Welcome to a Gathering of EChurch@Wartburg Ferry

Here is our Order of Worship

Venite, exultemus Domino.
From the 1928 Book of Common Prayer link

O COME, let us sing unto the LORD; * let us heartily rejoice in the strength of our salvation.
Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving; * and show ourselves glad in him with psalms.
For the LORD is a great God; * and a great King above all gods.
In his hand are all the corners of the earth; * and the strength of the hills is his also.
The sea is his, and he made it; * and his hands prepared the dry land.
O come, let us worship and fall down, * and kneel before the LORD our Maker.
For he is the Lord our God; * and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand.
O worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness; * let the whole earth stand in awe of him.
For he cometh, for he cometh to judge the earth; * and with righteousness to judge the world, and the peoples with his truth.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost;
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end.

A Prayer for All Conditions of Men.
The 1928 Book of Common Prayer link

O God, the Creator and Preserver of all mankind,
we humbly beseech thee for all sorts and conditions of men;
that thou wouldest be pleased to make thy ways known unto them, thy saving health unto all nations.
More especially we pray for thy holy Church universal;
that it may be so guided and governed by thy good Spirit,
that all who profess and call themselves Christians may be led into the way of truth,
,and hold the faith in unity of spirit, in the bond of peace, and in righteousness of life.
Finally, we commend to thy fatherly goodness
all those who are any ways afflicted, or distressed, in mind, body, or estate;
 that it may please thee to comfort and relieve them, according to their several necessities;
giving them patience under their sufferings, and a happy issue out of all their afflictions.
And this we beg for Jesus Christ's sake.

Luke 3:15-20 (NASB Bible Gateway)

Now while the people were in a state of expectation and all were wondering in their hearts about John, as to whether he was the Christ,  John answered and said to them all, “As for me, I baptize you with water; but One is coming who is mightier than I, and I am not fit to untie the thong of His sandals; He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.  His winnowing fork is in His hand to thoroughly clear His threshing floor, and to gather the wheat into His barn; but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.”

 So with many other exhortations he preached the gospel to the people.  But when Herod the tetrarch was reprimanded by him because of Herodias, his brother’s wife, and because of all the wicked things which Herod had done, Herod also added this to them all: he locked John up in prison.

A Prayer of Thanksgiving
1928 Book of Common Prayer link

Almighty God, Father of all mercies, we, thine unworthy servants
 do give thee most humble and hearty thanks for all thy goodness and lovingkindness to us, and to all men; [
We bless thee for our creation, preservation, and all the blessings of this life;
but above all, for thine inestimable love in the redemption of the world by our Lord Jesus Christ;
for the means of grace, and for the hope of glory.
And, we beseech thee, give us that due sense of all thy mercies that our hearts may be unfeignedly thankful;
and that we show forth thy praise, not only with our lips, but in our lives,
by giving up our selves to thy service, and by walking before thee in holiness and righteousness all our days;
through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom, with thee and the Holy Ghost,
be all honour and glory, world without end

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost;
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end.
Go in His peace and loving kindness

    Wade – I won’t say it was a good message but God spoke to me through your words and I was brought me, with thankfulness and tears, to Him with praise.
    Thank you!
