Welcome and Announcements 

Ringing of the Bell

Confession and Forgiveness 

Blessed be the holy Trinity, one God, , creator of darkness and light, word of truth, wind sweeping over the waters. 


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

Silence is kept for reflection. 

God, our rock and refuge, 

we pour out our hearts before you. We have known you but have not always loved you. We have wounded one another and sinned against you. We have not always recognized the Holy Spirit dwelling in each of us. Remember your covenant. Renew your creation. Restore us, that we might proclaim your good news to all. Amen. 

The voice of the Lord is upon the waters. God has spoken: The time of grace is now. In Jesus, the reign of God has come near. By the authority of Jesus Christ, your sins are forgiven. You are God’s beloved. 


Hymn #508 “As Rain From the Clouds” 

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: 

Compassionate God, you gather the whole universe into your radiant presence and continually reveal your Son as our Savior. Bring wholeness to all that is broken and speak truth to us in our confusion, that all creation will see and know your Son, Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.

Hymn # 612 “Healer of Our Every Ill” 

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 prayer. 

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: Blessed are you, Holy One, for all good things come from you. In bread and cup you open heaven to us. Meet us at this table, that we receive what we seek and follow your Son, Jesus, in whose name we pray. 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 who names you, Christ who claims you, and the Holy Spirit who dwells in you, bless you and remain with you always.
