PRAYER OF ADORATION AND CONFESSION

OPENING HYMNGod of our Fathers (TH# 710)

1 God of our fathers, whose almighty hand
leads forth in beauty all the starry band
of shining worlds in splendor through the skies,
our grateful songs before thy throne arise.

2 Thy love divine hath led us in the past;
in this free land by thee our lot is cast;
be thou our ruler, guardian, guide, and stay;
thy Word our law, thy paths our chosen way.

3 From war’s alarms, from deadly pestilence,
be thy strong arm our ever-sure defense;
thy true religion in our hearts increase,
thy bounteous goodness nourish us in peace.

4 Refresh thy people on their toilsome way,
lead us from night to never-ending day;
fill all our lives with love and grace divine,
and glory, laud, and praise be ever thine.

Daniel Crane Roberts (1876)

AFFIRMATION OF FAITHThe Nicene Creed
We believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, Of all things visible and invisible.

And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, Begotten of his Father before all worlds, God of God, Light of Light Very God of very God, Begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father; By whom all things were made; Who for us and for our salvation Came down from heaven, And was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary, And was made man; And was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate; He suffered and was buried; And the third day he rose again according to the Scriptures, And ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father; And he shall come again, with glory, to judge both the living and the dead; Whose kingdom shall have no end.

And we believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and giver of life, Who proceeds from the Father and the Son; Who with the Father and the Son together is worshiped and glorified; Who spoke by the prophets; And we believe in one holy catholic and apostolic church; We acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins; And we look for the resurrection of the dead, And the life of the world to come.  Amen.

FIRST SCRIPTURE READINGHebrews 1:1-4

PRAYER OF INTERCESSION & THE LORD’S PRAYER
Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil:
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.

SCRIPTURE READINGPsalm 96

CLOSING HYMNMay the Peace

May the peace of God our Heavenly Father
And the grace of Christ the risen Son
And the fellowship of God the Spirit
Keep our hearts and minds within His love

Chorus:
And to Him be praise for his glorious reign
From the depths of earth to the heights of heaven
We declare the name of the Lamb once slain
Christ eternal, the King of Kings

May this peace which passes understanding
And this grace which makes us what we are
And this fellowship of his communion
Make us one in spirit and in heart.

Chorus: 2X
