The Order for the Worship of God

Follow along by watching our livestream on our YouTube channel at 930a on Sunday.

Let the first tone of the organ be a call to quiet meditation in which all may become aware of God’s presence, and lift up a prayer for yourself and for Faith Church.

Hymn     # 13     Immortal, Invisible          (Supplemental Hymnal)

Confession of Sin & Assurance of Pardon     Psalm 130    

1Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord.

2Lord, hear my voice!

    Let your ears be attentive

    to the voice of my supplications!


3 If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities,

    Lord, who could stand?

4 But there is forgiveness with you,

    so that you may be revered.


5I wait for the Lord; my soul waits,

    and in his word I hope;

6my soul waits for the Lord

    more than those who watch for the morning,

    more than those who watch for the morning.


7O Israel, hope in the Lord!

    For with the Lord there is steadfast love,

    and with him is great power to redeem.

8It is he who will redeem Israel

    from all its iniquities.

Psalter     Psalm 50:1-6     (NRSVUE)          Sue Young

1The mighty one, God the Lord, speaks and summons the earth from the rising of the sun to its setting.

2Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God shines forth.

3Our God comes and does not keep silent; before him is a devouring fire and a mighty tempest all around him.

4He calls to the heavens above and to the earth, that he may judge his people:

5“Gather to me my faithful ones, who made a covenant with me by sacrifice!”

6The heavens declare his righteousness, for God himself is judge.

Prayer for Illumination    

Old Testament Reading     Deuteronomy 30:15-20

       15“See, I have set before you today life and prosperity, death and adversity. 16If you obey the commandments of the Lord your God that I am commanding you today, by loving the Lord your God, walking in his ways, and observing his commandments, decrees, and ordinances, then you shall live and become numerous, and the Lord your God will bless you in the land that you are entering to possess. 17But if your heart turns away and you do not hear but are led astray to bow down to other gods and serve them, 18I declare to you today that you shall certainly perish; you shall not live long in the land that you are crossing the Jordan to enter and possess. 19I call heaven and earth to witness against you today that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Choose life so that you and your descendants may live, 20loving the Lord your God, obeying him, and holding fast to him, for that means life to you and length of days, so that you may live in the land that the Lord swore to give to your ancestors, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob.”

Lector: This is the Word of the Lord.

Congregation: Thanks be to God for His Word.

Choral Anthem     10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord)


Bless the Lord, O my soul

O my soul, worship his holy name

Sing like never before

O my soul, I’ll worship your holy name

The sun comes up

It’s a new day dawning

It’s time to sing your song again

Whatever may pass

And whatever lies before me

Let me be singing when the evening comes

You’re rich in love

And you’re slow to anger

Your name is great and your heart is kind

For all your goodness

I will keep on singing

Ten thousand reasons for my heart to find

And on that day when my strength is failing

The end draws near and my time has come

Still my soul will sing your praise unending

Ten thousand years and then forevermore

Children’s Sermon 

Hymn     # 557     My Jesus, I Love Thee          (Gray Psalter Hymnal)

New Testament Reading     John 5:17-30

       17But Jesus answered them, “My Father is still working, and I also am working.” 18For this reason the Jews were seeking all the more to kill him, because he was not only breaking the Sabbath but was also calling God his own Father, thereby making himself equal to God.

       19Jesus said to them, “Very truly, I tell you, the Son can do nothing on his own but only what he sees the Father doing, for whatever the Father does, the Son does likewise. 20The Father loves the Son and shows him all that he himself is doing, and he will show him greater works than these, so that you will be astonished. 21Indeed, just as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, so also the Son gives life to whomever he wishes. 22The Father judges no one but has given all judgment to the Son, 23so that all may honor the Son just as they honor the Father. Anyone who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent him. 24Very truly, I tell you, anyone who hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and does not come under judgment but has passed from death to life.

       25“Very truly, I tell you, the hour is coming and is now here when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear will live. 26For just as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted the Son also to have life in himself, 27and he has given him authority to execute judgment because he is the Son of Man. 28Do not be astonished at this, for the hour is coming when all who are in their graves will hear his voice 29and will come out: those who have done good to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil to the resurrection of condemnation.

       30“I can do nothing on my own. As I hear, I judge, and my judgment is just because I seek to do not my own will but the will of him who sent me.
