CALL TO WORSHIP & PROCESSIONAL  (The congregation standing)


Call to Worship from the Lectionary Psalm of the Day (Psalm 65:(1-8), 9-13)

Minister: Arise now and ascend to the heavenly City in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit!
Congregation: Amen!

†Processional Hymn - All Earth to Him (Psalm 22) (p. PH1) (MP3PDF)


Minister: The grace and peace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with you!
People: And also with you!
Minister: When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.
Congregation: He ascended up far above all heavens, that He might fill all things.


SIN OFFERING: CONFESSION (The congregation is invited to kneel through the Declaration of Absolution.)

Unison: Most merciful God, we confess that we have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed, by what we have done, and by what we have left undone. We have not loved you with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. We are truly sorry and we humbly repent. For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ, have mercy on us and forgive us; that we may delight in your will, and walk in your ways, to the glory of your Name. Amen.


Minister: Therefore, I declare that your sins are forgiven in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.

Congregation: Thanks be to God. Our sins are forgiven in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Minister: Arise, lift up your heads and believe the good news! God, our heavenly Father, has had mercy on us. Therefore, stand in His presence, knowing your acceptance in the Savior; Hallelujah! The Spirit of the Lord filleth the world.   

Congregation: O come, let us worship Him. Hallelujah!

†The Nicene Creed


Unison: We believe in one God the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, and 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 men and for our salvation came down from heaven, and was incarnate by the Holy Ghost 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 sitteth on the right hand of the Father: and He shall come again, with glory, to judge both the quick and the dead; whose kingdom shall have no end. And we believe in the Holy Ghost, the Lord, and Giver of Life, who proceedeth from the Father and the Son; who with the Father and the Son together is worshiped and glorified; who spake 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.
