Corporate Confession

God of the living and the dead,
we are burdened by the things we have done
and by the things we have not done.
We remember our broken promises
and missed opportunities;
the gifts we have taken for granted,
the love we have not shown or returned.
Forgive us, comfort and heal us.
Lift our guilt from us,
that we may walk in freedom and grace.

Scripture Reading

Micah 6:8

8 He has showed you, O man, what is good.

And what does the Lord require of you?

To act justly and to love mercy

and to walk humbly with your God.

Proclamation of our Faith – Apostles Creed

I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
the Maker of heaven and earth,
and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord:

Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost,
born of the virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, dead, and buried;

He descended into hell.

The third day He arose again from the dead;

He ascended into heaven,
and sits on the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
from whence he shall come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Ghost;
the holy catholic church;
the communion of saints;
the forgiveness of sins;
the resurrection of the body;
and the life everlasting.
