Call to Worship | God Gathers His Church

– Praise to the Lord, the Almighty

I will extol you, O Lord, for you have drawn me up
and have not let my foes rejoice over me.
O Lord my God, I cried to you for help, and you have healed me.
O Lord, you have brought up my soul from Sheol;
    you restored me to life from among those who go down to the pit.
Sing praises to the Lord, O you his saints,
and give thanks to his holy name.
For his anger is but for a moment,
and his favor is for a lifetime.
Weeping may tarry for the night,
but joy comes with the morning.
You have turned for me my mourning into dancing;
    you have loosed my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness,
that my glory may sing your praise and not be silent.
    O Lord my God, I will give thanks to you forever! (Psalm 30)

Te exaltaré, Señor, porque me levantaste,
porque no dejaste que mis enemigos se burlaran de mí.
Señor mi Dios, te pedí ayuday me sanaste.
Tú, Señor, me sacaste del sepulcro;
    me hiciste revivir de entre los muertos.
Canten al Señor, ustedes sus fieles;
alaben su santo nombre.
Porque solo un instante dura su enojo,
pero toda una vida su bondad.
Si por la noche hay llanto,
por la mañana habrá gritos de alegría.
Convertiste mi lamento en danza;
    me quitaste la ropa de lutoy me vestiste de fiesta,
para que te cante y te glorifique,
    y no me quede callado.
¡Señor mi Dios, siempre te daré gracias!

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.
Amen

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.
Amen.

– Pass Me Not O Gentle Savior

Confession of Sins | God Forgives His People

Minister: Let us humble ourselves and confess our sins to God.

Ministro: Que nos humillemos y confesar nuestros pecados a Dios.

C: O Lord God, apart from Christ I dare not lift my eyes to heaven, for I am a person of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips. O God, be merciful to me, a sinner. 

C: Oh Señor Dios, aparte de Cristo no me atrevo siquiera a levantar mis ojos al cielo, porque soy una persona de labios impuros y habito en medio de un pueblo de labios también impuros. Dios mío, ten misericordia de mí, un pecador.

The Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words. And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God. Rom. 8:26-27

En nuestra debilidad el Espíritu acude a ayudarnos. No sabemos qué pedir, pero el Espíritu mismo intercede por nosotros con gemidos que no pueden expresarse con palabras. Y Dios, que examina los corazones, sabe cuál es la intención del Espíritu, porque el Espíritu intercede por los creyentes conforme a la voluntad de Dios. 

Silent prayer/Orar en silencio 

Assurance of Pardon / Seguridad de Perdón – 

M: There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. Rom. 8:1-2

M: Ya no hay ninguna condenación para los que están unidos a Cristo Jesús, pues por medio de él la ley del Espíritu de vida me ha liberado de la ley del pecado y de la muerte.

Now, lift up your hearts. We lift them up to the Lord.

Ahora, levanten sus corazones. Los levantamos al Señor.

Consecration | God Equips His Church

Scripture Reading and Prayer – Deuteronomy 16:13–20; Acts 6:1-7

OT – You shall keep the Feast of Booths seven days, when you have gathered in the produce from your threshing floor and your winepress. You shall rejoice in your feast, you and your son and your daughter, your male servant and your female servant, the Levite, the sojourner, the fatherless, and the widow who are within your towns. For seven days you shall keep the feast to the LORD your God at the place that the LORD will choose, because the LORD your God will bless you in all your produce and in all the work of your hands, so that you will be altogether joyful…Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the LORD your God that he has given you. You shall appoint judges and officers in all your towns that the LORD your God is giving you, according to your tribes, and they shall judge the people with righteous judgment. You shall not pervert justice. You shall not show partiality, and you shall not accept a bribe, for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and subverts the cause of the righteous. Justice, and only justice, you shall follow, that you may live and inherit the land that the LORD your God is giving you. (ESV)

NT – Now in these days when the disciples were increasing in number, a complaint by the Hellenists arose against the Hebrews because their widows were being neglected in the daily distribution. And the twelve summoned the full number of the disciples and said, “It is not right that we should give up preaching the word of God to serve tables. Therefore, brothers, pick out from among you seven men of good repute, full of the Spirit and of wisdom, whom we will appoint to this duty. But we will devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the word.” And what they said pleased the whole gathering, and they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and of the Holy Spirit, and Philip, and Prochorus, and Nicanor, and Timon, and Parmenas, and Nicolaus, a proselyte of Antioch. These they set before the apostles, and they prayed and laid their hands on them. And the word of God continued to increase, and the number of the disciples multiplied greatly in Jerusalem, and a great many of the priests became obedient to the faith.

Collect: O God, you have taught us to keep all your commandments by loving you and our neighbor: Grant us the grace of your Holy Spirit, that we may be devoted to you with our whole heart, and united to one another with pure affection; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen

Sermon: Acts 6:1-7

Pastoral Prayer — Based on Psalm 68

Father of the fatherless and protector of widows
    is God in his holy habitation.
God settles the solitary in a home;
    he leads out the prisoners to prosperity,
    but the rebellious dwell in a parched land.

–  O Tu Fidelidad / Great is Thy Faithfulness**

** Kids return to worship. / Toda la congregación vuelve a reunirse.

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.
Amen

Prayers of Thanksgiving for the Body and Blood of Christ

O merciful Lord, we do not presume to come to your Table, trusting in our own righteousness, but in your manifold and great mercies. We are not worthy so much as to gather up the crumbs under your Table. But you are merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness: Grant us therefore, gracious Lord, so to eat the flesh of your beloved Son Jesus Christ, and to drink his blood, that our sinful bodies may be made clean by his Body, and our souls washed through his most precious Blood, and that we may evermore dwell in him, and he in us. Amen. (Prayer of Humble Access / adapted by JMT)

Acción de Gracias por el Cuerpo y Sangre de Cristo

Oh Señor misericordioso, nosotros no nos atrevemos a venir a tu Mesa, confiando en nuestra rectitud ni justicia, sino en tus muchas y grandes misericordias. No somos dignos ni aún de recoger las migajas debajo de tu Mesa. Mas Tú eres clemente y compasivo, lento para la ira y grande en amor y fidelidad: concédenos, Señor, por tu gracia, que de tal modo comamos la carne de tu amado Hijo Jesucristo, y bebamos su sangre, que nuestros cuerpos pecadores sean limpios por su Cuerpo, y nuestras almas lavadas por su preciosa Sangre; y que siempre vivamos en El, y El en nosotros. Amén

Words of Institution  / Palabras de Institución – 1 Cor. 11:23-26

For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that 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.” 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.”

Yo recibí del Señor lo mismo que les he enseñado a ustedes: Que la noche que fue entregado, el Señor Jesús tomó pan, y que luego de dar gracias, lo partió y dijo: «Tomen y coman. Esto es mi cuerpo, que por ustedes es partido; hagan esto en mi memoria.» Asimismo, después de cenar tomó la copa y dijo: «Esta copa es el nuevo pacto en mi sangre; hagan esto, cada vez que la beban, en mi memoria.»

Communion Served at the Table / Comunion Servido en la Mesa

Response / Respuesta

For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes. Thanks be to God for his inexpressible gift!

Porque cada vez que comen este pan y beben de esta copa, proclaman la muerte del Señor hasta que él venga. ¡Gracias a Dios por su don inefable!

May the body and blood of our Lord Jesus Christ strengthen and preserve you steadfast in the true faith unto everlasting life. In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

Que el cuerpo y la sangre de nuestro Señor Jesucristo te fortalezcan y te conserven firme en la fe verdadera para vida eterna. En el nombre del Padre, y del Hijo, y del Espíritu Santo.
