Kuhn Memorial Presbyterian Church 955 Main Street Barboursville, West Virginia 25504 September 6, 2020 Service for the Lord’s Day
*Call to Worship Based on Psalm 149
Praise the Lord!
Sing to the Lord a new song, sing God’s praise in the assembly of the faithful!
Let the children of God rejoice!
For the Lord takes pleasure in God’s people.
Let the faithful exult in glory; let them praise God from their couches.
Let the high praises of God be in our throats.
We come today to give God all our thanks and praise.
Let us worship the Lord our God!
*Affirmation of Faith The 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.
Prayer of the Day
Loving God, on this weekend, when we rest from our usual labors, we pray for all who perform the tasks of human labor-in marketplace, factories, and offices, in the professions, and in family living. We thank you for the opportunity to work, to contribute to an orderly society, to provide for ourselves, and to share with others. May our efforts always be pure of heart, for the good of others and the glory of your name. We lift up to you all who long for just employment, for people of vision whose imaginations lead to opportunities for work, and those who protect the rights of the workforce. May those of us who are now retired find meaning in new service that uplifts our community and benefits the church. In our working and in our resting, we offer our prayers, through Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Time With the Young Disciples
