CALL TO WORSHIP Rev. Trent
*HYMN “It Came upon the Midnight Clear” No. 218
*AFFIRMATION OF FAITH “Apostles’ Creed” No. 881
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; the
third day he rose from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right
hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick
and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion
of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.
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.

CONGREGATIONAL PRAYER & LORD’S PRAYER Rev. Trent
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come; thy will
be done; on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us
our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into
temptation; but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, the power and the
glory, for ever. Amen.
