The Order for the Worship of God

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

Call to Worship

Hymn     # 469     A Mighty Fortress is Our God          (Gray Psalter Hymnal)

Psalter:     Psalm 99     (NRSV)          Bert Chapman

1The LORD is king; let the peoples tremble! He sits enthroned upon the cherubim; let the earth quake!

2The LORD is great in Zion; he is exalted over all the peoples.

3Let them praise your great and awesome name. Holy is he!

4Mighty King, lover of justice, you have established equity; you have executed justice and righteousness in Jacob.

5Extol the LORD our God; worship at his footstool. Holy is he!

6Moses and Aaron were among his priests, Samuel also was among those who called on his name. They cried to the LORD, and he answered them.

7He spoke to them in the pillar of cloud; they kept his decrees, and the statutes that he gave them.

8O LORD our God, you answered them; you were a forgiving God to them, but an avenger of their wrongdoings.

9Extol the LORD our God, and worship at his holy mountain; for the LORD our God is holy.

Prayer for Illumination                         

New Testament Reading:     Luke 9:28-36  

       28Now about eight days after these sayings Jesus took with him Peter and John and James, and went up on the mountain to pray. 29And while he was praying, the appearance of his face changed, and his clothes became dazzling white. 30Suddenly they saw two men, Moses and Elijah, talking to him. 31They appeared in glory and were speaking of his departure, which he was about to accomplish at Jerusalem. 32Now Peter and his companions were weighed down with sleep; but since they had stayed awake, they saw his glory and the two men who stood with him. 33Just as they were leaving him, Peter said to Jesus, “Master, it is good for us to be here; let us make three dwellings, one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah”—not knowing what he said. 34While he was saying this, a cloud came and overshadowed them; and they were terrified as they entered the cloud. 35Then from the cloud came a voice that said, “This is my Son, my Chosen; listen to him!” 36When the voice had spoken, Jesus was found alone. And they kept silent and in those days told no one any of the things they had seen.

Choral Anthem     The Light of Glory

You are the light of glory

You are the wondrous story

You are the author of our faith

You are the life eternal

You are the word supernal

You are the Lamb, the giver of grace

You are the mighty warrior

You are the great Redeemer

You are the chief and cornerstone

You are the sure foundation

You are the hope of nations

You are our God and God alone

You are the light of glory

You are the wondrous story

You are the maker of all things

You are the great creator

You are the Lord and Savior

You are the One, the King of kings

You are patient and kind

You are love divine

A treasure of priceless worth

Your kingdom endures forever

Your mercy faileth never

You are the joy of salvation

The light of the world

You are the Lord

You are the King

You are the light of glory!

Children’s Sermon

Hymn     # 500     How Firm a Foundation          (Gray Psalter Hymnal) 

Old Testament Reading:     Malachi 4:4-6

       4Remember the teaching of my servant Moses, the statutes and ordinances that I commanded him at Horeb for all Israel.

       5Lo, I will send you the prophet Elijah before the great and terrible day of the Lord comes. 6He will turn the hearts of parents to their children and the hearts of children to their parents, so that I will not come and strike the land with a curse.
