Order of Worship – Faith Fellowship Community Church

Gathering & Preparation

Praise the LORD, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name. Praise the LORD, my soul, and forget not all his benefits – who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. The LORD works righteousness and justice for all the oppressed (Psalm 103:1-6).

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.

Updated Pandemic 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.
