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

Merciful God,
We confess we have sinned against You
in thought, word, and deed,
by what we have done,
and by what we have left undone.
We have not loved You
with our whole heart, mind, and strength.
We have not loved our neighbors as ourselves.

In Your mercy,
forgive what we have been,
help us amend what we are,
and direct what we shall be,
that we may delight in Your will
and walk in Your ways,
to the glory of Your holy name.

— Moment of silent prayer & confession — 

By Your loving mercy,
help us to live in Your light
and abide in Your ways,
for the sake of Jesus Christ our Savior.

Assurance of Forgiveness

Prayers of the People

Special prayer focus on Yemen throughout July

God of all the world,
we give You thanks
that Your love and presence
covers all corners of the globe.
We ask You to send Your Spirit to help us,
as we join Your mission
of love, justice, and hope,
in our cities and around the world.

We trust in Jesus Christ,
who is the Prince of peace,
the One who reconciles all the earth.
Shape us as peacemakers,
praying and working for Your will to be done
on earth as it is in heaven.

Merciful God,
we pray for Your reign of peace
to rule in war-torn Yemen.
Teach us to follow Your example,
to show compassion to people in need.
Give us the strength to help lift the fallen
and give them hope.

We pray especially for the children and families
who are facing hunger and violence.
Strengthen the humanitarian workers
who are striving to aid them.

— Moment of silent prayer & intercession — 

Lord of love, help us follow Your call
to provide food to the hungry,
drink to the thirsty,
and to stand in solidarity with the oppressed.
In Jesus’ name we pray,

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”
