The Lord’s Supper

Confession of Faith – Westminster Larger Catechism, Q.115-116
Minister: Which is the fourth commandment?
Congregation: The fourth commandment is, Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shall you labor, and do all your work; but the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD your God: in it you shall not do any work, your, nor your son, nor your daughter, your manservant, nor your maidservant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger that is within your gates. For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

Minister: What is required in the fourth commandment?
Congregation: The fourth commandment requires of all men the sanctifying or keeping holy to God such set times as he has appointed in his word, expressly one whole day in seven; which was the seventh from the beginning of the world to the resurrection of Christ, and the first day of the week ever since, and so to continue to the end of the world; which is the Christian sabbath, and in the New Testament called The Lord’s Day.

Confession of Sin – (based on Heidelberg Catechism, Q.103)
Minister: In light of the truth that we have broken this command, let us confess our sin to God.
Congregation: Creator God, we bow to confess to you this day that we have not kept the Sabbath Day as you prescribed. We have not given proper care in ordering our week so that we might set aside one day in seven for proper rest and worship. We have not been diligent in making the Lord’s Day a priority. We have neglected public worship and the means of grace that you have given us – the Word, the sacraments, and prayer. Too often we have sought our own pleasures on Your Day rather than the things to which you give priority. Forgive us, Lord. Help us to seek first your kingdom and your righteousness, rather than adding unto ourselves the things of this world. We pray in the name of Jesus, in whom we find eternal rest. Amen.

Assurance of Pardon
Hear the good news!:
Jesus said, “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” (Matthew 11:28-30)

Invitation to Communicants

Words of Institution

“For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, “This is my body which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way also after Supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.” For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.” (1 Corinthians 11:23-26)
