Order of Worship
Sunday, July 5, 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 100 Holy, Holy, Holy…
*CALL TO WORSHIP Psalm 29:1-4, 9, 11
Leader: Ascribe to the Lord, O heavenly beings, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
All: Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name; worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness.
Leader: The voice of the Lord is over the waters; the God of glory thunders, the Lord, over many waters.
All: The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is full of majesty.
Leader: The voice of the Lord makes the deer give birth and strips the forests bare, and in his temple all cry, “Glory!”
All: May the Lord give strength to his people! May the Lord bless his people with peace!
*PRAISE SONGS Let Us Love And Sing And Wonder
Heal Us Emmanuel
PRAYER OF CONFESSION
All: Merciful God, You pardon all who truly repent and turn to you. We humbly confess our sins and ask your mercy. We have not loved you with a pure heart, nor have we loved our neighbor as ourselves. We have not done justice, loved kindness, or walked humbly with you, our God. Have mercy on us, O God, in your loving-kindness. In your great compassion, cleanse us from our sin. Create in us a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within us. Do not cast us from your presence, or take your Holy Spirit from us. Restore to us the joy of your salvation and sustain us with your bountiful Spirit through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
ASSURANCE OF PARDON 2 Corinthians 5:21
“For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.”
CONSECRATION (We Surrender Our Lives to Christ)

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, July 11th 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
If you have any questions, please contact Christine Stalnaker (CStalnaker786@cs.com)
Women in the Church – All women are invited to participate in our Summer Book Club. We will be reading the book “Ordinary People, Extraordinary Faith” by Joni Eareckson Tada. (You can order the book on Amazon.) We will be meeting the 2nd Monday of each month (July 13th and August 10th) most likely, via Zoom. If you have any questions, please email Christine Stalnaker (CStalnaker786@cs.com)
Faith Church Retreat: In the Lord’s providence, it appears that we need to cancel the retreat for this year. We found out this week we would have to share the retreat center with several other groups which would restrict our ability to spread out and have the room and facilities we need. There were several other factors driving our decision, but suffice it to say we think it best to go ahead and wait until next year. Lord willing, the 2021 Retreat will be a blessed time for us to be together.
Pastor Vacation: from June 29th – July 6th.
