The Invocation & Responsive Reading Of Psalm 119 (Excerpts)
P: How shall a young man keep his way pure?
C: By living according to Your Word.
P: I seek You with all my heart; Do not let me stray from Your Word. Praise be to You, O Lord; Teach me Your Will.
C: I meditate on Your teachings and consider Your Will; I rejoice in Your Word as one rejoices in great riches. I delight in Your Word and will not neglect it.
P: Your Word, O Lord, is eternal; It stands firm in the heavens. Your faithfulness continues through all generations.
C: Your Word endures to this day; For you Yourself have taught me. Oh, how I love Your Word; For it gives me understanding and blessing and makes me wiser than all my enemies.
P: Direct my footsteps according to Your Word; Teach me knowledge and good judgment, for I believe in Your commandments; Turn my eyes and heart away from worthless things.Let not sin rule over me; Make Your face shine upon Your servant.
C: Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. Sustain me according to Your promise; Uphold me, and I will be delivered. For all Your words are true and trustworthy.
P: My soul longs for Your salvation, for I have put my hope in Your Word. Save me, for I am Yours today and forever. Preserve my life in your righteousness.
C: Your statutes are my heritage forever; They are the joy of my heart; My heart is set on keeping Your Words to the very end. May Your unfailing love be my comfort. Let me live that I may praise You.
The Apostles Creed
I believe in God, the Father almighty, 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; The third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father almighty; From thence He shall come again to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy Christian church, the communion of saints; The forgiveness of sins; The resurrection of the body; And the life everlasting. Amen.

The Offering And “Christian Questions”
The Consecration And Distribution Of The Holy Sacrament
Hymn 306 – “Lord Jesus Christ, Thou Hast Prepared”
(Because God’s Word presents the reception of this Sacrament as an intimate expression of spiritual and confessional unity, we ask that only those who are confirmed members of Berea or another CLC congregation come forward. This is not a judgment on anyone’s faith, only an expression of ours. Any having questions or seeking a church home is invited to speak with Pastor.)
