Call to Worship
There is none like you among the gods, O Lord, nor are there any works like yours.
All the nations you have made shall come and worship before you, O Lord, and shall glorify your name. For you are great and do wondrous things; you alone are God.
Teach me you way, O LORD, that I may walk in your truth; unite my heart to fear your name.
I give thanks to you, O Lord my God, with my whole heart, and I will glorify your name forever and ever.

Call to Confession
‘My son, give glory to the LORD God of Israel and give praise to him. And tell me now what you have done; do not hide it from me.’
Corporate Confession of Sin
O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth will declare your praise. For you will not delight in sacrifice, or I would give it; you will not be pleased with a burnt offering. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.

PCA Book of Church Order 54-2
It is both a privilege and a duty, plainly enjoined in the Bible, to make regular, weekly, systematic and proportionate offerings for the support of religion and for the propagation of the Gospel in our own and foreign lands, and the relief of the poor. This should be done as an exercise of grace and an act of worship, and at such time during the service
as may be deemed expedient by the Session.
