The Fifth Sunday of Easter

—————————————————-

Chapel Time

Breath Prayers (or come up with one of your own):

Breath of God, breathe on me
Jesus, let me know Your love
In Christ, I find my rest
Jesus, be the King of my heart
Lord Jesus Christ Son of God, have mercy on me a sinner

 

The Apostle’s Creed

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 into hell;
the third day He rose again from the dead;
He ascended into heaven,
and sits on 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
We join together in the words of the psalmist from Psalm 51 (NIRV)
to confess our sins.

God, have mercy on me
according to Your faithful love.
Because Your love
is so tender and kind,
wipe out my lawless acts.

Wash away
all the evil things I’ve done.
Make me pure from my sin.

Take a moment to silently confess your sins before God.

God, create a pure heart in me.
Give me a new spirit
that is faithful to You.

Don’t send me
away from You.
Don’t take Your Holy Spirit
away from me.

Give me back
the joy that comes from
being saved by You.
Give me a spirit
that obeys You
so that I will keep going.

Amen.

Announcements: 

We will be celebrating Mother’s Day by having a gently-used clothing drive to support Cal-Safe. We’ll collect donations through end of month. Please talk to Ann Leong if you have any questions.

Our next season of Home Groups will begin this week. Home Group leaders will be reaching out to you soon!

Tonight there is a Chisomo Idea Fundraiser Dinner from 6:00 to 8:00 pm at Linda Vista Presbyterian Church. Here is Chisomo Idea’s mission statement: We connect the global family in practices of faith, human development, and activism within Africa’s most at-risk communities. There is no cost for the fundraiser dinner. Anchor City will be making a contribution and if individuals would like to contribute, they may. It is not, however required. We do encourage coming with open hearts to learn about what God is doing in Malawi and seeing how we might be a part of it!

Our next Church Without Walls gathering will be next Sunday, May 26th. We will gather at Lake Poway for a family-friendly hike and BBQ. Please feel free to invite friends!
