GATHERING This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it. The Holy Spirit calls us together as the people of God.

GATHERING SONG God, Whose Almighty Word (ELW 673) vs 1-2




Let us pray. A brief silence is kept before the prayer.

O God, the protector of all who trust in you, without you nothing is strong, nothing is holy. Embrace us with your mercy, that with you as our ruler and guide, we may live through what is temporary without losing what is eternal, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.




FIRST READING: Malachi 4:1-2a

PSALM: Psalm 98

SECOND READING: 2 Thessalonians 3:6-13

GOSPEL: Luke 21:5-19


HYMN OF THE DAY: How Firm a Foundation (ELW 796)

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.


United with your saints across time and place, we pray for our shared world. A brief silence.

Reviving God, keep your church active in its mission and ministry. Encourage bishops, deacons, pastors, and lay leaders to risk boldly in their proclamation and fill them with wisdom and endurance for challenging times. Lord, in your mercy, receive our prayer.

Renewing God, as the northern hemisphere prepares for winter, make us mindful of the ordered beauty of your creation. Teach us to treasure cycles of rest and new life. Help us care for what you have made. Lord, in your mercy, receive our prayer.

Loving God, accompany all who make sacrifices for the sake of others. Safeguard first responders and active duty military personnel. Grant peace to veterans and heal any wounds in body, mind, or spirit. Lord, in your mercy, receive our prayer.

Healing God, your people cry out to you. Sustain doctors, nurses, and hospital personnel in their tireless work. Uphold mental health professionals and those in their care. May the sun of righteousness rise on all who are sick. Lord, in your mercy, receive our prayer.

Uniting God, unite this assembly in its shared mission and ministry for the sake of the gospel. Highlight ways we can better work together and give us patience to work through disagreement. Lord, in your mercy, receive our prayer.

Consoling God, abide with all who grieve for loved ones who have died. Comfort us with the promise of resurrection and new life with you. Lord, in your mercy, receive our prayer.

Accept these prayers, gracious God, and those known only to you; through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

OFFERING SONG: Lord of All Hopefulness (ELW 765)


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.


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


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.


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


Go in peace. Serve the Lord.

Thanks be to God.

Reader: Joan Pratt

Prelude Welcome & Opening

THANKSGIVING FOR BAPTISM Pastor:In the name of the Father, and of the ☩ Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Reader: Amen. Pastor: Dear friends, today we gather in honor of those who have served our country. We honor their devotion to duty, and their commitment to the cause of peacemaking, which is guided by the promise of faith, given to us in baptism. Together, we are joined to Christ in the waters of baptism, and we are clothed with God's mercy and forgiveness. Let us give thanks for this gift. Reader: We praise you for the gift of water that sustains life, and above all we praise you for the gift of new life in Jesus Christ. Shower us with your Spirit, and renew our lives with your forgiveness, grace, and love. To you be given honor and praise, through Jesus Christ our Lord in the unity of the Holy Spirit, now and forever. Amen. HYMN: God of Our Fathers

THANKSIVING FOR THOSE WHO DIED IN ACTIVE SERVICE Pastor: God of peace, you are with us in times of trouble and you sustain those in harm’s way. We give you thanks for those who have served their nation and died to protect it. We thank you for their dedication and their willingness to lay down their lives for others. Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer. Reader: A reading from John: “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you. I do not call you servants any longer, because the servant does not know what the master is doing; but I have called you friends, because I have made known to you everything that I have heard from my Father.”

THANKSGIVING FOR THOSE WHO DIED AFTER RETURNING HOME Pastor: God our refuge, you know the realities of our human suffering and you embrace us at all times. We remember those who returned home from war, but who now live with you i
