Responsive Call to Worship    (Psalm 105:1-8)

   Oh give thanks to the LORD; call upon his name; make known his deeds among the peoples!

            Sing to him, sing praises to him; tell of all his wondrous works!

   Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the LORD rejoice!

            Seek the LORD and his strength; seek his presence continually!

   Remember the wondrous works that he has done, his miracles, and the judgments he uttered, O offspring of

   Abraham, his servant, children of Jacob, his chosen ones!

            He is the LORD our God; his judgments are in all the earth. He remembers his covenant forever.

*Affirmation of Faith                        

   What effect did the sin of Adam have on all people? We are all born guilty and sinful.

   How sinful are you by nature? I am corrupt in every part of my being.

   What is the sinful nature that we inherit from Adam called? Original sin.

   Can anyone go to heaven with this sinful nature? No. Our hearts must be changed before we can believe in Jesus & go.

Corporate Prayer of Confession with Individual Prayers of Confession

   Gracious and holy God, we praise You as the triune God of love and life

   who lives in perfect unity.

   Though Jesus prayed that we would be one, we are a people divided

   against ourselves as we cling to the false values, priorities, and commitments of this world.

   We repent of our narcissistic preoccupation

   that has ruptured our relationship jawithwith You and others.

   May Your Spirit convict and heal us by showing us again the cross of Jesus

   which is mighty to subdue, comfort, and save us.

   For we pray in Jesus’ name and by the power of the Holy Spirit.

 

Assurance of Divine Pardon  (Colossians 1:13,14)

  He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son,

   in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

 

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.
