O God, we pray for Christ Covenant Church,
that she may be filled with the knowledge of your holy will
in all spiritual wisdom and understanding,

that she may walk in a manner worthy of the Lord,
fully pleasing to him in every way:
bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God.
For the glory of Christ and the good of his church, Amen (Col. 1:9-10)

Oh Dios, oramos por esta congregación,
que sea lleno del conocimiento de tu santa voluntad
en toda sabiduría y plena comprensión espiritual,
para que ande como es digno del Señor
a fin de agradarle en todo de manera:
que produzca fruto en toda buena obra y que crezca en el conocimiento de Dios
Por la gloria de Cristo y el bien de su iglesia, Amén (Col. 1: 9-10)

Scripture Reading and Prayers / Lectura y Oracion – Psalm / Salmo 123

To you I lift up my eyes,
    O you who are enthroned in the heavens!
Behold, as the eyes of servants
    look to the hand of their master,
as the eyes of a maidservant
    to the hand of her mistress,
so our eyes look to the Lord our God,
    till he has mercy upon us.

Have mercy upon us, O Lord, have mercy upon us.

Hacia ti dirijo la mirada,
    hacia ti, cuyo trono está en el cielo.
Como dirigen los esclavos la mirada
    hacia la mano de su amo,
como dirige la esclava la mirada
    hacia la mano de su ama,
así dirigimos la mirada al Señor nuestro Dios,
    hasta que nos muestre compasión.

Compadécenos, Señor, compadécenos.

Invocation /Invocación 

Lord’s Prayer / El Padre Nuestro

Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name.

Your kingdom come, your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For yours is the kingdom
and the power and the glory forever.

Padre nuestro que estás en el cielo,
santificado sea tu nombre.
Venga tu reino; Hágase tu voluntad,
como en el cielo, así también en la tierra.
El pan nuestro de cada día, dánoslo hoy.
Y perdónanos nuestras deudas,
como también nosotros perdonamos a nuestros deudores.
Y no nos metas en tentación,
mas líbranos del mal;
porque tuyo es el reino,
y el poder, y la gloria, por todos los siglos.

– 10,000 Reasons / Razones (Psalm 103)

Confession of Sins | God Forgives His Church

Minister: Brothers and sisters, if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (Be seated)

Ministro:  Hermanos, si confesamos nuestros pecados, Dios, que es fiel y justo, nos los perdonará y nos limpiará de toda maldad. (Sentados)

C: Father eternal, giver of light and grace, we have sinned against you and against our neighbor, in thought, word, and deed, through ignorance, through weakness, through our own deliberate fault. We have wounded your love and marred your image in us. We are ashamed and sorry, and we repent of all our sins. For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ, who died for us, we humbly ask you to forgive us all that is past; and lead us out from darkness to walk as children of light. Amen.

C: Padre eterno, dador de luz y de gracia, hemos pecado contra ti y contra nuestro prójimo, en pensamiento, palabras, y obras, sea por ignorancia, por debilidad, por nuestra culpa deliberada. Hemos herido tu amor y empañado tu imagen en nosotros. Lo sentimos mucho y nos avergonzamos, y nos arrepentimos de todos nuestros pecados. Por el bien de tu Hijo Jesucristo, que murió por nosotros, te pedimos humildement, que nos perdones de todo los pecados del pasado; y que nos saque de la oscuridad para que caminemos como hijos de luz. Amén. 

Silent prayer / Orar en silencio

Assurance of Pardon / Seguridad de Perdón – 

M: Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior. But now he has reconciledyou by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation— if you continue in the faith, stable and steadfast, not shifting from the hope of the gospel. Col. 1:21-23

M: En otro tiempo ustedes, por su actitud y sus malas acciones, estaban alejados de Dios y eran sus enemigos. Pero ahora Dios, a fin de presentarlos santos, intachables e irreprochables delante de él, los ha reconciliado en el cuerpo mortal de Cristo mediante su muerte, con tal de que se mantengan firmes en la fe, bien cimentados y estables, sin abandonar la esperanza que ofrece el evangelio.

Lift up your hearts and worship the Lord.

Alzen sus corzones y adoren al Señor.

Consecration | God Equips His Church

Scripture Reading and Prayer – Proverbs 31:11-31

An excellent wife who can find?
    She is far more precious than jewels.
The heart of her husband trusts in her,
    and he will have no lack of gain.
She does him good, and not harm,
    all the days of her life.
She seeks wool and flax,
    and works with willing hands.
She is like the ships of the merchant;
    she brings her food from afar.
She rises while it is yet night
    and provides food for her household
    and portions for her maidens.
She considers a field and buys it;
    with the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard.
She dresses herself[e] with strength
    and makes her arms strong.
She perceives that her merchandise is profitable.
    Her lamp does not go out at night.
She puts her hands to the distaff,
    and her hands hold the spindle.
She opens her hand to the poor
    and reaches out her hands to the needy.
She is not afraid of snow for her household,
    for all her household are clothed in scarlet.[f]
She makes bed coverings for herself;
    her clothing is fine linen and purple.
Her husband is known in the gates
    when he sits among the elders of the land.
She makes linen garments and sells them;
    she delivers sashes to the merchant.
Strength and dignity are her clothing,
    and she laughs at the time to come.
She opens her mouth with wisdom,
    and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.
She looks well to the ways of her household
    and does not eat the bread of idleness.
Her children rise up and call her blessed;
    her husband also, and he praises her:
“Many women have done excellently,
    but you surpass them all.”
Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain,
    but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
Give her of the fruit of her hands,
    and let her works praise her in the gates.

Collect: Set us free, O God, from the bondage of our sins, and give us the liberty of that abundant life which you have made known to us in your Son, our Savior Jesus Christ; who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen

Sermon: Rules for Wives / Colossians 3:11-18

Here there is not Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free; but Christ is all, and in all. Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.

Confession of Faith 

Congregation Reads – 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 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.

– How Deep the Father’s Love for Us 

Communion | God Nourishes His Church

The Lord’s Supper is for to all baptized believers in good standing with an evangelical Church.

La Santa Cena es para cada creyente bautizado en sana relacion con una Iglesia evangélica.

Words of Institution — 1 Cor. 11:23-26

The Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, “This is my body, which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.”

Yo recibí del Señor lo mismo que les transmití a ustedes: Que el Señor Jesús, la noche en que fue traicionado, tomó pan, y, después de dar gracias, lo partió y dijo: «Este pan es mi cuerpo, que por ustedes entrego; hagan esto en memoria de mí».

In the same way also he took the cup, after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.”

De la misma manera, después de cenar, tomó la copa y dijo: «Esta copa es el nuevo pacto en mi sangre; hagan esto, cada vez que beban de ella, en memoria de mi.

Reflection / Reflexion – Colossians 1:18-20

Jesus Christ is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent. For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.

Jesucristo es la cabeza del cuerpo, que es la iglesia. Él es el principio, el primogénito de la resurrección, para ser en todo el primero. Porque a Dios le agradó habitar en él con toda su plenitud y, por medio de él, reconciliar consigo todas las cosas, tanto las que están en la tierra como las que están en el cielo, haciendo la paz mediante la sangre que derramó en la cruz.


As you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving. Col. 2:6

Tal como recibieron a Cristo Jesús como Señor, vivan ahora en él, arraigados y edificados en él, confirmados en la fe como se les enseñó, y llenos de gratitud.

Offerings and Thanksgiving / Ofrendas e Acción de Gracias – Micah / Miqueas 6:6, 8

“With what shall I come before the Lord,
    and bow myself before God on high?
He has told you, O man, what is good;
    and what does the Lord require of you
but to do justice, and to love kindness,
    and to walk humbly with your God?

¿Cómo podré acercarme al Señor
    y postrarme ante el Dios Altísimo?
¡Ya se te ha declarado lo que es bueno!

    Ya se te ha dicho lo que de ti espera el Señor:
Practicar la justicia, amar la misericordia,
        y humillarte ante tu Dios.

COMMISSION | God Sends His Church

Missional Benediction / Bendición Misional 

As you go, walk in wisdom toward outsiders, making the best use of the time. Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person. Col. 4:5-6

Mientras van, anden sabiamente para con los de afuera, redimiendo el tiempo. Que la palabra de ustedes sea siempre agradable, sazonada con sal, para que sepan cómo les conviene responder a cada uno.

M: May God be gracious to us and bless us
and make his face to shine upon us, Selah
that your way may be known on earth,
your saving power among all nations.
C: Let the peoples praise you, O God;
    let all the peoples praise you! Psalm 67:1-3  

M: Dios nos tenga compasión y nos bendiga;
Dios haga resplandecer su rostro sobre nosotros,
para que se conozcan en la tierra sus caminos,
y entre todas las naciones su salvación.
C: Que te alaben, oh Dios, los pueblos;
    que todos los pueblos te alaben.
