The Seventh Sunday of Epiphany
February 17th, 2019 | 2.17.2019
Song of Adoration
This is Amazing Grace
Call to Worship – Psalm 1
Rev. Justin Edgar
Minister: Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked,
People: nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers;
Minister: but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night.
People: He is like a tree planted by streams of water
Minister: that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither.
People: In all that he does, he prospers.
Minister: The wicked are not so, but are like chaff that the wind drives away.
People: Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous;
Minister: for the Lord knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish.
Song of Praise
Only A Holy God
Confession of Sin
Rev. Justin Edgar
Minister: Jesus said, “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Let us confess our sin before the face of God and in the presence of the people of God.
People: Almighty and merciful Father, we have erred and strayed from your ways like lost sheep. We have followed too much the devices and desires of our own hearts. We have offended against your holy laws. We have left undone those things which we ought to have done; and we have done those things which we ought not to have done. But you, O Lord, have mercy upon us miserable offenders. Spare those, O God, who confess their faults. Restore those who are penitent, according to your promises declared to the world in Christ Jesus, our Lord. And grant, O merciful God, for his sake, that we may hereafter live a godly, righteous and sober life, to the glory of your holy name. Amen.
Song of Comfort
Assurance of Pardon – 1 Peter 2:24
Minister: Jesus himself bore our sins in his body on the cross, so that, free from sins, we might live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed.
Minister: The peace of the Lord be always with you.
People: And also with you.

Song of Preparation & Offering
Speak O Lord
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.
You Are What You Love – Mark 10:17-31
Rev. Justin Edgar

In Christ Alone
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.)
