6 The Collect of the Day The Celebrant bids the assigned collect, saying these or some other words of introduction The Lord be with you. People And also with you. Priest Let us pray. Father in heaven, who at the baptism of Jesus in the River Jordan proclaimed him your beloved Son and anointed him with the Holy Spirit: Grant that all who are baptized into his Name may keep the covenant they have made, and boldly confess him as Lord and Savior; who with you and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns, one God, in glory everlasting. Amen. First Reading Isaiah 42:1-9 A lector reads the first reading from Scripture, first saying A Reading from the Book of the Prophet Isaiah. Here is my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen, in whom my soul delights; I have put my spirit upon him; he will bring forth justice to the nations. He will not cry or lift up his voice, or make it heard in the street; a bruised reed he will not break, and a dimly burning wick he will not quench; he will faithfully bring forth justice. He will not grow faint or be crushed until he has established justice in the earth; and the coastlands wait for his teaching. Thus says God, the LORD, who created the heavens and stretched them out, who spread out the earth and what comes from it, who gives breath to the people upon it and spirit to those who walk in it: I am the LORD, I have called you in righteousness, I have taken you by the hand and kept you; I have given you as a covenant to the people, a light to the nations, to open the eyes that are blind, 6

7 to bring out the prisoners from the dungeon, from the prison those who sit in darkness. I am the LORD, that is my name; my glory I give to no other, nor my praise to idols. See, the former things have come to pass, and new things I now declare; before they spring forth, I tell you of them. At the conclusion of the reading, the lector says Hear what the Spirit is saying to God s people. People Thanks be to God. The Psalm Psalm 29 A reader leads the congregation in saying the Psalm at the 8 AM service. At the later service, the choir sings the antiphon once, then the congregation sings the antiphon with the choir. The Cantor sings the verses, with the congregation joining in singing the antiphon as indicated below. 1 Ascribe to the LORD, you gods, * ascribe to the LORD glory and strength. 2 Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his Name; * worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness. Antiphon 3 The voice of the LORD is upon the waters; the God of glory thunders; * the LORD is upon the mighty waters. 4 The voice of the LORD is a powerful voice; * the voice of the LORD is a voice of splendor. 5 The voice of the LORD breaks the cedar trees; * the LORD breaks the cedars of Lebanon; Antiphon 7

8 6 He makes Lebanon skip like a calf, * and Mount Hermon like a young wild ox. 7 The voice of the LORD splits the flames of fire; the voice of the LORD shakes the wilderness; * the LORD shakes the wilderness of Kadesh. Antiphon 8 The voice of the LORD makes the oak trees writhe * and strips the forests bare. 9 And in the temple of the LORD * all are crying, "Glory!" Antiphon 10 The LORD sits enthroned above the flood; * The LORD sits enthroned as King for evermore. 11 The LORD shall give strength to his people; * The LORD shall give his people the blessing of peace. Antiphon Second Reading Acts 10:34-43 A lector reads the second reading from Scripture, first saying A Reading from the Acts of the Apostles. Peter began to speak to them: I truly understand that God shows no partiality, but in every nation anyone who fears him and does what is right is acceptable to him. You know the message he sent to the people of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ -- he is Lord of all. That message spread throughout Judea, beginning in Galilee after the baptism that John announced: how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power; how he went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him. We are witnesses to all that he did both in Judea and in Jerusalem. They put him to death by hanging him on a tree; but God raised him on the third day and allowed him to appear, not to all the people but to us who were chosen by God as witnesses, and who ate and drank with him after he rose from the dead. He commanded us to preach to the people and to testify that he is the one ordained by God as judge of the living and the dead. All the prophets testify about him that everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name. 8

9 At the conclusion of the reading, the lector says Hear what the Spirit is saying to God s people. People Thanks be to God. Gospel Hymn (10:15 only) I Come, the great Redeemer cries Hymnal 116 Gospel Matthew 3:13-17 Deacon The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to Matthew. People Glory to you, Lord Christ. Jesus came from Galilee to John at the Jordan, to be baptized by him. John would have prevented him, saying, I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me? But Jesus answered him, Let it be so now; for it is proper for us in this way to fulfill all righteousness. Then he consented. And when Jesus had been baptized, just as he came up from the water, suddenly the heavens were opened to him and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. And a voice from heaven said, This is my Son, the Beloved, with whom I am well pleased. Deacon The Gospel of the Lord. People Praise to you, Lord Christ. Sermon The Rev. Jedediah D. Holdorph A period of silence will be observed for reflection after the sermon. 9

10 The Baptismal Covenant BCP, p. 292 As able, the People stand for the Baptismal Covenant. The Prayers of the People, Form II BCP, p. 385 The Exchange of the Peace BCP, p. 360 The celebrant invites all to share a sign of God s peace. Please greet those sitting beside and in the rows in front of and/or behind you. Birthday/Anniversary Blessings (along with other special prayers/announcements) Those with birthdays and/or anniversaries to celebrate are invited to come forward to receive a blessing. The People and Celebrant say the appropriate prayer together. For birthdays: For anniversaries: Watch over your children (child), O Lord, as their days increase; bless and guide them wherever they may be. Strengthen them when they stand; comfort them when discouraged or sorrowful; raise them up if they fall; and in their hearts may your peace which passes understanding abide all the days of their lives (life), through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. O gracious and everliving God, look mercifully on your servants. Grant them your blessing, and assist them with your grace, that with true fidelity and steadfast love they may honor and keep their promises and vows; through Jesus Christ our Savior, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen. If other members of the congregation wish, they may ask for additional prayers and blessings. A small treasure chest is placed on the chancel rail near the flowers. As members come forward for blessing, they may choose to place a thank offering in the chest. These gifts will be used to support outreach efforts for others in our community. 10

11 THE LITURGY OF THE TABLE Offertory Music Cantante Domino G.O. Pitoni Representatives of the congregation bring the people s offerings of bread and wine to the deacon. While the table is prepared, ushers will receive offerings as music is sung. The ushers present offerings of money or other gifts and then present these offerings to the celebrant. As these offerings are presented at the 10:15 service, the People sing the following, using the tune of Hymn 380. Be present at our table, Lord: Be here and everywhere adored; These creatures bless; and grant that we may feast in fellowship with thee. Amen. The Great Thanksgiving, Eucharistic Prayer B BCP, p. 367 The text of the prayer and responses is provided in the blue Book of Common Prayer, continuing on page 367. The setting for the Sanctus ( Holy, holy, holy Lord ) is sung as below. The service continues on page

12 The Breaking of the Bread and Sharing of Communion The Celebrant breaks the consecrated Bread and a period of silence is kept. Then may be sung or said Alleluia. Christ, our Passover is sacrificed for us. People Therefore, let us keep the feast. Alleluia. Facing the people, the Celebrant says the following or some similar words of invitation and may add The Gifts of God for the People of God. Take them in remembrance that Christ died for you, and feed on him in your hearts by faith, with thanksgiving. All who seek God and a deeper life in Christ are welcome to receive Holy Eucharist. The ushers will direct parishioners forward at the appropriate time. If you would prefer a blessing, simply cross your arms on your chest. Receiving either the bread or the wine by itself constitutes full reception of the Holy Sacrament. Gluten-free wafers are available. Please notify the clergy at the altar rail if this is needed. Communion Music Come to the River Here at this Table The choir and/or instrumentalists typically share music while the people receive communion. Prayer Station A prayer station is available while communion is being shared. If you would appreciate personal prayer, please step to the station beside the steps and a member of the Prayer Ministry Team will offer prayerful support for healing (and for sharing of any other concerns or thanksgivings). Prayer after Communion BCP, p. 366 The Celebrant and People say a prayer in unison, the Celebrant first saying, Let us pray. Commissioning of Eucharistic Visitor(s) all stand If communion is being taken out, the Celebrant commissions the Minister(s), saying In the name of this congregation, I send you forth bearing these holy gifts (for N.N.), that those to whom you go may share with us in the communion of Christ s body and blood. People We who are many are one body, because we share one bread, one cup. 12

13 The Blessing of God s People The Celebrant offers a blessing specific to this day May Almighty God, who led the Wise Men by the shining of a star to find the Christ, the Light from Light, lead you also, in your pilgrimage, to find the Lord. People Amen. Priest People Amen. Priest People Amen. Priest People Amen. May God, who sent the Holy Spirit to rest upon the Onlybegotten at his baptism in the Jordan River, pour out that Spirit on you who have come to the waters of new birth. May God, by the power that turned water into wine at the wedding feast at Cana, transform your lives and make glad your hearts. And the blessing of God Almighty, Creator, Redeemer, and Giver of life, be with you always. Recessional Hymn Christ when for us you were baptized! Hymnal 121 The Dismissal The Deacon, or Celebrant, dismisses the people with these or similar words Let us go forth in the name of Christ. (Alleluia. Alleluia.) People Thanks be to God. (Alleluia. Alleluia.) Postlude 13

38 The Collect of the Day The Celebrant bids the assigned collect, saying these or some other words of introduction The Lord be with you. People And also with you. Priest Let us pray. Father in heaven, who at the baptism of Jesus in the River Jordan proclaimed him your beloved Son and anointed him with the Holy Spirit: Grant that all who are baptized into his Name may keep the covenant they have made, and boldly confess him as Lord and Savior; who with you and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns, one God, in glory everlasting. Amen. First Reading Isaiah 42:1-9 A lector reads the first reading from Scripture, first saying A Reading from the Book of the Prophet Isaiah. Here is my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen, in whom my soul delights; I have put my spirit upon him; he will bring forth justice to the nations. He will not cry or lift up his voice, or make it heard in the street; a bruised reed he will not break, and a dimly burning wick he will not quench; he will faithfully bring forth justice. He will not grow faint or be crushed until he has established justice in the earth; and the coastlands wait for his teaching. Thus says God, the LORD, who created the heavens and stretched them out, who spread out the earth and what comes from it, who gives breath to the people upon it and spirit to those who walk in it: I am the LORD, I have called you in righteousness, I have taken you by the hand and kept you; I have given you as a covenant to the people, a light to the nations, to open the eyes that are blind, 6

39 to bring out the prisoners from the dungeon, from the prison those who sit in darkness. I am the LORD, that is my name; my glory I give to no other, nor my praise to idols. See, the former things have come to pass, and new things I now declare; before they spring forth, I tell you of them. At the conclusion of the reading, the lector says Hear what the Spirit is saying to God s people. People Thanks be to God. The Psalm Psalm 29 A reader leads the congregation in saying the Psalm at the 8 AM service. At the later service, the choir sings the antiphon once, then the congregation sings the antiphon with the choir. The Cantor sings the verses, with the congregation joining in singing the antiphon as indicated below. 1 Ascribe to the LORD, you gods, * ascribe to the LORD glory and strength. 2 Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his Name; * worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness. Antiphon 3 The voice of the LORD is upon the waters; the God of glory thunders; * the LORD is upon the mighty waters. 4 The voice of the LORD is a powerful voice; * the voice of the LORD is a voice of splendor. 5 The voice of the LORD breaks the cedar trees; * the LORD breaks the cedars of Lebanon; Antiphon 7

40 6 He makes Lebanon skip like a calf, * and Mount Hermon like a young wild ox. 7 The voice of the LORD splits the flames of fire; the voice of the LORD shakes the wilderness; * the LORD shakes the wilderness of Kadesh. Antiphon 8 The voice of the LORD makes the oak trees writhe * and strips the forests bare. 9 And in the temple of the LORD * all are crying, "Glory!" Antiphon 10 The LORD sits enthroned above the flood; * The LORD sits enthroned as King for evermore. 11 The LORD shall give strength to his people; * The LORD shall give his people the blessing of peace. Antiphon Second Reading Acts 10:34-43 A lector reads the second reading from Scripture, first saying A Reading from the Acts of the Apostles. Peter began to speak to them: I truly understand that God shows no partiality, but in every nation anyone who fears him and does what is right is acceptable to him. You know the message he sent to the people of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ -- he is Lord of all. That message spread throughout Judea, beginning in Galilee after the baptism that John announced: how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power; how he went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him. We are witnesses to all that he did both in Judea and in Jerusalem. They put him to death by hanging him on a tree; but God raised him on the third day and allowed him to appear, not to all the people but to us who were chosen by God as witnesses, and who ate and drank with him after he rose from the dead. He commanded us to preach to the people and to testify that he is the one ordained by God as judge of the living and the dead. All the prophets testify about him that everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name. 8

41 At the conclusion of the reading, the lector says Hear what the Spirit is saying to God s people. People Thanks be to God. Gospel Hymn (10:15 only) I Come, the great Redeemer cries Hymnal 116 Gospel Matthew 3:13-17 Deacon The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to Matthew. People Glory to you, Lord Christ. Jesus came from Galilee to John at the Jordan, to be baptized by him. John would have prevented him, saying, I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me? But Jesus answered him, Let it be so now; for it is proper for us in this way to fulfill all righteousness. Then he consented. And when Jesus had been baptized, just as he came up from the water, suddenly the heavens were opened to him and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. And a voice from heaven said, This is my Son, the Beloved, with whom I am well pleased. Deacon The Gospel of the Lord. People Praise to you, Lord Christ. Sermon The Rev. Jedediah D. Holdorph A period of silence will be observed for reflection after the sermon. 9

42 The Baptismal Covenant BCP, p. 292 As able, the People stand for the Baptismal Covenant. The Prayers of the People, Form II BCP, p. 385 The Exchange of the Peace BCP, p. 360 The celebrant invites all to share a sign of God s peace. Please greet those sitting beside and in the rows in front of and/or behind you. Birthday/Anniversary Blessings (along with other special prayers/announcements) Those with birthdays and/or anniversaries to celebrate are invited to come forward to receive a blessing. The People and Celebrant say the appropriate prayer together. For birthdays: For anniversaries: Watch over your children (child), O Lord, as their days increase; bless and guide them wherever they may be. Strengthen them when they stand; comfort them when discouraged or sorrowful; raise them up if they fall; and in their hearts may your peace which passes understanding abide all the days of their lives (life), through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. O gracious and everliving God, look mercifully on your servants. Grant them your blessing, and assist them with your grace, that with true fidelity and steadfast love they may honor and keep their promises and vows; through Jesus Christ our Savior, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
