Confession and Forgiveness

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


Let us with confidence draw near to God in confession, that we may

receive mercy and find grace in time of need.

(Silence is kept for reflection)

Have mercy on us, O God,

according to your lovingkindness. In your great mercy, wash away our iniquity and cleanse us from our sin. Create in us clean hearts, O God, and renew a right spirit within us. Do not remove us from your presence; do not take your Spirit away. Restore to us the joy of your salvation, and sustain us with your Spirit. Amen.

Almighty God have mercy on you, forgive you all your sins through our + Lord Jesus Christ, strengthen you in all goodness, and by the power of the Holy Spirit keep you in eternal life.


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.


L: Let us pray:

C: Gracious God, throughout the ages you transform, sickness into health and death into life. Open us to the power of your presence, and make us a people ready to proclaim your promises to the whole world, through Jesus Christ, our healer and Lord. Amen

Psalm: Psalm 146 Pg. 980

 Praise the LORD. Praise the LORD, O my soul.

 I will praise the LORD all my life; I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.

 Do not put your trust in princes, in mortal men, who cannot save.

P Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the LORD his God,

 the Maker of heaven and earth, the sea, and everything in them--the LORD, who remains faithful forever.

 He upholds the cause of the oppressed and gives food to the  hungry. The LORD sets prisoners free,

the LORD gives sight to the blind, the LORD lifts up those who are bowed down, the LORD loves the righteous.

 The LORD watches over the alien and sustains the fatherless and the widow, but he frustrates the ways of the wicked. Praise the LORD.

Hymn # 726 Light Dawns on a Weary World”

1. Light dawns on a weary world when eyes begin to see all people’s dignity. Light dawns on a weary world: the promised day of justice comes.

Refrain: The trees shall clap their hands; the dry lands, gush with springs;

the hills and mountains shall break forth with singing!

We shall go out in joy, and be led forth in peace,

as all the world in wonder echoes shalom.

2. Love grows in a weary world when hungry hearts find bread and children’s dreams are fed. Love grows in a weary world: the promised feast of plenty comes. (Refrain)

3. Hope blooms in a weary world when creatures, once forlorn, find wilderness reborn. Hope blooms in a weary world: the promised green of Eden comes. (Refrain)

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

All: 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

C: Hear our prayer.

C: Gracious God, all goodness flows from you. You bless us and you call us to be a blessing to a world in need. Accept these offerings as a sign of our whole lives returned to 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.


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

Invitation to Communion



Hymn # 886 “Oh, for a Thousand Tongues to Sing ”

1. Oh, for a thousand tongues to sing my great Redeemer’s praise, the glories of my God and king, the triumphs of his grace!

2. My gracious Master and my God, assist me to proclaim, to spread through all the earth abroad the honors of your name.

2. The name of Jesus charms our fears and bids our sorrows cease, sings music in the sinner’s ears, brings life and health and peace.

3. He speaks, and listening to his voice, new life the dead receive; the mournful, broken hearts rejoice, the humble poor believe.

4. Look unto him, your Savior own, O fallen human race! Look and be saved through faith alone, be justified by grace!

5. To God all glory, praise, and love be now and ever given by saints below and saints above, the church in earth and heaven.

L: Go in peace. Serve the Lord.

C: Thanks be to God.
