ORDER OF WORSHIP

11-25-18

Prelude

Greeting and Announcements

Meditation

This is where Christology is rooted: the Father gifts the Son with a world and a Bride (the Church); the Spirit perfects the creation of the world and the creation of the Bride, and the Son gives back these divine gifts to the Father in the fellowship of the Spirit. That is the life of the Holy Trinity: loving, giving and receiving, and giving back the precious gift of infinite love.

Douglas Kelley, Systematic Theology, Volume 2: The Beauty of Christ: A Trinitarian Vision (Ross-shire, Scotland: Mentor, 2014), 37. 

Call to Worship          Psalm 95:1 (Responsive)

Pastor:             O come, let us sing to the LORD; let us make a joyful noise to the Rock of our salvation! Let us come into His presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to Him with songs of praise!

Congregation:  For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods. In His hand are the depths of the earth; the heights of the mountains are His also. The sea is His, for He made it, and His hands formed the dry land.

Pastor:             Oh come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the LORD, our Maker!

Congregation:  For He is our God, and we are the people of His pasture, and the sheep of His hand.

Affirmation of Faith         Westminster Confession of Faith 33.2

The end of God’s appointing this day is for the manifestation of the glory of His mercy, in the eternal salvation of the elect; and of His justice, in the damnation of the reprobate, who are wicked and disobedient. For then shall the righteous go into everlasting life, and receive that fullness of joy and refreshing, which shall come from the presence of the Lord; but the wicked who know not God, and obey not the gospel of Jesus Christ, shall be cast into eternal torments, and be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of His power.

Come, ye thankful people, come, raise the song of harvest home:

All is safely gathered in, ere the winter storms begin;

God, our Maker doth provide for our wants to be supplied:

Come to God’s own temple, come, raise the song of harvest home.

All the world is God’s own field, fruit unto His praise to yield;

Wheat and tares together sown, unto joy or sorrow grown:

First the blade, and then the ear, then the full corn shall appear:

Lord of harvest, grant that we wholesome grain and pure may be.

  • Romans 11:33-36

    Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and how inscrutable His ways!
    For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been His counselor? Or who has given a gift to Him that he might be repaid?
    For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be glory forever. Amen.
