We Proclaim Jesus Christ, Crucified and Risen for All Mankind! 


CONFESSION AND ABSOLUTION

 

Pastor:        “All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned­–every one–to his own    way; and the Lord has laid on [our Savior Jesus] the iniquity of us all.” [Isaiah 53:6] Let us then confess our sins to God our Father.

 

People:       Lord, we truly have wandered away from our Shepherd like lost sheep. We have sinned in what we have done and in what we have left undone. We have not loved You with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. Yet You sent Your Son Jesus to be our Savior. Since Jesus is also God Himself in human flesh and blood, He has become our true Shepherd, going out into the wilderness to find us when we were lost and who then brings us home rejoicing. Forgive our wandering sins, Dear Lord, and let us rejoice every day over the Savior who has found us when we were lost.

 

Pastor:         In the mercy of Almighty God, Jesus Christ was given to die for us, and for His sake God forgives us all our sins. To those who believe in Jesus Christ He gives the power to become children of God and bestows on them the Holy Spirit. May the Lord, who has begun this good work in us, bring it to completion in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.

 

People:        Amen.

Pastor:        For the peace that passes all understanding, coming to us from the Good Shepherd, who lays down His life for the sheep, let us pray to the Lord.

People:        Lord, have mercy.


Pastor:          Help, save, pity, and defend us, O God, by Your grace.

People:        Amen.

 

APOSTLES’ CREED

 

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Maker of Heaven and Earth.

                                     

And in Jesus Christ His 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 into hell. The third day he rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty. From thence he will come to judge the living and the dead.

 

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Christian church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and the life everlasting. Amen.

 

LORD’S PRAYER (Matthew 6:9–13)

 

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.

 

THE PEACE OF THE LORD

 

Pastor:          The peace of the Lord be with you always.

People:        Amen.

 

LET US SHARE THE PEACE WHICH OUR SHEPHERD WON FOR US WITH EACH OTHER.

 

BENEDICAMUS and BENEDICTION

 

Pastor:          Let us bless the Lord.

People:        Thanks be to God.

 

Pastor:          The Lord bless you and keep you. The Lord make His face shine on you and be gracious to you. The Lord look upon you with favor and + give you peace. (Numbers 6:24–26)

People:        Amen.
