PRAYER OF CONFESSION
God of grace and love, we confess that we have failed to love you with all our heart, soul, and mind; and to love our neighbor as ourselves. We ignore your commandments, stray from your way, and follow other gods. Have mercy on us. Forgive our sin and raise us to new life that we may serve you faithfully and give honor to your holy name….
Silent Prayers of confession
WORDS OF ASSURANCE
“...God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us,” and God’s love for us is demonstrated in this: “...while we still were sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:5,8) The good news therefore is this: in Jesus Christ we are forgiven.
Thanks be to God!

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 Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; he descended into hell; the third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy catholic* Church; the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting. Amen.
