The Apostle’s Creed

Led by Sejun Park

I believe in God the Father Almighty,
Maker of heaven and earth.
And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord,
Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
Born of the virgin Mary,
Suffered under Pontius Pilate,
Was crucified, dead, and buried;

He descended to hell.
The third day he rose again from the dead.
He ascended into heaven
And sits at the right hand
Of God the Father Almighty.
From thence He shall come
To judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,
The holy Christian church,
The communion of saints,
The forgiveness of sins,
The resurrection of the body,
And the life everlasting.
Amen.

Prayer of Confession

Adapted from re:Worship

God of compassion, we come before You
to ask forgiveness and mercy.
When, in our excesses,
we consume more than our share
while others go with basic needs unmet:
Forgive us, merciful God.
When we are blinded by our affluence
and fail to reach out in care and concern:
Forgive us, merciful God.

When we are overwhelmed by desires to acquire
and consume more than we need:
Forgive us, merciful God.
When possessions cloud our view of You
and Your gracious love:
Forgive us, merciful God.

— Moment of silent prayer & confession —

In Your lovingkindness, have mercy on us.
Breathe new life into us once again,
so we might be the people You created us to be.
Restore to us the joy of Your salvation
that we might do justice, love kindness,
and walk humbly with the Lord Jesus Christ,
in whose name we pray,
Amen.

Assurance of Forgiveness

Led by Pastor Jeya

We accept God’s forgiveness,
confident that in dying to sin,
Christ raises us to new life.




Prayers of the People

Led by Grace Cho

Heavenly Father,
As we journey through our second Lent of this Covid-19 pandemic,
we pray for a deeper connection to You.
Help us to remember You in every moment.
Let us praise You in our moments of joy,
let us seek Your peace in our moments of frustration,
let us lean on You in our moments of sadness and pain.

Let our hope be strong for a new and better normal
as we see the end of the pandemic approaching.
Give us courage and voice to be influencers in our communities,
to shape society to be good, caring, and united when we can gather again.

We pray for our divided country,
that is filled with disdain towards our brothers and sisters
who have differing opinions.
Open the eyes of our country’s leaders,
to see each other, whatever their political beliefs,
as You see us: equally loved; Your children.

Let them cherish goodness, embrace honesty,
and understand the power of compromise.
And we pray all these things also for the the world leaders,
ourselves, and our neighbors as well.
In Jesus name we pray,
Amen.
