Sermon Rev. Judi Miller 

Hymn # 367 “Now All the Vault of Heaven Resounds” 

P: With the whole church, let us confess our faith: 

We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen. 

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one Being with the Father; through him all things were made. For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven; was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary and became truly human. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pi-late; he suffered death and was buried. On the third day he rose again in accordance with the scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end. 


We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is wor-shiped and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets. We be-lieve in one holy catholic and apostolic church. We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen 

The Prayers 

P: .. . Lord, in your mercy, 

C: Hear our prayer. 

Sharing of the Peace 

P: The peace of Christ be with you always. 

C: And also with you! 

P: Let us share Christ’s peace with one another. 

The Offering 

Offering Hymn #366 “The Strife Is O’er, the Battle Done” 

The offering is collected as the hymn is sung. Please stand on the last verse as the offering is brought forward. 

P: Let us pray. 

All: Blessed are you, O God, maker of all things. Through your good-ness you have blessed us with these gifts: ourselves, our time, and our possessions. Use us, and what we have gathered, in feeding the world with your love, through the one who gave himself for us, Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen. 



P: The Lord be with you 

C: And also with you. 

P: Lift up your hearts. 

C: We lift them to the Lord. 

P: Let us give thanks to the Lord our God. 

C: It is right to give him thanks and praise. 

P: Blessed are you, Lord of heaven and earth. In mercy for our fallen world you gave your only Son, that all those who believe in him should not perish, but have eternal life. We give thanks to you for the salvation you have pre-pared for us through Jesus Christ. Send now your Holy Spirit into our hearts that we may receive our Lord with a living faith as he comes to us in his holy supper. 

C: Amen. Come, Lord Jesus. 

The Words of Institution 

The Lord’s Prayer 

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.
