O for a Thousand Tongues to Sing - #141 Lighting of the Candles Placement of the Bible Prayer of Confession Merciful God, we acknowledge today that our hearts are deceptive and we do not fully know what lies within us. We are capable of living with anger and masking it with a smile. We can hide our bitterness while also feeding it with our thoughts and memories. We ask for your grace to make us whole so that who we truly are will be what others see. Give us your very heart by the power of your Spirit as we make our silent confessions . . . Assurance of God’s Forgiveness
Pastoral Prayer and the Lord’s Prayer Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, And forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors, And lead us not into temptation, But deliver us from evil For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen. Offering Our Gifts
I’d Rather Have Jesus I’d rather have Jesus than silver or gold; I’d rather be His than have riches untold; I’d rather have Jesus than houses or lands; I’d rather be true to His nail-pierced hand Than to be the king of a vast domain, And be held in sin’s dread sway; I’d rather have Jesus than anything This world affords today.
I’d rather have Jesus than men’s applause; I’d rather be faithful to His dear cause; I’d rather have Jesus than worldwide fame; I’d rather be true to His holy name. Than to be the king of a vast domain, And be held in sin’s dread sway; I’d rather have Jesus than anything This world affords today.
My Hope is Built on Nothing Less - #368 My hope is built on nothing less Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness. I dare not trust the sweetest frame, But wholly lean on Jesus’ Name.
Listen to God’s Word
On Christ the solid Rock I stand, All other ground is sinking sand; All other ground is sinking sand.
