Welcome to virtual worship for Second Presbyterian Church.
You are invited to gather everyone in your household (pets counts too!) to sit around your computer, tablet, phone, or TV and worship God together. If at all possible for you to do this around 10:00 on Sunday morning, that would be wonderful so we can know that we are worshiping together even though we can’t be together physically. You can follow along with the script – when a video is present, just click on it to listen or even sing along. I have found two song choices for each “hymn” a more traditional organ led music is the first (or on the left) and a more contemporary version or song is the second (or on the right). Choose what is best for you or even listen to both if you prefer.
Let us come together (in spirit) and worship God!
CALL TO WORSHIP
One: Come, sing praises to God! Rejoice in his presence!
All: For he is our God: a Father to the fatherless, and the defender of all who need protection;
One: the One in whom the lonely find a home, and the prisoner finds release.
All: Bless the Lord, the God of our salvation, who sustains and strengthens us, day after day!
One: Let’s worship God together!
HYMN – This is My Father’s World or Good Good Father
PRAYER OF CONFESSION
One: The proof of God’s amazing love is this: While we were sinners, Christ died for us. Let us therefore approach the throne of grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Trusting in God’s faithfulness and compassion, let us confess our sin before God and one another.
All: God of love, in the wrong we have done and in the good we have not done,
we have sinned in ignorance;
we have sinned in weakness;
we have sinned through our own deliberate fault.
We are truly sorry.
We repent and turn to you.
Forgive us and renew our lives through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
ASSURANCE OF PARDON
One: Who is in the position to condemn? Only Christ.
And Christ came for us,
Christ lived for us,
Christ died for us,
Christ rose for us,
Christ reigns in power for us,
Christ prays for us.
Anyone who is in Christ is a new creation the old is gone, the new has come.
Hear and beleive the Good News of the Gospel: In Jesus Christ, we are forgiven!
All: Hallelujah! Amen.
PRAYER FOR ILLUMINATION
All: Heavenly Father, may your word be a light unto our feet and a light unto our path. In Jesus name we pray, Amen.
