The Order of Worship for June 17,2018
 

Gathering & Preparation – “Religious worship is to be given to God, the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost (cf. Matthew 4:10; John 5:23; 2 Corinthians 13:14); and to him alone; not to angels, saints, or any other creature (cf. Romans 1:25; Colossians 2:18); and, since the fall, not without a Mediator; nor in the mediation of any other but of Christ alone (cf. John 14:6; 1 Timothy 2:5)” (Westminster Confession of Faith 21.2).

Prelude – Hymn #485: O Thou That Hear’st When Sinners Cry 

*Call to Worship

*Hymn #76                  Praise, My Soul, the King of Heaven 

*Prayer of Adoration

*Affirmation of Faith – Westminster Confession of Faith XIII (Trinity Hymnal p.856)

They, who are once effectually called, and regenerated, having a new heart, and a new spirit created in them, are further sanctified, really and personally, through the virtue of Christ’s death and resurrection, by his Word and Sprit dwelling in them: the dominion of the whole body of sin is destroyed, and the several lusts thereof are more and more weakened and mortified; and they more and more quickened and strengthened in all saving graces, to the practice of true holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord.

This sanctification is throughout, in the whole man; yet imperfect in this life, there abiding still some remnants of corruption in every part; whence ariseth a continual and irreconcilable war, the flesh lusting against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh.

In which war, although the remaining corruption, for a time, may much prevail; yet, through the continual supply of strength from the sanctifying Spirit of Christ, the regenerate part doth overcome; and so, the saints grow in grace, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

Scripture Reading – John 13:1-17

Unison Prayer of Confession

Father, we have sinned against heaven and against you. We are not worthy to be called your children. We have not loved you with all our heart, nor our neighbors as ourselves. We have heard the good news of Christ, but have failed to share it with others. We turn to you again. Have mercy on us, bring us back to yourself as those who once were dead but now have life through Christ our Lord.
