崇拜礼仪 Our Worship Liturgy
Reformed worship is based on the action of God and the response of Man. The following four movements (Gathering, the Word, the Eucharist and Sending) need to be understood in this framework. Our worship liturgy is based on the Book of Common Worship prepared by the theology and worship ministry unit of The Presbyterian Church (USA)
Call to Worship
The people are called to worship God.
Adoration is the keynote of all true worship.
Confession and Pardon.
The people are called to confess the reality of sin in personal and common life. The assurance of God’s forgiving grace is declared in the name of Jesus Christ.
Praise is given to the Triune God.
(Hymn or praise from children choir)
The children choir expresses thanksgiving on behalf of the people.
Hymn and Praise.
With gladness, God is praised in songs.
Prayers of the People and Prayer for Illumination.
We acknowledge God’s presence in the world and in daily life. This prayer then seeks the illumination of the Holy Spirit and calls upon God to make us receptive to the life-giving Word.
(Hymn or praise from Adult choir)
A hymn or other song related to the sermon is sung.
Scripture Reading and Sermon.
After the Bible has been read, its message is then proclaimed.
The Christian life is marked by the offering of one’s self to God to be shaped, empowered, directed and changed by God.
Invitation and Great Thanksgiving.
The minister invites the people to the Lord’s table and then gives thanks to God.
Breaking of the Bread and Communion of the People.
The minister takes the bread and breaks it, and pours wine into a cup as a reminder that Christ’s body was broken and his blood is shed for all. The bread and wine are then served to the people.
Hymn and Praise.
The congregation sings a hymn, spiritual, or psalm in response to God.
Charge and Blessing.
A formal dismissal using a charge to the people to go into the world in the name of Christ and a blessing using a Trinitarian benediction concludes the service.
We greet one another in peace, and welcome any newcomers into our midst.
We share news and reminders of things happening in our community.
