Service for the Lord’s Day
*Assurance of Forgiveness
4th Sunday in Ordinary Time
*Passing of the Peace
(Passing the peace is more than a greeting. It is a ritual acting out of Jesus' call to love and
forgive others, as we have been loved. We offer God's peace to one another in the ancient
words of the church: "The peace of Christ be with you. And also with you.”)
Welcome (Please sign the friendship pad)

Give thanks to God with all your strength.
We come to live in God’s mercy and grace.
Let us worship God with all that we are.

Lord, Have Mercy Upon Us
This is Where Children Belong

*Facing Our Sin and Trusting God's Grace
Mighty God, surely awe for you is the beginning of wisdom. But we want to
trust in our own knowledge. The Scriptures tell us that you spoke to your
people through Moses and the prophets. But we doubt that you speak today.
We hear the stories of Jesus casting out demons. But we doubt that you hear
our prayers for healing. Lord Jesus, forgive our doubts, and teach us with
authority, that we might spread your fame!

William Greatorex

As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
Anthem (from Glory to God)

The Prayer of Great Thanksgiving
The Lord be with you.
And also with you.
Lift up your hearts.
We lift them to the Lord.

The Words of Institution

(It is the custom of our church to hold our bread and cup until all are served.)
Prayer After Communion
Loving God, you have given us a share in the one bread and the one cup and
made us one with Christ. Help us to bring your salvation and joy to all the
world. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
