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.

Prelude          Mary Heller

Welcome and Greeting

Introit     The Giving Song          FPC Youth Choir


Hymn     Insert     Come, People of the Risen King

Confession of Sin and Assurance of Pardon

Psalter     Psalm 104:24-34, 35b     (NRSVUE)          Youth Reader

24O LORD, how manifold are your works! In wisdom you have made them all; the earth is full of your creatures.

25There is the sea, great and wide; creeping things innumerable are there, living things both small and great.

26There go the ships and Leviathan that you formed to sport in it.

27These all look to you to give them their food in due season;

28when you give to them, they gather it up; when you open your hand, they are filled with good things.

29When you hide your face, they are dismayed; when you take away their breath, they die and return to their dust.

30When you send forth your spirit, they are created, and you renew the face of the ground.

31May the glory of the LORD endure forever; may the Lord rejoice in his works—

32who looks on the earth and it trembles, who touches the mountains and they smoke.

33I will sing to the LORD as long as I live; I will sing praise to my God while I have being.

34May my meditation be pleasing to him, for I rejoice in the LORD.

35bBless the LORD, O my soul. Praise the LORD!

New Testament Reading     Acts 2:1-8, 12          Youth Reader       

       2 When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. 2And suddenly from heaven there came a sound like the rush of a violent wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. 3Divided tongues, as of fire, appeared among them, and a tongue rested on each of them. 4All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other languages, as the Spirit gave them ability.

       5Now there were devout Jews from every people under heaven living in Jerusalem. 6And at this sound the crowd gathered and was bewildered, because each one heard them speaking in the native language of each. 7Amazed and astonished, they asked, “Are not all these who are speaking Galileans? 8And how is it that we hear, each of us, in our own native language?

       12All were amazed and perplexed, saying to one another, “What does this mean?”

Lector: This is the Word of the Lord.

Congregation: Thanks be to God for His Word.

Anthem     The Perfect Ten          FPC Youth Choir

Number one, we’ve just begun

     God should be first in your life

Number two’s the idol rule

     Those graven images aren’t nice

Number three, God’s name should be

     Never spoken in jest

Number four, the Sabbath’s for

     Our worship and for rest

Number five, we all should strive

     To honor mother and father

Number six, don’t get your kicks

     From killing one another

Number seven, life is heaven

     When you’re true to your mate

Number eight, don’t steal

     And break this rule for goodness sake

Number nine, don’t be the kind

     That goes around telling lies

Number ten, don’t covet when you see

     Your neighbor’s house or wife

That’s the list and God insists

We stay away from these sins

That is why we memorize

Commandments one through ten

The perfect ten, the perfect ten

They’re just as true as they were

Way back when

God gave the perfect ten

The perfect ten

Let’s say them once again

Hymn     # 424     Spirit of the Living God          (Gray Psalter Hymnal)

Old Testament Reading     Deuteronomy 6:4-9, 20-24          Youth Reader

       4“Hear, O Israel: The LORD is our God, the LORD alone. 5You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. 6Keep these words that I am commanding you today in your heart. 7Recite them to your children and talk about them when you are at home and when you are away, when you lie down and when you rise. 8Bind them as a sign on your hand, fix them as an emblem on your forehead, 9and write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.

       20“When your children ask you in time to come, ‘What is the meaning of the decrees and the statutes and the ordinances that the LORD our God has commanded you?’ 21then you shall say to your children, ‘We were Pharaoh’s slaves in Egypt, but the LORD brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand. 22The LORD displayed before our eyes great and awesome signs and wonders against Egypt, against Pharaoh and all his household. 23He brought us out from there in order to bring us in, to give us the land that he promised on oath to our ancestors. 24Then the LORD commanded us to observe all these statutes, to fear the LORD our God, for our lasting good, so as to keep us alive, as is now the case.
