As we gather in worship on the Lordís Day, morning and evening, it is our privilege to meet with our risen Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in a covenant renewal service.  God is the Great King, and as such is worthy of all worship.  He summons us into His Presence to worship Him.  Because we are covenant-breakers, having transgressed His perfect Law, we confess our sins before Him.  We then find comfort once again in the Gospel, as the work of Jesus Christ is proclaimed to us.  Thus we are renewed to serve Him with joy and confidence, knowing that there is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.  We serve Him in worship, because He has first served us.  We then go forth from corporate worship to serve Him in all of life, as we seek to do all things to the glory of God.

Morning Worship 9:30 AM

 

Evening Worship 5:00 PM

Prelude

Call to Worship
God Calls us into His own presence

Votum & Salutation
We confess that our help is in the name of the Lord our God and He then greets us with grace, mercy, and peace

Opening Hymn of Praise

Reading of the Law & NT Summary
The Law teaches us of our sin, drives us to look outside of ourselves to Christ Jesus for our salvation, and is our guide to gratitude for such a great salvation.

We Respond to God's Law
We confess our sin and look to Jesus through prayer or song

Declaration of Pardon
With the words of the Gospel from scripture, God declares to all who have confessed their sins, believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and put their faith in Him alone, that they are fully absolved of all their sins and are fully clothed with Christ's righteousness.  We are thus assured that we are not under the Law but under grace and are seated in heavenly places with Him.

Congregational Prayer
The pastor prays to God on behalf of the congregation.  We approach God's throne boldly knowing that our sins are forgiven and that Jesus Christ, our Advocate, is seated at His right hand

The Giving of our Tithes and Offerings
We respond to the gift of salvation with gifts from our abundance, giving to God a portion of what rightfully belongs to Him

Hymn of Preparation
We prepare to hear god's Word preached

The Reading of God's Word
God's Word is publicly read.

The Preaching of God's Word
The preaching of Christ and Him crucified is central in our worship.  Here God proclaims the Gospel of Jesus Christ to us by His Spirit through His messenger, the preacher.  This is the primary way God imparts grace.  The Spirit works in preaching to either create faith, confirm faith, or further one's condemnation.

The Sacrament of the Lord's Supper
When celebrated, this Holy Communion confirms what we have just heard in the preaching of the Word, it is a "Visible Word."  We believe that Christ is Spiritually present in the bread and wine.  Through these visible signs and seals of  God's love and grace we Spiritually partake of Christ and His benefits by faith and are assured of the promises and blessings of God's covenant

Hymn of Response
We respond to the Word (and Sacrament) with a song of praise and thanksgiving for the gift of salvation in Christ Jesus

Doxology
We unite our voices in praise and adoration one final time before God dismisses us.

Benediction
The last word in our worship is the triune God's Word as He assures us that we leave not under His wrath, but under His grace.
