Whether you have been here many times or have never been to Church before, you can anticipate an encouraging, enlightening, and uplifting experience. No Strings Attached: If you are a guest with us today, please don t feel you need to give any money in the offering. This service is our gift to you. We love to have children experience and participate in worship! A children s message is offered, and children are welcomed to join the Pastor at the altar steps during this time of the service.

Young children will receive a blessing. Please come forward by the center aisle at the direction of the usher, pick up a communion cup, and fill up the altar rail from back to front.

Happy are those who have become the righteousness of God in the merits of Christ Jesus. Happy are those for whom the forgiveness of God has rolled away... the disgrace of former times. Happy is the father at the return of his prodigal son. Happy are we that our sins are forgiven for Jesus sake. Rejoice! ANNOUNCEMENTS ORGAN PRELUDE: Sunday: Be Thou But Near J.S.Bach Confession and Forgiveness All may make the sign of the cross, the sign marked at baptism, as the presiding minister begins.

P Let us come home to God, confessing our sin. Silence is kept for reflection. Merciful Father, C we have sinned against heaven and before you. We do not fully live as your sons and daughters.

We are reconciled to God through Christ; for his sake, God does not count our trespasses against us. Once dead in sin, we are now alive to God. Once lost, we now are found.

Bless us and these your gifts, which we receive from your bounty, through Jesus Christ our Lord. C Amen. GREAT THANKSGIVING PSALM: Psalm 32 1 Happy are they whose transgressions are forgiven, and whose sin is put away! 2 Happy are they to whom the Lord imputes no guilt, and in whose spirit there is no guile! 3 While I held my tongue, my bones withered away, because of my groaning all day long. 4 For your hand was heavy upon me day and night; my moisture was dried up as in the heat of summer. 5 Then I acknowledged my sin to you, and did not conceal my guilt. I said, I will confess my transgressions to the Lord. Then you forgave me the guilt of my sin. 6 Therefore all the faithful will make their prayers to you in time of trouble; when the great waters overflow, they shall not reach them. 7 You are my hiding-place; you preserve me from trouble; you surround me with shouts of deliverance. 8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way that you should go; I will guide you with my eye. 9 Do not be like horse or mule, which have no understanding; who must be fitted with bit and bridle, or else they will not stay near you. 10 Great are the tribulations of the wicked; but mercy embraces those who trust in the Lord. 11 Be glad, you righteous, and rejoice in the Lord; shout for joy, all who are true of heart. SECOND READING: 2 Corinthians 5:16-21 The Word of the Lord. C Thanks Be To God! (Please stand for the Gospel) Holy Communion 5

6 Sunday Only: The Holy Gospel according to Luke, the Fifteenth Chapter: C Glory to you, O Lord. GOSPEL: Luke 15:1-3, 11b-32 This is the Gospel of our Lord. C Praise to you, O Christ. CHILDREN S SERMON SERMON (Sunday Only) HYMN OF THE DAY: Holy Communion Communion 6 6 Holy Communion 6 (Please be seated) (Silence for reflection and prayer) (Please stand after the Sermon.) #779 - Amazing Grace APOSTLES CREED With the whole church, let us confess our faith. I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth. I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord. He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit And born of the virgin Mary, He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; He descended into hell.* On the third day he rose again; He ascended into heaven, He is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen. PRAYERS OF INTERCESSION Hearing the call to return to the Lord, let us join the whole people of God in prayer for all who cry out in pain and in hope. A brief silence. For campus ministries, we give you thanks, eternal Lord. Equip the students, staff, and ministers to share your steadfast love with their university community and all whom they meet. For polluted oceans and rivers, we seek your healing, creative Lord. Restore the homes of manatees and sea turtles. Teach us to love the earth as you do. For conflicts between political parties, we ask for your discernment and wisdom, merciful Lord. Enable citizens and elected officials to listen to one another and to work together for your justice. For the unemployed, the working poor, and all who struggle to make ends meet, we pray for your provision, gracious Lord. Break down systems that shame, and hold all in the truth that they are your children. We also pray especially for those on our prayer list, and those whom we name before you now, either aloud or in the silence of our hearts. (pause) Holy Communion 7
