WELCOME AND ANNOUNCEMENTS
 

CONFESSION AND FORGIVENESS

We gather in the name of the Father, + Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen.

Let us confess our sin in the presence of God and of one another.

Silence for reflection and meditation.

Gracious God, have mercy on us. We confess that we have turned from you and given ourselves into the power of sin. We are truly sorry and humbly repent. In your compassion forgive us our sins, known and unknown, things we have done and things we have failed to do. Turn us again to you, and uphold us by your Spirit, so that we may live and serve you in newness of life through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.

God, who is rich in mercy, loved us even when we were dead in sin, and made us alive together with Christ. By grace you have been saved. In the name of + Jesus Christ, your sins are forgiven. Almighty God strengthen you with power through the Holy Spirit, that Christ may live in your hearts through faith. Amen.

with your might creation bless.

Shine upon your church today,

showing all your gentle way.

Have mercy, Lord.

praises to your holy name.

Have mercy, Lord.

PRAYER OF THE DAY

The Lord be with you.

And also with you.
God of heaven and earth, before the foundation of the universe and the beginning of time you are the triune God: Author of creation, eternal Word of salvation, life-giving Spirit of wisdom. Guide us to all truth by your Spirit, that we may proclaim all that Christ has revealed and rejoice in the glory he shares with us. Glory and praise to you, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, now and forever. Amen.

SCRIPTURE READING

Isaiah 6:1-8

In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lofty; and the hem of his robe filled the temple. 2Seraphs were in attendance above him; each had six wings: with two they covered their faces, and with two they covered their feet, and with two they flew. 3And one called to another and said: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory.” 4The pivots on the thresholds shook at the voices of those who called, and the house filled with smoke. 5And I said: “Woe is me! I am lost, for I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips; yet my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts!”

  6Then one of the seraphs flew to me, holding a live coal that had been taken from the altar with a pair of tongs. 7The seraph touched my mouth with it and said: “Now that this has touched your lips, your guilt has departed and your sin is blotted out.” 8Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I; send me!”

                                       

The word of the Lord. 

Thanks be to God

SERMON

HYMN

Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty!           

 

1. Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty!

Early in the morning our song shall rise to thee.

Holy, holy, holy, merciful and mighty!

God in three persons, blessed Trinity!

 

2. Holy, holy, holy! All the saints adore thee,

casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea;

cherubim and seraphim falling down before thee,

which wert and art, and evermore shalt be.

 

 

3. Holy, holy, holy! Though the darkness hide thee,

though the eye of sinfulness thy glory may not see,

only thou art holy; there is none beside thee,

perfect in pow'r, in love and purity.

 

4. Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!

All thy works shall praise thy name in earth and sky and sea.

Holy, holy, holy, merciful and mighty!

God in three persons, blessed Trinity!

 

APOSTLES’ CREED

Living together in trust and hope, let us confess our faith.

I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, God’s 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 to the dead. On the third day he rose again; he ascended into heaven, he is seated at the right hand of the Father, and he will come 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

Each petition ends: Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

LORD’S PRAYER

As Jesus taught us, we are bold to pray:

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

We prepare for Holy Communion.

COMMUNION PRAYER

The Lord be with you.

And also with you.

Lift up your hearts.

We lift them to the Lord.

Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.  

It is right to give our thanks and praise.

Holy, mighty, and merciful Lord, heaven and earth are full of your glory .  .  . with you and the Holy Spirit, be all honor and glory, now and forever. Amen.

COMMUNION
This is the body and blood of Christ, given for you. Amen.

All are invited to eat and drink saying, “The body and blood of Christ is given for you.”


BENEDICTION

The blessing of God, who provides for us, feeds us, and journeys with us, + be upon you now and forever. Amen.

SENDING HYMN

Holy God, We Praise Your Name

1. Holy God, we praise your name;

Lord of all, we bow before you.

All on earth your scepter claim,

all in heav'n above adore you.

Infinite your vast domain,

everlasting is your reign.

 

2. Hark! The glad celestial hymn

angel choirs above are raising;

cherubim and seraphim,

in unceasing chorus praising,

fill the heav'ns with sweet accord:

"Holy, holy, holy Lord!"

 

3. Lo, the apostolic train

join your sacred name to hallow;

prophets swell the glad refrain,

and the white-robed martyrs follow;

and from morn to set of sun

through the church the song goes on.

 

4. Holy Father, holy Son,

Holy Spirit, three we name you,

though in essence only one;

undivided God we claim you

and, adoring, bend the knee

while we own the mystery.

SENDING IN PEACE

Go in peace.  You are the body of Christ. 

Thanks be to God!

You may honk your horns and wave to share the peace with others.

Please depart safely from the church parking lot following ushers’ directions.
