Meditation: Psalm 89:1–14 Silent Prayer [197]

God welcomes us, we confess our sins and praise him:

*The Lord’s Greeting    *Invocation

*God’s law: Romans 13:8–10

*Prayer of confession in unison (1 John 1:8−10)

If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

*Assurance of forgiveness: 1 John 2:1−2

*Hymn 3 “Give to Our God Immortal Praise”

We praise God and listen to his Word:

God speaks in the reading and preaching of his Word:

*New Testament Scripture reading: Matthew 5:17–37

God seals his grace in the sacrament of the Lord’s Supper:

*Hymn 59 “Forever Settled in the Heavens”

The sacrament of the Lord’s Supper [157, 162]

God blesses us and sends us to serve him:

Welcome as we worship God today

We invite those who have confessed their faith in Christ in a Bible-believ­ing church, and are not under discipline, to partake of the Lord’s Sup­per with us. The communion tray contains both wine (the inner rings) and grape juice (the outer ring).

We welcome children in our worship services. The nursery room is available for pre-school children if needed. Children’s bulletins are available for your child to use during the service, if you wish.
