Confession of Faith

A New Creed
from the United Church of Canada

We are not alone,
we live in God’s world.

We believe in God:
who has created and is creating,
who has come in Jesus,
the Word made flesh,
to reconcile and make new,
who works in us and others
by the Spirit.

We trust in God. 

We are called to be the Church:
    to celebrate God’s presence,
    to live with respect in Creation,
    to love and serve others,
    to seek justice and resist evil,
    to proclaim Jesus, crucified and risen,
       our judge and our hope.

In life, in death, in life beyond death,
    God is with us.
We are not alone.
Thanks be to God.
Amen.

Prayer of Confession

God of grace,
You sent Your Son
to live, die, and rise to new life
in order that death
might be brought to an end
and that we might live
new lives in Him.

Forgive us when, like the disciples,
we give into fear and doubt,
cynicism and despair,
to ways that lead to death.
Come to us, risen Christ,
breathe on us and fill us
with the joy and peace
of Your presence.

— Moment of silent prayer & confession — 

O God, in Your loving purpose,
answer our prayers and fulfill our hopes.
In all things for which we pray,
give us the will to seek to bring them about,
for the sake of Jesus Christ.
Amen.

Assurance of Forgiveness

Led by Pastor Jeya


Prayers of the People

God of heaven and earth,
through Jesus Christ You promise to hear us
when we pray to You in His name.
Confident in Your love and mercy
we come to you in prayer today.

Empower Your Church throughout the world
in our life, worship, and witness.
Unite us in Your truth and love
and break down dividing walls
that we may share one table
and serve You in one common ministry.

Guide the rulers of the nations,
move them to set aside fear, greed, and pride.
Cause them to seek justice and peace,
that all Your children may dwell secure,
free of war and injustice.

Hear the cries of the suffering,
support them with Your love and strength.
Lift up the discouraged and worn out,
encourage the anxious and fearful,
restore Your people and all of creation. 

— Moment of silent prayer — 

O God, in Your loving purpose,
answer our prayers and fulfill our hopes.
In all things for which we pray,
give us the will to seek to bring them about,
for the sake of Jesus Christ.
Amen.

Passing of the Peace
