Invocation

Confession and Forgiveness:

P: We have come here today to worship the Lord.  In worship we hear the Word of God, we receive God’s blessings, and respond with thanks and praise.  We begin by seeking God’s blessing of forgiveness.  He has promised to remove the guilt and shame of our sin through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross.

(a time of silence to reflect and personally confess our sins)

P: Let us confess our sins to the Lord.

P: Heavenly Father,
C: Heavenly Father,

P: I have done things that were wrong.
C: I have done things that were wrong.

P: I have been mean to others.
C: I have been mean to others.

P: I have not obeyed my parents.
C: I have not obeyed my parents.

P: I have not obeyed You, God.
C: I have not obeyed You, God.

P: But I am very sorry.
C: But I am very sorry.

P: Please forgive me.
C: Please forgive me.

P: I love You very much.
C: I love You very much.

P: And I know You love me, too.
C: And I know You love me, too.

P: God has heard your apology.  He loves you very much.  God has told us that when we believe and trust in Him, He makes us His children.  As far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our sins from us. He has told me to tell you that you are forgiven.  So, as His servant, I forgive you in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

C: Amen.

Song: Jesus Loves Me

Verse 1:
Jesus loves me this I know, For the Bible tells me so.
Little ones to Him belong, They are weak, but He is strong.

Chorus:
Yes, Jesus loves me, Yes, Jesus loves me,
Yes, Jesus loves me, The Bible tells me so.

Verse 2:
Jesus loves me, He who died. Heaven’s gates to open wide.
He will wash away my sin, Let His little child come in.

Chorus

First Reading – Acts 13:38-39

Brothers, understand what we are telling you. You can have forgiveness of your sins through this Jesus. The Law of Moses could not free you from your sins. But you can be made right with God if you believe in Jesus.

Reader: This is the Word of the Lord.
C: Thanks be to God.

Children’s Message “Free from Our Sin”

Song: “Who You Say I Am”

Verse 1:
Who am I that the highest King Would welcome me
I was lost but He brought me in Oh His love for me
Oh His love for me

Chorus 1:
Who the Son sets free, Oh is free indeed
I’m a child of God, Yes I am

Verse 2:
Free at last He has ransomed me His grace runs deep
While I was a slave to sin Jesus died for me. Yes He died for me

Chorus 2:
Who the Son sets free, Oh is free indeed
I’m a child of God, Yes I am
In my Father’s house, There’s a place for me
I’m a child of God, Yes I am

Bridge:
I am chosen Not forsaken
I am who You say I am
You are for me Not against me
I am who You say I am

Tag:

I am who You say I am
(Chorus 2)

(Chorus 2 second half, “In my Father’s house…”)

Second Reading – Galatians 5:1

We have freedom now, because Christ made us free. So stand strong in that freedom. Don’t go back into slavery again.

Reader: This is the Word of the Lord.
C: Thanks be to God.

Children’s Message “Free of the Law”

Song: By Grace, I’m Saved

Verse 1:
By grace I’m saved, grace free and boundless;
My soul, believe and doubt it not.
Why stagger at this word of promise?
Has Scripture ever falsehood taught?
No! Then this word must true remain;
By grace you too will life obtain.

Verse 3:
By grace God’s Son, our only Savior,
Came down to earth to bear our sin.
Was it because of your own merit,
That Jesus died your soul to win?
No, it was grace, and grace alone,
That brought Him from His heav’nly throne.

Verse 4:
By grace! On this I’ll rest when dying;
In Jesus’ promise I rejoice;
For though I know my heart’s condition,
I also know my Savior’s voice.
My heart is glad, all grief has flown,
Since I am saved by grace alone.

Sermon – “Free to Love”

Sermon Text: Galatians 5:13-14

For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”

Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.  For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever.  Amen
