Reformation Day 

10:00 AM Service October 30, 2022 

GATHERING 

Prelude 

Welcome and Announcements 

Ringing of the Bell 

(Please Stand) 

Confession and Forgiveness 

P: We begin our worship as we live: in the name of the Father, and of the + Son, and of the Holy Spirit. 

P: In the presence of God, let us confess our sin as a church. 

(a time for silence, meditation, and self-examination.) 

P: Holy God, 

C: We are a people unworthy of your name. Our common life has often not reflected your mercy or given witness to your grace. By our divisive-ness and quarrelling, we have scorned the unity for which our Lord prayed. By seeking our own way, we have not shared in love the gifts we have been given for building up the Body of Christ. We as a church have turned away from the needs of the world Christ died to save. Have mercy on us. Renew our common life. Center us again in the cross of Christ, that we may yet proclaim your deliverance and live to your glory. Amen. 

P: Just as God brought Noah and his family safe through the flood, just as God brought the Hebrew people through the sea, out of slavery and into the promised land, so by water and the Holy Spirit God has raised you up and made of you a chosen people, a holy nation, and a royal priesthood. Christ loved the church, and gave himself up for us, + to cleanse us from sin and make us holy. Filled with the Spirit, we have power to proclaim the mighty acts of the one who called us out of darkness and into his marvelous light. 

C: Amen. 

Hymn # 504 “A Mighty Fortress is Our God 

 

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: 

C: Almighty God, gracious Lord, we thank you that your Holy Spirit renews the church in every age. Pour out your Holy Spirit on your faithful people. Keep them steadfast in your word, protect and comfort them in times of trail, defend them against all enemies of the gospel, and bestow on the church your saving peace, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

Hymn # 652 “Built on a Rock” 

 

L: Together with the whole church, we confess our faith: 

All: I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth. 

I believe in Jesus Christ, 

God’s only Son, our Lord, 

Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, 

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
