Worship of the Lord's Day, May 3, 2020
In the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, the Head of the Church.
Elders, Deacons, and Pastor, of The International Christian Church of Minahasa (GMIM USA) welcome to you all.
“Worship the LORD with gladness; come into His presence with singing.

Enter His gates with thanksgiving, and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him, bless His name”

GATHERING OF THE PEOPLE
(L2) Opening Song-Nyanyian Pembukaan
I Love You, Lord
I love you, Lord, and I lift my voice
To worship you, Oh my soul rejoice!
Take joy, my King, in what you hear
May it be a sweet, sweet sound in your ear
I love you, Lord, and I lift my heart
To worship you as my soul demands
Take joy, my King, in what you see
May I be a sweet, sweet child on your knee
(L1) Call to Worship-Panggilan Beribadah
Do you love the Lord our God?
Let us demonstrate our love through our worship today!
Come and tell Him through singing.
Come and tell Him through praise.
Come and tell Him through the silent prayer of your heart.
A great and compassionate God loves us.
Let us give Him our love in return. Come, now and worship.
(P) Invocation and Greeting-Tahbisan dan Salam
In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.
And also with you. Amen.
(Instrumentalia) “I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say”-KJ 144b
(L1) Prayer of Confession-Pengakuan Dosa
With faith and hope, let us confess our sin…………….
Heavenly Father, we lower our heads before You and we confess that we have too often forgotten that we are Yours.
On Sundays we come to this place and You fill us up with Your goodness and light and we are renewed. But when we go out into the world, we fall short in so many ways.
We confess that we are easily influenced by temptations and we fall to all kinds of sins.
We are broken people who constantly lose focus on the cross of Christ. Forgive us for taking for granted the gift of the sacrifice of Your Son on our behalf.
Thank you for being the Good Shepherd who always brings us back.
Please transform our hearts and lives to live every day in the image of Your Son, Jesus. In Whose name we pray, Amen.
Amazing Grace - KJ 40
Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found;
Was blind, but now I see.
’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears relieved;
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed
Through many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
’Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home
(P) Declaration of Forgiveness-Pemberitaan Pengampunan
God is slow to anger and full of compassion. He forgives all who humbly repent and trust in his Son as Saviour and Lord. Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus
In Jesus Christ we are forgiven! Amen.
Since God has forgiven us in Christ, let us forgive one another. The peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.
And also be with you. Amen

(L1)Affirmation of Faith-Pengakuan Iman
Together with all believers throughout the ages, let us confess our affirmation of faith according to the Apostle Creed. Saying:
I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord. He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again 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 the life everlasting. Amen.
The Lord takes pleasure in his people, and he adorns the humble with victory.
Humbly, let us bring and collect our tithes and offering. “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the LORD Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.“ Malachi 3:10
I Know Whom I Have Believed - KJ 387
‘Ku Heran, Allah mau Mem’bri
I know not why God’s wondrous grace, to me He hath made known
Nor why, unworthy, Christ in love, redeemed me for His own
But I know whom I have believed and am persuaded
that He is able to keep that which I’ve committed,
unto Him against that day
I know not how this saving faith to me He did impart
Nor How believing in His word wrought peace within my heart. Ref.
Praise God, from whom all blessing flow; Praise Him, all creatures here below;
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host; Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen.

To God Be The Glory NKB 3
To God be the glory, great things He has done; so loved He the world

And opened the life gate that all may go in.
Ref.: Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, Let the earth hear His voice! Praise the
Lord, praise the Lord, Let the people rejoice! O come to the Father, through
Jesus the Son, And give Him the glory, great things He has done.

With His sheep securely fold you; God be with you till we meet again.

Till we meet, till we meet, God be with you till we meet again
