Confession and Forgiveness

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

C: Amen.

L: 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.

C: Amen.

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

C: 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 one 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.

L: In the mercy of almighty God, Jesus Christ was given to die for us, and for his

sake God forgives us all our sins. I declare to you the entire forgiveness of all

your sins, in the name of the Father, and of the +Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

C: 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.

Glory to God in the highest...

L: Let us pray:

All: O God of peace, you brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus

Christ, the great shepherd of the sheep. By the blood of your eternal

covenant, make us complete in everything good that we may do your will,

and work among us all that is well-pleasing in your sight, through Jesus

Christ, our Savior and Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy

Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

Hymn # 502 “The King of Love My Shepherd Is”

L: With the whole church, let us confess our faith:

We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and

earth, of all that is, seen and unseen.

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten

of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God,

begotten, not made, of one Being with the Father; through him all things

were made. For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven; was

incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary and became truly human.

For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and

was buried. On the third day he rose again in accordance with the scriptures;

he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father.

He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his

kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from

the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is worshiped and

glorified, who has spoken through the prophets. We believe in one holy

catholic and apostolic church. We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness

of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of

the world to come. Amen


L: . . .Lord, in your mercy,

C: Hear our prayer.

Sharing of the Peace

L: The peace of Christ be with you always.

C: And also with you!

L: Let us share Christ’s peace with one another.


Offering Hymn #764 “Have No Fear, Little Flock”

Please stand as the last verse is sung and the offering is brought forward.

Offering Prayer

Let us pray.

Almighty and eternal God, so draw our hearts to you, so guide our minds,

so fill our imaginations, so control our wills, that we may be wholly yours,

utterly dedicated to you; and then use us, we pray, as you will, but always

to your glory and the welfare of your people, through our Lord and Savior,

Jesus Christ. 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.
