Welcome to the recap of the songs, hymns and readings of the Veritas worship gathering on [Date]

Song: “All Creatures of our God and King”

:::ADORATION:::

L: Oh give thanks to the LORD; call upon his name; make known his deeds among the peoples! Sing to him, sing praises to him; tell of all his wondrous works!
C: Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the LORD rejoice!
(Psalm 105:1-3 ESV)

:::CONFESSION/ASSURANCE:::

Song: “Doxology”

Song: “Nothing But the Blood”

Song: “By His Grace”

:::APOSTLES CREED:::

Together we confess:

“I believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord.
He was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
He descended into hell.
On the third day he rose again;
He ascended into heaven,
and is seated at the right hand of the Father,
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.”

:::PASSING OF THE PEACE:::

:::PROCLAMATION OF THE WORD:::

Our sermon was “Desperation: Fasting”, from Isaiah 58-59.

:::COMMUNION:::

L: In the night in which he was betrayed, Our lord Jesus took bread, He gave thanks; broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying: Take and eat; this is my body, given for you. Do this for the remembrance of me.

L: Again, after supper, He took the cup, gave thanks, and gave it for all to drink, saying; this cup is The new covenant in my blood, shed for you and for all people for the forgiveness of sin. Do this for the remembrance of me.

Silent Reflection – to prepare our hearts to come to the Lords table

L: Jesus’ death brings us life and this meal reminds us that we are fed by Jesus and forgiven because of Jesus.

C: We rejoice that You have died, have risen, and are now with the Father advocating for us. Amen.

L: With our money, time, and talent we give generously, knowing that through Your Son, Jesus, You have generously given to us.

C: We rejoice that You have given everything and we joyfully give everything back to Your care. Amen.

C: We rejoice that You have given everything and we joyfully give everything back to Your care. Amen.

Song: “No Condemnation”

:::COMMITMENT:::

L: Once we, too, were foolish and disobedient. We were misled and became slaves to many lusts and pleasures. Our lives were full of evil and envy, and we hated each other. But—When God our Savior revealed His kindness and love, He saved us, not because of the righteous things we had done, but because of His mercy. He washed away our sins, giving us a new birth and new life through the Holy Spirit. He generously poured out the Spirit upon us through Jesus Christ our Savior.
C: Because of His grace He declared us righteous and gave us confidence that we will inherit eternal life.

—based on Titus 3:3-7

Song: “How Great Thou Art”

Song: “Doxology”
