In the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, the Head of the Church.
Elders, Deacons, and Pastor of The International Christian Church of Minahasa (GMIM USA ) welcome to you all.
Worship the LORD with gladness; come into His presence with singing.
It is He that made us, and we are His; we are His people, and the sheep of His pasture.
Enter His gates with thanksgiving, and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him, bless His name”

(L2) Opening Song-Nyanyian Pembukaan (Stand)
Great is Thy Faithfulness
Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father;
There is no shadow of turning with Thee;
Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not;
As Thou hast been, Thou forever will be.
Ref.: Great is Thy faithfulness! Great is Thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see.
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided;
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!
Summer and winter and springtime and harvest,
Sun, moon and stars in their courses above
Join with all nature in manifold witness
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love…..Ref.
(L1) Call To Worship-Panggilan Beribadah
Bless God, all people, let the sound of God’s praise be heard.
God has kept us among the living and has not let our feet slip.
Even though tested by fire and led through the water,
Yet has God brought us out to a spacious place.
Let us praise God!
(P)Invocation and Greeting-Tahbisan dan Salam

And also with you. Amen.

(L1) Prayer of Confession-Pengakuan Dosa
With faith and hope, let us confess our sin…………….
Gracious God, we confess that we have not always listened to your Son.
He would teach us forgiveness, but we cling to our grudges. He would have us reach out to the poor and lonely, but we give
priority to the others for the sake of self-satisfaction.
In so many ways we have turned a deaf ear to his call. Thus we come seeking your forgiveness, and the strength that comes from your Spirit to do better.
We ask this in Christ’s name. Amen.
Rock of Ages, Cleft for Me
Rock of Ages, cleft for me, Let me hide myself in Thee;
Let the water and the blood, From Thy wounded side which flowed,
Be of sin the double cure; Save from wrath and make me pure.
(P)Declaration of Forgiveness-Pemberitaan Pengampunan
Hear the good news! Who is in a position to condemn? Only Christ, and Christ died for us, Christ rose for us, Christ reigns in power for us, Christ prays for us. Anyone who is in Christ is a new creation. The old life has gone; a new life has begun. Know that you are forgiven and be at peace.
In Jesus Christ we are forgiven! Amen.
Since God has forgiven us in Christ, let us forgive one another. The peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.
And also be with you. Amen
Let us share the peace and love of God, and forgive one another.
Hear the Word of the Lord
