Opening Hymn WS 746 : Father Most Holy, Merciful and Tender Hymnary.org link (Worship Supplement) – “Father, Most Holy”

The Service Of The Word ……………….. P 1-5 (Worship Supplement)

The Scripture Reading – Luke 14: 15-27

Although Jesus’ parable provides a description of the unbeliever and his rejection of the salvation invite in favor of other pressing earthly priorities, His Words that follow are a warning lest we too begin loving our earthly relationships or lives more than our Savior. Remember what it means to follow Jesus!

The Apostles Creed (Supplement Page 15)

I believe in God the Father almighty, Maker of heaven and earth;

I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried; He descended into hell; The third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven And is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty; From there He will come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Christian Church, the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body and the life everlasting. Amen.
