Confession and Forgiveness

In the name of the Father, and of the +Son, and of the Holy Spirit.


God of all mercy and consolation, come to the help of your people, turning us from our

sin to live for you alone. Give us the power of your Holy Spirit that we may confess our

sin, receive your forgiveness, and grow into the fullness of Jesus Christ, our Savior and



Let us confess our sin in the presence of God and of one another.

(Silence is kept for reflection.)

Most merciful God,

We confess that we are captive to sin and cannot free ourselves. We have

sinned against you in thought, word, and deed, by what we have done and by

what we have left undone. We have not loved you with our whole heart; we have

not loved our neighbors as ourselves. For the sake of your Son, Jesus Christ,

have mercy on us. Forgive us, renew us, and lead us, so that we may delight in

your will and walk in your ways, to the glory of your holy name. Amen.

God, who is rich in mercy, loved us even when we were dead in sin, and made us alive

together with Christ. By grace you have been saved. In the name of +Jesus Christ,

your sins are forgiven. Almighty God strengthen you with power through the Holy

Spirit, that Christ may live in your hearts through faith.

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

Hymn # 374 “Day of Arising” st. 1--3

1. Day of arising, Christ on the roadway,

unknown companion walks with his own.

When they invite him, as fades the first day,

and bread is broken, Christ is made known.

2. When we are walking, doubtful and dreading,

blinded by sadness, slowness of heart,

yet Christ walks with us, ever awaiting

our invitation: Stay, do not part.

3. Lo, I am with you, Jesus has spoken.

This is Christ’s promise, this is Christ’s sign;

when the church gathers, when bread is broken,

there Christ is with us in bread and wine.

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

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

The Prayers

L: . . .Lord, in your mercy,

C: Hear our prayer.


L: Let us pray---

C: God our provider, you have not fed us with bread alone, but with words of

grace and life. Bless us and these your gifts, which we have first received from

you, through Jesus Christ our 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: It is indeed right, our duty and our joy. . .we look with hope for his coming again.

C: Amen. Come Lord Jesus.

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


Hymn # 481 “Come to The Table of Mercy”

1. Come to the table of mercy, prepared with the wine and the bread.

All who are hungry and thirsty, come, and your soul will be fed.

Come at the Lord’s invitation; receive from his nail scarred hand.

Eat of the bread of salvation; drink of the blood of the Lamb.
