Confession and Forgiveness

Blessed be the holy Trinity, + one God, the keeper of the covenant, the source of

steadfast love, our rock and our redeemer.


God hears us when we cry, and draws us close in Jesus Christ.

Let us return to the one who is full of compassion.

(Silence is kept for reflection.)

Fountain of living water,

Pour out your mercy over us. Our sin is heavy, and we long to be free. Rebuild

what we have ruined and mend what we have torn. Wash us in your cleansing

flood. Make us alive in the Spirit to follow in the way of Jesus, as healers and

restorers of the world you so love. Amen.

Beloved, God’s word never fails. The promise rests on grace: by the saving love of

Jesus Christ, the wisdom and power of God, your sins are + forgiven, and God

remembers them no more. Journey in the way of Jesus.


L: The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the communion of the Holy

Spirit be with you all.

C: And also with you.

L: Let us pray:

O God, with steadfast love you draw us to yourself, and in mercy you receive our

prayers. Strengthen us to bring forth the fruits of the Spirit, that through life and

death we may live in your Son, Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, who lives and

reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

born of the virgin Mary,

suffered under Pontius Pilate,

was crucified, died, and was buried;

He descended to the dead.

On the third day he rose again.

He ascended into heaven,

He is seated at the right hand of the Father,

And he will come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,

the holy catholic Church,

the communion of saints,

the forgiveness of sins,

the resurrection of the body,

and the life everlasting. Amen

Thanksgiving for the Word

Gracious God, who has named and claimed us, calling us your beloved children, you

know the secrets of our hearts. When we sin and stray from your paths, you astound

us with your saving grace. For this Word of life,

we give you thanks.

Loving Jesus, living Word, in you the Kingdom of God has come near; through you all

that was lost has been found. Help us to boldly follow wherever you may lead,

trusting your promise that we need not fear, for you are with us. For this Word of life,

we give you thanks.

Holy Spirit, the mystery in which we dwell, into our scarcity, your abundance flows.

Enliven all communities with your good news. Guide us to love and serve Jesus,

giving ourselves away for the sake of the world. For this Word of life,

we give you thanks.

All glory to you, holy God, now and forever.


Gathered into one by the Holy Spirit, let us pray as Jesus taught us:

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be

done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us

our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into

temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and

the glory, forever and ever. Amen



Hymn # 379 “Now the Green Blade Rises” sts. 1, 4

1. Now the green blade rises from the buried grain,

wheat -- that in dark earth many days has lain;

love lives again, that with the dead has been;

love is come again like wheat arising green.

3. Forth he came at Easter like the risen grain,

he -- that for three days in the grave had lain;

raised from the dead, my living Lord is seen;

love is come again like wheat arising green.

L: Go in peace. Serve the Lord.

C: Thanks be to God.
