PRAYER OF ADORATION AND CONFESSION

OPENING HYMN—#302 (v. 1, 2)—Come, Christians Join to Sing
Lyrics by Christian H. Bateman, 1843
Traditional Spanish melody arranged by David Evans, 1927

Come, Christians, join to sing Al-le-lu-ia! Amen!
Loud praise to Christ our King; Al-le-lu-ia! Amen!
Let all, with heart and voice, before his throne rejoice;
Praise is his gracious choice. Al-le-lu-ia! Amen!

Come, lift your hearts on high, Al-le-lu-ia! Amen!
Let praises fill the sky; Al-le-lu-ia! Amen!
He is our Guide and Friend; to us he’ll condescend;
His love shall never end. Al-le-lu-ia! Amen!

AFFIRMATION OF FAITH—Heidelberg Catechism Question 1
Q: What is your only comfort in life and death?

A: My only comfort in life and in death is that I am not my own but belong body and soul to my faithful Savior, Jesus Christ.  He has fully paid for all my sins with His precious blood and has set me free from the tyranny of the devil.  He also watches over me in such a way that not a hair can fall from my head without the will of my heavenly Father.  In fact, all things must work together for my salvation.  Because I belong to Him, Christ, by His Holy Spirit assures me of eternal life and makes me wholeheartedly willing and ready from now on to live for Him.

FIRST SCRIPTURE READING2 Peter 2:1-22

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 READINGJude 1:3-4

CLOSING HYMN—#468 (v. 1, 3)—My Faith Has Found a Resting Place
Lyrics by Lidie H. Edmunds, 1891
Music by Andre Gretry

My faith has found a resting place, from guilt my soul is freed;
I trust the ever-living One, his wounds for me shall plead.

Refrain
I need no other argument, I need no other plea,
It is enough that Jesus died, and that he died for me.

My heart is leaning on the Word, the written Word of God:
Salvation by my Savior’s name, salvation thro’ his blood.

Refrain
