GOD GATHERS HIS PEOPLE
Call to Worship
Song - Great Is Thy Faithfulness  
Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father;
There is no shadow of turning with Thee;
Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not;
As Thou hast been Thou forever wilt be.

Great is Thy faithfulness!
Great is Thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see:
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided --
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!

Summer and winter and spring-time and harvest
Sun moon  and stars in their courses above
Join with all nature in manifold witness
To Thy great faithfulness mercy and love.

Great is Thy faithfulness! 
Great is Thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see:
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided --
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!

Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth
Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow
Blessings all mine with ten thousand beside.

Great is Thy faithfulness! 
Great is Thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see:
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided --
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!

WE COME TO GOD BY FAITH
Prayer of Adoration
God’s Greeting - Westminster Confession of Faith 28:1, 5-7
Confession of Faith - 
The Apostles' Creed

     Baptism is a sacrament of the new testament, ordained by Jesus Christ, not only for the solemn admission of the party baptized into the visible church; but also, to be unto him a sign and seal of the covenant of grace, of his ingrafting into Christ, of regeneration, of remission of sins, and of his giving up unto God, through Jesus Christ, to walk in newness of life.  Which sacrament is, by Christ’s own appointment, to be continued in his church until the end of the world.

     Although it be a great sin to contemn or neglect this ordinance, yet grace and salvation are not so inseparably annexed unto it, as that no person can be regenerated, or saved without it; or that all that are baptized are undoubtedly regenerated.

     The efficacy of baptism is not tied to the moment of time wherein it is administered; yet, notwithstanding, by the right use of this ordinance, the grace promised is not only offered, but really exhibited, and conferred, by the Holy Ghost, to such (whether of age or infants) as that grace belongeth unto, according to the counsel of God’s own will, in his appointed time.

       The sacrament of baptism is but once to be administered unto any person.

Assurance of God’s Pardon

Song - How Deep The Father's Love
How deep the Father’s love for us,
How vast beyond all measure.
That He should give His only Son
To make a wretch His treasure.
How great the pain of searing loss,
The Father turns His face away.
As wounds which mar the chosen One
Bring many sons to glory.

Behold the Man upon a cross,
My sin upon His shoulders.
Ashamed I hear my mocking voice
Call out among the scoffers.
It was my sin that held Him there
Until it was accomplished.
His dying breath has brought me life,
I know that it is finished.

I will not boast in anything,
No gifts, no power, no wisdom.
But I will boast in Jesus Christ,
His death and resurrection.

[2x]*Why should I gain from His reward?
I cannot give an answer.
But this I know with all my heart,
His wounds have paid my ransom.

Covenant Baptism

Song - Shine Thou Upon Us Lord
Shine thou upon us Lord true light of men today
And through the written Word thy very self display
That so from hearts which burn with gazing on thy face
Thy little ones may learn the wonders of thy grace.

Speak thou for us O Lord in all we say of thee
According to thy Work let all our teaching be
That so thy lambs may know their own true Shepherd’s voice
Where’er he leads them go and in his love rejoice.

Live thou within us Lord thy mind and will be ours
Be thou belov’d adored and served with all our pow’rs
That so our lives may teach thy children what thou art
And plead by more than speech for thee with ev’ry heart.
