ORDER FOR THE PUBLIC WORSHIP of GOD

 Maundy Thursday Chapel                   April 01, 2021 * 6:30pm                   

*Responsive Call to Worship    (Psalm 116:1,4-6,8,9,12-14)

    I love the LORD, because he has heard my voice and my pleas for mercy.

            Then I called on the name of the LORD: “O LORD, I pray, deliver my soul!”

  Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; our God is merciful.

            The LORD preserves the simple; when I was brought low, he saved me.

   For you have delivered my soul from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling;

            I will walk before the LORD in the land of the living.

   What shall I render to the LORD for all his benefits to me?

            I will lift up the cup of salvation

            and call on the name of the LORD,

            I will pay my vows to the LORD

            in the presence of all his people.

 

*Hymn #321                    “When I Survey the Wondrous Cross”

 

*Prayer of Adoration

 

*Profession of Faith - Nicene (Nicaeno-Constantinopolitan) Creed

We believe in one God, the Father almighty,

maker of heaven and earth,

of all things visible and invisible.

And in one Lord Jesus Christ,

the only Son of God,

begotten from the Father before all ages,

God from God, Light from Light,

         true God from true God, begotten, not made;

of the same essence as the Father.

Through him all things were made.

For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven;

he became incarnate by the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary,

and was made human.

He was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate;

he suffered and was buried.

The third day he rose again, according to the Scriptures.

He ascended to heaven

and is seated at the right hand of the Father.

He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead.

His kingdom will never end.

And we believe in the Holy Spirit,

the Lord, the giver of life.

He proceeds from the Father and the Son,

and with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified.

He spoke through the prophets.

We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic church.

We affirm one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.

We look forward to the resurrection of the dead,

and to life in the world to come. Amen.

New Guests - We are so glad to have the privilege of worshiping the Lord with you. Please fill out one of our “Guest Cards” found on the table in the Narthex. This will help us in responding to any of your questions or needs. You can place them in the offertory plate or hand it to our pastor.

 

The Lord’s Supper - We celebrate the Lord’s Supper every Sunday at Grace Covenant. All who trust in Jesus and Him alone for their salvation are invited to partake. Our custom is to distribute the elements processing forward by rows. After all are served, we then take the elements together. If you have a non-communing child, please bring them forward with you so Pastor John may pray for them. If you believe your child is ready to take Communion, please ask our Pastor about the process. 

 

Cry Room - This special room is located in the back of the sanctuary should you have need. It is well appointed with the option to clearly hear the service.
