ORDER FOR THE PUBLIC WORSHIP of GOD

Trinity Season                  September 20, 2020            

*Responsive Call to Worship    (Psalm 19:1-3)

   The heavens declare the glory of God,

            and the sky above proclaims His handiwork.

   Day to day pours out speech, and night to night reveals knowledge.

            There is no speech, nor are there words, whose voice is not heard.

 

*Hymn #143                                     “This is My Father’s World”                                            Martin Luther                  

 

*Profession of Faith - Westminster Shorter Catechism Q? 21

   Who is the Redeemer of God's elect?

            The only Redeemer of God's elect is the Lord Jesus Christ,

            who, being the eternal Son of God, became man,

            and so was, and continueth to be,

            God and man in two distinct natures, and one person, forever.

 

Lesson from the Law                  Exodus 3:1-9 

 

Affirmation of Holy Scripture - Hebrews 1:1-2

    Long ago, at many times and in many ways,

   God spoke to our fathers by the prophets,

   but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son,

   whom he appointed the heir of all things,

   through whom also he created the world.

Sermon                     “God’s ‘Do it Himself’ Projects”                                                 Rev Ray Tear

                              

Confessing Our Need of Christ Together and Individually

   Gracious Father, forgive us for the ways

   that we have doubted Your goodness and care,

   especially in our times of affliction.

   Pardon us for living to make our names great instead of Yours.

   We confess that we have lived

   to accomplish our will more than Yours.

   We are consumed more with our kingdoms than building Yours.

   May Jesus’ shed blood make us more thankful for Your mercies;

   more humble under Your correction; more zealous in Your service;

   more watchful against temptation; more contented in our circumstances;

   and more useful in Your service, for Jesus’ sake, Amen.

 

Assurance of the Lord’s Pardon   (1 John 1:9)

    If we confess our sins,

   He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins

   and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

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.
