30 When he was at table with them, he took the bread and blessed and broke it and gave it to them. 31 And their eyes were opened, and they recognized him. And he vanished from their sight. 32 They said to each other, “Did not our hearts burn within us while he talked to us on the road, while he opened to us the Scriptures?”

The Invocation And Opening Prayer

The Scripture Reading – Luke 24: 13-35

As our risen Savior lovingly guided the hearts and minds of these discouraged followers on the road to Emmaus by “opening” the prophetic Scriptures to see the necessity, significance and glorious outcome of His mission, so He opens our hearts to see in Scripture the Gospel power and victory of our crucified and risen Savior.

1 “Abide with us, the day is waning,”  Thus prayed the two while on the way;
We read that Thou, O Lord, remaining,  Didst all their doubts and fears allay.
Incline Thine ear, Thou King of Grace,
When, praying thus, we seek Thy face.

3 Abide with us; with heav’nly gladness  Illumine, Lord, our darkest day;
And when we weep in pain and sadness,
Be Thou our Solace, Strength, and Stay.
Tell of Thy woe, Thy vict’ry won,
When Thou didst pray: “Thy will be done.” [tlh num=194 st=”v 1-3″]

The Nicene Creed (Inside Back Cover Of Hymnal)

I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible.

And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of His Father before all worlds; God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God; begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father, by whom all things were made; Who, for us men and for our salvation, came down from heaven, and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary, and was made man; and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate; He suffered and was buried; and the third day He rose again, according to the Scriptures; and ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of the Father. And He will come again with glory to judge both the living and the dead, whose kingdom will have no end.

And I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of Life; who proceeds from the Father and the Son; who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified; who spoke by the prophets. And I believe one holy Christian and Apostolic Church. I acknowledge one Baptism for the remission of sins, and I look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.

The Offering

Our Communion Confessional And Preparatory Prayer

C: As we prepare our hearts to receive the blessing of your love in this holy Sacrament, we come before Your altar as did the Emmaus disciples of old. We confess our similar sins and weaknesses, our doubts and lack of understanding, our discouragement and fears. Open our eyes and hearts to see your Easter presence among us in Your Word and Sacrament. May we rejoice in the forgiveness, peace and victory which become ours by faith.

The Consecration Of The Elements

The Distribution Of The Sacrament (Hymns LSB 467 : Awake, My Heart, with Gladness Hymnary.org link )

(Because 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 oneness of faith and belief with us by membership at Berea or another CLC church come forward. Please speak with pastor if you are seeking a church home or have any questions.)
