The Ringing of the Bells and The Welcome

Praise the One Who Breaks the Darkness (849)

Praise the One who breaks the darkness

With a liberating light;

Praise the One who frees the pris'ners

Turning blindness into sight.

Praise the One who preached the Gospel,

Healing ev'ry dread disease,

Calming storms, and feeding thousands

With the very Bread of peace.

Praise the One who blessed the children

With a strong, yet gentle word;

Praise the One who drove out demons

With the piercing two-edged sword.

Praise the one who brings cool water

To the desert's burning sand;

From this Well comes living water

Quenching thirst in ev'ry land.

Let us praise the Word incarnate,

Christ, who suffered in our place.

Jesus died and rose victorious

That we may know God by grace.

Let us sing for joy and gladness,

Seeing what our God has done;

Let us praise the true Redeemer,

Praise the One who makes us one.

Invocation and Opening Sentences

Pastor:           En el nombre del Padre, y del Hijo, y del Espíritu Santo.

People:          Amen.


Pastor:           In the presence of God, who sees our hearts and our minds, let us confess our sin;

People:          we confess that we are captive to the power of sin that dwells within us. We put ourselves first and others last. What we think will make us happy leaves us longing for more. Even when we want to do what is good, we find ourselves doing the opposite. Rescue us from death's grip on our lives, and raise us up day by day, that we may be alive to God in Christ Jesus.

Pastor:           Señor, ten piedad de nosotros.

People:         Señor, ten piedad de nosotros.

Pastor:           Cristo, ten piedad de nosotros.

People:         Cristo, ten piedad de nosotros.

Pastor:           Señor, ten piedad de nosotros

People:         Señor, ten piedad de nosotros

(Silent Prayer) (Momento de Oración Personal)

Pastor:           Sisters and brothers, all have fallen short of the glory of God; therefore we are justified by God's grace as a gift. Nothing can separate us from the love of God in + Christ Jesus, in whom we have forgiveness of sin, life, and salvation.

People:         Amen.

The Prayer of the Day

Pastor:           The Lord be with you.

People:          And also with you.

Pastor:           Let us pray

People:          God, our light and our salvation:

illuminate our lives, that we may see your goodness in the land of the living, and looking on your beauty may be changed into the likeness of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen!


Jeremiah 31:7-9

This is what the Lord says: “Sing with joy for Jacob; shout for the foremost of the nations. Make your praises heard, and say, ‘Lord, save your people, the remnant of Israel.’ See, I will bring them from the land of the north and gather them from the ends of the earth. Among them will be the blind and the lame, expectant mothers and women in labor; a great throng will return. They will come with weeping; they will pray as I bring them back. I will lead them beside streams of water on a level path where they will not stumble, because I am Israel’s father, and Ephraim is my firstborn son.

Reader:          This is the Word of the Lord.

People:          Thanks be to God!

Hebrews 7:23-28

Now there have been many of those priests, since death prevented them from continuing in office; but because Jesus lives forever, he has a permanent priesthood. Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them. Such a high priest truly meets our need; one who is holy, blameless, pure, set apart from sinners, exalted above the heavens.  Unlike the other high priests, he does not need to offer sacrifices day after day, first for his own sins, and then for the sins of the people. He sacrificed for their sins once for all when he offered himself. For the law appoints as high priests men in all their weakness; but the oath, which came after the law, appointed the Son, who has been made perfect forever.

Reader:          This is the Word of the Lord.

People:          Thanks be to God

Mark 6:46-52

Then they came to Jericho. As Jesus and his disciples, together with a large crowd, were leaving the city, a blind man, Bartimaeus (which means “son of Timaeus”), was sitting by the roadside begging. When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” Many rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.” So they called to the blind man, “Cheer up! On your feet! He’s calling you.” Throwing his cloak aside, he jumped to his feet and came to Jesus. “What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus asked him. The blind man said, “Rabbi, I want to see.” “Go,” said Jesus, “your faith has healed you.” Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road.

Pastor:            This is the Gospel of the Lord.

People:          Praise to You, O Christ. 

The Apostle’s Creed

    I believe in God, the Father Almighty maker of heaven and earth.

    And in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell.  The third day he rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty. From thence he will come to judge the living and the dead.

    I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Christian Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of  the body, and the life everlasting.

Sermon Hymn: Just As I Am Without One Plea (570)

Just as I am, without one plea

But that Thy blood was shed for me

And that Thou bidd'st me come to Thee,

O Lamb of God, I come, I come.

Just as I am and waiting not,

To rid my soul of one dark blot,

To Thee, whose blood can cleanse each spot,

O Lamb of God, I come, I come.

Just as I am, though tossed about

With many a conflict, many a doubt,

Fightings and fears within, without,

O Lamb of God, I come, I come.

Just as I am, Thou wilt receive,

Wilt welcome, pardon, cleanse, relieve;

Because Thy promise I believe,

O Lamb of God, I come, I come.

Just as I am; thy love unknown

Has broken ev'ry barrier down;

Now to be Thine, yea, Thine alone,

O Lamb of God, I come, I come.


The Prayers of the Church

(After Lord in Your Mercy all respond with Hear our Prayer)

The Lords 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.


Prayer Song: Alabare!

Alabaré,...alabaré,...alabaré a mi Señor.

The Service of the Sacrament

Pastor:            The Lord be with you.

People:          And also with you.

Pastor:            Lift up your hearts.

People:          We lift them to the Lord. 

Pastor:            Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

People:         It is right to give Him thanks and praise. 

Pastor:            It is truly right, our duty and our salvation, always and everywhere to give You thanks, holy Father, eternal God. From sunrise to sunset this day is holy, for Christ has risen from the tomb and has scattered the darkness of death with light that will not fade. The risen Lord walks with us and makes himself known in the breaking of the bread. And though the night will overtake the day, you summon us to live in endless light, the unending Sabbath of the Lord. So, with choirs of angels and with the heavenly host, we proclaim your glory!

People:         Amen!

The Prayer of Thanksgiving

Pastor:           Blessed are You, Lord of heaven and earth, for You have had mercy on those whom You created and sent Your only-begotten Son into our flesh to bear our sin and be our Savior. With repentant joy, we receive the salvation accomplished for us by the all-availing sacrifice of His body and His blood on the cross. Gathered in the name and the remembrance of Jesus, we beg You, O Lord, to forgive, renew, and strengthen us with Your Word and Spirit. Grant us to faithfully eat His body and drink His blood as He bids us to in His own testament. Gather us together from the ends of the earth to celebrate, with all the faithful, the marriage feast of the Lamb in His kingdom, which has no end. Receive our prayers; deliver and preserve us. To You alone be all glory, honor, and worship, now and forever. Amen!

The Lamb of God

Lamb of God, You take away the sin of the world;

have mercy on us.

Lamb of God, You take away the sin of the world;

have mercy on us.

Lamb of God, You take away the sin of the world;

grant us peace.


The Consecration


The Acclamation and The Invitation

Pastor:           As often as we eat of this bread and drink from this cup, we proclaim your Death, O Lord, and profess your Resurrection until you come again.

People:          Christ has died. Christ is risen. Christ will come again.

Pastor:           Behold the Lamb of God, behold Jesus who takes away the sins of the world. Blessed are those called to the supper of the Lamb.

People:          Lord, I am not worthy to receive you, but only say the word and I shall be healed.




Thank the Lord

Thank the Lord and sing His praise;

tell everyone what He has done.

Let everyone who seeks the Lord,

rejoice and proudly bear His name.

He recalls His promises, and leads His people forth in joy

with shouts of thanksgiving. Alleluia, alleluia.


Post-Communion Prayer

We give thanks to You, almighty God, that You have refreshed us through this salutary gift, and we implore You, that of Your mercy, You would strengthen us in faith toward You and in fervent love toward one another; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.




The Blessing


Recessional Hymn: 10,000 Reasons


Bless the Lord, O my soul,

O... my soul, worship his holy name.

Sing like never before, O my soul;

I’ll worship your holy name.

The sun comes up, it’s a new day dawning,

It’s time to sing your song again.

Whatever may pass, and whatever lies before me,...

Let me be singing when the evening comes. [chorus]

You’re rich in love and you’re slow to anger;

Your name is great and your heart is kind.

For all your goodness, I will keep on singing;...

Ten thousand reasons for my heart to find.   [chorus]

And on that day, when my strength is failing,

The end draws near, and my time has come;

Still, my soul will sing your praise unending...

Ten Thousand years, and then forevermore!   [chorus X2]

Worship your holy name

Lord, I’ll worship your holy name!
