Welcome and Announcements

Confession and Forgiveness 

Blessed be the holy Trinity, one God, the Word made flesh, our life and our salvation. 


Trusting the goodness and lovingkindness of God our Savior, let us confess our sin. 

Silence is kept for reflection. 

God of life, you promise good news of great joy for all people, and call us to be messengers of your peace. We confess that too often we hoard our joy, our resources, and our security. We nurture conflict and build barriers. We neglect the needs of our neighbors and ignore the groaning of creation. Have mercy on us. Where we are self-centered, open our hearts. Where we are reluctant, give us courage. Where we are cynical, restore our trust. Renew us with your grace and give us again the hope of eternal life in you. Amen. 

Hear the good news: We are children of God and heirs of God’s promises through the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. In Jesus we are forgiven and redeemed. Sing with joy, for all the ends of the earth shall know the salva-tion of God. 


Hymn #807 “Come Thou Fount” 

L: The grace of our Lord, Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the commun-ion of the Holy Spirit, be with you all. 

C: And also with you. 


L: Let us pray: 

Thanks be to you, Lord Jesus Christ, most merciful redeemer, for the countless blessings and benefits you give. May we know you more clearly, love you more dearly, and follow you more nearly, day by day praising you, with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen. 


First Reading 1 Samuel 3: —10 Pg.423 

R: Word of God, Word of life. C: Thanks be to God. 

Psalm Psalm 139: 1—6, 13—18 Pg. 974 


PS 139:1 O LORD, you have searched me and you know me. 

PS 139:2 You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. 


PS 139:3 You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. 

PS 139:4 Before a word is on my tongue you know it completely, O LORD. 


PS 139:13 For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. 

PS 139:14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your 

works are wonderful, I know that full well. 




PS 139:17 How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! 

PS 139:18 Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand. 

When I awake, I am still with you. 


Second Reading: 1 Corinthians 6: 12-20 Page 1777

Hymn # 798 “Will You Come and Follow Me” 

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. 


L: . . .God of Grace 

C: Receive our prayers. 

Sharing of the Peace 

L: The peace of Christ be with you always 

C: And also with you! 

L: You may share the peace with one another.

(Please stand on the last verse as the offering is brought forward.) 

L: Let us pray, 

All: God our provider, by your merciful hand abundance springs up from the earth. Receive and bless these gifts of your own bounty. Let them be a sign of your steadfast love and faithfulness for all people, through Jesus Christ our Savior. Amen 

The Lord’s Prayer (sung) 

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 debts as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen. 


P: God bless you and keep you, Jesus grant you grace and truth, and the Spirit send peace upon your hearts, now and forever.
