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.

O God, you give us your Son as the vine apart from whom we cannot live.

Nourish our life in his resurrection, that we may bear the fruit of love and know

the fullness of your joy, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, who lives

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

Hymn # 377 “Alleluia! Jesus is Risen!” st. 1--3

1. Alleluia! Jesus is risen! Trumpets resounding in glorious light!

Splendor, the Lamb, heaven forever! Oh, what a miracle God has in sight!

Refrain: Jesus is risen and we shall arise. Give God the glory! Alleluia!

2. Walking the way, Christ in the center telling the story to open our eyes;

breaking our bread, giving us glory: Jesus our blessing, our constant

surprise. (Refrain)

3. Jesus the vine, we are the branches; life in the Spirit the fruit of the tree;

heaven to earth, Christ to the people, gift of the future now flowing to 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
