*Call to Worship - Psalm 91:1; 37:7

Minister: He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for Him.

*Opening Hymn - "O Father, You Are Sovereign" (Hymnal #75)

     O Father, you are sovereign in all the worlds you made;
     Your mighty word was spoken and light and life obeyed.
     Your voice commands the seasons and bounds the ocean’s shore,
     Sets stars within their courses and stills the tempests’ roar.

     O Father, you are sovereign in all affairs of man;
     No pow'rs of death or darkness can thwart Your perfect plan.
     All chance and change transcending, supreme in time and space,
     You hold your trusting children secure in your embrace.

     O Father, you are sovereign the Lord of human pain,
     Transmuting earthly sorrows to gold of heav'nly gain.
     All evil over-ruling, as none but Conqu'ror could,
     Your love pursues its purpose — our souls’ eternal good.

     O Father, you are sovereign! We see you dimly now,
     But soon before your triumph earth’s every knee shall bow.
     With this glad hope before us our faith springs up anew:
     Our sovereign Lord and Savior, we trust and worship you!

*Prayer of Invocation
Silent Confession
Corporate Confession and the Lord’s Prayer
     All: Eternal God, in whom we live and move and have our being; whose face is hidden from us by our sins; and whose mercy we forget in the blindness of our hearts; cleanse us, we beseech You, from all our offenses, and deliver us from proud thoughts and vain desires, that with lowliness and meekness we may draw near to You, confessing our faults, confiding in Your grace, and finding in You our refuge and our strength; through Jesus Christ Your Son.

     Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name. Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on 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.

Assurance of Grace - John 11:25-26

Liturgy of the Upper Room

Hymn of Preparation - "'Twas on that Night When Doomed to Know" (Hymnal #422)

     'Twas on that night when doomed to know the eager rage of every foe,
     That night in which he was betrayed, the Savior of the world took bread;

     And after thanks and glory giv'n to him that rules in earth and heav'n,
     That symbol of his flesh he broke, and thus to all his foll'wers spoke:

     "My broken body thus I give for you, for all. Take, eat, and live.
     And oft the sacred rite renew that brings my saving love to view."

      Then in his hands the cup he raised, and God anew he thanked and praised,
     while kindness in his bosom glowed, and from his lips salvation flowed.

     "My blood I thus pour forth," he cries, "to cleanse the soul in sin that lies;
     In this the covenant is sealed, and heav'n's eternal grace revealed.

     "With love to man this cup is fraught; let all partake the sacred draught;
     Through latest ages let it pour, in mem'ry of my dying hour."

Words of Institution - 1 Corinthians 11:23-26
Our Confession of Faith - "The Apostles' Creed"
     Minister:
Christian, in whom do you believe?
     All: I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth. I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, and born of the virgin Mary;  He suffered under Pontius Pilate; was crucified, died, and was buried; he descended into hell. The third day he rose again from the dead.  He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God the Father  Almighty. From there he will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.
