THE WONDERFUL SECURITY OF GOD’S FAMILY

CHRIST’S RESURRECTION ASSURES OUR RESURRECTION

The Sermon: Romans 8: 14-17

Those who are led by the Spirit are sons of God. For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship.  And by Him we cry, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit Himself testified with our spirit  that we are God’s children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs – heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in His sufferings in order that we may also share in His glory.

We Bring Our Gifts Of Faith And Love For Our Savior

The Communion Preparation (Pages 7-9 In Supplement)

The Distribution Of The Holy Sacrament
(Because God’s Word presents the reception of this Sacrament as a most intimate expression of both spiritual fellowship with God and confessional fellowship with one another, we ask that only those who have publicly professed such unity with us by membership at Berea or another CLC congregation come forward. This is an expression of our faith, not a judgment of the hearts of others. Anyone seeking a church home or having questions is invited to speak with the Pastor.)

The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father, Who art in heaven. Hallowed be Thy Name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation. But deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen.

The Benediction
