ORDER FOR THE PUBLIC WORSHIP of  GOD

 Fourth Sunday in Easter                 May 12, 2019

                       

 

Responsive Call to Worship    (Psalm 36:5-10)

   Your steadfast love, O LORD, extends to the heavens, your faithfulness to the clouds.

            Your righteousness is like the mountains of God; your judgments are like the great deep;

            man and beast you save, O LORD.

   How precious is your steadfast love, O God! The children of mankind take refuge in the shadow of your wings.

            They feast on the abundance of your house, and you give them drink from the river

            of your delights.

   For with you is the fountain of life; in your light do we see light.

            Oh, continue your steadfast love to those who know you, and your righteousness to the

            upright of heart!

 

*Hymn #11                “Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing”           Nettleton

*Affirmation of Faith                        

   What is sin? Sin is any lack of conformity to, or transgression of, the law of God.

   What is meant by lack of conformity? Not being or doing what God requires.

   What is meant by transgression? Doing what God forbids.

   What does every sin deserve? The wrath and curse of God.

Corporate Prayer of Confession with Individual Prayers of Confession

   Holy God and Father of all who trust in You, we are Your redeemed people,

   yet at times we refuse to live in the freedom that is ours.

   We are Your loved people, yet we spurn You by our desires for other loves.

   You call us to obedience, yet we question You and Your ways.

   Therefore, we repent and ask Your forgiveness for the travesty of our rebellion against You.

   Cleanse us with the blood of Your Son, which was shed for us. Show us how to build

   our lives on the only sure foundation, Jesus Christ our faithful Savior...

 

Assurance of Divine Pardon  (Romans 4:25-5:1)

   (He) was delivered up for our trespasses and raised for our justification. Therefore, since we have been justified  by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.

 

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.

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.
