Sunday Worship Liturgy
October 18, 2020

Below is the worship liturgy for October 18. If you are unable to join us at 9:00AM for our live worship through Zoom, you are invited to walk through this liturgy individually or together with your family.

While we cannot meet together at our church building, we continue to live and act as the church through our collective worship of God. May this liturgy continue to bless you and encourage you in the worship of the Lord. The video of the worship service, which will span approximately 90 minutes in its entirety will be posted by 10:45AM today.

You're always welcome to join us live, every Sunday at 9:00am.

Call to Worship
Psalm 86:8-13

8 There is none like you among the gods, O Lord,
nor are there any works like yours.

9 All the nations you have made shall come
   and worship before you, O Lord,
    and shall glorify your name.

10 For you are great and do wondrous things;
    you alone are God.

11 Teach me your way, O Lord,
    that I may walk in your truth;
    unite my heart to fear your name.

12 I give thanks to you, O Lord my God, with my whole heart,
    and I will glorify your name forever.

13 For great is your steadfast love toward me;
    you have delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol.

Confession
Isaiah 59:12-16

12 For our offenses are many in your sight,
    and our sins testify against us.
   Our offenses are ever with us,
    and we acknowledge our iniquities:

13 rebellion and treachery against the Lord,
    turning our backs on our God,
   inciting revolt and oppression,
    uttering lies our hearts have conceived.

14 So justice is driven back,
    and righteousness stands at a distance;
   truth has stumbled in the streets,
    honesty cannot enter.

15 Truth is nowhere to be found,
    and whoever shuns evil becomes a prey.

   The Lord looked and was displeased
    that there was no justice.

16 He saw that there was no one,
    he was appalled that there was no one to
    intervene;

   so his own arm achieved salvation for him,
    and his own righteousness sustained him.

Assurance of Pardon
Psalm 121:1-2,7-8

1 I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
    where does my help come from?

2 My help comes from the Lord,
    the Maker of heaven and earth.

7 The Lord will keep you from all harm—
    he will watch over your life;

8 the Lord will watch over your coming and going
    both now and forevermore.

Philippians 1:1-11

Greeting

1 Paul and Timothy, servants of Christ Jesus,

To all the saints in Christ Jesus who are at Philippi, with the overseers and deacons:

2 Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Thanksgiving and Prayer

3 I thank my God in all my remembrance of you,
4 always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, 5 because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now. 6 And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. 7 It is right for me to feel this way about you all, because I hold you in my heart, for you are all partakers with me of grace, both in my imprisonment and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel. 8 For God is my witness, how I yearn for you all with the affection of Christ Jesus. 9 And it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment, 10 so that you may approve what is excellent, and so be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, 11 filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.
