ORDER FOR THE PUBLIC WORSHIP of GOD

Trinity Season                  July 19, 2020             

*Responsive Call to Worship    (Psalm 78:4-8)

    We will not hide them from their children, but tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the LORD,

   and His might, and the wonders that He has done.

            He established a testimony in Jacob and appointed a Law in Israel,

            which He commanded our fathers to teach to their children,

   That the next generation might know them, the children yet unborn, and arise and tell them to their children,

            So that they should set their hope in God and not forget the works of God,

            but keep His Commandments;

   And that they should not be like their fathers,

            a stubborn and rebellious generation, a generation whose heart was not steadfast,

            whose spirit was not faithful to God.

 

*Hymn #45                            “Crown Him with Many Crowns”                                              

 

*Profession of Faith - Westminster Shorter Catechism Q? 5,6

Are there more Gods than one?

            There is but one only, the living and true God.

How many persons are there in the Godhead?

            There are three persons in the Godhead; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost;

            and these three are one God, the same in substance, equal in power and glory.

 

Psalter Lesson                              Matthew 135:1-21     (pew Bible page 519)

 

Affirmation of Holy Scripture - Psalm 119:126,127

   It is time for the LORD to act, for Your Law has been broken.

            Therefore we love Your Commandments above gold, above fine gold.

 

*Hymn                                   “Let Us Love and Sing and Wonder”                                       Newton, Taylor

1. Let us love and sing and wonder Let us praise the Saviors name

    He has hushed the Law’s loud thunder He has quenched Mount Sinai’s flame

    He has washed us with His blood (3X) He has brought us nigh to God

2. Let us love the Lord Who bought us Pitied us when enemies

    Called us by His grace and taught us  Gave us ears and gave us eyes

    He has washed us with His blood (3X) He presents our souls to God

3. Let us sing though fierce temptation Threatens hard to bear us down

    For the Lord, our strong salvation, Holds in view the conqueror’s crown

    He, Who washed us with His blood, (3X) Soon will bring us home to God

4. Let us wonder grace and justice  Join and point to mercy's store

    When through grace in Christ our trust is  Justice smiles and asks no more

    He Who washed us with His blood (3X) Has secured our way to God

5. Let us praise and join the chorus Of the saints enthroned on high

    Here they trusted Him before us  Now their praises fill the sky

    Thou hast washed us with Thy blood (3X) Thou art worthy Lamb of God

6. Yes, we praise Thee, gracious Savior  Wonder, love, and bless Thy Name.

    Pardon, Lord our poor endeavor  Pity for Thou knowest our frame

    Wash our souls and songs with blood (3X) For by Thee, we come to God

Sermon                                 “God’s Greatest Loves: He Loves All He Does”                    Pastor John W. Uhl

                              

Confessing Our Need of Christ Together and Individually

   Gracious Heavenly Father, we are sinners in Your sight;

   yet, in Christ, You have reconciled us to Yourself.

   Shamefully, we have experienced Your amazing grace toward us,

   but we have not loved You with our whole hearts

   nor our neighbors as ourselves.

   We confess that we often honor Your Son with our lips

   when our hearts are far from You.

   Forgive us for our hypocrisy and formality in religion.

   Forgive our neglect of Your Word, Your direction, and Your priorities.

   Forgive us for tolerating sin in the knowledge that grace abounds.

   The worship that You do not despise

   comes from a broken spirit and contrite heart.

   Therefore, according to Your steadfast love,

   wash us, cleanse us, and put new and right spirits within us

   that we may bring glory to Your name, through Jesus Christ we pray.

 

Assurance of the Lord’s Pardon   (1 Peter 2:24,25)

   He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness.

   By his wounds you have been healed. For you were straying like sheep,

   but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.

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.
