LISTEN TO GOD’S WORD Pastoral Prayer & 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 debts as we forgive our debtors, And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.
Lighting of the Candles Placement of the Bible Prayer of Confession Merciful God, you call us to love our enemies and to pray for the people who persecute us. You tell us not to seek retribution, but to turn the other cheek. Yet in this world, we more often long for revenge and wish to strike back. It is far too easy for us to curse others than it is to bless them. Forgive us for our sins that grow from a desire for retaliation and for all the things that we think, feel, and do that seek retribution. Make us to be people of grace and blessing, we pray. Hear us now in the quietness of our hearts as we confess our sins to you… Assurance of God’s Forgiveness Congregational Response† Amazing Grace Life of the Congregation

In a pluralistic culture, in which everyone is right and no one is wrong, the Christian story claims certain truths to be foundational and absolute. In this four-week series, pastors Mark Brewer and Chuck Roberts will explore the person of Jesus, the credibility of the Bible, the building blocks of personal faith, and how to talk about the hope of the Christian faith. Begins today. peachtreechurch.org/foundationaltruth
