SUNDAY NOVEMBER 2, 2014 8.30 Order of Service Intimations Call to Worship Hymn 86: With Grateful Heart My Thanks I Bring Prayer of Adoration & Confession and Lord’s Prayer Anthem: Jesu, Word of God Incarnate by Edward Elgar (1857-1934) Bible Reading: Esther 4:1-17 Sermon: Rev. Leon Kruger “Esther is Persuaded to Help” Hymn 359: According to Your Gracious Word Prayer/ Apostle’s Creed / Communion Hymn 534: Lord of Creation to You Be All Praise (Offering) Benediction and Sing the Blessing The Lord’s Prayer Our Father, who art (is) in heaven, hallowed be thy (your) name. Thy (Your) Kingdom come, thy (your) will be done, on earth as it is in heaven Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine (yours) is the kingdom, the power and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen Apostles’ creed I believe in God, the Father Almighty, creator of heaven and earth. I believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried; he descended to the dead. On the third day he rose from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father; from there he will come to judge the living from 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 the life everlasting. Amen. 8.30 Roster for the weeks ahead...
