Call to Worship: Hebrews 4:11-16 (p 370)

  • Praise to the Lord, the Almighty (p 2)


Scripture Reading: Exodus 20:1-11 (ESV 53)


Confession of Sin:  Gracious God, our sins are too heavy to carry, too real to hide, and too deep to undo.   Forgive what our lips tremble to name, what our hearts can no longer bear, and what has become for us a consuming fire of judgment.  Set us free from a past that we cannot change; open to us a future in which we cannot be changed; and grant us grace to grow more and more in your likeness and image; through Jesus Christ, the light of the world. Amen.

  • O God, Our Help in Ages Past (p 55)


New City Catechism Q46: What is The Lords Supper? Christ commanded all Christians to eat bread and to drink from the cup in thankful remembrance of him and his death. The Lords Supper is a celebration of the presence of God in our midst; bringing us into communion with God and with one another; feeding and nourishing our souls. It also anticipates the day when we will eat and drink with Christ in his Fathers kingdom.


Scripture Memory: John 10:27-30 “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.  I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out my hand.  My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and not one is able to snatch them out of my Father’s hand. I and the Father are one.”
