Call to Worship: God Gathers His Church
Ascribe to the Lord, O heavenly beings,
ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
Ascribe to the Lordthe glory due his name;
worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness.
The voice of the Lord is over the waters;
the God of glory thunders,
the Lord, over many waters.
The voice of the Lord is powerful;
the voice of the Lord is full of majesty.
The voice of the Lord flashes forth flames of fire.
The voice of the Lord shakes the wilderness;
the Lord shakes the wilderness of Kadesh.
and in his temple all cry, “Glory!”
The Lord sits enthroned over the flood;
the Lord sits enthroned as king forever.
May the Lord give strength to his people!
May the Lord bless his people with peace! (Psalm 29)
Tributen al Señor, seres celestiales,
tributen al Señorla gloria y el poder.
Tributen al Señorla gloria que merece su nombre;
póstrense ante el Señoren su santuario majestuoso.
La voz del Señor está sobre las aguas;
resuena el trueno del Dios de la gloria;
el Señor está sobre las aguas impetuosas.
La voz del Señor resuena potente;
la voz del Señor resuena majestuosa.
La voz del Señor lanza ráfagas de fuego;
la voz del Señor sacude al desierto;
el Señor sacude al desierto de Cades.
en su templo todos gritan: «¡Gloria!»
El Señor tiene su trono sobre las lluvias;
el Señor reina por siempre.
El Señor fortalece a su pueblo;
el Señor bendice a su pueblo con la paz. (Salmo 29)
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.

Confession of Sins | God Forgives His People
Minister: Brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the holy places by the blood of Jesus, let us draw near and humbly confess our sins to God.
Ministro: Hermanos, tenemos plena libertad para entrar en el Lugar Santísimo, mediante la sangre de Jesús, entonces déjenos acercarnos para confesar nuestros pecados a Dios.
O Lord God, you are patient toward us; you do not want any of us to perish, but that all should reach repentance. But we are not patient with you. We confess that we have not pursued lives of holiness and godliness; we do not always long for the coming of the Lord, or look forward to the new heavens and new earth. We are often immersed in the things of this world and swept away in the flood of our own activities, desires, and interests. And so we cry out, Save me, O God! For the waters have come up to my neck. I sink in deep mire, where there is no foothold; I have come into deep waters, and the flood sweeps over me. But in your patience we shall find our deliverance. Amen
Oh Señor Dios, tiene paciencia con nosotros; no quieres que nadie perezca, sino que todos llegamos a arrepentirnos. Pero aveces no tenemos paciencia contigo. Confesamos que no hemos seguido vidas de santidad y piedad; no siempre anhelamos la venida del Señor, o esperamos al cielo nuevo y la tierra nueva. A menudo estamos sumergidos en las cosas de este mundo y arrastrados por el torrente de nuestras propias actividades, deseos e intereses. Y entonces te clamamos, ¡Sálvame, Dios mío, que las aguas ya me llegan al cuello. Me estoy hundiendo en una ciénaga profunda, y no tengo dónde apoyar el pie. Estoy en medio de profundas aguas, y me arrastra la corriente.En tu paciencia encontramos nuestra salvación. Amén
Silent prayer/Orar en silencio

M: Que el Dios omnipotente, que envió a su Hijo al mundo para salvar a los pecadores,
te entregue su perdón y paz, ahora y por siempre. Amén.

Consecration: God Equips His Church
Scripture Reading — 2 Peter 3:2-13
Remember the predictions of the holy prophets and the commandment of the Lord and Savior through your apostles, knowing this first of all, that scoffers will come in the last days with scoffing, following their own sinful desires.They will say, “Where is the promise of his coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all things are continuing as they were from the beginning of creation.” For they deliberately overlook this fact, that the heavens existed long ago, and the earth was formed out of water and through water by the word of God,and that by means of these the world that then existed was deluged with water and perished. But by the same word the heavens and earth that now exist are stored up for fire, being kept until the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly. But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance. But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a roar, and the heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved, and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed. Since all these things are thus to be dissolved, what sort of people ought you to be in lives of holiness and godliness, waiting for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be set on fire and dissolved, and the heavenly bodies will melt as they burn! But according to his promise we are waiting for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.
Collect. O God, whose blessed Son made himself known to his disciples in the breaking of bread: Open the eyes of our faith, that we may behold him in all his redeeming work; who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
Message: God’s Promise to Renew the World in Christ – Genesis 9:1-17
And God blessed Noah and his sons and said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth. The fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth and upon every bird of the heavens, upon everything that creeps on the ground and all the fish of the sea. Into your hand they are delivered. Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you. And as I gave you the green plants, I give you everything. But you shall not eat flesh with its life, that is, its blood. And for your lifeblood I will require a reckoning: from every beast I will require it and from man. From his fellow man I will require a reckoning for the life of man.
“Whoever sheds the blood of man,
by man shall his blood be shed,
for God made man in his own image.
And you, be fruitful and multiply, increase greatly on the earth and multiply in it.”
Then God said to Noah and to his sons with him,“Behold, I establish my covenant with you and your offspring after you,and with every living creature that is with you, the birds, the livestock, and every beast of the earth with you, as many as came out of the ark; it is for every beast of the earth.I establish my covenant with you, that never again shall all flesh be cut off by the waters of the flood, and never again shall there be a flood to destroy the earth.”And God said, “This is the sign of the covenant that I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for all future generations:I have set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and the earth.When I bring clouds over the earth and the bow is seen in the clouds,I will remember my covenant that is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh. And the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh.When the bow is in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth.”God said to Noah, “This is the sign of the covenant that I have established between me and all flesh that is on the earth.”

Confession of Faith: God Saves His Church
Congregation Recites – 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.
*The word catholic means universal and refers to the whole Christian church throughout the world. / La palabra *catholic quire decir universal y se refiere a toda la iglesia cristiana en todo el mundo.

Thus says the Lord, who created you, who formed you:
“Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by name, you are mine.
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you;
For I am the Lord your God,
the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.
C: Many waters cannot quench love,
neither can floods drown it. (Song of Solomon 8:7)
Así dice el Señor, el que te creó, que te formó, Israel:
«No temas, que yo te he redimido;
te he llamado por tu nombre; tú eres mío.
Cuando cruces las aguas, yo estaré contigo;
cuando cruces los ríos, no te negarán sus aguas;
Porque yo soy el Señor, tu Dios,
el Santo de Israel, tu salvador.
C: Muchas aguas no pueden apagar el amor,
ni los ríos pueden extinguirlo. (Cantares 8:7)
