Welcome and Announcements 

Ringing of the Bell 

Thanksgiving for Baptism 

L: Blessed be the holy Trinity, one God, the wellspring of grace, our Easter and our joy. 


P: Look, here is water! 

Here is our water of life! Alleluia! 

L: Immersed in the promises of baptism, let us give thanks for what God 

has done for us. 

We give you thanks, O God, for in the beginning your voice thundered over the deep and water became the essence of life. 

P: Adam and Eve beheld Eden’s verdant rivers. 

The ark carried your creation through the flood into a new day. 

L: Miriam led the dancing as your people passed through the sea into 

freedom’s land. 

In a desert pool the Ethiopian official entered your boundless baptismal life. 

P: Look, here is water! 

Here is our water of life! Alleluia! 

L: At the river your beloved Son was baptized by John and anointed with the Holy Spirit. By the baptism of Jesus’ death and resurrection you opened the floodgates of your reconciling love, freeing us to live as Easter people. 

We rejoice with glad hearts, giving all honor and praise to you, through the risen Christ, our source of living water, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, now and forever. Amen. 

P: Look, here is water! 

Here is our water of life! Alleluia!

Psalm: Psalm 104: 24—34, 35b Pg. 941 


PS 104:24 How many are your works, O LORD! In wisdom you made them all; 

the earth is full of your creatures. 

PS 104:25 There is the sea, vast and spacious, teeming with creatures beyond 

number--living things both large and small. 


PS 104:27 These all look to you to give them their food at the proper time. 

PS 104:28 When you give it to them, they gather it up; when you open your 

hand, they are satisfied with good things. 


PS 104:29 When you hide your face, they are terrified; when you take away 

their breath, they die and return to the dust. 

PS 104:30 When you send your Spirit, they are created, and you renew the face of the earth. 


PS 104:31 May the glory of the LORD endure forever; may the LORD rejoice in his works-- 

PS 104:35 But may sinners vanish from the earth and the wicked be no more.

Hymn # 732 “Borning Cry” 

Affirmation of Baptism Jadon Robinson 

L: Friends, let us give thanks for the gift of baptism and for Jadon Robinson, our fellow member in the body of Christ, who today is making public affirmation of his baptism. 

L: Let us pray. 

Merciful God, we thank you for our brother, Jadon, whom you have made your own by water and the Word in baptism. You have called him to yourself, enlightened him with the gifts of your Spirit, and nourished him in the community of faith. Uphold your servant in the gifts and promises of baptism, and unite the hearts of all whom you have brought to new birth. We ask this in the name of Christ. Amen. 

Profession of Faith 

P: I ask you to profess your faith in Christ Jesus, reject sin, and confess the faith of the church. 

P: Do you renounce the devil and all the forces that defy God? 

Jadon: I renounce them. 

P: Do you renounce the powers of this world that rebel against God? 

Jadon: I renounce them. 

P: Do you renounce the ways of sin that draw you from God? 

Jadon: I renounce them. 

P: Do you believe in God the Father? 

I believe in God, the Father almighty, 

creator of heaven and earth. 

P: Do you believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God? 

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. 


P: Do you believe in God the Holy Spirit? 

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. 


P: You have made public profession of your faith. Do you intend to continue in the covenant God made with you in holy baptism: 

to live among God’s faithful people, 

to hear the word of God and share in the Lord’s supper, 

to proclaim the good news of God in Christ through word and deed, 

to serve all people, following the example of Jesus, 

and to strive for justice and peace in all the earth? 

Jadon: I do, and I ask God to help and guide me. 

P: People of God, do you promise to support our brother, Jadon, and pray for him in his life in Christ? 

C: We do, and we ask God to help and guide us. 


P: Let us pray 

We give you thanks, O God, that through water and the Holy Spirit you give us new birth, cleanse us from sin, and raise us to eternal life. Father in heaven, for Jesus’ sake, stir up in Jadon the gift of your Holy Spirit; confirm his faith, guide his life, empower him in his serving, give him patience in suffering, and bring him to everlasting life. Amen. 

L: Let us rejoice with our brother in Christ. 

We rejoice with you in the life of baptism. Together we will give thanks and praise to God and proclaim the good news to all the world.

Eucharistic Prayer 

Blessed are you, O God of the universe. Your mercy is everlasting and your faithfulness endures from age to age. 

Praise to you for creating the heavens and the earth. 

Praise to you for saving the earth from the waters of the flood. 

Praise to you for bringing the Israelites safely through the sea. 

Praise to you for leading your people through the wilderness to the land of milk and honey. 

Praise to you for the words and deeds of Jesus, your anointed one. 

Praise to you for the death and resurrection of Christ. 

Praise to you for your Spirit poured out on all nations. 

In the night in which he was betrayed, our Lord Jesus took bread, and gave thanks; broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying: 

Take and eat; this is my body, given for you. 

Do this for the remembrance of me. 

Again, after supper, he took the cup, gave thanks, 

and gave it for all to drink, saying: 

This cup is the new covenant in my blood, 

shed for you and for all people for the forgiveness of sin. 

Do this for the remembrance of me. 

With this bread and cup we remember our Lord’s Passover from death to life as we proclaim the mystery of faith: 

Christ has died. 

Christ is risen. 

Christ will come again. 

O God of resurrection and new life: Pour out your Holy Spirit on us and on these gifts of bread and wine 

Bless this feast. 

Grace our table with your presence. 

Come, Holy Spirit. 

Reveal yourself to us in the breaking of the bread. 

Raise us up as the body of Christ for the world. 

Breathe new life into us and send us forth, burning with justice, peace and love. 

With your holy ones of all times and places, 

With the earth and all its creatures, with sun and moon and stars, 

We praise you O God, blessed and holy Trinity, now and forever. 


P: Remember us in your kingdom and teach us to pray… 

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.
