PRELUDE        (Please enter into a prayerful mode)


*HYMN OF PRAISE #3      “Come, Thou Almighty King”

*STATEMENT OF FAITH              Apostle’s Creed
I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead and buried; He descended into Hades; the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.  I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy church universal, the communion of the saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.  Amen.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.  As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end.  Amen, Amen.

IN UNISON:  Heavenly Father, we confess that we sometimes live as if there was no God and we fall short of being a credible witness to You.  Teach us to make our worship first about you.   Time and again, we are drawn to the wisdom and “truth” that exists in this kingdom.  We ask your forgiveness and your strength.  We long for worship to point us toward the real truth of your Kingdom. Give us clear minds and open hearts so we may witness to You in our world.  Remind us that we are yours regardless of what we are doing or who we are with.  Teach us what awe and reverence means in our life and worship.  Hold us to You and build our relationship with You and with those You have given us on earth.  Amen.                 (Time for personal silent reflection)


WORDS OF ASSURANCE:                        John 3:16-17

MOMENT FOR MISSION:  New Cally Care Team, Joyce McKitrick

CHOIR     “Refiner’s Fire with Holy Spirit, Rain Down”

Sermon Series:  “The Necessity of Worship”    Part 3

SERMON:      Rev. Earl E. Dunbar           “Which Kingdom’s Truth?”

IN UNISON:  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.  Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, for Thine is the Kingdom, and the Power, and the Glory forever.  Amen.

OFFERING (Please sign & pass the attendance pads.)

*DOXOLOGY:  Praise God from whom all blessings flow.  Praise Him, all creatures here below.  Praise Him above ye heavenly hosts.  Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost.  Amen.
