ORDER FOR THE PUBLIC WORSHIP of GOD

Trinity Season                   June 13, 2021               

*Responsive Call to Worship    (Psalm 42:1,2,7,8,11)

     As a deer pants for flowing streams,

            So pants my soul for You, O God.

    My soul thirsts for God, for the Living God.

            When shall I come and appear before God?

    Deep calls to deep at the roar of your waterfalls;

            All Your breakers and Your waves have gone over me.

    By day the LORD commands His steadfast love, and at night His song is with me,

            Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me?

            Hope in God; for I shall again praise Him, my salvation and my God.

 

*Hymn                       “The Lord Will Provide”                                                                                                    Newton, Smith

   1. Though troubles assail me and dangers affright, Though friends should all fail and foes all unite;

       Yet one thing secures us, whatever betide, The scripture assures us the Lord will provide.

       The birds without barn or storehouse are fed From them let us learn to trust for our bread:

       His saints, what is fitting, shall ne’er be denied, So long as it’s written, the Lord will provide.

 

   2. We may, like the ships, by tempest be tossed On perilous deeps, but cannot be lost

       Though Satan enrages the wind and the tide, The promise engages, the Lord will provide.

       His call we obey, like Abram of old, Not knowing our way, but faith makes us bold;

       For though we are strangers we have a good Guide, And trust in all dangers, the Lord will provide.

 

   3. When Satan appears to stop up our path, and fills us with fears, we triumph by faith;

       He cannot take from us, though oft he has tried, This heart-cheering promise, the Lord will provide.

       He tells us we’re weak, our hope is in-vain, The good that we seek we ne’er shall obtain,

       But when such suggestions our spirits have plied, This answers all questions, the Lord will Provide.

 

   4. No strength of our own, or goodness we claim, Yet since we have known the Savior’s great Name;

       In this our strong tower for safety we hide, The Lord is our power, the Lord will provide.

      When life sinks apace and death is in view, This word of His grace shall comfort us through:

      No fearing or doubting with Christ on our side, We hope to die shouting, “The Lord will provide!”                               

 

*Profession of Faith - Westminster Shorter Catechism #79, 80, 81

   Which is the tenth commandment?

            ...Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife, nor his     

            manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbor's.

   What is required in the tenth commandment?

            ...full contentment with our own condition, with a right and charitable frame of spirit toward our

            neighbor, and all that is his.

   What is forbidden in the tenth commandment?

            ...all discontentment with our own estate, envying or grieving at the good of our neighbor,

            and all inordinate motions and affections to anything that is his.

Corporate & Individual Confession of Sins

  Gracious Heavenly Father, we are sinners in Your sight;

   Yet, in Christ, You are reconciled to Your rebellious children.

   Shamefully, we have experienced Your amazing grace toward us,

   But we have not loved You with our whole hearts nor our neighbors as ourselves.

   Forgive us for tolerating sin in the knowledge that grace abounds.

   Forgive our neglect of Your Word, Your direction, and Your priorities.

   The worship that You do not despise comes from a broken spirit and contrite heart before You.

   Therefore, according to Your steadfast love,

   wash us, cleanse us, and put new and right spirits within us,

   that we may bring glory to Your name, through Jesus Christ our Lord.

 

Assurance of the Lord’s Pardon (Psalm 42:5)

   Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me?

            Hope in God; for I shall again praise Him, my salvation

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.
