We gather every Sunday at 9AM and 10:45AM to worship Jesus through reading Scripture, prayer, hearing the Word taught and celebrating the Lord’s Supper. For the Christian, the worship of Jesus is not isolated to Sunday morning, but happens throughout the week. In an effort to help you prepare for the gathering of the saints this Sunday morning, please take time to read, listen and pray.
CALL TO WORSHIP
We will begin our service praising God for his greatness. This week we will read from The Valley of Vision: A Collection of Puritan Prayers. You may purchase this book here. Read the prayer below in preparation for our time of praying corporately.
Three in one, one in three, God of my salvation, heavenly Father, blessed Son, eternal Spirit: I adore you as one being, one essence, one God in three distinct persons, for bringing sinners to your knowledge and to your kingdom.
O Father, you have loved me and sent Jesus to redeem me; O Jesus, you have loved me and assumed my nature, she your own blood to wash away my sins, crafted righteousness to cover my unworthiness; O Holy Spirit, you have loved me and entered my heart, implanted there eternal life, revealed to me the glories of Jesus.
Three persons and one God, I bless and praise you, for love so unmerited, so unspeakable, so wondrous, so mighty to save the lost and raise them to glory.
O Father, I thank you that in fullness of grace you have given me to Jesus, to be his sheep, jewel, portion; O Jesus, I thank you that in fullness of grace you have accepted, adopted, bound me; O Holy Spirit, I thank you that in fullness of grace you have exhibited Jesus as my salvation, implanted faith within me, subdued my stubborn heart, made me one with him forever.
O Father, you are enthroned to hear my prayers; O Jesus, your hand is outstretched to take my petitions; O Holy Spirit, you are willing to help my infirmities, to show me my need, to supply words, to pray within me, to strengthen me that I do not grow weary in my earnest supplication.
O triune God, who commands the universe, you have commanded me to ask for those things that concern your kingdom and my soul. Let me live and pray as one baptized into your threefold name.
CONFESSION OF SIN
After welcoming one another, we will then confess our sins and remember that we have forgiveness through Jesus’ work on the cross.
By His Grace
ASSURANCE OF SALVATION
We will then remind one another that our ultimate hope is found in Jesus.
Just As I Am
This Sunday, we continue our series on the book of Acts. This week we will study Acts 17:16-34. Read along with us.
We will then participate together in the Lord’s Supper, remembering the finished work of the cross, and rejoicing in the grace and mercy shown to us in and through Jesus.
