Anthem “Worship God With Music”
Sermon “Article of Faith: Love in Action”
Musical Interlude (you are invited to use this time for prayer and personal reflection)
Affirmation of Faith The Confession of 1967
God’s sovereign love is a mystery beyond the reach of the
human mind. Human thought ascribes to God superlatives of power, wisdom, and goodness. But God reveals divine love in Jesus Christ by showing power in the form of a servant, wisdom in the folly of the cross, and goodness in receiving sinful men and women. The power of God’s love in Christ to transform the world discloses that the Redeemer is the Lord and Creator who made all things to serve the purpose of God’s love.
