Welcome and Announcements

Confession and Forgiveness 

Blessed be the holy Trinity, one God, who writes the law on our hearts, who draws all people together through Jesus. 


Held in God’s mercy, let us confess our sin in the presence of God and of one another. 

Silence is kept for reflection. 

Holy God, we confess that we are caught in snares of sin and cannot break free. We hoard resources while our neighbors 

are hungry and cold. We speak in ways that silence others. We are silent when we should speak up. We keep score in our hearts. We let hurts grow into hatred. For all these things and for sins only you know, forgive us, Lord. Amen. 

Here is a flood of grace: Out of love for the whole world, God draws near to us, breaks every snare of sin, washes away our wrongs, and restores the promise of life through Jesus Christ. 


Hymn #806 “O God, My Faithful God” 

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 

All: O God, by the passion of your blessed Son you made an instrument of shameful death to be for us the means of life. Grant us so to glory in the cross of Christ that we may gladly suffer shame and loss for the sake of your Son, Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen. 


First Reading: Genesis 17: 1—7, 15—16 Pg. 22 

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

Psalm Psalm 22: 23—31 Pg. 861 


PS 22:23 You who fear the LORD, praise him! All you descendants of Jacob, honor him! Revere him, all you descendants of Israel! 

PS 22:24 For he has not despised or disdained the suffering of the afflicted one; he has not hidden his face from him but has listened to his cry for help. 

PS 22:25 From you comes the theme of my praise in the great assembly; 

before those who fear you will I fulfill my vows. 


PS 22:26 The poor will eat and be satisfied; they who seek the LORD will praise him--may your hearts live forever! 

PS 22:27 All the ends of the earth will remember and turn to the LORD, and 

all the families of the nations will bow down before him, 

PS 22:28 for dominion belongs to the LORD and he rules over the nations. 


PS 22:29 All the rich of the earth will feast and worship; all who go down to the dust will kneel before him--those who cannot keep themselves alive. 

PS 22:30 Posterity will serve him; future generations will be told about the Lord. 

PS 22:31 They will proclaim his righteousness to a people yet unborn—for he has done it. 


Second Reading: Romans 4: 13—25 Pg. 1752 

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

Hymn # 812 “Faith of Our Fathers ” 

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. 

The Prayers 

L: . . . Hear us, O God, C: Your mercy is great. 

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. 



Offering Hymn #689 “Praise and Thanksgiving” Vs. 1—3 

(As the last verse is sung, please stand as the offering is brought forward.) 


L: Let us pray. 

All: Jesus, you are the bread of life and the host of this meal. Bless these gifts that we have gathered that all people may know your goodness. Feed us not only with this holy food but with hunger for justice and peace. We pray this in your name. 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: Beloved, we are God’s own people, holy, washed, renewed. God bless you and keep you, shower you with mercy, fill you with courage, and give you peace. 

Hymn # 597 “My Hope Is Built on Nothing Less” 


L: Go in peace. Share your bread. 

Thanks be to God.
