Confession of Faith

The Jesus Creed

Hear, O Israel,
the Lord our God, the Lord is one.
Love the Lord your God
with all your heart,
with all your soul,
with all your mind,
and with all your strength.

The second is this:
Love your neighbor as yourself.
There is no commandment
greater than these.

Prayer of Confession

Loving God,
in Jesus, You offer life, light, and love
to the world and to Your people.
In Your great mercy, forgive us
when we seek life only for ourselves.

Help us to receive and share
Your transforming love
with our neighbors near and far
through our words and our actions. 

Free us from selfishness
and grant us Your grace
to grow in joyful obedience,
freely serving You in the world
as agents of Your reconciling love.

— Moment of silent prayer & confession — 

In the knowledge of this love,
work through us to bring Your justice
and Your hope to the world,
in the power of the Holy Spirit,
through Jesus Christ our Savior,

Assurance of Forgiveness

Led by Pastor Jeya

Prayers of the People

God of love,
we turn to You in prayer,
confident that You are with us
and with all people in every moment.

We stand before You as people of hope,
trusting in Your care and protection.
May Your faithful love support us
and calm our fear and anxiety. 

God of healing,
in this time of Covid,
strengthen and protect those who heal,
bless and comfort those who suffer,
and guide leaders with Your wisdom. 

God of all the earth,
we pray for the suffering around the world,
especially in Beirut and Yemen.
Bring courage and hope to them;
through their pain,
send Your hope and love.

— Moment of silent prayer & intercession — 

Guide us, O God,
by Your word and Spirit,
that in Your light we may see light,
in Your truth, find freedom,
and in Your will, discover peace;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,

Passing of the Peace


Please feel free to send a Zoom chat or text message to say, “The peace of the Lord be with you. And also with you”
