Welcome, Announcements, and Prayer

Prayer of Confession
Almighty and merciful God, we have erred and strayed from your ways like lost sheep. We have followed too much the devices and desires of our own hearts. We have offended against your holy laws. We have left undone those things which we ought to have done; and we have done those things which we ought not to have done.
O Lord, have mercy upon us. Spare those who confess their faults. Restore those who are penitent, according to your promises declared to the world in Christ Jesus our Lord. And grant, O merciful God, for his sake, that we may live a holy, just, and humble life to the glory of your holy name. (Time for Silent Confession)

Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!
Oh, what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood.
Refrain This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long;
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long.
Perfect submission, perfect delight,
Visions of rapture now burst on my sight;
Angels, descending, bring from above
Echoes of mercy, whispers of love. (Refrain)
Perfect submission, all is at rest,
I in my Savior am happy and blest,
Watching and waiting, looking above,
Filled with His goodness, lost in His love. (Refrain)
Charge and Blessing
Sharing God's Love is an amazing crisis ministry for residents of Irmo, South Carolina: Every Thursday we pick up and deliver essential items that families need. For now, they need Non-Perishable Food Items and Personal Care Products.
Safe Public Worship Guidelines:
If in the last 14 days you've experienced symptoms of fever, cough, shortness of breath, or been exposed to COVID-19, we ask you to join us from home, and not in person.
If you have been tested for COVID-19, but are asymptomatic, we would love to be in prayer for you, and in touch with you, and ask that you join us for online worship, until you receive the results of your test.
If you can let us know that you're coming, we will hold a space for you:
With social distancing requirements in effect, we have limited seating.
Everyone is expected to wear a mask covering nose and mouth at all times: Only the pastor and worship leaders will go mask-less, when speaking/singing
We are so grateful for your support and giving. We will ask for offerings to be made online
- we will not pass an offering plate.
Please bring your own coffee, if love coffee as much as we do, and would like to drink some before, during, or after worship.
Doors will be propped for entry and exit.
We cannot provide either Nursery Care or Sunday School, at this time.
Our worship service will be between 30-40 minutes long.
Seating will be in family units, 6 feet apart.
We will only have congregational singing for the final hymn/song.
We love to visit and linger before and after worship, but - for now - we just can't do that.
