Affirmation Of Faith- “The Heidelberg Catechism” (4.066 - Question #66)
Q. What are sacraments?
A. They were instituted by God so that by our use of them he might make us understand more clearly the promise of the gospel, and seal that promise. And this is God’s gospel promise: to grant us forgiveness of sins and eternal life by grace because of Christ’s one sacrifice accomplished on the cross.

Call To Worship (Psalm 105)
O give thanks to the Lord, call on His name, make known His deeds among the peoples.
Sing to Him, sing praises to Him; tell of all His wonderful works.
Glory in His holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.
Seek the Lord and His strength; seek His presence continually.
Remember the wonderful works He has done, His miracles, and the judgments He uttered,
O offspring of His servant Abraham, children of Jacob, His chosen ones.
Prayer Of Confession
O most holy God, we have sinned and fallen short of Thy glory. We have strayed like lost sheep wandering from Thy fold. Taking the abundant life inherited in Thee, we squander Thy grace in ungrateful living. Show us who we truly are. Open our eyes and hearts to becoming the person Thou has called us to be. Forgive us our debts, our gracious Father, and restore us as Thy children, through Thy Son, our Lord Jesus Christ.
(Silent prayer of personal confession.)
Call To Confession (Romans 6:6, 7)
The Apostle Paul wrote, “We know that our old self was crucified with Him so that the body of sin might be destroyed, and we might no longer be enslaved to sin.
For whoever has died is freed from sin.”
Freed from sin’s reign, let us confess our sins together.
Let us pray:
We have been baptized with Jesus in His death.
Baptized with Christ, we are not alone.
Remember baptized with Jesus in death and in life, we are with Jesus.
O Generous God, the bounty of blessings we have receive from Your hand overflows our lives. We are grateful. We have more than enough. We are thankful for the gifts that are far beyond what we deserve. Out of profound gratitude, we offer our gifts to You this day so that the good news of Your love known in You, our Triune God, may be shared with the world, in the name of You, our Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen.
Benediction and Postlude - “Ach Gott und Herr”
The Lord's Prayer
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 debts, as we forgive our debtors; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.
