CALL TO WORSHIP | God Gathers His Church

– Arise O God and Shine

Lord, our Lord,
    how majestic is your name in all the earth!
You have set your glory above the heavens.
    Out of the mouth of babies and infants,
you have established strength because of your foes,
    to still the enemy and the avenger.
Lord, our Lord,
    how majestic is your name in all the earth!

Oh Señor, soberano nuestro,
    ¡qué imponente es tu nombre en toda la tierra!
¡Has puesto tu gloria sobre los cielos!
    Por causa de tus adversarios
has hecho que brote la alabanza
    de labios de los pequeñitos y de los niños de pecho,
para silenciar al enemigo y al rebelde.
Oh Señor, soberano nuestro,
    ¡qué imponente es tu nombre en toda la tierra!

CONSECRATION | God Equips His Church

Scripture Reading and Prayer — Luke 18:15-17; 2 Tim 3:13-15

Now they were bringing even infants to him that he might touch them. And when the disciples saw it, they rebuked them. But Jesus called them to him, saying, “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.” (Luke 18:15-17)

Evil people and impostors will go on from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed, knowing from whom you learned it and how from infancy you have been acquainted with the sacred writings, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. (2 Timothy 3:13-15)

Collect. Almighty and everlasting God, who governs all things in heaven and earth; Mercifully hear the supplications of your people, and grant us your peace all the days of our life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. And heavenly Father, who has blessed us with the joy and care of children; Give us light and strength so to train them, that they may love whatsoever things are true and pure and lovely and of good report, following the example of their Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.

Joseph: Stories of God’s Providence for the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

Sermon – The Birth of Joseph and the Sanctity of Human Life (Genesis 30:22-24)

Then God remembered Rachel, and God listened to her and opened her womb. She conceived and bore a son and said, “God has taken away my reproach.” And she called his name Joseph,saying, “May the Lord add to me another son!”

Pastoral Prayer:

We remember today, O God, the slaughter of the holy innocents of Bethlehem by the order of King Herod; and we remember the immoral decision of the Supreme Court that led to the slaughter of many unborn babies of America. We ask you to receive into the arms of your mercy all those innocent victims; and by your power frustrate the designs of evil judges and the deeds of wicked physicians, and establish your rule of justice, love, and peace throughout the United States of America and the rest of the world; also, we beg you to end the wretchedness of those who choose death over life, who choose destroying life over defending life and delivering it from evil; and we ask you to give the truth of the gospel to those who are deluded and deceived, and to help the helpless, and to grant repentance to the rebellious; and we pray that you will rise up and defend the cause of the un-born, the fatherless, and the single-moms, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

CONFESSION OF FAITH | God Sustains His Church

I believe in God the Father,
Almighty Maker of heaven and earth,
and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord:
Who was conceived of the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended into death.
The third day He arose again from the dead.
He ascended into heaven,
and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty,
whence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy *catholic church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and life everlasting.

Come Boldly To The Throne Of Grace

COMMUNION | God Nourishes His Church

Scripture Reading and Prayer /  Lectura y Oración – 

Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst. But I said to you that you have seen me and yet do not believe. All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never cast out. For I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will but the will of him who sent me. And this is the will of him who sent me, that I should lose nothing of all that he has given me, but raise it up on the last day. For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who looks on the Son and believes in him should have eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day.” John 6:35-40

—Yo soy el pan de vida —declaró Jesús—. El que a mí viene nunca pasará hambre, y el que en mí cree nunca más volverá a tener sed.Pero como ya les dije, a pesar de que ustedes me han visto, no creen. Todos los que el Padre me da vendrán a mí; y al que a mí viene, no lo rechazo. Porque he bajado del cielo no para hacer mi voluntad sino la del que me envió. Y ésta es la voluntad del que me envió: que yo no pierda nada de lo que él me ha dado, sino que lo resucite en el día final. Porque la voluntad de mi Padre es que todo el que reconozca al Hijo y crea en él, tenga vida eterna, y yo lo resucitaré en el día final.

Offerings and Thanksgiving / Ofrendas e Acción de Gracias – 

A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 13:34-35

»Este mandamiento nuevo les doy: que se amen los unos a los otros. Así como yo los he amado, también ustedes deben amarse los unos a los otros. De este modo todos sabrán que son mis discípulos, si se aman los unos a los otros.

 God Of My Life To Thee I Call

COMMISSION | God Sends His Church

Prayer for all Families / Oración para Familias

God, our heavenly Father, who sets the lonely in families; We commend to your continual care the homes in which your people dwell. Put far from them, we ask you, every root of bitterness, the desire of vain-glory, and the pride of life. Fill them with faith, virtue, knowledge, temperance, patience, godliness. Knit together in constant affection those who, in holy wedlock, have been made one flesh; turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to the fathers; and so enkindle fervent love among us all, that we may always be kind and affectionate with brotherly love; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Dios, nuestro Padre Celestial, que constituyes en familias al solitario; Encomendamos a tu cuidado continuo los hogares en que mora tu pueblo. Aparta de ellos, te suplicamos, toda raíz de amargura, deseo de vanagloria y orgullo de vida. Llénalos con fe, virtud, conocimiento, templanza, paciencia y santidad. Enlaza juntamente en afecto constante aquellos que en santo desposorio, han sido hechos una sola carne; vuelve los corazones de los padres a los hijos, y el corazón de los hijos a los padres; y de tal manera enciende la caridad entre todos nosotros, que seamos siempre afectuosamente unidos en amor fraternal; mediante Jesucristo nuestro Señor. Amén.

Benediction: May the Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace. Amen

Bendición:  ¡Que el Señor te bendiga, y te cuide! ¡Que el Señor haga resplandecer su rostro sobre ti, y tenga de ti misericordia! ¡Que el Señor alce su rostro sobre ti, y ponga en ti paz! Amén
