But as for me it is good to be near God. Psalm 73:28
As we begin to worship please remember that we have no greater privilege and honor than to be called into the presence of God by His gracious love. We come to Him through the merit of Christ Crucified. We come in the power of the Holy Spirit and with God’s promise that He will draw near us(James 4:8). May our gracious Lord draw near to you wonderfully in this worship service today. May you be blessed through the worship of our most high God as we reflect upon His goodness and grace to us through Jesus Christ our Lord and the Holy Spirit. It is our prayer you will feel at home among us and hope you will sense God's gracious and glorious presence here at St. Paul's and return soon.

3. How are these commandments divided?
Into two tables: the first of which teaches, in four commandments, what duties we owe to God; the second, in six, what duties we owe to our neighbor.
94. What does God require in the first commandment?
That, on peril of my soul’s salvation, I avoid and flee all idolatry, sorcery, enchantments, invocation of saints or of other creatures; and that I rightly acknowledge the only true God, trust in Him alone, with all humility and patience expect all good from Him only, and love, fear, and honor Him with my whole heart; so as rather to renounce all creatures than to do the least thing against His will.
95. What is idolatry?
Idolatry is to conceive or have something else in which to place our trust instead of, or besides, the one true God who has revealed Himself in His Word.
I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth. And in Jesus Christ, His only-begotten Son, our Lord: who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; He descended into hell; the third day He rose from the dead; He ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; From there He will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost, the holy, universal Christian church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.
Our Faithfulness in Giving
And God’s Faithfulness!
- We are to be generously and faithfully give to the Lord’s work!
2. We give knowing He who has provided us with everything, will be faithful to us, even to bless us!
