PRELUDE        (Please enter into a prayerful mode)

*HYMN OF PRAISE #1        “God Is Here!”

*STATEMENT OF FAITH                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 Hades; the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, and sitteth 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 church universal, the communion of the saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.  Amen.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.  As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end.  Amen, Amen.

IN UNISON:  O Lamb of God, we remain unmoved by your dying.  We watch you forgive, and hoard grace for ourselves.  We know you die, and we go on about our usual way.  Forgive us for thinking we can see when we are woefully blind to our own need of you.  Heal our broken, imperfect hearts, help lift our blindness so we may truly see and that we might love more fully and following You, O Lamb, not into death but into life. Amen.          (Time for personal silent reflection)
