Nineteenth Sunday of Pentecost
October 13th, 2019 | 10.13.2019
Song of Adoration
Call to Worship – Psalm 104
Mr. Josh Spare
Leader: Bless the LORD, who makes the clouds His chariot and rides on the wings of the wind.
People: He set the earth on its foundations, so that it should never be moved. He filled it with deep waters which covered the mountains like a garment.
Leader: At His rebuke they fled; the mountains and valleys took their appointed places.
All: May the glory of the LORD endure forever, and may the LORD rejoice in His works. Praise the LORD!
Song of Praise
All My Ways Are Known To You
Confession of Sin
Mr. Josh Spare
Leader: King of heaven, you have transferred our allegiance from the kingdom of darkness to the kingdom of light in Jesus Christ.
All: Your kingdom has broken into this age through Your reign in our hearts, and You have established Your Church as a colony of heaven. Yet we so often neglect Your call to watchfulness. Our hearts are weighed down by distraction, made slow and blind by drink, entertainment, money, and leisure. We insulate ourselves by seeking to minimize the influence of the world in our own lives, ignoring the need for renewal and restoration through Christ’s return. We worship our stomachs and our bank accounts. We glory in that which ought to shame us, and we set our ultimate affections on earthly things. Forgive us, O Lord! Raise our hearts and minds to heaven, for from there we await our Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
Assurance of Pardon – Philippians 3
Leader: Saints, your righteousness comes not from the law, but by faith in Jesus Christ— the righteousness from God that depends on faith. For this reason we count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Jesus Christ our Lord. To Him be glory forever and ever. God has received us, pardoned us and loved us; let us forgive each other in love and share the peace of Christ. The peace of Christ be always with you.
People: And also with you.

Song of Preparation & Offering
Jesus I Come
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.

All I Have Is Christ
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.)

Benediction- Habakkuk 2 & 3
Leader: Righteous Ones, watch and pray, for the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD as the waters cover the sea. So let us live by faith as we await the consummation of His promises! Take joy in the God of your salvation, and may the LORD be your strength. May He make your feet like the deer’s and make you to walk in security as you await His coming. Come quickly, Lord Jesus! Amen.
