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.
Amen.

MESSAGE-  “Life Together #4: Gerber Baby Christians” – Rev. Trent

SACRAMENT OF HOLY COMMUNION Hymnal No. 13-14
Merciful God, we confess that we have not loved You with our whole heart. We
have failed to be an obedient church. We have not done Your will, we have broken
Your law, we have rebelled against Your love, we have not loved our neighbors,
and we have not heard the cry of the needy. Forgive us, we pray. Free us for joyful
obedience, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
In the name of Jesus Christ you are forgiven
The Lord be with you.
And also with you.
Lift up your hearts
We lift them up to the Lord.
Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.
It is right to give our thanks and praise.
Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might, heaven and earth are full of glory.
Hosanna in the highest. Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna
in the highest.
Christ has died; Christ is risen; Christ will come again.
