Order of Worship

Sunday, June 28, 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             Let The Nations Be Glad


*CALL TO WORSHIP                           Psalm 28:6-9

Leader: Blessed be the LORD! For he has heard the voice of my pleas for mercy.

All: The LORD is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts, and I am helped; my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him.

Leader: The LORD is the strength of his people; he is the saving refuge of his anointed.

All: Oh, save your people and bless your heritage! Be their shepherd and carry them forever.


*PRAISE SONGS        Let Us Love And Sing And Wonder

                                                 By Thy Mercy





All: Have mercy on me, O God, according to your unfailing love; according to your great compassion blot out my transgressions. Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin.  For I know my transgressions, and my sin is always before me. Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight, so that you are proved right when you speak and justified when you judge.  Surely I was sinful at birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me. Surely you desire truth in the inner parts; you teach me wisdom in the inmost place.  Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow. Let me hear joy and gladness; let the bones you have crushed rejoice.  Hide your face from my sins and blot out all my iniquity.  Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.  Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me.  Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.  Then I will teach transgressors your ways, and sinners will turn back to you.  Save me from bloodguilt, O God, the God who saves me, and my tongue will sing of your righteousness.  O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth will declare your praise. You do not delight in sacrifice, or I would bring it; you do not take pleasure in burnt offerings.  The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.




ASSURANCE OF PARDON                         Luke 18:13-14

“But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even lift up his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me, a sinner!’ I tell you, this man went down to his house justified, rather than the other. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted.” 


CONSECRATION (We Surrender Our Lives to Christ)


DEACON EMERITUS                                  Dwight Hutchinson


*PSALM 28 (tune: Tallis Canon)


THE OFFERING                                            Proverbs 11:25

“Whoever brings blessing will be enriched, and one who waters will himself be watered.”

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.
