Confession of Sin

   Rev. Justin Edgar

All:  Holy and merciful God, in your presence we confess our sinfulness, our shortcomings, and our offenses against you. You alone know how often we have sinned in wandering from your ways, in wasting your gifts, in forgetting your love. Have mercy on us, O Lord, for we are ashamed and sorry for all we have done to displease you. Forgive our sins, and help us to live in your light and walk in your ways, for the sake of Jesus Christ, our Savior. Amen.

Assurance of Pardon – Acts 13:38; Ephesians 1:7

Leader: Through Jesus Christ forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you. In Christ we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace.  Amen.

Leader: The peace of the Lord be always with you.

People:  And also with you.

Song of Preparation & Offering

  Jesus I My Cross Have Taken

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.

It All Depends on Faith: Genesis 15

   Rev. Justin Edgar

  Blessed Assurance

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. If you have any worries about being on camera, please remain seated during this time. The stage and surrounding area is on FB Live.)
