Call to Worship
Psalm 46 selected verses
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way, though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea…
Come, behold the works of the LORD, how he has brought desolations on the earth…
‘Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!’ The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.

Call to Confession
Corporate Confession of Sin
The Worship Sourcebook
God of salvation, in Christ you have done great things—our hearts are filled with joy. By your power you have lifted us out of the wasteland of sin and brought us with joy into your kingdom. Salvation is your gift to us. But we confess that often we try to replace your gift with our own efforts. We try to complete what is already perfect; we try to earn what we already have. Forgive us of our foolishness. Help us to focus on your grace. Help us to live grateful lives. We ask this in the name of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
Silent Confession of Sin
Assurance of Pardon
‘Sing for joy, O heavens, and exult, O earth; break forth, O mountains, into singing! For the LORD has comforted his people and he will have compassion on his afflicted.’
"Rejoice in His Salvation"
Isaiah 25:6, 8-9
On this mountain the LORD of hosts will make for all peoples a feast of rich food, a feast of well-aged wine, of rich food full of marrow, of aged wine well refined.
He will swallow up death forever; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces, and the reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth, for the LORD has spoken. It will be said on that day, ‘Behold, this is our God; we have waited for him, that he might save us. This is the LORD; we have waited for him; let us be glad and rejoice in his salvation.’
Beware lest you say in your heart, ‘My power and the might of my hand have gotten me this wealth.’ You shall remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you power to get wealth, that he may confirm his covenant that he swore to your fathers, as it is this day.
