Prayer of Confession

Leader: Holy God, we know that you are always there to lead us,
yet somehow we lose our way and fall back into fear.

People: We confess that we have stumbled, and we recognize
our need for you to lift us up and help us start again.

Forgive us our failings; restore us to strength; and reconcile us with you, ourselves, and each other, through the power of Christ and the gift of your Spirit. Amen.

May the Sending One sing in you,
May the Seeking One walk with you,

in your gladness and in your grieving.

May the Gifted One relieve you,
May the Given One retrieve you,
May the Giving One receive you,
in your falling and your restoring.

May the Binding One unite you,
May the One Beloved invite you,
May the Loving One delight you,
Three-in-One, joy in life unending.

Gathering Music

Call to Worship Anna Owens

Leader: How manifold are your works, O Lord!

People: In wisdom you have made them all; the earth is full of your creatures.

Leader: You send forth your Spirit, and they are created;

People: And so you renew the face of the earth.

Leader: I will song to the Lord as long as I live;

People: I will praise my God while I have my being.

* Opening Hymn Every Time I Feel the Spirit Spiritual

Solo: Up on the mountain, when my Lord spoke,
Out of God’s mouth came fire and smoke.
Looked all around me, it looked so fine,
Till I asked my Lord if all was mine.

Refrain

Solo: Jordan river, chilly and cold,
It chills the body but not the soul.
There is but one train upon this track;
It runs to heaven and then right back.

Refrain

Offering

Offertory A Pentecost Prayer  Carson Cooman (b. 1982)

O God, who on this day taught the hearts of your faithful people by sending to them the light of your Holy Spirit:
Grant us by the same Spirit to have a right judgement in all things,
and evermore to rejoice in his holy comfort, through Jesus Christ our Lord: Amen.

First Scripture Reading Psalm 104:24-34, 35b

Leader: O Lord, how manifold are your works! In wisdom you have made them all; the earth is full of your creatures.

People: Yonder is the sea, great and wide, creeping things innumerable are there, living things both small and great.

Leader: There go the ships, and Leviathan that you formed
to sport in it.

People: These all look to you to give them their food in due season; when you give to them, they gather it up; when you open your hand, they are filled with good things.

Leader: When you hide your face, they are dismayed; when you take away their breath, they die and return to their dust.

People: When you send forth your spirit, they are created;
and you renew the face of the ground.

Leader: May the glory of the Lord endure forever; may the Lord rejoice in God’s works — who looks on the earth and it trembles, who touches the mountains and they smoke.

People: I will sing to the Lord as long as I live;
I will sing praise to my God while I have 
being.

Leader: May my meditation be pleasing to God,
for I rejoice in the Lord.

People: Let sinners be consumed from the earth,
and let the wicked be no more.
Bless the Lord, O my soul. Praise the Lord!

Time: 6:00 PM — 7:00 PM

Second@Six is a casual, slower-paced, less traditional service held in the sanctuary on Sunday evenings. This service, while not "contemporary," desires to be a place where Reformed worship is honored in a relaxed setting. Prayers, Scripture, and the preached Word are always a part of this service, along with the weekly celebration of the Lord's Supper.

These playlists and clips are usually available on our youtube channel on Wedensday. If you would like a DVD delivered to your address each week, you may subscribe to this service by editing your subscriptions on your church account.
