Pre-Service Prayer:

Dearest Savior, as we enter Your house to sin praises to Your holy name, fill us with the joy of salvation! Do not allow our fears and sins to overwhelm us, but rather forgive us and uphold us by Your grace and through Your power. Cause us to treasure the fellowship in the Gospel that we share with our fellow believers and with You. In Your saving name we pray. Amen.

Pre-Service Devotion: 

Psalm 145

First Reading: 

Deuteronomy 18:15-19

God promised through Moses to send a Prophet to speak His Word to them. He charged to hear and accept that Word. Jesus was that promised “Prophet.” Let us hear Him and rejoice in the truth of His Word, which leads us to eternal life!

Second Reading: 

John 1:14-18

John reports that Jesus was the eternal Word of God Who became flesh. Unlike Moses, through whom God delivered His law, Jesus brought the truth of God’s grace. Let us hear and always treasure His precious words!
