Online Worship-Good Friday April 10, 2020

Invocation

Reader 1: It is good to worship our God

Reader 2:  The God who is Father, Son and Spirit

Together: Amen

Reader 1:  He was wounded for our transgressions; He was crushed for our iniquities;

Reader 2:  upon Him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with His stripes we are healed.

Reader 1:  O Lord, rebuke me not in Your anger,

Reader 2:  nor discipline me in Your wrath!

Reader 1:  For Your arrows have sunk into me,

Reader 2:  and Your hand has come down on me.

Reader 1:  There is no soundness in my flesh because of Your indignation;

Reader 2:  there is no health in my bones because of my sin.

Reader 1:  For my iniquities have gone over my head;

Reader 2:  like a heavy burden, they are too heavy for me.

Reader 1:  I confess my iniquity; I am sorry for my sin.

Reader 2:  Make haste to help me, O Lord, my salvation!

Reader 1:  He was wounded for our transgressions; He was crushed for our iniquities;

Reader 2:  upon Him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with His stripes we are healed.

Prayer of the Day

Reader 1: God of mercy, Your love for us is so deep that Your Son gave His life in our place on the cross.

Reader 2: We are forgiven through the blood of Jesus. Lead us to love You with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength, and to love our neighbors as ourselves. Amen.

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.

Christian Confessing:

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.

Christian Responding:

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.

Both:               Amen

Scripture Readings- Mike Koenig

Jesus I Will Ponder Now

Nicene Creed

I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth and of all things visible and invisible.

And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of his Father before all worlds, God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God, begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father, by whom all things were made; who for us men and for our salvation came down from heaven and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary and was made man; and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate.  He suffered and was buried.  And the third day he rose again according to the Scriptures and ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of the Father.  And he will come again with glory to judge both the living and the dead, whose kingdom will have no end.

And I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son together is worshiped and glorified, who spoke by the prophets.  And I believe in one holy Christian and apostolic Church, I acknowledge one Baptism for the remission of sins, and I look for the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come.  Amen.

Lord's Prayer

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.
