Announcements, and Greeting 

A         This is the Day the Lord has made.

C         Let us rejoice and be glad in it!

Entrance Hymn LSB #518 1,24,3                        “By all Your Saints in Warfare”

P          In the name of the Father and of the + Son and of the Holy Spirit.

C         Amen.

P          Beloved in the Lord! Let us draw near with a true heart and confess our sins unto God our Father, beseeching Him in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to grant us forgiveness. Our help is in the name of the Lord,

C         who made heaven and earth.

P          I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the Lord,

C         and You forgave the iniquity of my sin.

P          O almighty God, merciful Father,

C         I, a poor, miserable sinner, confess unto You all my sins and iniquities with which I have ever offended You and justly deserved Your temporal and eternal punishment. But I am heartily sorry for them and sincerely repent of them, and I pray You of Your boundless mercy and for the sake of the holy, innocent, bitter sufferings and death of Your beloved Son, Jesus Christ, to be gracious and merciful to me, a poor, sinful being.

P          Upon this your confession, I, by virtue of my office, as a called and ordained servant of the Word, announce the grace of God unto all of you, and in the stead and by the command of my Lord Jesus Christ I forgive you all your sins in the name of the Father and of the + Son and of the Holy Spirit.

C         Amen.


Kyrie and Gloria in Excelsis

Salutation and Prayer of the Day 

P          The Lord be with you.

C         And also with you.

P          Let us Pray. O Lord, You granted Your prophets strength to resist the temptations of the devil and courage to proclaim repentance.

C         Give us pure hearts and minds to follow You faithfully even unto suffering and death; through Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. AMEN

Responsive Psalm                                                                    Ps. 85

P          Lord, you were favorable to your land; you restored the fortunes of Jacob.

C         You forgave the iniquity of your people; you covered all their sin.


P          You withdrew all your wrath; you turned from your hot anger.

C         Restore us again, O God of our salvation, and put away your indignation toward us!


P          Yes, the Lord will give what is good, and our land will yield its increase.

C         Righteousness will go before him and make his footsteps a way.


ALL   Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit; as it was in the 

                       beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen.

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 Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell. The third day He rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty. From thence He will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Christian Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.

Christian: the ancient text reads “catholic,” meaning the whole. Church as it confesses the wholeness of Christian doctrine.
