ORDER FOR THE PUBLIC WORSHIP of GOD

Trinity Season                   August 01, 2021                      

*Responsive Call to Worship    (Psalm 54:1,2,4,6,7)

   O God, save me by Your Name, and vindicate me by Your might.

            O God, hear my prayer; give ear to the words of my mouth.

   Behold, God is my helper;

            The Lord is the upholder of my life.

   With a freewill offering I will sacrifice to You;

            I will give thanks to Your Name, O LORD, for it is good.

   For He has delivered me from every trouble,

            And my eye has looked in triumph on my enemies.

 

*Hymn #43                      “All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name”

                                                                           

*Profession of Faith - Westminster Short Catechism #88

    What are the outward and ordinary means whereby Christ communicates to us the benefits of redemption?

            The outward and ordinary means

            whereby Christ communicates to us

            the benefits of redemption are,

            His ordinances, especially the Word, sacraments, and prayer;

            all which are made effectual to the elect for salvation.

Affirmation of Holy Scripture (Psalm 119:173)

                Let your hand be ready to help me, for I have chosen your precepts.

 

*Hymn                                     “Begone Unbelief”

1. Begone unbelief, My Savior is near,

    And for my relief Will surely appear:

    By faith let me wrestle, with God in the storm

    And help me my Savior, the faith to adorn

    And help me my Savior, the faith to adorn

2. Though dark be my way, Since he is my guide,

    'Tis mine to obey, and His to provide;

    Though cisterns be broken, And creatures all fail,

    The word he has spoken will surely prevail.

    The word he has spoken will surely prevail.Chorus

Chorus: Begone unbelief, The Savior is here (3x)

             Though cisterns be broken And creatures all fail

             The word he has spoken will surely prevail

             The word he has spoken will surely prevail

3. Why should I complain, Of want or distress

    Temptation or pain? He told me no less

    The heirs of salvation, I know from his word

    Through much tribulation Must follow their Lord

    Through much tribulation Must follow their Lord (Chorus)

4. Since all that I meet will work for my good,

    The bitter is sweet, The medicine food;

    Though painful at present, will cease before long,

    And then, O! how glorious, The conqueror's song!

    And then, O! how glorious, The conqueror's song! (Chorus)

Corporate & Individual Confession of Sins

   O Covenant God, whose love is beyond understanding,

   we humbly ask Your forgiveness for the sins of this past week:

   for every covenant vow and holy command we have broken;

   for every weak and defiling thought to which our minds have given harbor;

   for every harsh and critical word spoken in haste and passion;

   for every seed of discord we have sown;

   for every opportunity lost to do good;

   and for every blessing thanklessly received.

   May Your Holy Spirit so rule our hearts

   that we experience anew the joy of abundant, eternal life

   and give ourselves fully to the lordship and mission of Jesus.

   It is in His matchless name and by the power of the Spirit we pray.

 

Assurance of the Lord’s Pardon (Romans 6:23)

 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

*Benediction with Congregational Response                “Three-fold Amen”

 

 

*You are invited to Stand when prompted.

 

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.
