CHIMING OF THE HOUR

 WELCOME

 CALL TO WORSHIP

 Let’s gather together in the presence of our God.

Let’s bring our songs of praise and our prayers of thanksgiving.

Let us bow down in worship before the Lord our Maker.

 Arise, O God, and enter Your sanctuary,

You, and the ark of Your strength.

Clothe us in justice and faithfulness,

and put new songs of joy and praise in our mouths.

 Let’s worship God together! 

INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC   We Gather Together

 PRAYER OF CONFESSION

 You, God, are our one and only King.  We beg your forgiveness for the other “kings” that we kneel before:  money, power, gossip,  self-righteousness, racial privilege.  We beg your forgiveness, we who are broken and torn apart by our own doings and un-doings. Guide us to be your servants. Lead us to trust in you as the only king we need. Direct our faith in your sovereign power as we strive to follow your Son, through the power of your Holy Spirit, we pray.  Amen.

 SERMON   “Where Is Your Citizenship?”

  SCRIPTURES

 Psalm 132:1-12

 1 Lord, remember David and all his self-denial.
2 He swore an oath to the Lord, he made a vow to the Mighty One of Jacob:
3 “I will not enter my house or go to my bed,
4 I will allow no sleep to my eyes or slumber to my eyelids,
5 till I find a place for the Lord, a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob.”
6 We heard it in Ephrathah, we came upon it in the fields of Jaar:[a]
7 “Let us go to his dwelling place let us worship at his footstool, saying,
8 ‘Arise, Lord, and come to your resting place, you and the ark of your might.
9 May your priests be clothed with your righteousness; may your faithful people sing
for joy.’”
10 For the sake of your servant David, do not reject your anointed one.
11 The Lord swore an oath to David, a sure oath he will not revoke: “One of your
own descendants I will place on your throne.
12 If your sons keep my covenant and the statutes I teach them, then their sons will
sit on your throne for ever and ever.”

John 18:33-37

 33 Pilate then went back inside the palace, summoned Jesus and asked him, “Are you the king of the Jews?” 34 “Is that your own idea,” Jesus asked, “or did others talk to you about me?” 35 “Am I a Jew?” Pilate replied. “Your own people and chief priests handed you over to me. What is it you have done?” 36 Jesus said, “My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, my servants would fight to prevent my arrest by the Jewish leaders. But now my kingdom is from another place.” 37 “You are a king, then!” said Pilate. Jesus answered, “You say that I am a king. In fact, the reason I was born and came into the world is to testify to the truth.  Everyone on the side of truth listens to me.”  

PASTORAL PRAYER  and THE LORD’S PRAYER

 AFFIRMATION OF FAITH  

Jesus is our living Lord.  Jesus was dead and buried, but God raised him from the dead.  The risen Lord appeared to his followers, who recognized him as their Master, who had been crucified.  We declare that Jesus’ resurrection is a decisive victory over the powers that deform and destroy human life.  His lordship is hidden:  the world appears to be dominated by people and systems that do not acknowledge his rule.  But his lordship is real:  it demands our loyalty, and sets us free from the fear of all lesser lords who threaten us.  Jesus has been Lord from the beginning.  He will be Lord at the end.  Even now, Jesus is our living Lord.                             

Our Affirmation of Faith is a portion of our 80 line A Brief Statement of Faith,

for using Giveplus+ and they give you the option to absorb that fee.  Contact the
