Call to Confession


Prayer of Confession:  

Lord, have mercy on us.  We talk about love, but our actions betray us.  We talk about love, but we neglect the needy.  We talk about love, but we fail to love one another.  Lord, have mercy on us. Forgive us, and abide in us by the power of your Spirit so that our lives may show our love for Jesus Christ, in whose body we live and in whose name we pray.

Scripture Lesson                                                                                 Psalm 23(KJV)

23 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. 3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. 4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. 5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. 6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.



                                                                 Sermon:   “A Psalm for the Living”  Pastor Donna Schiro

*Affirmation of Faith: 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 Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; He descended into hell; the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty, from thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead.  I believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy Catholic Church; the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting.  Amen.

                                                *Hymn of Affirmation #260  “Just as I Am, without One Plea” (Vs. 3,5)
