*Davenport Members—I am starting a new project and would appreciate any donations of birthday or anniversary cards. Those that you receive from fund raising organizations are fine as long as they are church appropriate. If you happen to be “a happy card stamper” I’m guessing cards for kids and guys will be in short supply. There is a box on the table by the outside door in the narthex for you to drop them in. Thank you, Becky Christianson

Pastor Katie Kringstad


The Holy Spirit calls us together as the people of God. PRELUDE BELLS


GATHERING PRAYER - Dear Lord, I thank you for this day, these people, this church and community. I pray that you would be with us this hour and that you would open our hearts to your word. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.

GATHERING SONG Blest Be the Tie That Binds (ELW 656)

PEACE (ELW p. 152)



Let us pray.

A brief silence is kept before the prayer.

Almighty God, gracious Lord, we thank you that your Holy Spirit renews the church in every age. Pour out your Holy Spirit on your faithful people. Keep them steadfast in your word, protect and comfort them in times of trial, defend them against all enemies of the gospel, and bestow on the church your saving peace, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.

HYMN OF THE DAY Rise, O Church, Like Christ Arisen (ELW 548) verses 3-4

CREED (ELW p. 152)

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.


Set free from sin and death and nourished by the word of truth, we join in prayer for all of God’s creation.

A brief silence.

We pray for all who long for a word of truth and for the radical grace that flows from the cross. Inspire congregations to freely and boldly proclaim your love for all people with persistence and hope. Lord, in your mercy.

Hear our prayer.

We pray for your creation, for mountains, rivers, streams, cities, homesteads, and neighborhoods. Write in our hearts a new love and care for creation. Give us the will to curb wasteful habits and to hold accountable those who neglect the vulnerable. Lord, in your mercy.

Hear our prayer.

We pray for all who aspire to public office and for all who will vote on Tuesday at local polling places. Pour wisdom and understanding upon all who govern so that communities of justice and peace may thrive. Lord, in your mercy.

Hear our prayer.

We pray for all who long for healing in mind, body, or spirit. Strengthen hospitals, clinics, counseling centers, nursing homes, and recovery centers to be holy spaces of renewal that all might live the abundant life you intend. Lord, in your mercy.

Hear our prayer.

We pray for all who seek to grow in faith and love of you. Guide teaching and learning in confirmation, small groups, Sunday school, youth groups, schools, seminaries, and universities. Lord, in your mercy.

Hear our prayer.

We give thanks for all the saints and reformers who have gone before us who dwell in your holy habitation. Give us courage through their example to challenge unjust systems and work toward life-giving reformation. Lord, in your mercy.

Hear our prayer.

Confident that you hear us, O God, we boldly place our prayers into your hands; through Jesus Christ, our truth and life.



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.



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


The Lord bless you and keep you.

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

The Lord look upon you with favor and ☩ give you peace.


SENDING SONG: A Mighty Fortress Is Our God (ELW 504) verses 1-4


Go in peace. Serve the Lord.

Thanks be to God.
