When morning gilds the skies
Opening Acclamation and Prayer
Blessed be God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
And blessed be his kingdom, now and for ever. Amen.
Gloria in excelsis
Glory to God in the highest,
and peace to his people on earth.
Lord God, heavenly King,
almighty God and Father,
we worship you, we give you thanks,
we praise you for your glory.
Lord Jesus Christ, only Son of the Father,
Lord God, Lamb of God,
you take away the sin of the world:
have mercy on us;
you are seated at the right hand of the Father:
receive our prayer.
For you alone are the Holy One,
you alone are the Lord,
you alone are the Most High,
with the Holy Spirit,
in the glory of God the Father. Amen.
Collect of the Day
Response: And also with you.
2 Kings 2:1-12
Response: Thanks be to God.
The LORD, the God of gods, has spoken; *
he has called the earth from the rising of the
sun to its setting.
Out of Zion, perfect in its beauty, *
God reveals himself in glory.
Our God will come and will not keep silence; *
before him there is a consuming flame,
and round about him a raging storm.
He calls the heavens and the earth from above *
to witness the judgment of his people.
"Gather before me my loyal followers, *
those who have made a covenant with me
and sealed it with sacrifice."
Let the heavens declare
the rightness of his cause; *
for God himself is judge.
Lord, in your mercy. Hear our prayer.
Confession of Sin
Response: Thanks be to God.
Christ, upon the mountain peak
First response: Glory to you, Lord Christ.
Second response: Praise to you, Lord Christ.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord,
the giver of life, who proceeds from the
Father and the Son. With the Father and
the Son he is worshiped and glorified. He
has spoken through the Prophets. We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic
Church. We acknowledge one baptism for
the forgiveness of sins. We look for the
resurrection of the dead, and the life of
the world to come. Amen.
Prayers of the People
2 Corinthians 4:3-6
We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the
only Son of God, eternally begotten of the
Father, God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God, begotten, not
made, of one Being with the Father.
Through him all things were made. For us
and for our salvation he came down from
heaven: by the power of the Holy Spirit he
became incarnate from the Virgin Mary,
and was made man. For our sake he was
crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered
death and was buried. On the third day he
rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is
seated at the right hand of the Father. He
will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will
have no end.
The Rev. Jason Wells
We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all
that is, seen and unseen.
Let us confess our sins against God and our
Most merciful God, we confess that 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. We
are truly sorry and we humbly repent. For
the sake of your Son Jesus Christ, have
mercy on us and forgive us; that we may
delight in your will, and walk in your
ways, to the glory of your Name. Amen.
The peace of the Lord be always with you.
And also with you.
All people that on earth do dwell
Eucharistic Prayer A
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, and the power,
and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.
Breaking of the Bread
Alleluia. Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us.
Therefore let us keep the feast. Alleluia.
All baptized Christians are welcome to receive Holy
Communion at the Altar. If you come to the rail and
cross your arms over your chest, you may receive a
blessing instead of Communion.
If you would like to be baptized, please speak to
the Rev. Jason Wells as soon as possible for scheduling.
Holy, holy, holy
Therefore, we proclaim the mystery of faith,
Christ has died.
Christ is risen.
Christ will come again.
And now, as our Savior Christ has taught us,
we are bold to say,
Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy Name,
thy kingdom come,
thy will be done,
Seek ye first
Let us pray.
God of abundance, you have fed us with
the bread of life and cup of salvation; you
have united us with Christ and one another; and you have made us one with all
your people in heaven and on earth. Now
send us forth in the power of your Spirit,
that we may proclaim your redeeming
love to the world and continue for ever in
the risen life of Christ our Savior. Amen.
Alleluia, sing to Jesus
Response: Thanks be to God.
