Call to Worship

Psalm 86:1-13

 

Incline your ear, O Lord, and answer me, for I am poor and needy.  Preserve my life, for I am godly; save your servant, who trusts in you—you are my God.

Be gracious to me, O Lord, for to you do I cry all the day. Gladden the soul of your servant, for to you, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.  For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving, abounding in steadfast love to all who call upon you.

Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer; listen to my plea for grace.  In the day of my trouble I call upon you, for you answer me.

There is none like you among the gods, O Lord, nor are there any works like yours.  All the nations you have made shall come and worship before you, O Lord, and shall glorify your name. For you are great and do wondrous things; you alone are God.

Teach me your way, O Lord, that I may walk in your truth; unite my heart to fear your name. I give thanks to you, O Lord my God, with my whole heart, and I will glorify your name forever. For great is your steadfast love toward me; you have delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol.

God Be Merciful (Psalm 51)

God, be merciful to me; on Thy grace I rest my plea
Plenteous in compassion Thou, blot out my transgressions now;
Wash me, make me pure within, cleanse, O cleanse me from my sin!
 
My transgressions I confess; grief and guilt my soul oppress.
I have sinned against Thy grace and provoked Thee to Thy face
I confess Thy judgment just, speechless, I Thy mercy trust
 
I am evil, born in sin, Thou desirest truth within
Thou alone my Savior art, teach Thy wisdom to my heart;
Make me pure, Thy grace bestow, wash me whiter than the snow
 
Broken, humbled to the dust by Thy wrath and judgment just,
Let my contrite heart rejoice and in gladness hear Thy voice
From my sins O hide Thy face, blot them out in boundless grace!
 
Gracious God, my heart renew, make my spirit right and true
Cast me not away from Thee, let Thy Spirit dwell in me;
Thy salvation’s joy impart, steadfast make my willing heart
 
Sinners then shall learn from me, and return, O God, to Thee
Savior all my guilt remove and my tongue shall sing Thy love
Touch my silent lips, O Lord, and my mouth shall praise accord!

Worshiping God through Prayer

 

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace
Where there is hatred, let me sow love
Where there is injury, pardon
Where there is doubt, faith
Where there is despair, hope
Where there is darkness, light
And where there is sadness, joy
O Divine Master, grant that I may
Not so much seek to be consoled as to console
To be understood, as to understand
To be loved, as to love
For it is in giving that we receive
And it's in pardoning that we are pardoned
And it's in dying that we are born to Eternal Life
Amen

Bond of Peace

  

One Lord, one faith, one baptism,
 one God and Father of all!
 There is one body, there is one Spirit,
 there is one hope to which we are called.
 
 One bought with one sacrifice
 By Christ, our Savior and King!
 United to Him, we are His body;
 Fullness of Him, who fills everything.
 
 Triune God, three yet one,
 Perfect God of unity,
 Unify us in the bond of peace.
 
 We’re called to be likeminded,
 Humble, loving, and true,
 As one in spirit, and one in purpose,
 As those whom God created anew!
 
 One Lord, one faith, one baptism,
 one God and Father of all!
 There is one body, there is one Spirit,
 there is one hope to which we are called.
 
 Triune God, three yet one,
 Perfect God of unity,
 Unify us in the bond of peace.

Worshiping God by Hearing His Word

Micah 6:6-8

Series: Church in the Time of COVID-19

Sermon: When Things are Uncertain, Walk humbly with God

“With what shall I come before the Lord, and bow myself before God on high?  Shall I come before him with burnt offerings, with calves a year old? Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams, with ten thousands of rivers of oil?  Shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?” He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

May the Mind of Christ My Savior

May the mind of Christ, my Savior, 
live in me from day to day, 
by his love and pow'r controlling 
all I do and say.

May the Word of God dwell richly 
in my heart from hour to hour, 
so that all may see I triumph 
only through his pow'r.

May the peace of God my Father 
rule my life in ev'rything, 
that I may be calm to comfort 
sick and sorrowing.

May the love of Jesus fill me 
as the waters fill the sea; 
him exalting, self abasing: 
this is victory.

May his beauty rest upon me
as I seek the lost to win,
and may they forget the channel,
seeing only him.

Benediction

1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 (ESV) 

 

Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is faithful; he will surely do it.
