*HYMN 8 “Eternal Father, Strong to Save”
PRAYER OF CONFESSION
I have deceived myself, dear Christ, I confess it. I have fallen from the heights to the depths. O lift me up again, for well I know that delusion came because I wanted it. If I presume again, I’ll fall again and fall to my undoing. Forgive my arrogance and humble me by the grace of thy salvation. It cannot be that I alone shall find you hard and unresponsive…
Silent prayers of confession
WORDS OF ASSURANCE
As the Apostle Paul wrote: “If you confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead you will be saved” (Romans 10: 9). The good news therefore is this: “now is the acceptable time; now is the day of salvation!” (2 Corinthians 6:2b)
Thanks be to God!

*HYMN 840 It Is Well with My Soul
*AFFIRMATION OF FAITH The Apostles’ Creed
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.
*“catholic” (little c) is translated as “universal” and is not a reference to the Roman Catholic Church.
