Holy Communion

            Confession & Promise of Forgiveness

We confess that we are in bondage to sin and cannot free ourselves.   We have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed,

by what we have done, and by what we have left undone.

We have not loved you with our whole heart;

We have not loved our neighbors as ourselves.

For the sake of your Son, Jesus Christ,

have mercy on us and forgive us, renew us and, lead us,

so that we may delight in your will and walk in your ways,

to the glory of your Holy name.   AMEN.   

Communion is served
