ORDER FOR THE PUBLIC WORSHIP of  GOD

 Second Sunday in Easter                 April 28, 2019

                       

 

Responsive Call to Worship    (Psalm 107:1-3,5-8)

   Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever!

            Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, whom he has redeemed from trouble and

            gathered in from the lands, from the east and from the west, from the north

            and from the south.

   Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress. 

            Let them thank the LORD for his steadfast love, for his wondrous works to

            the children of man!

   For he satisfies the longing soul, and the hungry soul he fills with good things.

 

*Hymn #356                         “Redeemed, How I Love to Proclaim It”

 

*Prayer of Adoration

 

*Affirmation of Faith                        

   In what condition did God make Adam and Eve? He made them holy and happy.

   What covenant did God make with Adam? The covenant of life.

   What is a covenant? A relationship that God establishes with us and guarantees by his word.

 

Children’s Message               (ages 3 and Up)

 

*Hymn #399                                     “We are God’s People”

 

Corporate Prayer of Confession with Individual Prayers of Confession

   Heavenly Father, we humbly confess that we are an anxious and fearful people.

   We do not trust You as we should, and we often try to control our circumstances

   to prevent hardships and pain. We are slow to seek You in prayer,

   weak in our perseverance, and quick to forget Your faithfulness to us,

   Your power, and Your all-sufficient grace. Forgive us for the folly of our self-trust.

   Forgive us for seeking our self-preservation rather than Your glory.

   Forgive us for doubting Your goodness,Your strength, and Your salvation.

   Renew our minds and hearts that we might walk by faith and not by sight.

   By Your mercy, keep us wholly devoted to Christ and cause us to endure to the end,

   that we might receive Your great salvation. Through Jesus Christ we pray.

 

Assurance of Divine Pardon  (Ephesians 1:7,8)

            In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses,

            according to the riches of his grace, which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight.

 

 

 

Offertory & Prayer of Thanksgiving  

Praise God from Whom all blessings flow, Praise Him, all creatures here below. Praise Him above, ye heavenly host. Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost. Amen.

 

Lesson from the Revelation                Revelation  6:1-8              pew Bible pg. 1031

 

Affirmation of Holy Scripture (from Psalm 119:29)

   Put false ways far from me and graciously teach me your law!

New Guests We are so glad you are here worshiping the Lord with us. If you will, please fill out an Information Card found in the back, so we can get to know you a little. These can be placed in the offering plate or handed to a Greeter or Pastor John. 

 

Cry Room/Nursery –Please be assured that we do want your children in Worship with Us.  But,  we have now equipped a very pleasant, clean & comfortable “cry room” for families with small children to use as needed.   It is located at the right of the sanctuary and is equipped with everything needed (including Audio) for events happening in the sanctuary. Entry to the room is gained from inside the sanctuary itself or can be accessed through the library.

 

Ingram Extra - Please join us immediately after service for some refreshment in the Fellowship Hall. This is an informal time to get to know each other better. During this short-time, we usually hear something practical from Pastor John and are able to share our prayer requests together.

 

 

The Lord’s Supper - We celebrate the Lord’s Supper each Sunday at Ingram. All who sincerely trust in Jesus Christ and Him alone, for the forgiveness of sin, are invited to partake. Our custom is to distribute the elements processing forward by rows. When everyone is served, then we will take the elements together. For children not yet taking communion, 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 Pastor John about the process.
