Sermon                                 “God’s Greatest Loves: Jesus, His Son”                    Pastor John W. Uhl

                              

Confessing Our Need of Christ Together and Individually

   Eternal and merciful God, You have loved us with a love beyond our understanding,

   You have liberated us from darkness,

   and You have set us on paths of righteousness for your name’s sake.

   Yet we have strayed from Your way;

   we have sinned against You in thought, word, and deed,

   through what we have done and what we have left undone.

   As we remember Your lavish gift of Your grace, O God,

   we praise You and give You thanks that You forgive us yet again.

   Grant us now, we pray, the grace to die daily to sin

   and to rise daily to new life in Christ, who lives and reigns with You,

   and in whose strong name we pray.

 

Assurance of the Lord’s Pardon   (Psalm 130:3,4)

   If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand?

            But with you there is forgiveness, that you may be feared.

 

The Bread & The Cup  

 

*Hymn                                   “My Lord, I Did Not Choose You”                                  Condor, Smith                 

   Chorus: My Lord I did not choose You For that could never be

   My heart would still refuse You Had You not chosen me

 

   You took the sin that stained me Cleansed me, made me new

   Of old, You have ordained me That I should live in You

 

   Unless Your grace had called me And taught my opening mind

   The world would have enthralled me To heavenly glories blind

 

   My heart knows none above You  For Your rich grace I thirst

   I know that if I love You  You must have loved me first

 

*Benediction

 

*Congregational Response                    Three-fold Amen

                         

    

*You are invited to Stand when prompted by Pastor John.

 

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.
