Opening Prayer


Prayer of Confession (in unison)

I, poor sinner, confess to thee, O Almighty, eternal, merciful God and Father, that I have sinned in manifold ways against thee and thy commandments.

I confess that I have stolen. I acknowledge my greed. I admit that in the use of my worldly goods I have set myself against thee and thy holy laws. Greedily and against charity have I grasped them. And scarcely, if at all, have I given of them when the need of my neighbor required it. 

I confess that I have born false witness, that I have been untrue and unfaithful toward my neighbor. I have lied to him.  I have told lies about him, and I have failed to defend his honor and reputation as my own.

I acknowledge in summary that my life is nothing else than sin and transgression of thy holy commandments and an inclination toward all evil.

Wherefore I beseech thee, O heavenly Father, that, thou wouldst graciously forgive me these and all my sins.  Keep and preserve me henceforth that I may walk only in thy way and live according to thy will; and all of this through Jesus Christ, thy dear Son, our Savior.  Amen.

--Martin Bucer 1539

Declaration of Forgiveness

Leader:  The saying is sure and worthy of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners (I Tim. 1:15).

People:  He himself bore our sins in his body on the cross, so that, free from sins, we might live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed (I Peter 2:24).

She was the daughter of John Reid Love, a former pastor of our church, and Alma Love, who sang in our choir for many years.  Josephine was at our homecoming on June 15.  She loved this church.  Now she has gone to be with the Lord and Savior of the church.






Psalm 16


1  Protect me, O God, for in you I take refuge.

2  I say to the LORD, "You are my Lord; I have no good apart from you."

3  As for the holy ones in the land, they are the noble, in whom is all my delight.

4  Those who choose another god multiply their sorrows; their drink offerings of blood I will not pour out or take their names upon my lips.

5  The LORD is my chosen portion and my cup; you hold my lot.

6  The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; I have a goodly heritage.

7  I bless the LORD who gives me counsel; in the night also my heart instructs me.

8  I keep the LORD always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.

9  Therefore my heart is glad, and my soul rejoices; my body also rests secure.

10  For you do not give me up to Sheol, or let your faithful one see the Pit.

11  You show me the path of life. In your presence there is fullness of joy; in your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
