A reading from the First Book of Samuel

Hear what the Spirit is saying to God’s people. Thanks be to God.

Psalm 139

  1. LORD, you have searched me out and known me; *

you know my sitting down and my rising up; you discern my thoughts from afar.

  • You trace my journeys and my resting-places * and are acquainted with all my ways. 3 Indeed, there is not a word on my lips, * but you, O LORD, know it altogether.
  • You press upon me behind and before * and lay your hand upon me.
  • Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; * it is so high that I cannot attain to it. 12 For you yourself created my inmost parts; *

you knit me together in my mother’s womb.

  1. I will thank you because I am marvelously made; * your works are wonderful, and I know it well.
  2. My body was not hidden from you, *

while I was being made in secret and woven in the depths of the earth.

  1. Your eyes beheld my limbs, yet unfinished in the womb; all of them were written in your book; *

they were fashioned day by day, when as yet there was none of them. 16 How deep I find your thoughts, O God! * how great is the sum of them! 17 If I were to count them, they would be more in number than the sand; *

to count them all, my life span would need to be like yours.

A reading from First Corinthians

Hear what the Spirit is saying to God’s people. Thanks be to God.

Gospel Song

The Gospel of John

The Holy Gospel of our Savior Jesus Christ according to John. Glory to you, Lord Christ.

The Gospel of the Lord. Praise to you, Lord Christ.

Cathy: The Sermon A period of silence follows the sermon.

Nicene Creed

We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen. We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one Being with the Father; through him all things were made. For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven, was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary and became truly human. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried. On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son. Who with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets. We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church. We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.

Prayers of the People

Leader: Jesus calls on us to follow him. Let us call on Jesus for the needs, concerns, and hopes of all peoples. (Response: Lord, have mercy.)

The Confession Silence may be kept.

God of all mercy, we confess that we have sinned against you, opposing your will in our lives. We have denied your goodness in each other, in ourselves, and in the world you have created. We repent of the evil that enslaves us, the evil we have done, and the evil done on our behalf. Forgive, restore, and strengthen us through our Savior Jesus Christ, that we may abide in your love and serve only your will. Amen.

The Absolution The Peace

Eucharistic Prayer 3

Enriching Our Worship

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.

The celebrant continues

Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might, heaven and earth are full of your glory. Hosanna in the highest. Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest. The celebrant continues

Dying, you destroyed our death. Rising, you restored our life. Christ Jesus, come in glory!

The celebrant continues

Blessed are you now and for ever. AMEN.

The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your Name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us. Save us from the time of trial, and deliver us from evil.

For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours, now and for ever. Amen.

The Breaking of the Bread

Celebrant         We break this bread to share in the Body of Christ.

People             We who are many are one body, for we all share in the one bread.

A Prayer for Spiritual Communion

Holy God: Together with your faithful people gathered at every altar of your Church this day, we offer you thanks and praise. We believe that you are truly present in this Holy Sacrament. Since we cannot at this time receive Communion, we pray you to come into our hearts as we meditate on your Body and Blood. We unite ourselves with you and embrace you with all our hearts, our soul, and our minds. Amen.

Music at Communion Post-Communion Prayer

Loving God, we give you thanks for restoring us in your image and nourishing us with

spiritual food in the Sacrament of Christ’s Body and Blood. Now send us forth a people, forgiven, healed, renewed; that we may proclaim your love to the world and continue in the risen life of Christ our Savior. Amen.
