Order of Worship – Faith Fellowship Community Church
Preparation for Worship – January 17, 2021
 
 
Gathering & PreparationA song of ascents. Out of the depths I cry to you, LORD; Lord, hear my voice. Let your ears be attentive to my cry for mercy. If you, LORD, kept a record of sins, Lord, who could stand? But with you there is forgiveness, so that we can, with reverence, serve you. I wait for the LORD, my whole being waits, and in his word I put my hope. (Psalm 130:1-5)

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.

Pandemic Guidelines Regarding In-Person Corporate Worship
 
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 some other in-person activities, with certain restrictions in place.  Our enhanced live-stream of our worship service is available for those who cannot or should not attend.  For those who do attend in person, please adhere to the following guidelines:
 
  • Please enter the Church using the front, Main Street doors and wait for an usher to seat you.
  • Please wear a mask as you enter, move about, and exit the building (not required for children under 12) and maintain social distancing.
  • Please wait to be seated by an usher.  We have a staggered seating arrangement that allows the congregation to maintain social distancing and maintain less than 25% room capacity.
  • Once you are seated in the sanctuary, it is your choice to remove your mask or leave it on.  Several pews in the rear of the sanctuary are reserved for those who want to wear a mask during the entire service and sit among others who are masked as well.
  • 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.
