WELCOME & ANNOUNCEMENTS

INVOCATION

P:  In the name of the Father…

P:  In the name of the Son…

C:   Who has redeemed us, lost and condemned creatures … not with silver or gold but       with His precious blood and innocent suffering and death.

P:  In the name of the Holy Spirit…

C:   Who has called us by the Gospel, enlightened us with His gifts, keeps us holy and in    one true faith.  Amen.

CONFESSION and ABSOLUTION

P:   Dear friends, let us be honest with God, with each other, and with ourselves … and confess our sins in order that we might receive the forgiveness of God and experience the full joy of communion with Jesus Christ.

All:  Lord, we have sinned by what we have thought, said, and done.  We continue to pull away from You even though You love us with an everlasting love.  As we come before You in our worship, we recognize our failures and weaknesses.  We come before You in need of your forgiveness and your power to overcome sin.  Amen.

Silent Reflection

P:   The Lord is merciful, slow to anger, and full of unfailing love.  He will never abandon us.  He has carved our names on the palm of His hand.  As we have confessed our sins to God our Father, He has heard and removed them.  That is His promise of love and forgiveness to us.

AFFIRMATION OF FAITH

P:  The Scriptures tell us, “He who stands firm to the end will be saved.”  Upon what faith shall we stand?  Upon what hope can we keep on trusting?

All: The One true faith!  For we believe in God the Father Almighty, who created all things. We believe in Jesus Christ His Son, who died for our sins and rose from the grave giving us the promise of eternal life. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of life!  He calls us, gathers us from the ends of the earth, works in us this one true faith, that we may live as Kingdom people and share our faith with others.  We stand firm on this faith, confident in our belief, for our God is faithful.  Amen and Amen.
