Here is the order of service and sermon information for this Sunday at Emmaus. We will be in Habakkuk chapter 3. Take some time to prayerfully read the chapter over as you prepare to come.
ORDER OF SERVICE
Welcome and Announcements
Call to Worship
“And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”” (Acts 4:12, ESV)
Confession of Faith: The Nicene Creed
We believe in one God, the Father, Ruler of all, maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible.
And we believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten from the Father before all time; Light, from Light, true God from true God; begotten, not made; of the same essence as the Father, through Whom all things were made; Who for us and for our salvation came down from heaven and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary, and was made a man. He was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate, and suffered and was buried, and rose on the third day, according to the Scriptures. He ascended to heaven, and sits at the right hand of the Father. He shall come again with glory to judge the living and the dead; His kingdom shall have no end.
And we believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and giver of life, Who proceeds from the Father and the Son, Who is worshiped and glorified together with the Father and Son, and Who spoke through the Prophets.
And we believe that there is one holy, universal and apostolic church. We confess one baptism for the remission of sins, and we look for the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen.

Confession of Sin
“For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God you may receive what is promised. For, “Yet a little while, and the coming one will come and will not delay; but my righteous one shall live by faith, and if he shrinks back, my soul has no pleasure in him.” But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who have faith and preserve their souls.” (Hebrews 10:36–39, ESV)
Assurance of Pardon
“He committed no sin, neither was deceit found in his mouth. When he was reviled, he did not revile in return; when he suffered, he did not threaten, but continued entrusting himself to him who judges justly. He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed. For you were straying like sheep, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.” (1 Peter 2:22–25, ESV)
Congregational Song #4: All I Have is Christ
Congregational Song #5: My Jesus I Love Thee
Worship through Giving
“Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will be Done” (Habakkuk 3:1-16)
Congregational Song #6: Ten Thousand times Ten Thousand
“Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.” (Matthew 6:9–13)
Title: “Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will be Done”
Text: Habakkuk 3:1-16
Big Idea: Living by faith means trusting God—even when life seems to not make sense.
Outline: How does Habakkuk’s prayer demonstrate his faith?
(1) He asks for help understanding and embracing God’s will.
(2) He rehearses God’s past judgments in anticipation of his promised future action.
(3) He acknowledges that he is weak and deeply affected by what is coming.
