GATHERING

Prelude

Welcome and Announcements

Ringing of the Bell

(Please Stand)

Confession and Forgiveness

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

Amen.

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

Lord.

Amen

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.

Amen.

L: Alleluia! Christ is risen!

C: He is risen, indeed! Alleluia!

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.

1

L: Let us pray:

O Lord Christ, good shepherd of the sheep, you seek the lost and guide us into

your fold. Feed us, and we shall be satisfied; heal us and we shall be whole.

Make us one with you, for you live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and forever. Amen.

Sermon

(Please Stand)

Hymn # 619 “I Know That My Redeemer Lives!” st. 1,5

1. I know that my Redeemer lives! What comfort this sweet sentence gives!

He lives, he lives, who once was dead; he lives, my ever living head!

2. He lives to bless me with his love; he lives to plead for me above;

he lives my hungry soul to feed; he lives to help in time of need.

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.

Offering

Thanksgiving for the Word

Praise to you, O God, for your Word of life: creating a wondrous universe, proclaiming

freedom from captivity, becoming the song of your people.

Your Word is made flesh among us: with Mary in the garden, you call us by name. With

Thomas beholding your wounds, you call us to believe. With sheep of others folds, we

are gathered by your voice. Your Word names our death and our life: a seed that falls

into the earth and dies, rain and snow that come down from heaven to water the earth,

a vine in which we abide. Through your Word, you appoint us to bear fruit, fruit that will

last.

By your living Word, we are witnesses of these things. Breathe into us your Holy Spirit.

Open our minds to understand the scriptures. Give us wisdom to declare what we have

heard, what we have seen with our eyes, what we have looked at and touched with our

hands concerning the word of life. Fill us with strength to love, not in word or speech

alone, but in truth and action.

With every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth, we join in the hymn of

all creation, giving thanks to you and praise, now and forever.

Amen.

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

SENDING

Blessing

Hymn # 782 “My Shepherd, You Supply My Need” st. 3

1. My Shepherd, you supply my need; most holy is your name.

In pastures fresh you make me feed, beside the living stream.

You bring my wandering spirit back when I forsake your ways,

and lead me, for your mercy’s sake, in paths of truth and grace.

2. When I walk through the shades of death, your presence is my stay;

one word of your supporting breath drives all my fears away.

Your hand, in sight of all my foes, does still my table spread;

my cup with blessings overflows, your oil anoints my head.

3. The sure provisions of my God attend me all the days;

oh, my your house be my abode and all my work be praise.

Here would I find a settled rest, while others go and come;

no more a stranger or a guest, but like a child at home.

L: Alleluia! Christ is risen!

C: He is risen, indeed! Alleluia!

L: Go in peace. Serve the Lord.

C: Thanks be to God.
