HYMN OF THE DAY: Jesus Shall Reign (ELW 434) vs 4-5 – Norman Only 

APOSTLE’S CREED – Norman Only 

I believe in God, the Father almighty, 

creator of heaven and earth. 

I believe in Jesus Christ, God’s 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 to the dead.* 

On the third day he rose again; 

he ascended into heaven, 

he is seated at the right hand of the Father, 

and he will come to judge the living and the dead. 

I believe in the Holy Spirit, 

the holy catholic church, 

the communion of saints, 

the forgiveness of sins, 

the resurrection of the body, 

and the life everlasting. Amen. 


OFFERING SONG: There Is a Balm in Gilead (ELW 614) 


Let us pray. 

Blessed are you, O God, maker of all things. Through your goodness, you have blessed us with these gifts: ourselves, our time, and our possessions.

Use us, and what we have gathered, in feeding the world with your love, through the one who gave himself for us, Jesus Christ, our Savior, and Lord. Amen. 



As we celebrate Christ embodied in human form, we pray for God’s blessing on the church, the world, and all of creation.  A brief silence. 

Loving God, we pray that your example of teaching with confidence and authority builds up your church in love. May all church leaders and teachers honor your instruction and model your inclusive ways. God of grace,  receive our prayer. 


Renewing God, we pray for all of creation, that waterways flow clean and clear, natural spaces are protected, and our planet is healed. Let us commit to thoughtful care of the earth. God of grace, 

receive our prayer. 


Justice-seeking God, we pray for those in government and community leadership, that they lead with honor and mindfulness. May they remember their covenants and be upright in their ways. God of grace, 

receive our prayer. 


Compassionate God, we pray for all in need, especially those who have known rejection, any who struggle with long-term illness or chronic pain, those without access to safe housing or health care, and any who suffer. God of grace,  receive our prayer. 


Still-speaking God, we pray for our congregation, for its artists and musicians, for its educators and caregivers, that all gifts are used to care for those in need and to live out your example of accompaniment, gospel witness, and love. God of grace, receive our prayer. 


Eternal God, we remember all who have been teachers, mentors, and companions in the church and in our lives. We trust that all who have died rest in your loving care. God of grace, receive our prayer. 

Knowing the Holy Spirit intercedes for us, we offer these prayers and the silent prayers of our hearts in the name of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen. 


SENDING God blesses us and sends us in mission to the world. 

BLESSING (ELW p. 155) 

The Lord bless you and keep you. 

The Lord’s face shine upon and be gracious to you. 

The Lord look upon you with favor and  give you peace.  In the name of the Father, Son & Holy Spirit. Amen. 

SENDING SONG: God, Whose Almighty Word (ELW 673) vs 3-4 


Go in peace. Serve the Lord. Thanks be to God.
