Since God’s Word presents the reception of this Sacrament as a most intimate expression of spiritual and confessional unity, we ask that only those who have publicly professed such unity with us by member- ship at Berea or another CLC church come forward. Those having questions or seeking a church home may speak with the Pastor.
The Lord’s Benediction
The Closing Hymn: “Lord, Whose Love Through Humble Service”
1. Lord, Whose Love through humble service Bore the weight of human need
Who upon the cross, forsaken, Offered mercy’s perfect deed.
We, your servants, bring the worship Not of voice alone, but heart,
Consecrating to your purpose Ev’ry gift that You impart.
2. Called by worship to Your service, Forth in Your dear Name we go,
To the child, the youth, the aged Love in living deeds to show;
Hope and health, good will and comfort, Counsel, aid and peace we give,
That Your servants, Lord, in freedom May Your mercy know and live.
