Call to Worship 宣召

Psalm 诗篇 150

Praise the Lord! Praise God in his sanctuary;
   praise him in his mighty heavens!
Praise him for his mighty deeds;
   praise him according to his excellent greatness!
Praise him with trumpet sound;
   praise him with lute and harp!

你们要赞美耶和华。要在 神的圣所赞美他,

Praise him with tambourine and dance;
   praise him with strings and pipe!
Praise him with sounding cymbals;
   praise him with loud clashing cymbals!
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord!


The Nicene Creed 尼西亞信經

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 Son of God,
   begotten from the Father before all ages,
       God from God,
       Light from Light,
       true God from true God,
   begotten, not made;
   of the same essence as the Father.

Through him all things were made.
For us and for our salvation
   he came down from heaven;
   he became incarnate by the Holy Spirit
       and the virgin Mary,
   and was made human.
   He was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate;
   he suffered and was buried.


   The third day he rose again,
       according to the Scriptures.
   He ascended to heaven
   and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
   He will come again with glory
   to judge the living and the dead.
   His kingdom will never end.

照圣经的话第三天复活;升天,坐在父的右 边;将来必从威荣中降临,审判活人、死人;他的国度永无穷尽。

And we believe in the Holy Spirit,
   the Lord, the giver of life.
   He proceeds from the Father and the Son,
       and with the Father and the Son
       is worshiped and glorified.
   He spoke through the prophets.


We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic church.
We affirm one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
We look forward to the resurrection of the dead,
and to life in the world to come.


Confession of Sins 承認過犯

Holy and merciful God,
in your presence we confess our sinfulness, our shortcomings,
and our offenses against you.
You alone know how often we have sinned
in wandering from your ways,
in wasting your gifts, in forgetting your love.

神圣满有怜悯的神啊, 在你面前我们向你悔改,为我们的罪性,

Have mercy on us, O Lord,
for we are ashamed and sorry for all we have done to displease you.
Forgive our sins, and help us to live in your light
and walk in your ways, for the sake of Jesus Christ, our Savior. Amen.


Assurance of Pardon 得寬恕的確據

from Acts 使徒行传 13:38; Ephesians 以弗所书 1:7

Through Jesus Christ forgiveness of sins
is proclaimed to you.
In Christ we have redemption through his blood,
the forgiveness of our trespasses,
according to the riches of his grace.


O Praise The Name (Anástasis)

Dean Ussher, Marty Sampson, Benjamin Hastings

I cast my mind to Calvary
Where Jesus bled and died for me
I see His wounds, His hands, His feet
My Savior on that cursed tree

His body bound and drenched in tears
They laid Him down in Joseph's tomb
The entrance sealed by heavy stone
Messiah still and all alone

O praise the name of the Lord our God
O praise His name forever more
For endless days we will sing Your praise
Oh Lord, oh Lord our God

Then on the third at break of dawn
The Son of heaven rose again
O trampled death where is your sting?
The angels roar for Christ the King

O praise the name of the Lord our God
O praise His name forever more
For endless days we will sing Your praise
Oh Lord, oh Lord our God

He shall return in robes of white
The blazing Son shall pierce the night
And I will rise among the saints
My gaze transfixed on Jesus' face

O praise the name of the Lord our God
O praise His name forever more
For endless days we will sing Your praise
Oh Lord, oh Lord our God
O praise the name of the Lord our God
O praise His name forever more
For endless days we will sing Your praise
Oh Lord, oh Lord our God
Oh Lord, oh Lord our God

Come Thou Fount 萬福源頭

Public Domain. By Robert Robinson, John Wyeth

Come, Thou Fount of every blessing
Tune my heart to sing Thy grace
Streams of mercy, never ceasing
Call for songs of loudest praise
Teach me some melodious sonnet
Sung by flaming tongues above
Praise the mount, I'm fixed upon it
Mount of Thy redeeming love





Here I raise my Ebenezer
Here there by Thy great help I've come
And I hope, by Thy good pleasure
Safely to arrive at home
Jesus sought me when a stranger
Wandering from the fold of God
He, to rescue me from danger
Interposed His precious blood





Oh, to grace how great a debtor
Daily I'm constrained to be
Let that goodness like a fetter
Bind my wandering heart to Thee
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it
Prone to leave the God I love
Here's my heart, oh, take and seal it
Seal it for Thy courts above

Communion on Baptism Sunday | September 27

Next Sunday 9/27/20, we will be holding a baptism ceremony during service for youth group members. We ask that you prepare the sacramental elements of bread and wine as best as you can, and have them ready, and in reach, Sunday morning, so we can flow right to them, after the sermon.

  • For the bread, we ask you use the closest thing to a bread-like substance.
  • It may be leavened bread, crackers, pita, chips, (reasonable) cereal, rice-based food—essentially something that will be close to taking the form of bread without distracting you from it’s imagery in taste and form.
  • For the wine, ideally a product of a fruit, that is red in color is desirable.
  • It may be wine or some kind of fruit juice. (Ideally red.)

Our staff have extra communion supplies if you are in need, so please just let us know at and we’ll have someone drop off communion supplies to your home.
