Welcome and Announcements


The Prayer of Preparation

Almighty God, from whom every good prayer comes, who pours out on all who desire it the spirit of grace and of supplication: deliver us, when we draw nigh to Thee, from coldness of heart and wanderings of mind, that with steadfast thoughts and kindled affections we may worship Thee in spirit and in truth, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

+ The Praise Hymn                                                               5 “God, My King, Thy Might Confessing”


+ The Scriptural Confession of Faith

By common confession, great is the mystery of godliness:

He who was revealed in the flesh,

Was vindicated in the Spirit,

Seen by angels,

Proclaimed among the nations,

Believed on in the world,

Taken up in glory. 1

It is a trustworthy statement, deserving full acceptance,

that Christ Jesus came into the world

to save sinners,

among whom I am foremost of all. 2

But thanks be to God for His indescribable gift! 3

While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 4

Now to the King

eternal, immortal, invisible,

the only wise God,

be honor and glory forever and ever. 5 Amen.
