The Invocational Prayer

The Reading Of Psalm 100 (By Congregation)

C: Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth! Serve the Lord with gladness! Come into His presence with singing! Know that the Lord is God! It is He Who made us, and we are His; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture. Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise! Give thanks to Him! Bless His Name! For the Lord is good; His steadfast love endures forever, and His faithfulness to all generations. Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit; As it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen.

The Confessional Of Sins And Absolution

The Communion Liturgy (Hymnal: Pages 208-210)

The Distribution Of The Sacrament (Hymn 629 + 4 Extra Verses)

 6 How shall I live   For Him Who fully does forgive
My sinful ways? Through all my days
I’ll strive to honor Him with praise
Until the end, my life amend.

7 What shall I fear  Though dangers threaten and be near?
His promise sure, Makes me secure,
He guides my life from year to year.
So faithfully, God is with me.

8 I too, shall rise  To join my Savior in the skies;
When trumpets blast, And life is past He will awaken me.
Eternally, with Him I’ll be.

9 What can I say  To ever thank Him for His grace?
I’ll take my place  Among His saints,
And join my tongue in word and song.
Oh, taste and see, Praise God with me!

(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.)
