Sixth Sunday of Pentecost

Ordinary Time

July 14th, 2019 | 7.14.2019

Song of Adoration 


Call to Worship – Psalm 86                                  

   Mr. Charlie Bursi

Leader: All the nations the LORD has made shall come and worship before Him, and they shall glorify His name.

People: For the LORD is great and He does wondrous things; He alone is God.

Leader: Teach us Your ways, O LORD, that we may walk in Your truth;

People: unite our hearts to fear Your name.

Leader: Give thanks to the LORD with your whole heart, and glorify His name forever.

All: For great is your steadfast love toward us, O LORD. You have delivered our souls from the depths of Sheol.

Song of Praise

   Only A Holy God

Confession of Sin

   Mr. Charlie Bursi

Leader: Author of our faith and Master of our hearts, you call us to unite our faith with repentance, and repentance with forgiveness of others.  Help us this morning to boldly confess, boldly repent and boldly forgive for the sake of your song, Jesus. 

All: Our pride and self- righteousness cause us to demand justice that is not ours to require. Instead of extending forgiveness by resting in the grace of the cross, we demand retribution of our brothers and sisters. Though we’ve received forgiveness and restoration from You, we would rather run toward vengeance and self-justification than return to You in thanksgiving. We are unworthy servants, yet we act like masters of our own lives. We forsake the duty we owe Christ, and instead we feast on things less satisfying than Him. Call us back to Jesus! Remind us of our citizenship in Your kingdom, and cleanse us by grace through faith so we may return to You in thankfulness and praise.

Song of Comfort

   Christ Is Mine Forevermore

Assurance of Pardon – Ephesians 2

Leader: Citizens of God’s Kingdom, you who were once far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ! For through Him you have access in one Spirit to the Father. So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God.

Leader: Lord Jesus Christ, you know our faults and have heard our prayers. You have ripped apart the barriers that separate us from God and opened us to the grace of God through your sacrifice of love on a cross, and your resurrection from the dead. Fill your people and give us peace. The peace of the Lord be with you.

People: And also with you!

Song of Preparation & Offering

   Heal Us

The offering is a way for Christians to support the mission and ministry of the church. Christians offer a sacrificial portion of their resources- time, talents, possessions- as an act of faith and gratitude in response to God’s grace. If you are a visitor, please do not feel like you need to give anything. The offering is for those who call City Pres home to express their faith through giving.

The Lord’s Supper

Jesus has prepared this table for all who love him and trust in him alone for their salvation. All who see their need for Jesus as their Lord and Savior are invited to come with gladness to the table of the Lord. (Wine is on the outer circle and juice on the inner circles, gluten free bread is provided on the plate. Young children who do not yet take the sacrament may be brought forward for prayer.
