*STATEMENT OF FAITH                Apostle’s Creed
TOGETHER:  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.

 PRAYER OF CONFESSION                                     
TOGETHER:  Generous God, we come before you today knowing that we often fall short of your call to generous living.  We allow ourselves to be blinded by wealth and power.  We ignore those around us who suffer injustice, poverty, and rejection.  We tune out the cries of the poor and those on the edges of our communities.  Help us to see and reflect your great generosity.  Strengthen us to reach out in service to those who are in need. Make us aware of those outside our own communities, that we may see them as your precious children and serve them in humility and joy.  May we continue to grow in grace as we learn how to serve you in the name of the great Servant, even Jesus Christ. Amen.
