ORDER FOR THE PUBLIC WORSHIP of GOD

Trinity Season                   July 11, 2021                

*Responsive Call to Worship    (Psalm 51:15-17)

   O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth will declare Your praise.

            For You will not delight in sacrifice, or I would give it;

   You will not be pleased with a burnt offering.

            The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit;

            a broken and contrite heart, O God, You will not despise.

 

*Hymn                            “Love Divine, All Loves Excelling”

1. Love divine, all loves excelling Joy of heaven, to earth come down

    Fix in us thy humble dwelling  All Thy faithful mercies crown

    Jesus, Thou art all compassion Pure, unbounded love Thou art

    Visit us with thy salvation  Enter every trembling, every trembling heart

2. Breathe, oh, breathe Thy loving Spirit  Into every troubled breast

    Let us all in Thee inherit  Let us find the promised rest

    Take away the love of sinning  Alpha and Omega be

    End of faith, as its beginning  Set our hearts at liberty, at liberty

3. Come, Almighty, to deliver  Let us all Thy life receive

    Suddenly return, and never  Nevermore Thy temples leave

    Thee we would be always blessing  Serve Thee as Thy hosts above

    Pray and praise Thee without ceasing  Glory in Thy perfect, in Thy perfect love

4. Finish, then, Thy new creation  Pure and spotless let us be

    Let us see Thy great salvation Perfectly restored in Thee

    Changed from glory into glory  Til in heaven we take our place

    Til we cast our crowns before Thee  Lost in wonder, love, in wonder, love and praise

Ending: Wonder, love and praise (2x)

                                                                           

*Profession of Faith - Westminster Short Catechism #85

  What does God require of us, that we may escape his wrath and curse, due to us for sin?

            God requires of us faith in Jesus Christ, repentance unto life,

            with the diligent use of all the outward means

            whereby Christ communicates to us the benefits of redemption.

Corporate & Individual Confession of Sins

   God of all grace, forgive us for the ways that we have not resisted temptation.

   We doubt Your care and succumb too often to anxiety and fear.

   We are wearied by the guilt and shame of our past.

   Give us a new resolve to run to the Cross.

   Wash us clean with Your blood so that we are

   more thankful for Your mercies,

   more humble under Your correction,

   more zealous in Your service,

   more watchful against temptation,

   and more contented in our circumstances.

   Restore us to the joy of Your salvation

   and sustain us with Your bountiful Spirit

   through Jesus Christ, our Lord.

 

Assurance of the Lord’s Pardon (Psalm 51:9-10,12)

   Hide Your face from my sins,

            and blot out all my iniquities.

   Create in me a clean heart, O God,

            and renew a right spirit within me.

    Restore to me the joy of Your salvation,

            and uphold me with a willing spirit.

*You are invited to Stand when prompted.

 

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.
