Pastoral Prayer and Time of Silence 

Affirmation of Faith - The Nicene Creed

 

We believe in one God,
the Father, the Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all that is, seen and unseen.

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
the only Son of God,
eternally begotten of the Father,
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made,
of one Being with the Father;
through him all things were made.
For us and for our salvation
     he came down from heaven,
     was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary
     and became truly human.
     For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;
     he suffered death and was buried.
     On the third day he rose again
     in accordance with the Scriptures;
     he ascended into heaven
     and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
     He will come again in glory
     to judge the living and the dead,
     and his kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son,
who with the Father and the Son
     is worshiped and glorified,
who has spoken through the prophets.
We believe in one holy catholic* and apostolic church.
We acknowledge one baptism
     for the forgiveness of sins.
We look for the resurrection of the dead,
     and the life of the world to come. Amen.

Response Hymn # 157 (UMH)

Jesus Shall Reign (v. 1)

 

Invitation to the Table

 

Prayer of Confession and Assurance of Pardon

Pastor: Too often, Lord God, we are hesitant in our proclamation; seeking safe and suitable opportunities to speak of our faith.

 

All: Too often, Lord God, we are half-hearted in our service; reluctant to stand out from the crowd or to attract criticism.

 

Pastor: Too often, Lord God, we live as if dependent wholly on our own re- sources; relying on our perceived skills and modest insights.

 

All: Too often, Lord God, we look to the clouds for our inspiration, in the vain hope of finding you there. Forgive the poverty of our efforts and the frailty of our faith and open wide our hearts and minds to the immanent presence of our Risen, Living and Ascended Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.

 

Pastor: Hear the good news: In the name of the Risen, Living, and Ascended Lord, we are forgiven. Thanks be to God. Amen.
