Call to Worship  Psalm 100:1-5  

1 Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth!

2 Serve the LORD with gladness!
Come into his presence with singing!
 
3 Know that the LORD, he is God!
It is he who made us, and we are his;
we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
 
4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving,
and his courts with praise!
Give thanks to him; bless his name!
 
5 For the LORD is good;
his steadfast love endures forever,
and his faithfulness to all generations. 

Prayer of Invocation 

O Lord, Our Lord,
Father,
you are the plentiful store of all happiness.
Since it has pleased you of your free mercy and goodness
to choose us for your own,
and to regenerate us spiritually,
grant that we may daily grow in the knowledge of your goodness, truth, and mercy,
which you have shown to us, through our Redeemer and Savior,
Jesus Christ,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit forever. Amen.

Prayer of Confession (In Unison) 

Most merciful God, we confess that we have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed, by what we have done, and by what we have left undone. We have not loved you with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. We are truly sorry and we humbly repent. For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ, have mercy on us and forgive us; that we may delight in your will, and walk in your ways, to the glory of your Name. Amen.  

Assurance of Forgiveness   1 John 1:9    

9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.  

Affirmation of Faith (In Unison) The Apostles' Creed

I believe in God the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; He descended into hell. The third day He rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty. From there He will come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.

Scripture Readings   Exodus 20:14    

14 “You shall not commit adultery." 

Matthew 5:27-30

27 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ 28 But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29 If your right eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body be thrown into hell. 30 And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body go into hell.
