Order of Worship
Greetings, St. Paul friends and family, and welcome to Holy Trinity Sunday Worship!
Following is the service for this Lord’s Day.
As we turn to the Lord, let’s take a moment to bow our hearts before Him now.
Confession of Sin & Declaration of Grace
“If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:8-9
Take time to confess your sins and ask God for forgiveness.
Take time to bask in God’s forgiveness and love for you, demonstrated at the Cross.
Scripture & Prayer: Psalm 8
O Lord our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! – you whose glory is chanted above the heavens out of the mouths of infants and children; you have set up a fortress against your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger. When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars you have set in their courses, what are mere mortals that you should be mindful of them, human beings that you should care for them? Yet you have made them little less than divine; with glory and honor you crown them. You have made them rule over the works of your hands; you have put all things under their feet: all flocks and cattle, even the wild beasts of the field, the birds of the air, the fish of the sea, and whatever passes along the paths of the sea.O Lord our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!
Praise the Lord and pray for the needs of God’s people.
Responding with Praise – Holy Trinity Hymn: Listen and sing along with “Holy, Holy, Holy! Lord God Almighty!”
Hearing God’s Word
Watch Pastor Brian’s Sermon “Famous Last Words”
Responding in Faith – Listen to “Praise the Father, Praise the Son. Praise the Spirit, Three in One.”
Pray the LORD’S Prayer
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever and ever. AMEN.
Benediction (Numbers 6:24-26 NIV)
“The LORD bless you and keep you;
the LORD make his face shine on you and be gracious to you;
the LORD turn his face toward you and give you peace.”
Ending with a Holy Trinity Benediction – Listen to “May the Peace of God” (if you would like, close your eyes and listen to the words.)
