God Summons Us
The Psalmist leads us in reflecting the Glory of the lord.

Call to Worship
Leader: Many are the sorrows of the wicked,
All: but steadfast love surrounds the one who trusts in the LORD.

Leader: Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, O righteous,
All: and shout for joy, all you upright in heart!

Songs of Praise
Our praise is to the God who is faithful in His lovingkindness.

Is He Worthy
God Sanctifies Us
We confess as a way of leaning into the Holy Spirit’s sanctifying work in our lives.

Call to Confession

From Psalm 32
1 Blessed is the one whose transgression is forgiven,
whose sin is covered. 2 Blessed is the man against whom the Lord counts no iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no deceit. 5 I acknowledged my sin to you, and I did not cover my iniquity;6 I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,”

Silent Confession

Unison Confession

Merciful God; we confess that we have sinned against you
in thought, word, and deed, by what we have done, and by what we have left undone.
We have not loved you with our whole heart and mind and strength.
We have not loved our neighbors as ourselves.
In your mercy forgive what we have been, help us amend what we are, and direct what we shall be, so that we may delight in your will and walk in your ways, to the glory of your holy name.
Songs of Praise (cont.)

Westminster Shorter Catechism, Questions 91, 96 and 97
Leader: Q 91: How do the sacraments become effectual means of salvation?

All: A. The sacraments become effectual means of salvation, not from any virtue in them, or in him that doth administer them; but only by the blessing of Christ, and the working of His Spirit in them that by faith receive them.

Leader: Q 96. What is the Lord’s Supper?

All: A. The Lord’s Supper is a sacrament, wherein, by giving and receiving bread and wine, according to Christ’s appointment, His death is showed forth; and the worthy receivers are, not after a corporal and carnal manner, but by faith, made partakers of His body and blood, with all His benefits, to their spiritual nourishment, and growth in grace.

Leader: Q 97. What is required for the worthy receiving of the Lord’s Supper?

All: A. It is required of them that would worthily partake of the Lord’s Supper, that they examine themselves of their knowledge to discern the Lord’s body, of their faith to feed upon Him, of their repentance, love, and new obedience; lest, coming unworthily, they eat and drink judgment to themselves.

Text of Institution; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26
Leader: 23 For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took bread, 24and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said,

All: “This is my body, which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.”

Leader: 25 In the same way also he took the cup, after supper, saying,

All: “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.” 26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.
