Order of Worship – Faith Fellowship Community Church

The Order of Worship for August 14, 2022

Gathering & Preparation

Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is. And do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery, but be filled with the Spirit, addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart (Ephesians 5:15-19)

Holy and merciful God, in your presence we confess our sinfulness, our shortcomings, and our offenses against you. You alone know how often we have sinned in wandering from your ways, in wasting your gifts, in forgetting your love. Have mercy on us, O Lord, for we are ashamed and sorry for all we have done to displease you. Forgive our sins, and help us to live in your light and walk in your ways, for the sake of Jesus Christ, our Savior.

Guidelines Regarding In-Person Corporate Worship – May 18, 2021
 
The Session & Deacons are deeply grateful to the Westminster church family for your prayers, patience, and support as we have sought wisdom in applying the recommendations of governing authorities regarding the pandemic.  We are having in-person corporate worship in the sanctuary on the Lord’s Day along with other in-person activities.  Our enhanced live-stream of our worship service is available for those who cannot attend.  For those who do attend in person, please adhere to the following guidelines:
 
  • Masks are optional.
  • Several pews in the rear of the sanctuary are reserved for those who desire to wear a mask during the entire service and sit among others who are masked as well.
  • Please enter the Church using the front, Main Street doors and wait for an usher to seat you.
  • Please wait to be seated by an usher in order to maintain our staggered seating arrangement.
  • Child care available for ages birth – 2 in our upstairs nursery.
  • Children’s Worship is available midway through the service for preschoolers and kindergartners.
  • An offering plate is located outside the sanctuary doors for your use since we will not be passing offering plates during the service.
 
We are thankful to be together in the fellowship of the church family; and yet acknowledge it is wise for some to stay at home. It is important for us to love one another well, in recognition that we have all been experiencing this season of life under God’s perfect providence. In all circumstances let us love the Lord and love one another.
