12 What shall I render to the LORD for all his benefits to me?
13 I will lift up the cup of salvation and call on the name of the LORD,
14 I will pay my vows to the LORD in the presence of all his people.
15 Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints.
16 O LORD, I am your servant; I am your servant, the son of your maidservant. You have loosed my bonds.
17 I will offer to you the sacrifice of thanksgiving and call on the name of the LORD.
18 I will pay my vows to the LORD in the presence of all his people,
19 in the courts of the house of the LORD, in your midst, O Jerusalem. Praise the LORD!
Confession & Absolution
Make sure each person present has opportunity to confess to a brother or sister in the fellowship. Go through both parts as many times as needed to accommodate all who are gathered.
I am a sinner in need of God’s grace. My thoughts have been impure. My actions and words have caused harm. I’ve been slow to recognize my failings, and slow to seek forgiveness. But I’m here now. I am a sinner in need of God’s grace.
You are a baptized child of God. You have been united with Christ in his death, and his resurrection. God has put to death sin in you, and he raises you to a new and perfect life in Christ. In this new life you have forgiveness and salvation as a beloved child of God. Go in peace.
Scripture Readings- Ruth Hammes
Gospel Reading- Kevin Hischke
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.
Our Father who is in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your 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. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen.
Musical Offering- 4Given
Be Thou my Vision O Lord of my heart
Naught be all else to me save that Thou art
Thou my best thought by day or by night
Waking or sleeping Thy presence my light
Regarding "Home Church Holy Communion" on Maundy Thursday
A Note from Pastor Cameron
If you wish to participate in the Lord’s Supper you may click here for a Home Church Holy Communion service with instructions. It is not necessary to receive communion today and you should not go against your conscience in this matter. But you are free to use the attached service tonight or during other worship times when you are unable to gather with the congregation for worship.
