Gathering & Preparation  “The end of public worship is the glory of God. His people should engage in all its several parts with an eye single to His glory. Public worship has as its aim the building of Christ’s Church by the perfecting of the saints and the addition to its membership of such as are being saved – all to the glory of God. Through public worship on the Lord’s day Christians should learn to serve God all the days of the week in their every activity, remembering, whether they eat or drink, or whatever they do, to do all to the glory of God.
(1 Corinthians 10:31)” (Book of Church Order 47-3).

Unison Prayer of Confession   Almighty God our Father, we humbly seek your forgiveness of our many sins. Forgive us for doubting that you are indeed good, and that you mean to do us good. Forgive us for the sins that have proceeded from doubting your goodness – our apathy toward your Word and your world, our neglect of prayer, our obsession with our appetites, our callousness toward our neighbors. Cleanse us and change us through the finished work of your dear Son, Jesus Christ our Savior.
