be sent in advance of each study with weblink and logon information. Our next study is on Saturday, June 27th at 9:00 am and will continue to meet every two weeks through July 25th. There is a study guide Contentment, by Melissa Kruger which will be used in conjunction with the study. The study guide is not required; however, it is available for free download or purchase on line at Ligonier Ministries
