Call To Worship: We Bless You, God of All Mercies

ALL: We bless You, God of all mercies, for our creation, preservation, and all the blessings of this life;

WOMEN: We praise You for Your boundless love revealed to us in Your Son, our Lord, Jesus Christ, for the means of grace and for the hope of glory.

MEN: Give us such an awareness of Your mercies that with truly thankful hearts we may show forth Your praise not only with our lips, but in our lives, by giving up ourselves to Your service, and by walking before You in holiness and righteousness all our days;

ALL: Through Jesus Christ our redeemer to whom, with You and the Holy Spirit, be all honor and glory now and forever.  Amen!  Amen!  Amen!

Classic Prayer: John Bailie

O thou in whose boundless being are laid up all treasures of wisdom and truth and holiness, grant that through constant fellowship with Thee the true graces of Christian character may more and more take shape within my soul: The grace of a thankful and uncomplaining heart: The grace to await Thy leisure patiently and to answer Thy call promptly: The grace of courage, whether in suffering or in danger: The grace of boldness in standing for what is right: The grace of silence, that I may refrain from hasty speech: The grace of forgiveness towards all who have wronged me: And now, O God, give me a quiet mind. Dwell in my thoughts. Let me not be fretted by any anxiety over the lesser interests of life. And in my tasks of each day, to Thy Name be all the glory.

Creed: Jesus, The Son of God

LEADER:  Why is the Son of God called “Jesus,” meaning “savior?”
PEOPLE:  Because He saves us from our sins and because salvation is not to be sought or found in anyone else.

LEADER:  Why is He called “Christ,” meaning “anointed?”
PEOPLE:  Because He has been ordained by God the Father and has been anointed with the Holy Spirit to be our chief prophet and teacher, who fully reveals to us the secret counsel and will of God concerning our deliverance; our only high priest, who has delivered us by the one sacrifice of His body, and who continually intercedes for us before the Father; and our eternal king who governs us by His Word and Spirit, and who guards us and keeps us in the deliverance He has won for us.
