* Prayer of Confession      Depth of Mercy                                                                            arr. Watson
Depth of mercy! Can there be mercy still reserved for me?
Can my God His wrath forbear, me, the chief of sinners, spare?
I have long withstood His grace, long provoked Him to His face,
would not hearken to His calls, grieved Him by a thousand falls.

I my Master have denied, I afresh have crucified,
Oft profaned His hallowed name, put Him to an open shame.
There for me the Savior stands, shows his wounds and spreads His hands.
God is love!  I know, I feel; Jesus weeps and loves me still.

Now incline me to repent, let me now my sins lament,
now my foul revolt deplore, weep, believe, and sin no more.
I surrender all, I surrender all.
All to Thee, my blessed Savior, I surrender all.

*Silent Prayer of Confession and Assurance of Pardon

*Westminster Greeting Please greet those who are in worship this morning.

*Affirmation of Faith                                                                    Apostles’ Creed
I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; he descended into hell; the third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy catholic church; the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting. Amen.
