Holy Communion

Prayer of Confession (Unison)


God of empty tombs and empty people: When we hesitate to speak of your hope, forgive us, and give us voice. When we find it difficult to love another, forgive us, and give us new compassion. When we want to stand with the high and mighty, forgive us, and put us next to the poor and oppressed. When we stay locked behind our fears and doubts, forgive us, and send us out to share your grace. When we cannot believe your Word of new life, forgive us, and fill us with your joy. All pray in silence


Assurance of Pardon

Even when we try and fail again and again, God loves us still. In the richness of God’s grace, we accept the peace of Christ, which passes all understanding. Amen.



A Service of Word and Table III 15

We practice an open communion in this house. Whether you are a member of this congregation or of any church is of no consequence. This is not our table, it is Christ’s table. Christ our Lord invites to His table all who love him, who earnestly repent of their sin and seek to live in peace with one another. Gluten free bread is available. We receive communion this morning by the ancient method of intinction.



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 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. Amen.
