Corporate Prayer of Confession with Individual Prayers of Confession

   O God, in Your amazing love, You have broken down every dividing wall

   between us and You and between us and each other.

   It is Your revealed will that all Your children should be one in Christ.

   Forgive us for dismissing Your love, neglecting Your will,

   and seeking our own well-being at the expense of our church family.

   Pardon our pride, our lack of faith, and our lack of understanding and charity,

   which are the causes of our divisions.

   Deliver us from our narrow-mindedness, from our bitterness, and from our prejudices.

   Save us from considering as normal that which is an offense to Your love.

   Change us by the power of the Holy Spirit, that we may desire what is good, love what You love,

   and do what You command through Jesus Christ our Lord.

 

Assurance of Divine Pardon  (Psalm Romans 5:8)

   God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

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.

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.

 

Ingram Extra - Join us after service in the Fellowship Hall for refreshment. If you have interest or questions about the day’s sermon, join Pastor John at the couches for a short Q&A with others.
