Order of Worship
Have you ever wondered why we do certain things during our worship service? Well, this MP# file of excerpts from our service on June 5th gives some explanations.
Special thanks to Steve Tudor who served as our piano player! Steve has a great voice and and an engaging heart for God.
Announcements and Prayer Concerns
Prelude and Lighting of the Altar Candles
Choral Call to Worship
Invocation [Sorry the explanation is missing from the audio but the Invocation is about inviting God’s presence and requesting Gods’ guidance and blessing]
Hymn of Praise [Also missing but our first hymn is always one that directly adresses God. Also called a “vertical” worship song.
Call to Confession and Assurance of Pardon [Although the prayer is recorded the explanation is not. The purpose of this is to provide a period of silence followed by a leaders prayer in which we reflect on the sin in our lives, ask for forgiveness and receive God’s pardon]
Doxology and Offertory Prayer [Gene led the prayer and I had to amplify the audio but there is some distortion]
Children’s Time [Again the audio needed to be amplified. For the lesson the first time I stood in front of them, then moved behind them, then finally leaned down close to them–face to face]
Choir Special or Special Music
Communion [I’ve included the truncated audio for this and once again I had to amplify it to hear it. Sorry for the distortion.]
Benediction and Carrying forth the Light
