*PRAYER OF CONFESSION

 

                  Gracious God we humbly confess of faults.  For anger, impatience and quickness to misunderstand - forgive us.  For thoughtlessness, indifference, and self-centering - forgive us.  For our times of failing to be kind to others -forgive us.  For all the times we have not followed Jesus - forgive, heal, and transform us into your servant people. In the name of Christ Jesus we pray.  Amen.

RESPONDING TO GOD’S WORD

*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
