Greeting and Announcements

Meditation

And the catholic faith is this: that we worship one God in Trinity, and Trinity in unity.—from The Creed of Saint Athanasius

Call to Worship          Luke 10:21

In that same hour He rejoiced in the Holy Spirit and said, ‘I thank You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to little children; yes, Father, for such was Your gracious will.’

Invocation

*Hymn # 101          “Come, Thou Almighty King”

 Call to Confession          1 Corinthians 7:19

For neither circumcision counts for anything nor uncircumcision, but keeping the commandments of God.

Prayer of Confession

Assurance of Pardon          1 Corinthians 7:20-24

Each one should remain in the condition in which he was called.  Were you a slave when called?  Do not be concerned about it.  (But if you can gain your freedom, avail yourself of the opportunity.)  For he who was called in the Lord as a slave is a freedman of the Lord.  Likewise he who was free when called is a slave of Christ.  You were bought with a price, do not become slaves of men.  So, brothers, in whatever condition each was called, there let him remain with God.

*Hymn Supplement pg. 40          “How Deep the Father’s Love for Us”

*Old and New Testament Reading

O.T.:  Law: Exodus 3:13-17 (“I Am,” the Name of God)

         Prophets: Isaiah 42:8 (The Unique Glory of God in His Name)

         Writings: Psalm 113 (Praise the Name of the LORD!)

N.T.: Gospels: Matthew 28:19 (Baptized in the Name of the Triune God)

 *Pastor: This is the Word of our God.

*Congregation: The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God stands forever.

Affirmation of Faith          The Nicene Creed

We believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible.

And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all worlds; God of God, Light of Light, Very God of Very God; begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father, by whom all things were made.

Who, for us men and for our salvation, came down from heaven, and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary, and was made man; and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate; He suffered, and was buried; and the third day He rose again, according to the Scriptures; and ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of the Father; and He shall come again, with glory, to judge the living and the dead; whose kingdom shall have no end.

And we believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of Life; who proceeds from the Father and the Son; who with the Father and the Son together is worshiped and glorified; who spoke by the prophets.

And we believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.  We acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins; and we look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come.                                             Amen.

    Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and how inscrutable His ways!
