CALL TO WORSHIP
This week, we will begin our service by reading scripture from Colossians 1:15-17, where we see how Jesus alone is above all.
15 He (Jesus) is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. 16 For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. 17 And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.
In response, we will sing the song Rejoice.
CONFESSION OF SIN
After welcoming one another, we will then confess our our desperate need for a Savior to wash us clean of our sin as we sing the song Rock of Ages.

ASSURANCE OF SALVATION
Because we are sinful, it is obvious that we need a Savior. Thanks be to God that we have a Savior who is a Rock and a Fortress. The lines from the song The Solid Rock (My Hope Is Built) are worth clinging to to remind us that in Christ our salvation is sure:
Dressed in his righteousness alone / faultless to stand before the throne
On Christ the solid rock I stand / All other ground is sinking sand
The Solid Rock (My Hope Is Built)
We then continue in our study of the book of Ephesians with Chapter 6:18-20
18 praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints, 19 and also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains, that I may declare it boldly, as I ought to speak.
We will remember what God has done through Jesus by participating together in Communion and singing songs that remind us that we have been saved.
