OPENING SENTENCES Pastor: Jesus said: I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. People: Just as Christ has loved us, let us love one another.
Pastor: This is the day when Christ, our Passover Lamb, surrendered himself to those who would kill him, setting us free from sin and death forever. This is the day when Christ, our Teacher and Lord, knelt down to wash the disciplesâ€™ feet, showing us how to love and serve one another. This is the day, when Christ, the bread of heaven, shared a holy meal with his followers, offering a feast of abundant life and grace for all. Let us pray together: People: O God, your love is embodied in Jesus Christ, who washed disciplesâ€™ feet on the night of his betrayal. Wash us from the stain of sin, so that, in hours of danger, we may not fail, but follow your Son through every trial, and praise him always as Lord and Christ, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen. *HYMN

*PRAYER OF CONFESSION Eternal God, whose covenant with us is never broken, we confess that we fail to fulfill your will. Though you have bound yourself to us, we will not bind ourselves to you. In Jesus Christ you serve us freely, but we refuse your love and withhold ourselves from others. We do not love you fully or love one another as you command. In your mercy, forgive and cleanse us. Lead us once again to your table and unite us to Christ, who is the bread of life and the vine from which we grow in grace. *All who are able are invited to stand.
*KYRIE Pastor: People: Pastor:
Lord, have mercy. Christ, have mercy. Lord, have mercy.
*ASSURANCE OF FORGIVENESS *RESPONSE

I Choose Love Mark A. Miller
The Chancel Choir
In the midst of pain, I choose love. In the midst of pain, sorrow falling down like rain, I await the sun again, I choose love. In the midst of war, I choose peace. In the midst of war, hate and anger keeping score, I will seek the good once more, I choose peace. When my world falls down, I will rise. When my world falls down, explanations can't be found, I will climb to holy ground, I will rise. In the midst of pain, I choose love.
“Taken, Blessed, Broken, Given”
THE LORD’S SUPPER INVITATION GREAT THANKSGIVING One: The Lord be with you. Many: And also with you. One: Lift up your hearts. Many: We lift them to the Lord. One: Let us give thanks to the Lord, our God. Many: It is right to give God thanks and praise. The prayer continues…
LORD’S PRAYER (‘debts’ and ‘debtors’) 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.
